older processor still has some life in it

Joe, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this for some time. Much of the ancillary features have to do with the rest of the system. The speed of the processor will handle and internet task as well as light gaming with a good graphics card. I am currently using this as my DVR and home media server.

Budget dual core processor.

Jeff Foster, Amazon
6 March 2013
  • Summary: This was the budget processor I put in my Media Server a year and a half ago, and it's still going strong. The processor was swapped out for a i3-3220 due to size constraints in the media box, but it lives on in my parent's computer.

OEM installed--needed to swap out due to bluescreens

Justin, Amazon
26 January 2013
  • Summary: This was the OEM processor in a consumer Acer X3400G pc which I bought at Walmart 1.5 years ago. For the last 2 months this machine was experiencing frequent bluescreens. The blue screen codes varied, but would often indicate unaddressed cache errors. Mean time from boot to failure was ~1hr.

Calum B., Newegg
26 March 2012
  • Summary: it's the best budget processor out there
  • Pros: runs cool, never had any load problems despite running multiple DAW's and other audio software, and from time to time a game here and there. cheap too.
  • Cons: the fan on the heatsink is beginning to fail, i'm just replacing the whole heatsink/fan. sounds like a diesel engine half the time. however, this is after over a year and a half of near constant use, audio production and gaming etc, so i'm not complaining. it makes the monitoring software that ca...

Great mid build processor

Anonymous, Newegg
6 January 2012
  • Pros: There was a time that AMD processors had a reputation of running a bit hot but those issues are firmly in the past. AMD processors are always a good "bang for the buck" purchase when building your own PC. This AMD Ahthlon II X2 255 3.1GHz processor has an excellent L2 cache and scores in the high...
