4 out of 5 eggsPretty good processor

Pros: Good for the price and long-lasting as a CPU.

Cons: None, really.

Other Thoughts: It's pretty nice for something that was released seven years ago. The paste has dried on the heatsink/CPU, it still runs hot on hot days under moderate usage, and it's obviously not as fast as modern CPUs. Still, it can browse the web and it is responsive in most applications.

5 out of 5 eggsFast processor for ordinary use; more than adequate stock fan

Pros: No problems during and after installation. The stock thermal pad / paste appears more than adequate.

While burning DVD's, using TV tuner etc. the CPU temperature does not exceed 36 deg Celsius (97 deg F).

Cons: None noted yet, in 9 months of moderate use.

Other Thoughts: No fast or slow games in use. So, have no idea of CPU temperatures etc. under those circumstances.

Installed in a MSI motherboard and an Antec 1650 case, with no side fan.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Processor

Pros: Great value processor for a new Vista system for my sister. Paired up with 2GB OCZ RAM and a Gigabyte 690G motherboard.

Cons: Heatsink. Thought with this being the 65W version stock HS would be okay. Temps got a little too high (55 full load in Orthos) in my Ultra MicroFly case. Bigger case would probably work okay for temps, but I had to add a heatpipe cooler to get temps down where I wanted them.

Other Thoughts: Wanted low wattage CPU and chose this over Brisbanes because the 2.4ghz works for DDR2-800. The 2.1 or 2.3Ghz parts give you DDR2-700 or DDR2-767. Not that it really matters much. Cool n quiet is interesting. CPU throttles to 1000 mhz, and Ram goes to 1000/5 = 200 mhz (DDR2-400). So I guess cool n quiet is underclocking both the CPU and RAM to save power. Nice touch. This system runs at about 60 watts (from the wall) idle, perfect for an always on system.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Big improvement over my old Athlon XP 2700+. PCMark scores doubled. Stock HSF seems to cool the CPU just fine.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Pair with with 2GB of DDR2-800 and you're good to go.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Processor to Upgrade the Pastor's Ailing Computer

Pros: What I like about this processor is it provides good value. The processor has plenty of performance for office content creation. I like the Cool n' Quiet features of this processor, providing a capacity for even lower power consumption. The provided heatsink/fan is adequate and controls die temperatures well. During Prime95 testing, die temperatures did not exceed 35C after 1 hour of operation with both cores at 2.4 GHz.

Cons: There are none.

Other Thoughts: I purchased the AMD 64 X2 4600+ processor as part of a upgrade project to modernize my Pastor's ailing six year old computer. The Cool'n Quiet drivers control frequency from 800Mhz to 2.4 GHz. During periods when the PC is idle, temperatures from the PC case and Power supply are very cool. The AMD 64 X2 4600+ is perfect for economical upgrading an office computer to current technology. The completed Pastor PC upgrade: ASUS M2A-VM 690G AM2 Mobo, AMD Athlon 64 X2 4600+ (65W) CPU, Mushkin 996529R 2GB DDR2-800 Memory, Pioneer DVR-112D DVD Combo Burner, Seagate 250GB ST3250310AS Harddrive, Seasonic SS-300 SFD SFX12V Power supply, and Windows XP Home.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Performance

Pros: No compatibility issues with the Foxconne mobo that I purchased to go with it, particularly with running on Ubuntu Linux. Dual core 64-bit CPU's are difficult to find software for, but Linux seemed to have no issue with it whatsoever.

Cons: Runs a little warm, even for an AMD, but the included fan seems to be doing the job in spite of high in-home temperatures.

Other Thoughts: Used this to build a Linux box for Ubuntu. The entire procedure was simple and there were no surprises with compatibility issues.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD Rocks

Pros: Fast, quiet, COOL !!! Survived Prime95 torture test for 8 hours without a hitch (on the stock heatsink+fan).

Cons: The stock heatsing fan is kind of loud for my taste, I'm gonna replace it with ZEROterm 92mm.
