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.
Summary: I used this to replace a free 2010 E Machine EM 1352 CPU I received which had a AMD 160u, which was the worst CPU I ever used...Win 7 performance went from 3.1 to 6.5 out of 8 and must use DDR 3 Ram 1333 mhz and will need a better Power Supply based on Video Card used...
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.
Summary: I bought this AMD Athlon processor mainly because of the price and lower TDP than the AMD Phenom II series. This processor suits my needs and performs remarkably well. I have paired it with an AMD Radeon 5770.
Summary: With two cores and a clock speed of 3.1 GHz, this CPU can do just about anything you need. It also overclocks easily. You can achieve a 20% OC to 3.72GHz using the stock fan and stock voltage, and the temperature under load stays under 60C.
