Perfect for the situation

  • 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.

  • 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

  • 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.

Amazing for the price!

RedScorch, Amazon

  • Summary: Got this CPU to replace my busted Phenom 960T, with the stock cooler I got it to unlock the fourth core and OC it to 3.5 making it a Phenom X4 B55 3.5ghz. This CPU lacks the L3 cache but still matches the 960T for 2/3 the price, also the 960T was unstable for me and not only didnt let me unlock the 6 cores but also crashed at anything over 3.2ghz. Overall this CPU is great and very stable.

Precio/Rendimiento

  • Summary: Este es un CPU de precio ajustado que da un excelente rendimiento. En mi caso, con una VGA HD6870 puedo jugar sin problemas BF3, Dirt3, AvP, BFBC2 y otros sin sufrir cargas lentas. Para personas de presupuesto recortado, es un excelente CPU. PD: Con el soporte en la Tarjeta Madre, este X3 puede pasar a ser un X4 sin complicación alguna.

X4 on the cheap

jx, Amazon
19 February 2012
  • Summary: The title says it all:) Just enabled the dormant core in BIOS and voila. However, the temps went up a lot, and the stock cooler is not up to the task - 73C on full load is a bad idea. I have a spare aftermarket cooler somewhere in the closet, so no biggie - will put on this evening and watch the temps.
