older processor still has some life in it
24 March 2014
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. It can fully handle delivering HD video to 2 network attached devices, while capturing TV over a tuner card and displaying a basic webpage.
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. It was a great buy a while ago, and it would do well as a budget processor in an AM3 build.
Summary: performs great at stock speeds. and was able to overclock to 3.9 ghz with stock cooler with min & max temps 34c-48c idle and after prime 95 for 3 hrs and bumping the voltage up by 0.10v. i play games like crisis 2 and other block buster titles @ 1400*900 @ max settings with a 550ti 4 gig of ram with an avg of 52 fps in all my games. so all in all, its a great bang for ur buck.
Summary: I wanted a fast dual or multiple core processor at a bargain value and this one fit the bill at under $60.00. And for the record after reading some of the other reviews it arrived in perfect condition and has worked reliably from the start. This processor is fast enough to run a polyphonic Midi organ program with many simultaneously played notes without latency problems. I'm very pleased.
