Summary: I have been using this processor for a few years in a htpc. Mine does indeed easily unlock to four cores and stress tests just fine. I left in in dual core mode because I don't need any more power. It is very fast the way it comes, you wont be disappointed.
Summary: I realize this processor is generations behind the latest and greatest, but it certainly is nothing to laugh at. I currently have this processor as the brain of my "3D theater controller" computer, which is hooked up to a projector. I have had this particular computer running non stop for many years without any issues; I will always go with AMD for my processor choice. Remember to upgrade your cooling fan to further prolong the life of your processor...
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: Length:: 0:21 Mins 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: Added bonus was able to unlock 2 more cores with the motherboard BIOS. Running in normal mode because I'm using it as a FreeBSD file server. As one on the reviewers noted: make sure whatever processor you choose, make sure it's design or certified for you motherboard. I almost got the 125w version of this processor and it would have not worked in my motherboard.
