Unlocked Then Reverted (Stability Questionable)

Mathew Reuther "author", Amazon
8 September 2011
  • Summary: I'm happy with this processor. I am not SUPER HAPPY though. The reason being there were some stability issues with the build which may or may not have been related to the unlocking of the processor. As it stands the CPU has done an adequate job, so I'm not going to weep over the fact that I ended up reverting to the base configuration, but I would have been more happy with a system that ran unlocked and stable.

Pound for pound champ!

  • Summary: Even though I was able to unlock 1 extra core, having all 4 on caused lots of problems, that's a triple core processor at 3.2Ghz+ (overclocking enabled black edition) with L3 cache. Although the intel i5 and i7 line are better performers, it costs 2-3 times the price, for less than 2-3 times the performance gain. Not that I mind having a less powerful processor as every game I've played on it runs fantastic without slowdowns. AMD has another winner!

Phenom II X2 555

Zack Woodard, Amazon

  • Summary: what can you say, low price, dual core goodness. I tried the core unlocker but got no love, however, the chip has performed well and I would recommend this for an upgrade from an Athlon or a single core system. Obviously, it's not the fastest chip on the block, but is great for the sub-$100 price tag!

Couldn't unlock any cores

Joe Wroblewski, Amazon
31 December 2010
  • Summary: I bought this processor hoping to get an x3 or x4 on the cheap, but it didn't work for me. I've got it paired with the MSI 890GXM-G65 motherboard that supports core unlocking, but the system was highly unstable with either of the two "hidden" cores enabled. Oh well, I knew it was a gamble due to the varied success of core unlocking with this processor but I'm happy with the performance anyway.

  • Summary: This is a decent dual core although expensive it has abilities to overclock and it also has to disabled cores so if bundled with the right motherboard then you can make this a quad core but you will need GOOD COOLING.

  • Summary: Riktigt prisvärd! Kunde låsa upp alla 4 kärnor utan några större bekymmer. Den presterar väldigt bra, och för de här pengarna finns det inget att snacka om. Update: Still going strong!

  • Conclusion: Un excelente micro, revisen en el manual del mother para ver si lo soporta, yo lo uso con un Gigabyte M68M-S2P y funciona perfectamente.
  • Pros: Todo. Hasta ahora no encontre nada que este micro no pueda solucionar.
  • Cons: Hasta ahora ninguno.
