5 out of 5 eggsExcellant CPU

Pros: This is a very cheap CPU for the performance that you receive. It's excellant for general computing; if you are the type of person who plays games, listens to music, encodes video-music in the background, and run a virtual machine all at the same time then the quads are definitly for you,but if you only do 2-3 of the above than this cpu will fit your need nicely.

Cons: Not as fast as AMD's-Intel's newest silicone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Very stable with CPU temperature generally holding at 36 C with stock HS and fan and cool & quiet. Using GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H AM2+/AM2 780G HDMI Motherboard. Temp ran up to 50C using prime95 stressor. With DDR2-800, I have been able to OC to 24.1GHz by raising cpu frequency to 230 with bios tweaker. Performance/cost ratio very high.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Great AMD CPU

Pros: Very stable with CPU temperature generally holding at 32 C.
What a difference this processor makes when playing 3-D games. CPU is quiet & running cool even with use of the stock heat sink/fan that came with it. Works well with the GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H AM2+/AM2 AMD 780G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard it's being used on.

Cons: Found 3 pins to be slightly bent on the CPU but was able to straighten them out using a pair of tweezers & had no problem mounting it onto the MOBO.

1 out of 5 eggsWaste of Material

Pros: -I didn't waste a FULL Benjamin

-Fast Shipping

Cons: -Came at an unstable clock out of the box, had to underclock it to 1.8GHz, and even then it was unstable

-Used Danger Den water cooling, and it was 94 C on Idle, 136 C on Crysis Very High

Other Thoughts: Don't buy this, it almost burnt a hole in my mobo

1 out of 5 eggsExtremely big disappointment

Pros: I didn't waste that much money.

-Is a nice christmas tree ornament

Cons: - Unstable clock speeds out of the box
- Had to underclock it to 1.6 GHZ, EVEN then it was unstable.

- Then i bought water cooling, was able to overclock to
2.15 GHZ but the cpu went 98C Idle.

Other Thoughts: I thought this cpu could be paired with 2 GTX 295 in SLI .
I was wrong...I recieve a 97% bottleneck.

5 out of 5 eggs3 cores for those unique users out there

Pros: Its 3 cores for less than $80. Runs all my games maxed. It used to take me a week to compile a Gentoo system from scratch with my old 754 socket(3200 2.2GHz). Took me one day of compiling to get it ALL done and I mean compile every single program i use.

Cons: N/A

Other Thoughts: How long must we wait for 6 core on one die?

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing budget CPU

Pros: This is an absolutely amazing CPU, I usually go for Intel in all of my builds, but I decided to take the leap with AMD, and I couldn't have picked a better CPU for the price. Paired with my 9800GTX this puppy can chug out tough games such as GTA IV or Crysis at close to maximum! Thats saying something for a CPU less than 100 dollars + free shipping.

Cons: I cannot find any cons at all.

Other Thoughts: Paired with a good motherboard and GPU, this can be a great lan party machine!

For those interested, this is what my build consisted of:
AMD Phenom 8450 (overclocked to 2.4 GHz)
GIGABYTE GA-MA78GM-US2H (great motherboard highly recommend)
PNY Optima 2GB ( 2 x 1GB)

5 out of 5 eggsDecent!

Pros: Great little CPU for the price! It's been running OC'd at 2.5Ghz on the stock cooler at 100% for over a month straight now, and there have been no issues. It's not the fastest CPU, but it does a good job, and for the price it's great!

Cons: It's not the most overclockable, but that's not a huge problem.
