Still running strong 2 years latter

  • Summary: This is an amazing chip. Some of the chips can be unlocked to add an extra core, mine wasnt one of them. Chip is still as fast today as it was when I installed it. This chip has handled everything I have thrown at it. Audio and video editing, photoshop, and even CAD work have been no problem for this chip.

Terrific

Spread the word, Amazon
12 March 2014
  • Summary: I bought this processor used a couple of years ago. The seller did a great job with it and included a stock cooler which came in handy. He thoughtfully cleaned off all the thermal pasted from the heat sink. This processor has exceeded all my expectations. The best thing about it is that it was unlocked by my motherboard and has four fully functioning cores. I can't say enough good stuff about it.

AMD Phenom II Processor

SGBaker "sgb22741", Amazon
6 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this item and it arrived on schedule. The instructions provided in the box were easy to follow and the Fan/Heatsink were ready to go out of the box. I had no trouble installing it into my motherboard and it worked just great when I fired up the PC. Great product and I would recommend highly.

A good buy

  • Summary: This one was the best buy at the time, considering its price and performances (and power consumption too). It served me so well, even if I was able to unlock only 3 cores with an Asus motherboard, but it depends on luck only, as these processors are downgraded 4-cores cpu for a reason... Mind that you have to buy a bigger cpu cooler/heat sink before any overclocking.

Very pleased. Packaged very well and shipped quick. Excellent condition

  • Summary: This processor is great! Two extra cores to unlock if you have the correct chipset, and overclocks like a champ. Comparing prices with Intel, AMD certainly gives you more bang for you're buck! An Intel chip with similar specs can run you from around $180 up to $290. Granted there are well priced Intel duo core's none, within the Phenom ll's price range have 6mb of L3 cache.

The best value ever on a great performing cpu!

rollablunt420, Ebay

  • Summary: Absolutely the best Bang For The Buck processor available. I bought this cpu for a new build because of its ease of overclocking, and it did so! And as a huge added bonus I was able to unlock the 2 hidden cores (because I chose the right motherboard) and now I have got myself a 4-core black edition processor that runs stable all day long at 3.6GHz with an aftermarket cooler. This could be the greatest performance computer part bargain of all time.

Excellent choice

  • Summary: Since i got this processor I haven't had any flaws at playing, none of the games has ever flicker or anything like it! I haven't overclocked it or anything like it, I always play at 1920x1080 titles like the assassins games, all the need for speed games.

AMD - BLACK EDITION - "Z"

allen_1956, Ebay
30 August 2010
  • Summary: Use plenty of the "GOOP"! Otherwise, you may hear a "snap"! Great product. Depending on the board it's plugged into, determines what can be achieved. Soop-Up the heat-sink, pack-in the RAM and click GO!!!
