5 out of 5 eggsLove It!

Pros: I got this because at under $90 it was the best bang for the buck... I formerlly had a Dual Core Black Edition and had some mother board issues so I said screw it, the MB, RAM and Chip need to be upgraded. It was WELL worth it

I have had a Swiftech Apogee, hooked to a dual 120mm fan radiator and MCP655 pump for a while now just to keep my computer QUIET... so I figured WTH I will see where this puppy goes.

This is the reason I love it! 272 x 14 = 3.8ghz @ 1.55V just because I can.... and it runs at 27°C-32°C (Idle to Prime95)

Honestly I don't know if it couldn't go farther! I wouldn't be suprised with the RAM timings pulled back the HT multi set at x7 and some more Vcore I couldn't get 4.0ghz.

This on a computer I use for my work to run long calculations AND as a TV/entertainment center at night thru my 46" LED.

Cons: When I first got this.... plugged it in and with the ASUS board it wouldn't dial back the timings on the Crucial RAM (8GB) when I pulled the multiplier back to get over 3.2ghz... so BSOD. I was bummed because people on air get this Chip to 3.5ghz on here and overclocking sites. But it was very fast even then....

So the other night I was thinking maybe that's the issue, so I fixed the timings and changed the mulitplier and started the slow reboot bumping process of 4mhz on the FSB a time... 3.4, 3.5, 3.6, 3.7 and now 3.8ghz. Cons? What Cons?

Oh yeah they need to make more of these!

Other Thoughts: I've had a few chips over the years I love, Opteron 146 was a great machine we used even up to 07/11 when it got flooded, the LE-1620 I got for $38 and did 3.2ghz was awesome as well... but 4 cores and a 1ghz OC? I haven't seen that kind of gain in a decade, and to do it on a 4 core chip?

This chip is awesome, and yes I made a Pineapple Express reference in here as well!

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it...

Pros: While it worked, it was great. Significantly cheaper than other chips.

Cons: I bought this chip a little over a year ago and at first it was awesome. I wasn't able to overclock it to a stable setting above 3.0Ghz....even with liquid cooling, which is a weak showing if you ask me. However, the price I got it for was about $120, which was a steal. Now, a year later, it's throwing errors constantly and my computer is blue screening and random restarting to the point of my computer being nonfunctional. Long story short, I've identified it's the CPU and am in the RMA process, which I will give it to AMD they are quite helpful.

Just get one of the customer choice award winning black denebs, not this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT DEAL

Pros: - Chews through anything I throw at it
- I monitor with core temp and it never overheats running on stock cooling
-can be overclocked
- excellent deal for quad core

Cons: NONE

4 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: Pretty decent processor. Worked out of the box, heat sink is sufficient.

Cons: Should have gone with the 955 for a few dollars more to be able to use all the features on my motherboard.

Other Thoughts: All in all, decent chip for the price, but the 955 is the better bang for your buck I think.

5 out of 5 eggsAnother Solid AMD processor

Pros: You probably can't find a much better chip for the price. These are way solid and AMD has not let me down yet. It's on par with some of the i7 chips and costs MUCH less.

Cons: The stock cooler is poor quality, but it gets the job done. I get aftermarket coolers no matter what cpu i buy anyway.

Other Thoughts: This is a good processor for a mid range build.

I would recommend it.

If you are looking for a budget build, go with a phenom II x2. The quad core doesn't make as big of a difference as dual core does, unless you do more than one cpu intensive thing at once.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor for the price!

Pros: I was trying to buy a higher end processor for my new gaming rig but I found a deal that was to good to pass up which included this processor.

Admittedly 2.8 GHZ is a bit low for high performance programs/gaming, so I had planned all along to overclock this processor. I was hoping to be able to pull off 3.2-3.4GHZ and figured that would easily be enough for my needs. But to tell you the truth @ 2.8 GHZ this processor was already fast enough to run everything just not to the maximum potential.

So I ended up getting the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus to cool the cpu. I had it overclocked to 3.36 GHZ no problem for awhile. But then I decided to push it to the limit. And I found the highest I can get it stable without pushing the volts over 1.45v (didn't even bother trying higher) was 3.64GHZ.

So now I have this processor running at 3.64GHZ on 1.42v completely stable. My temperature only gets up to 47 degrees Celsius max at 100% load and idles under 30.

Cons: Stock heat sink and fan is terrible. I was getting up to 56 degrees Celsius very quickly while stress testing. Admittedly this could be due to the installers not doing a good job. But even with proper installation I would not recommend overclocking until you upgrade the cpu cooler.

Other Thoughts: I was able to overclock this cheap processor up to the levels of the much more expensive AMD Phenom II x4 975.

Overclocks are not guaranteed of course but even if you cant get to 3.64 GHZ this is a great value.

5 out of 5 eggsLong past due upgrade

Pros: Price per core, overall performance, warranty with the Retail version.

Cons: Industry standard rubish used for stock HSF assemblies.

Other Thoughts: Folding 24x7 with the -smp client and I see no noticeable impact when simultaneously actually using the box for the server functionality it was built for.

It has plenty of processing power, far more than I really need right now for a headless CLI only server box. Huge boost over the ancient Athlon64 3500+ it replaces; though I'm sure the new motherboard and going from 4x512Mb DDR to 2x2Gb DDR3 memory sticks do their fair share to help that feeling.
