  • Summary: This is a very adaptable CPU. For older technology, it's just as speedy & dependable as a "new technology" unit. Mine unlocks to 4 cores with a socket AM3 motherboard which makes it great for everything.

  • Summary: Little, old but still very powerful CPU , with the ability to Overclock to 4 - 4.1 Ghz and with any luck unlock the other 2 cores this CPU can go head to head with most of the new CPU architectures, and believe me it can take abusing quite a lot.

It did me well!

G. Leigh, Amazon
17 March 2013
  • Summary: The ASUS mobo I have this in allowed me to unlock the 3rd and 4th cores with a single key press. It runs stable with all 4 cores running at stock speed. It has stability issues when even slightly overclocked, which I traced to Core 3, which is why it was sold as a 2 core.

  • Summary: I know it's not a intel i5 or i7, but these make for a awesome budget build. Mines running strong and pretty cool as well. I've overclocked to around 4.4ghz with no issues using cool master direct heat pipe 120mm cooler.

Powerful

Jason A. Schmedes "J$", Amazon

  • Summary: AMD makes great processors. I like the Phenoms because they are unlocked. You can activate more cores, overclock it, and change any settings imaginable. If your lucky you can have a four core processor for the price of a two core processor.
