AMD FTW

Joe E., Newegg
5 February 2014
  • Pros: This chip is phenomenal! Go with Phenom. Built my system in 2009 and this chip is still keeping up with all the upgrades that I have done to my rig. It also plays most of the newer games fine around 40-70 fps. I pre-ordered ESO and ran a system check and my rig passed with flying colors.
  • Cons: I can't go to space with it.

Soild

Michael T., Newegg
30 March 2011
  • Pros: About the fastest you can get without going to DDR3 memory Came with decent stock cooler, runs about 5c lower than the Phenom x3 it replaced.
  • Cons: consumes more power than some of the other CPU's hmmm, price dropped $30 a week after I bought it, other than that, its good.

Whoops

Aurael D., Newegg
23 February 2011
  • Summary: @Villageguy you should never have to "push" a CPU into place, it's latched into place by the little lever that's next to the slot.. It should just 'drop' in, if it doesn't, your doing something wrong.. AKA you bought the wrong one for the mobo?
  • Pros: I forgot to add that whatever the trick is they're doing to ddr2 ram actually works, though I don't get it entirely.. My "Windows index rating" went from 7 to 7.4 on my ram after I refreashed it..
  • Cons: n/a

Very good cpu

Mike H., Newegg
14 February 2011
  • Summary: I went from an amd x2 4000 and wow what a difference. This cpu has extended the life of my motherboard and my geforce 8800 gtx. I'm now able to max video settings in start craft 2 and fallout new vegas and I even reinstalled crysis to test it out and yes all graphics are maxed except AA is set to 2,...
  • Pros: It comes with a petty nice heat sink and fan. My case isn't the best with air flow but this processor runs pretty cool. Very fast!
  • Cons: None yet...

Works like a charm

Leonard R., Newegg
11 February 2011
  • Summary: Recommended processor in conjunction with ASUS M4A785-M Motherboard which still uses DDR2 ram, no need to get DDR3 compatible MB as the performance to price of DDR3 ram aint worth it. Never tried the Over clocking on this yet, like to try to get 3.1 ghz with a 5th core unlocked though.
  • Pros: Working good so far, idles around 43c with MB temp of 46c. Runs Black Ops on Max settings, load times in multiplayer is super fast.
  • Cons: Does run a lil warm at 43c idle, normal? Most likely, cant deduct eggs for it.

What a beast

John L., Newegg
26 January 2011
  • Summary: Runs like an absolute champ!
  • Pros: I can't say enough about how well this processor has ran for the past 2+ years. Clocked as high as 3544 completely stable with a Black Widow air cooler, has run everything I have thrown at it more than well, and now it's clocked back to stock going in a computer for my sister :)
  • Cons: $220+ new when I bought it. Yikes!

  • Pros: Phenom Quad Core at a great price. Blazing fast speed. Worked straight out of the box (comes with a decent looking CPU fan as well.) Kicked my WEI in Vista to 5.9 Haven't overclocked it at all, but my PC has been able to run any new/recent game I've thrown at it on highest graphic settings at 30+...
  • Cons: Always could be cheaper and wish I got some extra stickers for when I get a new case.
