Summary: Product arrived from vendor in great condition! Thanks for that! Little scary ordering used processors but. This was good. Changed a 9100e processor to this newer 9500. Works in the socket, boards fine but expected more performance but didn't get much.
Summary: As an AMD fanboy, I was excited to be one of the first to pick up a Phenom 9500. Paired this with an MSI K9A2 cf-f motherboard, 500W Ultra power supply, 4 gigs of corsair 800 mhz memory, an XFX 8600GT XXX, under Vista 32. After a bois update on the mobo, the Phenom was running stable at 2.2Ghz.
Summary: A while back the motherboard on my system failed and I found myself in the need to rebuild my system and started shopping around for a new processor and motherboard. Decided to get into the Phenom family. Got my system up and running solidly yet I am not too thrilled.
Summary: This is my first build. Had used AMD CPU's before and I'm very pleased with this processor's performance. You must be a hardware freak or be running highly specialized applications to ask for more. Great for media and serious muti-tasking.
Summary: I have used the Phenom 9500 to build a 4GB machine with Windows XP Pro 32 bit. Don't believe the TLB scare stories. I use the machine for video editing, CD ripping and lots more and it runs cool, is super stable and extremely fast (never crashed in 2 months).
Summary: I was wary about buying a used CPU, but this works fine and has given me much better performance as a replacement for my old AMD dual core Athlon. I liked that the seller (Pyromancer) contacted me prior to dispatching the order to confirm that I fully understood what I would be getting.
Summary: Impresionante, Lo hemos comparado con su equivalente en intel... misma grafica... memoria, cache... etc y ha se ha plasmado la velocidad en igualdad de condiciones de una forma clara y contundente. Impresiona, en serio.
