Summary: Great cpu for a low power MITX desktop build. Runs fine with a 150W PSU. My build- MB: ASUS M4A88T-I CPU: AMD X2 240e SSD: ADATA S599 64GB HDD: Hitachi 320GB ODD: Samsung slimline drive CASE: Antec ISK300-150 RAM: GSKILL 4GB DDR3-1333
Pros: Nice, low power dual core. Plenty fast for most everything.
Summary: Used the Asus core unlocker feature but no joy, just a two core. This processor, above mentioned MB, INWIN ITX case and 4 gigs of GSkill ram has been a great upgrade over my old Media PC.
Pros: Excellent choice for mini ITX builds due to the low power consumption while still offering decent speed. Teams up very well with the Asus M4A88T-I MB. Runs pretty cool with stock Heat sink and fan,even in very small case. OC's easily and runs stable.
Cons: A little pricey compared to the regular 240.
