Summary: This processor is a basic dual core processor. It works as advertised. It came in a standard padded mailing envelope with bubble wrap and a foam pad for the pins.I was able to get an older AM3 socket computer back to life with no trouble. No bent pins or paste residue to deal with.
Summary: Direct replacement for my single core Sempron 140 (which I tried unlocking but alas could not). No need to change configuration in BIOS nor OS, just one reboot after boot, and so far (been about two weeks, maybe three?) there have been zero issues.
Summary: I received it a few days ahead of time. Popped it in had to boot it off and on a few times for the motherboard to configure the bios for it runs like a champ. After a few hours of running in my AsRock N68C-GS FX board. I went into the bios and unlocked the 2 additional cores after a few tries.

Summary: This CPU has given me many hours of flawless operation. It runs cool, has great processing power, and handles software meant for its bigger cousins like a pro. It is used to play an online game that recommends a 4 core processor but I am able to use the bells and whistles with no problem at all even...
Nice processor for the money, much faster than older pentiums/althons

Summary: This is a very nice processor for the money. Much, much faster than my other pentiums and athlons, and for only 50-60 bucks, seems like a no bainer. I can edit photos/video, surf web and burn CD's/DVD's with no problems (processor in the 50% to 60 range).
Summary: This processor is a great buy if you are looking for a budget no-frills processor. 2 cores. Good speed and an excellent price paired with low power consumption. Great for everyday netsurfing, Office and even gaming. For serious gaming get a 4-core Athlon or Phenom.
Summary: This processor is cheap, runs cool and overclocks well, out of the box with my Biostar Motherboard it scored a 5.7 in Win Vista 64 ! Not much else to say comes with a fan and runs great out of the box ... I would reccomend this to anyone and would buy it again !
Summary: Easy to install, and can be overclocked easily due to its high modifier. Have been able to play Mass Effect to with all the setting on high, Fallout 3 at ultra high, and Crysis on medium. Would be great in an HTPC build.
Summary: The processor was incompatible with the Mobo that I purchased it for (Asus m2npv-vm), kinda expected it since it wasn't on the list for the Mobo, swapped it out with another Mobo (Asus M3m78-VM) and it worked great. It works as it should.
