Summary: This was what I was looking for, a processor with 6 cores for a great gaming. works great, and is the fastest cpu I have ever got. All programs runs in seconds instead of minutes. And best of all it arrived 2 days early for a build that was waiting on it. And im using it to type in this review.
Summary: This is a very fast processor, and is perfect for overclocking! With the stock heatsink, I had the processor clocked at 4ghz easily and it was stable. Very good buy. As efficient (in my opinion) as the newer AMD FX 8000 series.
Summary: It has more horsepower than the Q6600 that I upgraded from. It's now older technology (also cheaper), but is easily overclocked, stable, runs pretty cool, and able to handle everything I throw at it. I've had a number of AMD processors and I expect this to last a few years until I want to upgrade again and put this in my secondary computer. Win 7 Windows Experience is 7.5, 7.6 with an overclock to 3.7 GHz.
