  • Cons: Not as fast as AMD's-Intel's newest silicone.

Another Great AMD CPU

Lois G., Newegg

  • Pros: Very stable with CPU temperature generally holding at 32 C. What a difference this processor makes when playing 3-D games.

  • Cons: Found 3 pins to be slightly bent on the CPU but was able to straighten them out using a pair of tweezers & had no problem mounting it onto the MOBO.

Extremely big disappointment

John H., Newegg

3 cores for those unique users out there

Anonymous, Newegg
7 May 2009
  • Summary: How long must we wait for 6 core on one die?
  • Pros: Its 3 cores for less than $80. Runs all my games maxed. It used to take me a week to compile a Gentoo system from scratch with my old 754 socket(3200 2.2GHz). Took me one day of compiling to get it ALL done and I mean compile every single program i use.
  • Cons: N/A
