Dam good CPU

Russell L., Newegg
24 August 2014
  • Summary: I use WorldComunityGrid a cluster computing program that helps with curing cancer, AIDS research, malaria and many other helpful things. The ability for your rig to run 6 process at over 3.5GHz and knock them out in a timely fashion is AMAZING.
  • Pros: Runs nice and fast, can easily overclock to a stable 3.7GHz turbo.
  • Cons: Runs HOT (typical AMD...)

Works Well

  • Summary: decent, doesn't do anything incredibly well and doesn't do anything below average. 3 years of life and no problems.
  • Pros: it works well and has worked well for 3 years.
  • Cons: I guess the only con is that it isn't SPECTACULAR but it was priced very well and does gaming just fine.

Nice

  • Summary: This is an awesome hid-highend cpu at a great price. I haven't had any problems OCing to 3.8GHZ, would try for 4 if I had a better cooler. I don't know how it stacks up against intel, and if I wasn't already invested in an AMD motherboard I probably would have switched over.
  • Pros: Fast, stable over clocking, seems pretty solid, price
  • Cons: None that I can think of

great cpu

rick s., Newegg
25 December 2011
  • Summary: Good CPU
  • Pros: Thanks to newegg my first cpu was overheating regardless of trying several coolers/heatsinks. I finally RMA and the replacement has not had this issue. This cpu is the best I've ever had and so far has handled the kitchen sink along with everything else I've thrown at it. Hopefull this 1099T will...
  • Cons: knock on wood, none with the replacement

Great CPU, but get an aftermarket fan/heatsink

Mark Muehlbauer, Amazon

  • Summary: Looking at this from a dollar spent per unit of power, this CPU is about the best value you can get (at the time of this writing). Slightly outperforms my i7 920. Paired this with 4 GB CORSAIR XMS3 DHX and the Gigabyte Socket AM3/AMD 890GX motherboard.

Runs cool and good..

Jeffrey, Amazon

  • Summary: 1090T as the current flagship for AMD consumer CPU, is a mid-range CPU Processor that has the bang for the buck. Highly recommended for gamers who wants that performance, but low on budget. High marks with the proper hardware. Easy OC, and runs cooler then any other X6 processor.

Good performance, less than expected though

Marcos, Amazon
30 January 2013
  • Summary: I switched to 6 core Phenom 1090T from 2 core Phenom 550. I was hoping for bigger performance boost in photo editing. There was a boost, but not as big as benchmarks would suggest. What more, the CPU makes a high-pitched squeaking sound under heavy load. Can't eliminate that.
