Great Processor, until it occasionally freaks out.
15 March 2014
Summary: I feel it has a few little things that I can't quite put my finger on that makes it inferior than my old phenom quad processor, like this wasn't manufactured by the official company and was instead built by someone in their garage or bought on the black market somewhere as I received it in a sorry looking package with no official papers or packaging. Not even an AMD logo anywhere.
Works great! My first quad-core 64-bit system. I am Happy!

Summary: I replaced my Athlon(TM) II 260 dual-core processor with this quad core processor on my HP Desktop. It was an easy install and it worked great the first time. I also upgraded to 64-bit Win7 and added 4GB RAM. Somehow I got an increase of 6GB of RAM instead of just 4GB. I don't know if it's because the processor provided extra RAM or because the 64-bits allowed for more memory location addresses than the previous 32-bits, but I am extremely happy with the results!
Summary: GOT THIS TODAY AND ALREADY LOVING IT BOOSTED MY PREFORMANCE IN GAMING 100% GET DOUBLE THE FOS AND CAME 4 DAYS BEFORE THE ESTIMATED DATE WOW USED TO GET 30FPS IN COD GHOSTS NOW GET 70-to 120 FPS WORKS LIKE A CHARM!!!!
Summary: I'll have to back this cpu since I've used it since mid 2011. So far this cpu has performed well for the budget gamer that I am. I have a gtx660sc and 12gigs of DDR3 and I am able to play BF3 at 45-60 FPS, never a slow down with my setup, now crysis 3 without overclocking of my cpu and gpu has knocked my frames down, but still playable.
Summary: Great CPU works like it suppose to. Installed on a Gigabyte M68M MB with 4GB of ram and running windows 7 Pro. I am able to play most moderate games and it seems to handle my daily tasks with ease.
Summary: With a Cooler Master 212+ I had this thing stable at a 3.7 GHz overclock. Since it's a 95 watt TDP, the temps max out at 58* Celcius with all 4 cores loaded w/Prime95 with this 20% overclock. Couldn't be more happy, was able to turn a $100 processor into one worth about $150.
