Summary: This CPU has handled multiple app's. with ease in the two years that it has been operating in my HP microtower. That's why I've decided to use this new one in a project that I'm working on. Sure, there are faster processors but this one serves it's purpose nicely.

Summary: Just bought this processor for a budget build and it works magnificently with the exception of the heatsink/fan. Booted up Ubuntu 12.04 and after a couple of hours of light use (browsing, exploring Ubuntu, playing a couple youtube videos) the pc shut itself off. I then cracked the case open and discovered the heat sink was incredibly hot so let it cool I and started it back up, discovering that the fan worked (rotated), but was not really blowing any air.
Summary: what is not written anywhere and is very important is that this cpu comes with fan heat sink and installation bracket everything you need i ordered a fan/bracket i did not need this cpu comes with everything needed to get the job done!!!
