Summary: The CPU is great, had no problems with the install and waiting to overclock to see how high i can get it to, the speed on this processor is great,Excellent overclocker, great price, added L2 cache helpful for most applications. Runs very cool with decent cooler. Worth the price.
Summary: It does exactly what I wanted it for. I can play most games and run applications flawlessly without any downtime. It performs well especially for the price and though it's older, it is still by no means outdated technology.
Pros: cheap. fast. extremely easy to install for newbies
Cons: probably will not keep up with newer programs and games in the future
Summary: I used this chip to build my own pc with existing parts. Worked flawlessly with my Chaintech SK8T800 motherboard. Have not had any issues with it. Have read that this cpu is easily overclockable to 2.2GHz and more, making it comparable to Athlon 64 3500+. May try that next.
Pros: Easy install; Overclockable; Value for the money
Excerpt: I have recently up graded from an old Pentium 4 (@1.4ghz) And I will never turn back, The Pentium 4 I was using is slow, old and gets very hot under stress. Since I bought the Sempron, my computer core temperature has not reached over 50 degrees Celsius. This is good because it keeps it good and stable.
Pros: Good value for money, Can take a lot of stress, doesn't warm us as much as other processors
