Summary: Item arrived more quickly than I anticipated and there was a tube of heat sink paste in the package that was extra, and appreciated. The processor was exactly as the seller described and using CPUID it read exactly as should for advertised MGz.
A powerfull CPU for older motherboards at a low cost!

Summary: I needed to upgrade my old computer which had a Athlon 2.7 GHz CPU with 1 MB cache memory. The old CPU was to weak to handle my newer graphic card. Though, the motherboard is old and I do not afford to buy new parts so a Phenom II seemed to be the best solution for me.
Summary: This is a really great upgrade if you find that your rebuilt computer it is kind of slow. I actually purchased 2 of these. I liked it so much in one computer I wanted it in the other. Both computers have the same exact mobo.
Summary: The Processor works GREAT!!! and unlocked to a 4 core. My customer is very happy with her new rig, for her Graphic arts. It took her awhile to get to it but since her wireless was going out all the time she us always using it. I hope to do more business with him.
Fast flexible processor that just works. Great value for the money!

Summary: An excellent processor. This processor is listed as a triple core processor. I installed it into an inexpensive Biostar motherboard. With the 3 cores I achieved a Windows Experience score of 6.7. However, once I unlocked the 4th core (making it a quad core processor) the score jumped up to 7.2.
