Summary: I Had this processor in my machine for about 1 year, recently switched to a 1100t phenom II. The difference in processing power is minimal. Overclocked this processor is the fastest of all Phenom II CPU's.
Summary: This thing is great for a building a budget CPU. Speed is blazing fast The stock heatsink that comes with it is pretty loud, I switched over to a zalman 9700 and was able to get a stable overclock of 4.2ghz. I'd definitely recommend AMD products.
Summary: ordered this along with the arctic silver 5 compound, didnt know this would come with its own heatsink, you must use THAT heatsink it comes with for 3 years for the warranty, alot better then stock heatsinks, im happy with this buy, very fast, scores 7.4 on windows index not overclocked.
Summary: new build with a 990 chipset, what can i say, amd rules. best price to performance cpu, and it overclocks to 4.2 gigs with an aftermarket cooler. hey the only cooler arctic cooling 90mm fan......so quiet.
Summary: Since install about 7 months ago...What needs to be said about AMD....you can't do any cooking with it like some other processors! The speed is as reported and I don't need to overclock it does the work just fine!!!!
