This old extreme processor still rocks
2 March 2014
Summary: I had an old intel bx 975 board so I decided to use this in a htpc server. I could not be happier. While the fan is loud under load the PC is located in my basement so this is not a problem. It might not be the latest and greatest but it does the job and more.
This upgrade improved my computers performance as desired.

Summary: Nice boost from the 1,86 GHz Core2 Duo that it replaced. So far I haven't upgraded the CPU fan or the DDR2667 memory though I would like to. Windows experience scores went from 4.9 to 5.9 overall with processor going from 4.9 to 6.3.
Summary: This processor is great, at this point it is becoming slightly outdated as it does not have a quad core and it does not have a 1333mhz FSB, but it still screams. I have installed this in a few clients machines and they love it, it is fast as all get out.
Summary: If you're a serious overclocker, you can definitely buy one of their cheaper ones and push it to this speed. But this one has an unlocked multiplier, and can be overclocked to still greater highs.
Pros: Tremendous speed gain, even without overclocking
Summary: Just built a new system with lots of horsepower for handling video applications and 3D software in a Windows Vista 64-bit environment. The speed of this processor is pretty much off the charts for most freeware speed evaluation software, but looking around the net for info on this processor and my motherboard showed it could even (and very slightly) out perform an Intel motherboard.
Pros: Smokin in the speed department. Runs cooler than I expected in my system. Operates in 64-bit environment (Vista 64-bit)
Summary: I AM RUNNING THIS PROCESSOR WITH (2)SAS 15K HARD DRIVES RAID O, 256 VIDEO CARD (FX 3450) 2GB OF RAM. THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE ROCKET. I MUST ADMIT I AM A SPEED FREAK. THIS IS A WORLD AWAY FROM THE 2.66 CONROE PROCESSOR EVEN THOUGHT IT WOULD NOT SEEM SO. I AM GOING TO BUILD ANOTHER SYSTEM LIKE THIS FOR MY SISTER.
