Summary: Reliable chip, no problems. Had to apply a good amount of thermal paste, to dissipate the heat. I'm not saying it runs hotter than it should, and the fan that came with our very obsolete computer can handle the extra heat well. But it does put off a lot more heat than the very, very old single core cpu we had before. price was good, delivery was good as always.
Summary: I purchased this Processor in September 2012, in Refurbished condition For 30.00 + Tax. i have an H.P. Pavilion a1310n P.C. from 2006, that i just pulled off a shelf. and i laughed when i fired it up and realized it was a single Core... this processor was available as an upgrade from H.P. for the stock ASUS A8AE-LE motherboard (the HP/Compaq "in house" designation is: Amberine M-GL6E) and I researched the motherboard specifications, just to be sure that it is compatible.
Summary: I got this along with an asus system board at a lower cost on ebay and 60 of these boards with the processor were sold and pulled out of unused machines. The tech they had helped me set up the board for free over the phone. [...] They sell the board, processor, cpu fan, heat sink and the back plate.
Summary: Ich bin mit der Leistung der CPU sehr zufrieden jedoch stürtzt er bei einem 400 watt netzteil das nicht von einem Marknhersteller kommt öfters ab, deshalb empfielt es sich eher ein 500 Watt netzteil zu verwenden oder ein ausreichend Dimensioniertes 400 watt netzteil. Ingesamt bin ich dennoch sehr zu frieden da er seinen Zweck erfüllt.
