Summary: compre este producto para repotenciar mi vieja pc. PRO: el precio es excelente y el envio fue muy rapido (2 semanas) Contra: viene el cpu solo sin fan cooler stock, pero por el precio lo vale. AMD phenom ii x4 955 es mucho mejor que mi viejo procesador .
Yes it's in it's late life but still a great CPU even for today's tasks

Summary: I upgraded from a phenom 8450 to this , and it was worth every penny , why buy a new system now when all I had to do is get a cpu upgrade save the money to build later and play games in next generation quality for a year or two with what I have now , it's is stepping 3 non BE that uses only 95w , but it needs good cooling , the stock fan got it to 60 after 6 hrs of prime95 , if you have an am2+ with memory and a good gpu get this and your good to go for some time
Summary: I bought this CPU as an upgrade for my hp desktop that had a AMD Athlon ll X2 220 in it. It work well and is a lot faster than my old one. My computer hand no problem finding it after I put it in. If u need a good CPU this one is a very good one for an upgrade.
Summary: Had it for well over a year and never had any problems. PRO Runs games like Skyrim on high along side my GTX 460SC with no problesm. It's durable too, I dropped this thing and bent a bunch of the pins *palms forehead* and had to bend them back. Put it back together and it worked fine. The stock heat sing and fan are good. It gets loud, but that's because it's buzzing at high RPM's and doing its job. A lot of people complain about it but I love it.
Obviously outdated but still going strong after years of use.

Summary: I originally bought this in November of 2011 and it was my introduction to quad core CPU's, The price even then was absolutely amazing for the performance received, and still doesn't skip a beat with new games, although if you plan on doing video encoding and/or rendering I'd steer clear and check out a new Intel CPU as even some of the more modestly priced intel CPU's crush these.
