Reviews and Problems with AMD Sempron 140 (SDX140HBGQBOX)
Showing 1-10 of 80
Unbeatable value if it unlocks
10 August 2013
Summary: I bought it as a cheap temporary processor while waiting for a deal on a fx, but this cpu has quite a bit of power. Mine unlocked to a Athlon II with no difficulty and it's good enough that I can wait for a spectacular deal on something better.
AMD Sempron 140 CPU. A small little device that does the basics well enough for sure.

Summary: I bought the AMD Sempron 140 CPU used off a reseller on Amazon for around 30 bucks. It was good investment for my modest needs. This CPU is not a powerhouse by any means and it is now considered dated technology by many years. However, this CPU makes a great brain center for someone who is either making a basic-entry desktop for themselves or perhaps for a home server.
Summary: I ordered this "Used" and was apprehensive. It came with a fan and heatsink, while the heat sink did not look like it was made for the CPU, I am trusting it. So far so good. Time will tell, but I have no reason just yet to think there will be any problems. Again - so far, so good after 2 days of intermittent testing. I overclocked it from 2.7Ghz to 3.1GHz with no problems.
Summary: The Sempron 140 has been running in three computers I have built for various family members. Two use it for everyday surf and email tasks, which is more than enough for the job. One uses is to do some limited gaming, which I'll get into. The 140 seems to be discontinued, and the 145 seems to be the base line now (going from 2.7->2.8GHz, as well as a few architectural changes), so this review probably isn't worth much anymore, but may as well get on with it.
amazing low priced budget CPU cant beat the price per prefomance

Summary: This is a great little processor for a budget build. the one I got unlocked to a dual core 82W regor 4400 running ddr3 1600 ram 8GB got this for a friend to upgrade his machine from an old single core 939 board I was very suprized that a sempron would preform this well. and if you want a nice little HTPC that is quiet it runs great as a single core at 45W TDP.
Flexible, budget performer. Recommended for basic uses.

Summary: I have owned two of these processors. The first I put into a machine I sold to a family that needed a reliable home computer for basic tasks. The higher clock and ddr3 and ddr2 support is nice as well as the low power consumption. Combined with 2 gigs of ram they are pleased with the system. The second is sitting in my living room in a HTPC that, compined with the core unlocking feature of my gigabyte motherboard allowed me to unlock it to a dual core.
