Summary: I owned this processor for about 4 months. I ran it at AMD 3000+ speeds (10.5x200 = 2100Mhz) at 1.65V. This is the 45W version, there is also a 35W version, which I bought to replace this one. The 35W version is much cooler, it's running at 11x200 right now @1.55V. 35W version is more expensive but if you want to build a powerfull and silent machine, I'll advice the 35W version.
Pros: Low power consumption. High overclockability.
Cons: 35W version of this processor is a better choice.
Excerpt: I used this chip to upgrade my AthlonXP 1700. The performance numbers would suggest a simple 40% speed increase, but for some applications, such as loading windows, my system obviously suffered from other bottlenecks. As for games, Knights of the Old Republic enjoyed a marked increase in frame rates, which is always nice. With some decent borrowed ram, I've managed to run this with a FSB of 190 mhz, which brings the performance up to roughly AthlonXP 2800 levels.
Excerpt: I used one of these before upgrading and i tell you they rock, the performance for the price is amaizing and cant be matched by any other cpu out there i dont think, running at 2.0ghz with a 266 fsb you know that its going to be quick. i had mine running with a msi kt400 chipset motherboard and it was rocking, i upgraded because i had some spare cash but between the 2400 and the 2800 there isnt much difference, the stock heatsink isnt really upto much in the retail...
