Great price, DAW performance and pizzazz!

Ann J., Newegg

  • Summary: I use the system for a Digital Audio Workstation (DAW). While rendering, the machine runs at approx. 80% CPU capacity and utilizes ~12 MBs of RAM for usually 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Case temps run about 39C (100F), but fall to 31C (87F) ambient within 10 minutes.
  • Pros: It may be a little early to write a review about my entire system, but I had to write concerning these chips. Wow!!!

Great workstation chip

  • Summary: For those looking for a C32 CPU cooler... don't. C32 takes the same coolers as the older socket F. 3.5" bolt spacing, they are identical. Most C32 motherboards also come with brackets that allow all AM2/AM3 coolers to work too.
  • Pros: Great workstation chip, 8 cores, 8 MB cache, good pricing!
  • Cons: None
