Phenomenal, muscular chip that brings the goods!
13 September 2014
Summary: Phenomenal. Have an older Gigabyte motherboard and this breathed new life in an HTPC. Very responsive now, and powers through multi-tasking. Have not unlocked it because it does exactly what I need right now!! I have also built 3 other rigs using Phenom II x 2's and I consider this chip a huge value play.
Summary: Love AMD and all the cores unlock on this Black Edition. Overclocks and runs well. I have been using AMD processors for a long time. I dislike the heatsink mounting apparatus on Intel boards, it does not lock in well and feel secure.
Summary: looks like an awesome product, i havent broken the seal of authentication yet. but it looks good from the outside lol. the specs are amazing! and im sure it'll work perfect :) Update 6/1/14: Had this for almost 2 years and it's still a great product. Surprisingly I got 4.2Ghz OC out of this CPU........and stable! I highly recommend it.
Summary: Well I just replaced a motherboard in my acer aspire 4400+ with a msi 890GXM-G65 saw this processor listed on amazon as an x2 phenom black edition read the reviews and decided to give the bio unlock a try and sure enough now running a AMD Phenom II x4 Deneb B60 the 6mb L3 cache and stable oc at 3.850 max stable at 4.2.. Got my money's worth for sure.. The processor, oc'd 8gb 1600 ram and board push my low end zotac 240gt zone to its max..
Summary: affordable, fast and able to overclock and unlock cores. i love this processor and all its colours and shapes. me and this cpu saved a bus full of preschoolers from a frozen creek. this cpu saved my mother and killed my father. long live AMD.
Summary: I am a noob especially when it comes to building a computer from scratch. I have been "playing" around with them like swapping hard drives, adding video cards and accessing the BIOS (even though it wouldn't let me do anything). So here is what I did and what my experience was. First off, I did quite a bit of research before I pulled the string on anything. I originally was going to get the Phenom 555 and saw last minute that there was a 560 out there.
Summary: This processor works great for a "office" pc, no gaming...yet. Internet and basic applications open and run without any issue. I usually use Intel CPUs but I am very happy with this AMD processor.
Great Processor Good Vaule would reccomend to all my friends.

Summary: This is the best processor ive every had and it definetly is just as good as the intel i5 processor. I put this in my Pc i finished build and it runs amazingly. Its a great price compared to stupid intel.
Summary: Does more than what i expected. I have it on an asus board that has cpu unlocker along with overclocking. I did not overclock it as this thing rips and would just be wasting the extra power but i am disappointed that it did no unlock to an extra cores. I have read that others have unlocked to a quad. With my luck, it did not... bummer but i am overall happy and satisfied.
