Summary: I purchased this processor to upgrade an older computer that I built 8 years ago. My original plan was to build a new PC, but when I evaluated my needs, I realized I could address my current issues without building a new machine since I use Linux. This processor arrived quickly and in good condition. I installed it and it has been working without any problems. It is a used pull and was properly identified.
Summary: I ordered this cpu because I got a used amd motherboard from another website and that only had a 900MHz AMD Cpu. This cpu is actually slower than the original one that was installed in my motherboard cpu. It freezes up everytime you use the internet and the cpu runs hot over 70.C. Then the cpu quit working and burned a hole through my motherboard! And now I have a non-working motherboard and a defective cpu! Do not buy. Buy a newer cpu model that actually works.
Summary: I ordered this cpu to upgrade froma slower cpu for an older system that I wanted to revive. Job completed added that extra speed I needed to run newer applications and other goodies. The cpu itself was in great condition as promised and worked great! As for delivery comments i'd have to say I was quite surprised to have recieved my cpu before the delivery date got it on the 18th was suppose to be delivered on the 25 so very good service from computer geeks.
Summary: i found the chipset very easy to install in my new elitegroup motherboard.i would reccomend this chip to anyone who is looking for a very easy installation.i have had the chip in my computer for about 6 months with no problems.i have not attempted to over clock it; i heard that they aren't as easy as others. all in all it is a very good product and i look foreward to what AMD has to offer.
Summary: AMD makes a bunch of processors. Some are better than others. This one is affordable, but don't plan on doing much overclocking with this one! I got one up to 1917MHz before toasting it and my board too. My Athlon XP 2400+ does much better. Do your homework if you are planning on building a system. AMD revised the Thoroughbred chip design and added some layers to them. Get the next version, it's a better chip.
