5 out of 5 eggs3 Years Strong

Pros: 5.4Ghz of Processing Power
Pretty darn dependable
3 Years of operation and still going strong as my main computer's CPU

Cons: If there is one I have yet to find it.

Other Thoughts: I do suppose the stock Heat Sink isn't that great but I found me a Thermaltake heat sink not too long after the build and fitted it, I did mess up the attachment and the CPU got up to 180F, didn't seem to cause any damage, I fixed it and it rarely runs over 150F on full load.

I admit it's probably not nor ever was the greatest CPU on the market but it can still handle some current games paired with my GeForce 210.

5 out of 5 eggsShocked

Pros: I'm going to share a little story with you all.

I've had this processor for over 2 years and it's served me well and has ran fantastically the entire time no hiccups.

Then came the day about a week ago when my new processor arrived that I was going to upgrade my machine with; a regor 260. When I popped the heatsink off, the processor came out with it(the thermal paste must've been glued HARD to it) Yes, it literally ripped out of the socket. I was very nervous at the point, but I was thinking "hey, im not gonna need this anymore anyway" Turns out, from my lack of research, the 260 wasn't compatible with my system. At this point, I turn back to my 5200 and I try to install it. No go. I have a look at it, and a lot of the pins are bent.

Long story short, I take a sewing needle, and pry at least 20 or more pins back into their correct position. I even broke off 3 pins doing this. As a shot in the dark, I plugged in it. It worked flawlessly, and here I am still using it. Speechl

Cons: After my experience I really can't say anything negative about this processor.

Other Thoughts: I just want to give my thanks to AMD for making a product that not only works great, but letting it have the ability to be fixed if you happen to break it. Now I don't have to go out of my way looking for one of these 5000+ processors, which seem near extinct.

5 out of 5 eggsPwnsauce

Pros: I remember buying this chip a little over a year ago, and at the time I was shocked stupid at how fast it was when coupled with a budget-grade Jetway board and 2GB of Kingston DDR2 800; it still impresses me. I've run older games (like Ranbow 6 3 and the like lol) on that same system and I've never had a problem with reliability. I tried running every program on both my Windows 7 install and Ubuntu 10.10 partition and even then I wasn't able to get the CPU up to 100%. That is... Until I started messing with multimedia encoding, decoding and the like... Scince then I've decided that I'll attempt a AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto 3.2GHz and ASUS motherboard combo, and after unlocking the other two cores match it against my current system. Long and short? For everything except multimedia encoding and the newest fastest games, this CPU and a decent motherboard will get you very far, it has me. :D

Cons: It's only a 65W processor... I had to go and actually buy a heater instead of sticking my feet on the computer case this winter... ;]

Other Thoughts: The fact that this build was a budget project aside, I've overclocked this chip to 3.0Ghz stable on stock cooling. Even with my cheap Jetway board and stock heatsink I've clocked it up to 3.2Ghz (500Mhz per core OC, 1Ghz total) without too much of a problem. At 3.0Ghz the chip maxes out at about 63C and idles at 23C after running Prime95 for about 2 hours. It's my baby. :]

Pros: Im sure that this cpu would have been even better if i didnt leave it overclocked for so long. although it lasted over a year at 3.2Ghz which suprized the hell out of me

Cons: it got extreamly glithie after more then a year of hard use at 3.2Ghz. im really proud of AMD on this one

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Extremely efficient for the price. A clear example of why dual cores can still be used for great performance even with modern gaming. I have a 5200+, I'm not sure what the difference is, but mine has 2.71 GHz, so mine is .01 GHz faster then every other 2.7 dual core. Now that's gangsta.

Cons: It ain't a quad core, but really, there's not TOO big of a difference for the most part. It works fine, only real reason you'd want a quad core over this is if you're making a multimedia device, work stations, and high end gaming rigs (if you're going to be playing on multiple monitors...might want to think about that quad core instead). Other than that, this works great for school, casual gaming (shouldn't have any problem for games like MW2, Source Engine games, Far Cry 2, and WoW. Assuming you also have a decent graphics card of course), and simple daily usage. Perfect mid-end processor.

Other Thoughts: It's AMD, thus, far cheaper then intel counterparts. I haven't tried overclocking it, but there isn't too much of a need to. If you're looking for better performance in gaming, you should be concentrating on your graphics card, as higher performance in your CPU is barely noticeable in gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsworks great....

Pros: I've had this in a custom build that i ordered over a year and a half ago. has ran great and has never given me any grief. Now, i've chaged out most of the rig (except the RAM and CPU), and its still running great. I've played alot of games with this cpu, from Doom3 to LOKI, to the new Wolfenstein and Assassins creed.......I'd buy another but i'm upgrading to the 955BE C3 so this ones going in our media tower.

Cons: i didn't get the sticker.........

Other Thoughts: This is sitting in a Asus M3N-HT HDMI/Deluxe 780a tri-sli mobo with 2 2gb sticks of OCZ Fatal1ty DDR2 800's, 2 evga 9800GTX+'s in physX set up, with a coolermaster V8 heatsink (Overkill for this cpu, it NEVER got hot with the stock heatsink, its for the 955 later). great cpu for moderate to low gaming IF you relieve the cpu of the physX calculations.....at least for my set up.

5 out of 5 eggsGood upgrade

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, works great out of the box. Easy installation.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Got this as an upgrade to a Sempron processor that came with the store bought machine. If you have an aging AM2 only system and don't have dual-core capability this is a good route to go. Now have Win7 and 4GB of RAM to match. Not an overclocker, but definitely cut encoding and burning DVD time out of the box.
