Price is high and puts out a lot of heat but works well for its age.
6 September 2012
Summary: Bottom line: Pricey for what it is but works well for its age. Word of warning, this is a HOT running CPU. At 125 watts be ready with a water or large air cooling system. Overall its a good CPU for its age. Scores a 6.3 in WEI, and plays BF3 on med settings AA @ 4x @ 40FPS. (I have it mated to a 9800GT.) Its an old system but solid. The price is a little high for what it is but if all you want to do is upgrade your CPU than this is the best route to take.
Summary: Causes stability issues, freezing about 5 times in a 2 day period and then works great for a month. cant figure that out, but other than that this thing rocks! improved frame rates by a consistant 300%. Everest says i run a cool 30-35C at all times. High airflow case helps that... I do not overclock.
Summary: Ce processeur, même si il a deux ou trois générations de retard en terme de cycle de produit informatique, dispose d'une puissance et de performances ludiques suffisantes pour convenir à tous les usages. Je ne crois pas à la surenchère marketing sur les "derniers plus puissants" processeurs, car personne ne les exploitent vraiment. Ce produit remplit parfaitement son rôle et a encore de beaux jours devant lui pour remettre à jour une configuration sans se ruiner.
Summary: I am currently running this on a Gigabyte 785G Micro board with 2x1GB DDR2-800 and it's very stable, but runs a bit hot. Doesn't overclock very well, but this isn't a black edition. I would recommend this to any one on a budget.

24 April 2009
Excerpt: "...up for me from my AMD Athlon 3200, and I guess my problem was my expectations were too high. It was the first significant upgrade for me in about 3 years, so I wanted my pc to fly. The packaging was inspiring, nice sleek black box with the cpu chip visible on the side. I jumped into the box quickly and had the chip inserted into my mobo following the step by step instructions which were clear and simple. Remember, as with all stock cpus, this one ...
