Phenom Black Edition ROCKS!

boysenberries1, Ebay
9 February 2014
  • 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.

Unlocks - But Plenty Fast Stock

  • 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.

You can't go wrong with AMD

D. Andrews, Amazon

  • 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...

noob's first time

B. Swaback, Amazon
16 November 2011
  • 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.

Awsome Processor!

Boyson, Amazon
3 November 2011
  • 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.
