Summary: The "blazing speed" aspect of this processor comes at a price; the CPU cooler fan is loud and quite annoying to me. My hearing is not all that good either, which makes me wonder how normal people can put up with it.
Summary: The AMD 975 CPU is absolutely a winner. The system with a Asus M5A88-EVO motherboard with 8 GB RAM and a ATI HD6770 are far superior to my old system. Stuck with the system fan that is good and sturdy. Haven't worked to OC yet. Still enjoy the system as is. A definite buy.
Summary: Lousy installation instructions. When I finally did get it in; It was over-heating. Anywhere from 56c to 62c ! Took it back out & cleaned it & put new thermal paste on it - Put It Back In. Crashed!! No Out-put, Nada. $160.00 down the drain!!!
Summary: My PC was an ASUSm3a78PRO w/ AMD Athlon x2 6000+ (3.1 ghz brisbane) with 4 GB DDR2 800 and a Nvidia 9800 GTX+ (1GB). I could run most games decent enough on windows XP 32 bit, but it struggled with ARMA2, GTA4 and some other high-spec games.
Summary: The 975 is the best processor I have ever had.I have run intel and they are good but you get much more for your money with AMD.I have run this cpu for around 90 days now and I love it.My games run smoother and updates take far less time with the 975.I had the 955 and a 925 running in my 2 gaming...
Summary: I play Aion, WoW and Rift. I'm upgrading from the AMD Athlon II X4 620 Propus. Which is a 2.6ghz processor. My Video Card is a 5770. This thing blows it out of the water. Keeps my frames steady in WoW especially. Before in WoW I could play on Ultra but shadows had to be off.
Summary: El microprocesador amd phenom 2 x4 975 es un micro de la gama alta de los phenom, el más potente de la gama. Perfecto para sacar partido a los juegos de última generación y software tipo photoshop o after effects por poner algún ejemplo.
Summary: Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist ok, aber wie bei der gesamten Phenom II X4 Reihe gilt auch hier: Der boxed Kühler ist absolut ungeeignet für diese CPU. Mit Prime95 kommt man schnell über 65°C (mit 125 W TDP sehr viel Abwärme), was jenseits der Garantie-Temperatur-Grenze ist.
