The processor delivers what is promised. Super value price!
27 February 2012
Summary: The processor delivers what is promised in the description. Speedup to the original processor (AMD Sempron 2600) is noticeably felt. The screen layout is much more fluid and arithmetic operations are performed faster. So far I have not had any problems and this processor can especially because of the low price only recommend. I apologize for my "German" English since my school days still is already back a little longer time. Best regards W.B.
Summary: Retail packaging of processors include the processor, heat sink and a high quality fan. If you buy OEM packaged processors, you get the processor only, and usually the packing is not protective enough. The power cord on the fan is more than adequate in length.
Pros: Excellent Processor for the price. Retail packaging as opposed to OEM is by far the better choice.
Cons: The BIOS on my motherboard does not identify the model of the processor during Power On Self Test (POST).
Summary: This was just what I needed for a customer that had a broken pc. I had a used motherboard and with such a savings by purchasing this processor, I passed on better savings to my very pleased customer!
Summary: I went from a PIII and difference is huge. Windows XP installed a lot quicker, apps loaded faster and multitasking is now possible. I had difficulty getting the two latches from the heatsink onto the motherboard and I couldn't get the camhandle into the closed position but the latches still prevent it from going anywhere (just a noob mistake). The heatsink temperature never gets above 32C (BIOS reports an incorrect temperature).
