  • 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.

  • Summary: I build high end PC's with speeds up to 5.5 GHz for games, CAD, and Simulators. and although I have these very systems running in my Home/Office - It's the AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition I choose for my personal system. I pair it with the M4A89GTD Pro/USB3 from ASUS and HAF Tower, 8GB RAM and a smiple air cooler. Why? simple, I multi task a lot. With the 555 unlocked and running four cores it's bullet proof. The 555 BE is like no other.

It did me well!

  • 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. I was happy just having all 4 cores at stock speed, it definitely saved me money. This was my 2nd great experience with an AMD CPU, so I stuck with them when I upgraded last fall.

  • 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

  • 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. If your not lucky, you still have a really fast and powerful chip.

  • Summary: I bought this for a budget gaming cpu. It is unloackable to a Quad Core. Even at stock cloccks the cpu is fast. This is the Black Edition so it is very overclockable.

No luck unlocking but still great!

  • Summary: I've had this processor since March of this year and i have to say that this chip is awesome. Bought this with the intention to overclock but the stock speed is more than enough at the moment. Runs all my applications very smoothly as well as my games (most games are optimized for dual core CPU's so most people don't need a quad core yet).
