Summary: I've been happy with the Athlon II X2 265. I'm not a gamer or a video editor, so budget is more important than speed. This processor is inexpensive while still offering dual cores and more-than-adequate speed for the average user.
Great Home Theater Processor, amazing stock speeds.
4 August 2011
Summary: Amazing Processor for the price. 3.3GHz stock clock speeds at such a low voltage makes for an amazing home theater processor. Very impressed. Bought this for use in my new home theater PC and it works flawlessly. Room to overclock it as well but with stock speeds of 3.3GHz there's really no need. Runs cool, takes up very little power. One of the best home theater processors for the price that I was able to find.
Summary: I bought this cpu to upgrade from an Athlon II X2 235e that runs at 2.7ghz. The board that i'm using currently doesn't support overclocking and only supports 89 watt processors so I found this as a safe & cheap way to hit the over 3ghz mark. This CPU runs extremely cool and is a nice touch for my htpc/budget gaming machine.
If your AM3 socket mobo only has a 65w TDP, what else would you get?
1 February 2011
Summary: If you have one of those rare budget or value AM3 socket mobo's that only has a TDP max of 65w, your options become fairly limited. The decision came down to a slower triple or quad core of 65w TDP or this one. For $70, the price to performance ratio, I went with this one. Windows Experience Index yields a processor subscore of 6.6 for this processor.
Summary: I have used AMD processors for may years and have never had a bad one or been disappointed. This one is super fast, and very low on power consumption. Installation was a snap. Don't know how they do it but I love this processor and will stick with AMD forever. Thanks to Amazon for a great price and fast shipment.
Excerpt: Habe den Prozessor jetzt seit einem Monat, und ich kann nicht klagen. Rennt wie Sau, habe mir dazu ein ASRock N68-S3 UCC nForce 630a AM3 µATX zum freischalten der 4 Kerne geholt, funktioniert aber leider nicht, aber bei der Leistung des Prozzi ist es auch nicht wirklich notwendig. Übertaktet habe ich ihn auf satte 3,7 Ghz bekommen, allerdings sollte man dies NICHT mit dem Standardlüfter tun, ich besitze daher den Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev 2, der nicht nur Leistung...
