cant speak for cpu (doa crushed)
9 May 2015
Summary: I'm not 100% sure but I think this cpu was dead on arrival and definatly wasn't new. I think due to shipping in the same box as a heavy power supply this cpu was crushed in shipping. About a third of the cpu fins were bent on arrival.
Great value with second core unlocked, terrible CPU without second core.

Summary: Its an OK CPU. If you have a motherboard that supports core unlocking, then this is a great value. If you don't, this cpu has a hard time streaming youtube videos. If you can't unlock the second core on this, whether the second core is bad or your motherboard doesn't support it, it won't please you.
Summary: Works great, and really affordable. I originally used this processor in a altcoin mining machine, and it worked fine. It has now been switched to my home NAS computer and has been running Freenas for four months without issues.
Summary: Always use the right item for what you need to do. What do you want it for? I wanted a multi-GPU mining rig. This is the right choice for the CPU on my rig. Now for how NOT to use it: 1) If you want a high power CPU this isn't it. 2) If you want a gaming rig then don't bother.

Summary: This CPU was purchased strictly as a troubleshooting device, since I got no support from the tech support people at Gigabyte in determining what was causing my computer failure, I had no choice but to replace parts. So it went in, along with a new power supply and video card.
Summary: This is a great CPU! It's not intended for gaming or anything intensive like that but it's great for video streaming and completing other basic functions. I'd highly recommend this CPU! Installation was extremely easy.
