Summary: an excellent cpu for motherboards that can support amd sempron cpus. I ordered one to replace an amd sempron processor that stopped working on my friend's computer and now his computer works again, now a little faster than before.
Summary: It works, what can I say. There was absolutely nothing about it that I didn't like. I decided to buy it because my computer needed another processor because the one that was in it no longer worked.
Summary: This is an excellent budget CPU, and if you're short on cash, get a Sempron 64. You'll hardly notice the difference between this and an Athlon 64. My CPU-Z actually reports mine as an Athlon 64, which is odd. Don't let the 256KB of cache scare you away, you probably won't notice it.
Summary: This has been a really wonderful desktop processor. It runs faster than it looks, and can adequately power a low-range desktop computer. I would recommend this processor to anyone looking to build a new word-processing/ internet surfing PC on a budget.
Summary: This processor is very efficient for many purpose, such as file storage or multimedia center pc. The performance is pretty good too. However I found if I run 24x7, the stock heatsink is loud and does not dissipate heat good enough.
Summary: It's amazing what you can buy for $30 on clearance. This is essentially an Athlon 64 processor with a crippled cache, but at a peanuts price. Amazing speed and flexibility per dollar. Really easy to overclock, even with the stock heatsink (but it can go a lot higher with a good aftermarket model).
Pros: 64 bit support; being closed out at outstanding prices; easy to overclock; low core temperature
Cons: Socket 754 does not support dual channel memory; Fan on stock heatsink too noisy
Summary: A very value-priced processor that's great for daily tasks. With a decent motherboard and some decent memory, it can be overclocked to good speeds without any problems. Despite not support dual-channel memory, it still operates nicely without any slowdowns.
Pros: 64-bit support, low power, overclockability
Cons: 256-k L2 cache, original HSF is noisy, no C'n'Q support, single channel memory interface
Summary: This CPU runs perfectly in my "yet another $200 whitebox". Coupled with a low-priced ECS motherboard, 512M RAM, it is powerful enough for light office editing, internet surfing, music and video playing -- so far so satisfied for everyday jobs.
Pros: Superb performance for the price ($29.99 + shipping at Fry's Outpost); Low voltage and frequency keep the system temprature low
Cons: Noisy stock fan; 256k L2 cache is at most for a decent office computer
Summary: This chip is awesome. It was quite fast at stock speed, but once i overclocked it, it became a beast. With the stock voltage of 1.4v, i got this baby from 1.6 ghz to 2.3ghz. I probably could push it further, but having two sticks of ram limits my computer.
