Summary: I have a m2n-sli deluxe motherboard and had a dual core 6000+ processor and upgraded to this with the 5001 bios. This processor is a monster. This new processor with a nvidia 8800gts 640mb graphics card on far cry 2 increased the framerate almost 20 fps. on crysis I can play it in directx 10 mode with everything on high in 1024x768 where before I can only play in directx9 on medium settings. On automatic settings on my motherboard it booted up fine.

Summary: All the power I expected, increased my framerate by about 2 times in Far Cry 2's benchmark mode. It was a Black edition CPU which wasn't mentioned which means the clock stepper is unlocked and it's free to overclock.
Summary: Best CPU available for AM2+. It will overclock to 3.8Ghz, but even if you aren't interested, its still faster than the Athlon X4 due to 6MB L3 cache. Under $100, you really can't beat this. If you are looking for an upgrade but can't run the X4 955 on your current motherboard, don't hesitate. Buy it.
