3.9 ghz Phenom II x4 for a 100$

Dustin M., Amazon
22 February 2012
  • Summary: i was cruzin around looking for a cheap upgrade to pep up an older system. found this on amazon for about a 100$. While it has no L3 Cache, it does come stock at 3.2ghz, which alone makes this a great deal. But alas AMD has always made processors that go beyond the limits of factory settings.

Solid Processor, but may want to spend a little more $$$

JMS, Amazon

  • Summary: No complaints on the processor so far. Easy to install (given you read the instructions) and runs Premiere Pro CS5 just fine. Bought this CPU to edit footage from my T2i and I'm blow away by the performance--it's almost real time!

Excellent processor

David L. Cutler "Cheap guy", Amazon
4 May 2011
  • Summary: Needed something that would fit the limitations of my motherboard AM2+ 95W. This fit the bill and has worked flawlessly. It comes with OEM fan which I did not use, preferring my much more robust aftermarket cooling. Good bang for the buck.

Not to bad.

Damien, Amazon

  • Summary: I was really stoked to pop this cpu in my pc. But; who ever shipped it made a big mistake. They shoved the fragile processor inside a small ziploc bag. When i saw it i was like "Uh-Oh". And of course, The pins on the cpu where bent radically.

Fast Processor

Mark R, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • Summary: For the price of this processor, you just can't beat it. Even with the FX (bulldozer) chips out there. Bulldozer is an improvement from this, but not enough to fork out at least a hundred extra dollars.

Amazing CPU for the price

Tony, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • Summary: I had an AMD Athlon X2 2.8GHz before getting this. That dual core worked very well for web browsing and simple programs, but after a year of using Sony Vegas and other intense programs, it was very apparent that it was slowing me down. This CPU seemed like a perfect improvement for a solid price.

quad core upgrade

Laura Oconnor, Amazon
14 January 2011
  • Summary: Just got this processor today to replace an athlon 64 x2 on my ugly yellow Asus M2A-VM motherboard. The official Asus site did not list this processor as compatible with my board, but after reading on some forums that people had luck, I gave it a try.
