Good buy.

  • Summary: A drop in replacement for a dual core, runs MUCH faster, but also a little hot. This is an issue of the small enclosure, NOT this product!

Good Processor, tiny heat sink and fan

Dwight, Amazon

  • Summary: cpu works fine, haven't found an unlock for the 4th core yet. The heat sink and fan that came with it were tiny, much to small to keep this unit cool.The base of the heat sink barely covered 50% of the surface area of the processor.

Whoa! says X3 but u can get X4

  • Summary: I installed onto a "As Rock N68C-S UCC" motherboard. In the bios settings, I switched it to unlock the 4th core. So it's not jus simply X3. It's now X4. Significant improvements in computer. I still need to upgrade RAM, power supply and even graphics card. 4th Dec. 2013 Still no problems, the use of the 4th core with WIN7 OS is fine. No complaints. My PC works as fast as ever.

Value CPU

Jake Abed, Amazon
2 June 2013
  • Summary: I chose this CPU for several reasons: 1) It is cheap. 2) You can, with the right motherboard, unlock the fourth core. This makes a it a wee bit more powerful and means more power for your dollar. 3) It's an AM3 socket and my motherboard supports AM3+ so it is possibly to keep upgrades in mind for the future without completely having to rebuild the rig. That can make a big difference when upgrading.

Good processor

J. Clark "Pbeyes", Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Haven't had it very long, but am quite pleased so far; it has done everything I have asked it to do so far - and with reasonable speed. I give it 4 because I don't know what perfect is on processors.. But, again, I am quite pleased with it.

Perfect for the situation

Neal, Amazon

  • Summary: A friend of mine needed to upgrade his single core processor but didn't have a gaming motherboard, so this one is just powerful enough that it handles most games but not so powerful that the motherboard is strained in any way. Fantastic price, quick delivery, pre-applied thermal paste(however I scrape it off and replace it with arctic silver, I think it's a handy idea), all around a fantastic deal.

Cheap and does the job.

Mr. J. E. Dagless, Amazon
14 May 2012
  • Summary: Needed a change over the old 4200+ 939 chip I was using for my work PC. Didnt want to spend a lot, just wanted something a little more up to date that would give me a better motherboard selection. I like budget AMD boards over Intel ones as you can get eSATA/USB3/HDMI etc. when on the Intel board you still get useless serial and parallel ports. Anyway I'm used to unlocking as I've run a old Phenom II 720 as a quad at 3.6GHZ for a few years.

Great Value. Not as fast as an Intel i3

zerinsakech, Ebay
17 April 2012
  • Summary: Great CPU for the price it comes at! I was working on a budget Gaming rig for my friend, and decided to go AMD on his build. For 3 cores and a low price I went with this one. The CPU I bought was unlocked to have 4 cores, so it's a double bonus, and it performs just fine on the Asus board I bought. I plan to upgrade this to an AM3+ in the future, but for now, this CPU will do just fine.
