Great value with second core unlocked, terrible CPU without second core.

Al, Amazon
19 February 2015
  • 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. On the bright side, it is a 64-bit chip clocked at 2.8GHz, so if you need to do basic word processing its good.

Works great, and really affordable

Mike, Amazon

  • 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.

The right item for the job

Faramarz Rabii, Amazon
24 October 2014
  • 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. 3) If you want a mining rig where the ASIC does the job then get a Raspberry Pi. You got to use the right tool for any job. I wanted to build a GPU mining rig and the most basic CPU is just fine.

capn gary, Amazon

  • 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. The failure was (naturally) the motherboard itself. So this cpu did what I needed it to do for the smallest amount of money possible.

Awesome little CPU!

Nero, Amazon
10 August 2014
  • 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 (I was scared I'd bend the pins but I didn't) For some reason the heatsink that came with this CPU was making too much noise so I just used my old heatsink and applied new thermal paste. Enjoy!

AMD Sempron 145 - a great value CPU

The Data Master, Amazon
4 July 2014
  • Summary: I purchased this processor as part of a system rebuild of my aging (15 year old) PC that was still running Windows XP (and 98 - don't laugh). I have since installed Windows 8.1 evaluation (Enterprise edition) which is free for 90 days but cannot be upgraded to a permanent license, mainly to see if I would run into any problems, if it would fail to recognize legacy hardware, and most importantly, if I would dislike the new operating system.
