5 out of 5 eggsIf you blink you miss it.

Pros: Just to own it is pro enough.

Cons: was sent a Athlon 7850 be. Rma'd and was sent the correct cpu in a week.

Other Thoughts: Best am2+ cpu there is, Unlocked to Phenom II X4 15 and overclocked by more than 800mgz from stock and does not top over 53c. Also on a side note, you can't go wrong with Newegg. No Matter what they make it right with there customers.

5 out of 5 eggsAM2+ Zoom Monster

Pros: Got it on slae for $75. Unlocked Multi/6Mb Cache.
Unlock to Phenom II X4 15( got lucky)
Overclocks very well( add 800mgz+ with the right cooling). It's AMD Dragon Platform= Fast&Reliable

Cons: Not A One.

Other Thoughts: I will say that if you want to build a realy good budget pc
that will fufill your every thought( on am2+ platform) than just get this cpu with a ASUS M4A785-m mobo and 4gb of Mushkin ddr2 8OOmgz ram( overclocks nice also) and a mid/high end graphics card( XFX ATI chipset) . Add in a Kingston v+100 ssd with 1tb F3 HDD and you will not go wrong.

5 out of 5 eggsphenom II x3 715

Pros: 4 cores stable @ 2.6 ghz Underclocked
3 cores stable@ 3.2 ghz

Cons: free would be better

Other Thoughts: It might do better with a different board. M4a78-e & 8 Gb DDR2 1066 ram, HD5770, Scythe heat pipe cooler. Blue screens @3.3 cpu temp 115F(46C), no fan. I believe the (DDR2)ram is the problem. Every thing from newegg.

3 out of 5 eggsMisleading

Pros: shipping

Cons: When I first bought this CPU. I could of swore it advertised as a AM3 socket. but when the order description showed up and everything, It was an AM2+ socket. I have no proof that newegg advertised wrong, but I think its partly my fault and neweggs. I have no way of checking unless I pay money to see if its even good. Then I have the hastle of returning and stocking fees.

Other Thoughts: Wish so bad I could of used it. Instead I was in a pinch and had to buy locally. bought an athlon 640 X4 for over twice the price. What a bummer.

5 out of 5 eggsBrilliant

Pros: Unlocked multiplier for dead-easy overclocking. OCed to 3.2 GHz on stock fan with no need to change any other settings. Runs cool for the amount of performance it delivers.

Cons: Rapidly disappearing from the market. Get yours now.

Other Thoughts: If you're not sure if your motherboard can support this, just look for the Phenom II 720 in the manufacturer's compatibility list. This CPU is the exact same item as the 720, and they even report the same CPU ID code. (The 715 is just an OEM version of the 720.)

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Speed. Speed. Speed. Okay, so you're taking a little gamble with this badboy but even if you're 4th core isnt unlockable, you'll still be able to oc this quite easily with the ASUS board...

Price.

Cons: Chance of getting a bad CPU... so RMA it.. :/

Other Thoughts: Anyone leaving less than 5 eggs is a nub.

Take it from a gamer, BFBC2 runs like a champ on my system and its only 3-cores. Paired with a ECA 460Gtx, Antec PSU, and Rosewill RCXZ-1 - I built a perfect budget gaming rig... havent had any problems yet. I hope ECA is one of those brands that ends up mirroring ASUS and AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsGot to write a review

Pros: Fast and efficient.

Unlocked and stable all the way to 3.3 GHZ but not needed, so went back to Tri-core.

Cons: Price went up by $15.

Other Thoughts: As a Tri-core and at balanced power setting under Win7 it idles at 31 Watts. Overclocked to 3 GHz (lower the multiplier one notch and raising the FSB till it hits 3 GHz). RAM gets overclocked at same time from 1066 to 1130.

Can overclock higher but would not be as power efficient.

Setup with:

1. Gigabyte MA78LM-S2H
2. HyperK RAM 4Gb 1066 - WEI: 7.4
3. This CPU - WEI:7.3
4. Cooler Master Elite 430
5. Xigmatex S1283 (Core idles at 20C and 29C)
6. Cooler Master PSU 460 Watts

5 out of 5 eggsBest CPU Out There

Pros: 1.AMD
2. Black Edition Phenom II
3. unlcoked multi which i believe goes all the way to 31 unlike locked CPU's which have a max of 15.
4. unlockd the fourth core and running stable at the stock 2.8ghz
5.FAST,FAST,FAST!! compared to my old Athlon 64 X2 this thing absolutely blows it away.. have yet to max it out yet. played three 1080p movies at once and was surfing the web using about 70% of the whole CPU.
6. converting movies dosnt effect it abit. converting a high def movie using oxleon media converter and only using 50% of the proc and still ran at light speed

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Extremely Extremely happy with this Processor and thankyou newegg.
