Lower cost, Higher performance, lowpower consumption. Not max of AM2+ 95TDW
16 November 2012
Summary: Product works well, greatly improved performance, not enough to be a media server, and low power consumption. Would recommend for anyone looking to bump from dual core to quad core. My mobo supports higher though so for little more i maxed out my board.
Summary: I originally built this computer with the Phenom II X4 905e for design concerns(the case and power supply had been given to me and were underpowered with serious ventilation problems). I needed a low wattage high performance rig and this cpu was a good choice.
Summary: Nice processor. More than twice as fast as my older X2 processor at about the same clock speed, using a third less power. Runs cool and quiet. My previous review indicated the processor died one day after installation. That was incorrect. It turned out to be a bad memory module.
