Power and compatibility in a tiny piece of hardware!
3 September 2012
Summary: I bought this product due to the failure of my other amd athlon processor, i wanted the best for my computer chipset (AM2+) this processor is the fastest i have seen, compared to my friends alienware this thing kicks butt.
Summary: Lots of power and Overclocks very easily. I reached 4.3ghz with and voltage mods, just changing the multiplier. Running at stocks speed though for every day use and I must say I'm thinking about replacing the noisy cooler. VERY loud.
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: 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.
