5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Going strong for 3+ years. Can still run modern games. Solid.

Cons: Does seem to get a little warm, even with after market fans, but I think that might be a ventilation problem with my case.

5 out of 5 eggs3 years, Going Strong!

Pros: Extremely fast. Extremely Cool (using stock & customer heatsinks both) Very reliable processor. It's easy to install, easy to overclock on the board I have, and it's been the heart of my design business for 3 years.

Cons: None that I can tell so far. It runs the way it should, has tons of bells and whistles under the hood that make it as powerful as some newer processors, minus the integrated gfx chips but hell, that's what video cards are for!

5 out of 5 eggsA real trooper

Pros: This was a great processor while I had it. It's now in a friends computer as a gift, but boy it really could put out. I was able to run most of all modern day games at med-high. I did overclock to 4.2Ghz, but I could not get passed that mark using Hyper 212 Evo with 2 fans. It's certainly worth the money, and If I was building another buget machine, I'd buy another one.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsThe little processor that could

Pros: An old CPU that's still a beast till this day. paired with a 7870 Tahiti and over clocked to 3.8 GHZ, I get around 50 to 60 frames in BF4 (depending on the map)

Cons: it's starting to show it's age.

5 out of 5 eggsStill usefull in 2014

Pros: I have been running the Phenom II series of processors for a few years not.

clocks to 4ghz (my other one is at 4.2 with water)

Performance on par with overclocked core two intel chips and sometimes on par with 1st gen i7 cpus.

Cons: Consumes a good amount of power and will run hot if not cooled well.

Other Thoughts: I just used some benchmarks on my 4.2ghz system to compare against AMDs newest FX chips (overclocked) and their newest APUS. My phenom beats all the APUs easily and most of the 4 and 6 core FX chips. The 8 core chip can beat me only in threaded applications. The FX chips still have a lower IPC than the Phenom II.

Ive been looking for a reason to upgrade and I simply cant find one. For a chip so old it is still very competitive with all of AMD's offerings. The newest intel i3 cannot touch it. Only the intel i5 and i7 processors can bring the heat and they still cost twice to triple as much.

I have an AM3+ board so I am waiting and hopping AMD will drop another CPU into this socket. It does not look like they will and I will most likely grab the highest clocked 8 core offering they have and overclock it in my water loop. That is my only option if I want an "upgrade" without having to switch to intel (and buyer another board)

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost 2 years

Pros: -Runs great has a full 2 year use from what I can give.

-Can almost compete with next gen processors

-Price for 3.4 GHz is an outstanding price

-Runs all games with great fps

-I can guarantee 2 years with this processor if you take really good care of your machine.

Cons: With next gen processors I would mainly suggest this if you can't pull out the extra $90 for the Vishera 8-core 4.0 GHz processor. The reason for this is because with today top end motherboards are limited unless you use a top end processor it is compatible with just to get the most out of your machine.

Other Thoughts: I used this processor with my build of the Asus Sabertooth 990FX Version 1 which is no longer in the markets. R2.0 can support this Processor and have extra hardware and software compared to it's older sibling. I do have to say it was a great run with this processor while it lasted but I will be upgrading to the Vishera very soon.

5 out of 5 eggsYou missed out.

Pros: I've been running this for just over a year now, after picking it up for under $100. Amazing chip.

Cons: Stock cooler is not really sufficient to keep this cool under load. AMD states max temp is 62c, With stock cooler, I was seeing high 50s when under load.
