Summary: It's working just fine. The refurbished CPU fan had a fin outside the plastic housing (when it was cleaned) but it was easy to take the cover off and put it back on properly. The fan then looked brand new. It was a stock fan and looked exactly like my old one (I ordered this CPU to replace an exact replica 965). I went ahead and used the fan they provided as my old one was pretty dusty. So glad that this was available, as I couldn't find a new 965 anywhere.
Summary: It is a nice processor for gaming, there more expensive ones out there however this is a great buy. Warning be careful not all AM3 boards support this chip. I have found that there motherboards that will only support up to 90v and this processor requires 125v.
Summary: yup, that's right, uh huh I said it.. all with just one word.. geeky.. this works GREAT! it was a little dirty when I go it but that was to help protect the CPU. I used some good Arctic Clean Thermal Material Cleaner & Surface Purifier to clean it off then went on and gave it some of the Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound now my computer works better..

Summary: Blazing Speeds and "Horsepower" to spare.... This CPU has been a total beast and proven to be reliable and fast for the generation! Mainly bought due to price and reliability difference between AMD and Intel... For the low price you would think that you would not get much from this processor, but if your looking to build a mid to hi range gaming build this is the processor to do so. With it's high clock rate and 4 cores you can easily build a cheap rig.
Excellent CPU for gaming and workstation on a budget

Summary: Excellent CPU for gaming and workstation on a budget. Easy over-clocking with the right motherboard. I am using a Gigabyte GA 770T UD3P, MOSSFETT cooler, and a closed loop H50 Cooler. Running it stable at 4.025 GHz on 1.47V, 2.7GHz North Bridge, and ram (XMS3) running at DDR3-1532 on 6-7-6-20 timings. 56C at full load. Chews up Crysis and Solid Works for a $100.00, is value. It's not as good as a Lynnfield i7 but it is half the price and very close.
