Summary: One of the fastest CPU yet to come since its introduction. AMD has always been the innovator for the best technology. Upgrading from a 2X to the 4X was as easy as ever. No hiccups, just a clean and easy installation. I was not surprised, though, that it runs a little hotter than its predecessor but it was easy to upgrade to a better cooling system that made it fly. I have since recommnded it as an upgrade to a few of my friends and they too think it is marvelous.
Summary: This was bought because I was getting bsod every time I stressed out my computer. This is a good processor. AMD makes one of the best processors out there . I prefer them over intel because they are just as good if not better and cost half the price.
Summary: Inconsistent voltage regulation across this entire print of chips. These things are a hit and miss just to get them to operate correctly. If utilizing a processor for it's processing capabilities, a buyer will want to stay away from the first generation Phenoms. AMD is a quality company, and they were quick to fix their mistakes, but that doesn't mean these sub-par chips aren't in circulation.
