Summary: Been running for almost 6 months without a problem. It didn't come with a stock heatsink fan. Bought this to replace my old Athlon II. Runs all my games perfectly, photoshop runs at loads at reasonable speed, Sony Vegas Pro renders at a reasonable speed.
Summary: Ordered this as an upgrade processor for my current system. Nice peformance bump in all my current apps and games. Only issue was one of heat. The fan that came with the processor is quite good, with liquid cooling and large cooling surfaces.
Intel > AMD, except for video encoding on a budget + overclocking

Pentium 2120 is a better processor, but if you need more logical cores for video encoding instead of video gaming or general usage, than phenom...
Summary: good processor for the price, i bought it to build my new clon pc, it runs very good, not overclocked yet because i didnt need to do it for the use i gave it, who like AMD processors nows this but, im going to resume it: PROS: - very good perfomance & speed - great value - durability - high profile...
Summary: First time i bought from AMD have always been an intel person but since AMD is much cheaper i decided to try it. the shipping was decent took five days to get here, the shape of the box was a little wrinkled but nothing to bad.
Summary: I got this CPU for a new budget gaming build. Its essentially this CPU, an ASUS Micro ATX AM3 board, 4GB DDR-1600 memory, and a 5770 GPU. I am using RaidMax SMilodon case, stock cooler and Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste. Under stock conditions the GPU ran at 35C idle, and 49-50C load.
