5 out of 5 eggsAMD Athlon 64 X2 5600+ Brisbane

Pros: Fast for a mid level dual core. Replaced an Athlon 64 4000+ Orleans 2.6GHz that replaced a damaged Athlon 64 X2 4000+ Brisbane 2.1GHz that came stock with my computer in 2007. I've had it for 6 months and I've installed Windows Vista, Windows 7, Linux Ubuntu (different versions of each) multiple times, played very labor intensive games such as GTA IV, Crysis, World of Warcraft and ect. Have used several programs that are also labor intensive such as various editing programs. Has lasted me 6 months under extreme stress under decent temps without any problems at all.

Cons: Can't be overclocked on My ESC Nettle2 motherboard =[ I could have bought an Athlon II X2 265 Regor 3.3GHz or even an Athlon II X3 450 Rana 3.2GHz for the same money now, if I had a better motherboard (not a con for the CPU itself, just my other hardware) Doesn't seem to handle multitasking very well, but then again I run heavy programs...

Other Thoughts: Should have upgraded to a better motherboard first. Has a rating of 5.4 out of 7.9 on Windows performance idex. For what this CPU is, it's a great CPU for the average user.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Upgrade for Dell DIMENSION E521

Pros: I picked this up from newegg to replace my daughter's cpu in her Dell DIMENSION E521. Once I was able to get around the stronghold casing that dell had installed in the case, it was quite easy to replace the cpu. It literally fell into place, which was nice. The windows Exp score went up a few tenths. It is handling multiple programs a lot better than the 2.o GHZ it replaced. I am satisfied and reccomend this cpu to anyone that is upgrading the same product.

Cons: I don't have any cons. The price was reasonable and the assembly was painless.

Other Thoughts: I don't like the way Dell hides its cpu heatsinks and fans. The fan was caked with dust and the only true way to clean it is to remove the heatsink. Otherwise, you cannot even see clearly enough to see any of the dust build up.

4 out of 5 eggsFast & Cheap Dell E521 upgrade

Pros: Fast and cheap upgrade from a single core Athlon 64 5600+ on a Dell E521. CPU came in a nice package and fast shipping. It would have gotten a higher score if it wasnt for the bend pin

Cons: I was trying to put it on the socket for 20 minutes and it would not go in. I carefully compare the processors and discover one of the pins was bend. With a tweezer, I carefully slowly straighten it and it work.

5 out of 5 eggsNew life for an aging system

Pros: Brought this cpu to replace the stock Athlon 64 3800+ single core processor in my bro's Compaq. Works like a charm. Windows experience rating went from 4.3 to 6.0. Niceeee. System multi-tasking is greatly improved(of course). Gaming is much smoother now. Aion average FPS went from mid-high 30s on medium-ish settings to mid 70s with high settings 2xAA and Bloom turned on. Didnt have any problems with packaging like others. Came secure in a plastic case with foam padding wrapped in bubble wrap wrapped in packing paper. Thx. Shipping was fairly fast considering i ordered it late(very late) Friday night. Got it the following wed very early. Temps are ok. Idle high 30s-low 40s. Load high 50s-low 60s on stock 3800+ non-x2 cooler. Plan to change it out with something better to get temps done a bit more. Currently OC'd to 3.2 stable on stock cooler but have pushed it to 3.4 but temps were to high for my liking. Saw it hit 72c. Max temp is listed at 70c. Great buy thx newegg.

Cons: None for the processor itself. If you are like me and are using a HP/Compaq PC with the Asus A8M2N-LA (Naos) motherboard make sure update your bios to 3.10. Google it. Or else youll get nothing but beeps upon start-up. Knew this going in but forgot to do update first. LOL

Other Thoughts: System specs
Debranded Compaq
AMD Athlon X2 5600+ (Brisbane)(OC to 3.2ghz on stock 3800+ non-x2 cooler)

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I am very happy with this processor. I am now able to run Starcraft2. Yay!

Cons: When I opened the packaging, I noticed that the processor was out of the plastic package and laying there on the bottom of the cardboard. One of the pins was bent but I was able to bent it back into place. It runs fine, but it was unfortunate that it came that way.

5 out of 5 eggsgrat cpu upgrade

Pros: Upgraded a dell c521 4000+ 2.1 to 5600+ 2.9
Also removed two of four 512mb pc5300 and installed a dual channel 2gb kingston pc6400 kit to go from to 2gb to 3gb ram. Huge difference, I feel like I got a new PC for $120.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: First time cpu upgrade. Easy to install. Took only a few minutes and a phillips screwdriver. If you buy a new fan / heatsink and own a dell slimline, pay attention to the fan orientation before ordering as they are not all the same.
