Summary: I bought this as it is the best processor my motherboard will take and I am really happy with it. Replaces my Sempron 140 and the speed is really noticable. I have 1 single problem though, the fan is really loud and I needed to slow it down though it is still louder than my old one. Other than that, Brilliant.
Summary: This isn't really a Phenom as has no L3 cache. It's really an Athlon 2 X4 655 3.3GHz. Couldn't get a proper Phenom as motherboard will not support a 125 watt CPU. It replaces an athlon x2 250 and has made a large improvement to system performance with the additional 10% clock speed and two extra cores. System feels a lot faster and games like Crysis 2 run a lot smoother. Can recommend this processor. Ebuyer as usual provide great customer service.
