Summary: Fast, clean performance, I highly suggest this processor. Delivery was also fairly quick. This comes with a heatsink fan if you were curious! Installs very easy into an FM1 board. Make sure you have a board with integrated graphics or have a graphics card!
Summary: This little, inexpensive processor really performs. I have it in a machine with an AMD HD6850 video card and it handles all gaming I can throw at it, turned all the way up. It is suprisingly fast. At this point, the best bang for the buck processor I have ever used. Despite the Athlon II label, this processor has almost nothing in common with most of the other processors that have the Athlon II name. It is much closer to an A series processor than most other Athlon IIs.
Summary: I've owned one of these in a ASrock A75 Pro4 motherboard for a little over half a year now (since January) and I got to say, for the price its great, and it can somewhat compete with intel at least up to their i3 processors. sure, it doesn't have the best benchmarks, but for the price its selling for currently it is one of the better desktop processors and also one of the cheapest (if not The cheapest quad core).
Summary: I received this chip from Circuit City via Amazon. It arrived with an ASUS F1A75-M PRO and some 1600MHz DDR3 memory that was listed as compatible with the motherboard on the ASUS website. I should have bench tested it before putting it in the case because the system did not even make it to the first stage of the boot up sequence (I got absolutely no signal to either monitor I had connected when powering it up, yet all the fans and turned on and IDE drives booted up).
