5 out of 5 eggs2 Years Later ... Still Runs Great, Like a Rock

Pros: Truly, this is a great budget CPU. I am not an overclocker but I was looking for an excellent value for the family PC. A PC for school work, internet browsing and light-duty gaming. This CPU really fit the bill. It has worked perfectly for over 2 years. The low thermal output is a huge plus and a big weight off my mind.

Cons: I am saddened that it has been discontinued.

5 out of 5 eggsGoing strong after a year

Pros: Low temp
Low power consumption
Fantastic price
Great speed

Cons: Should have ordered sooner

Other Thoughts: this processor is the perfect for my build. I wanted a a Dual-Core processor that used as little power as possible because i need to have it running for 24 hours- 6 days out of the week. I have multiple screens and programs that. in the past, can slow a computer down. Luckily I found this gem.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little CPU

Pros: Dropped this cpu on a basic Asrock board. Runs flawlessly. OC'd from stock 3.0 to 3.75ghz with Big Shrukin Rev. B fan, in a tiny Apevia MicroDesktop case. Never seen temps above 40C. For it's size and rating, the AMD AM3 Regor 250 3.0ghz CPU is dollar for dollar, a great investment. Don't go high end gaming or space shuttle launching, but for basic office, email, internet, it's all you'll need for the forseable future.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: Price point is great. It's not an X6 and will not run like one, but it's not supposed to. For what it is, this is a great little CPU!

5 out of 5 eggsGood dual core

Pros: Ordered it for a basic build for a customer, am very pleased with its performance. No, its not a phenom, but it performs very well nonetheless, I was surprised at how well it performs, runs cool, and does everything its supposed to.

Cons: Is AMD getting cheap these days? seems like the heatsinks keep getting smaller and smaller with every new AMD CPU I order. I guess its not really a con, because it keeps it plenty cool (well within specs) Can't comment on the thermal paste applied, it seemed a little thick, but I dont know as I cleaned it off and applied Arctic silver 5 (always do on any build, I want to know that its going to run cool enough)

Other Thoughts: Good CPU.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Budget Processor

Pros: I bought this for a budget build and I couldn't believe the performance this little processor provided. The fan is quiet, the installation went smoothly and I couldn't be happier with how well this thing performs at the pricing point.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a budget build to do every day e-mail, web browsing and light gaming, this is where you should stop your search.
