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.
Totally worth the price! No brainer for upgrading from a dual core.

Summary: Pros: 4 cores, 95W, Compatible with my old Biostar TA770 A2+ SE motherboard (am2/am2+ mobo). Cons: none! Other Thoughts: Bought this used for dirt cheap since everyone probably upgraded on Black Friday :) Was able to drop it into my 3+ year old rig that was running an AMD Athlon X2 6000+ and improved everything dramatically. BF3 was unplayable before and now I can actually play the game smoothly! Totally worth it!
