Bent Pin, Quick RMA

Donald S., Newegg
25 June 2013
  • Summary: RMA process was quick and free. Didn't put me too far behind on my build.
  • Pros: Alright CPU for my mid range build. Performed where it should on the Passmark site.
  • Cons: RMA'd the first one because of 1 bent pin. Was none too impressed with the packaging.

Surprisingly fast!

Totalpay, Newegg
25 November 2012
  • Summary: Will be transferring from my old rig to my new rig (see below) Current Rig ASRock 780GXE Mobo AMD Athlon II x4 645 Quad Core OCZ Reaper DDR2-800, 4gb (2x2gb) 4-4-4-12 Zotac Geforce 9600gt.
  • Pros: Bought this to replace my Phenom 9600 Agena, and what a difference! I was a little worried before I installed it and almost purchased a Phenom II instead for the L3 cache. Well I have came to find out, that L3 cache does not make much of a difference. This CPU impressed me so much, its making the...

Never buy a newegg OEM

Michael P., Newegg
21 November 2012
  • Summary: waste of time and money.
  • Pros: none
  • Cons: DOA thought it was the mobo so when I RMA'ed that and got it back, I was past my 30 days and could not return the processor. contacted AMD directly and they do not cover OEMs.

pretty good cpu so far

Joseph Y., Newegg
2 October 2012
  • Summary: cpu is good but dont go through ups for shipping they throw the packages at me and they take way too long for delivery if you even get youre package without them loosing or damaging it all the time, wich they love to do at ups.
  • Pros: love this cpu so far, it runs great for my temp cpu, going to upgrade soon though to a amd fx 8 core cpu to be future proof.
  • Cons: did not come with a heantsync, and was not properly delivered on time, ordered overnight shipping and got it 7 days later as always with ups overnight garbage, i wish newegg had kept fedex overnight.

athlon ii x4 645

marie o., Newegg
19 September 2012
  • Summary: got it on sale for 70$ shipped , awesome newegg! thanks
  • Pros: Stays cools , 16 idle and 47 under load, paired it with a cheap msi motherboard for 50$. I builded severals gaming machines with these , and I must say I'm impressed with the perfomance of this chip for it's price. A 20-25$ heat sink is suffisant.
  • Cons: I didn't have any bent pint , but the pink foam sometimes gets stuck between the pins, so be sure to remove it with a needle, before it melts under your cpu..

Very adequate CPU

Hilary B., Newegg
17 September 2012
  • Summary: Had a couple of bent pins when I took it out of the container. Not a manufacturing defect, probably happened during shipping somewhere. Straightened them up easily, no eggs off for that, just check your pins before you try to shove it in the socket!
  • Pros: Dropped this on a ASRock 760GM-GS3 to build a budget friendly HTPC w/ a little muscle. Works beautifully so far.
  • Cons: Does not come with a cooler. Not a big deal if you have one, but just something to be aware of. I paired mine with the stock cooler from my FX-8150 build (that system got a liquid cooler) and the temps are very nice. 20C at idle, haven't been able to push it above 28C yet, and the fan is nice and...
