5 out of 5 eggsStill working just fine. Moving to HTPC

Pros: I've head this chip for years now and it is still running fine.
Shows a 6.1 WEI and its the best upgrade available for AM2 motherboards.

I have this paired with a GTS 250 and it plays most games just fine. Plays HD video with no complaints.

My daughter had MCE, WMP, and Zune software playing all at the same time. It was a cacophany, but everything played just fine.

Cons: None for the price at the time ($45) and durability.

This will be my first new MoBo in 8 or 9 years, lol.

Other Thoughts: Chip idles about 30C and during heavy gaming will go as high as 54 during heavy gaming (World in Conflict).

I am moving this to a HTPC build since it plays HD video just fine, especially paired with the GTS250.

Athalon 64x 6000+
MSI Neo 9n MB
PNY GeForce GTS 250
4 GB Gskill RAM
Rocketfish 550watt PS
WD 1.5 TB
Seagate 1 TB
Antec 300 illusion

I am replacing this with a new gaming rig.
i5 3570
EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (maybe 2?)
GSKILL 32GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)
OCZ Vertex 60GB SSD)
Seagate 2TB
OCZ 750 watt bronze

I can only hope this new build lasts as long as my old one has.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD 6000

Pros: This chip is strong enough for most people's computing needs. Only the gamers would want more. Music, video, web activities, + misc editing- of these are all handled well. I've had this for 2 years running. Good solid value.

Cons: Heat. At 125w, it can run warm, at least it's not 140w. A good cooler is warranted. Most heat problems stem from poor case cooling.

Other Thoughts: Yes, my chip is oc'd-so it does handle it. Running liquid cooling, Geil ddr2-8500, & ATI 5770 on Asrock board. Running temp does not exceed 124 F. even under sustained max load at 3.15 mhz. Windows 7/64 bit.

5 out of 5 eggsGet one while you can

Pros: Have been using a Windsor 5200+ for more than a year in an everyday PC with Win 7 Beta, RC, and now Pro (all 64-bit). Boots surprisingly fast and overall performance is more than acceptable. No problems whatsoever. Runs on a Gigabyte GA-MA790X-UDP4 with 4GB of GSkill PC2-8500 teamed with a Visiontek HD 3870 OC which has also been great except for a little excessive fan noise from time to time.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you're an AMD fan boy or girl and don't have a good Windsor in your collection then get one while you can. Waited a long time for the Athlon 64 to mature and, it turned out, Windsor was probably the peak. The 5200+ Windsor is at least as good if not slightly faster than a 5400+ Brisbane. Surprisingly, haven't tried overclocking since it runs so well stock.

5 out of 5 eggsSWEET!!!

Pros: Coupled with 8Gb of RAM, this little puppy spanks Win2K8 srvr. Did give it a slight tweek, running at 3.4, stock air. No issues whatsoever.

Cons: Even with 8Gb of memory, it can't remember to add cream to my coffee.

Other Thoughts: Maybe Dual-Core (nowadays its 4-way and 6-way...). It is more than stout enough to do the job.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD 6000+ 125watt

Pros: Runs smooth and it IS powerful. Complete some benchmarks faster than AMD's competitor can using my stopwatch for real time tests, because some benchmarks can favor certain CPU makes.

Cons: No cons. well... it won't beat an i7 but its still faster than a red squirrel on caffeine.

Other Thoughts: Runs perfectly fine on a BIOSTAR A770 A2+ motherboard which states it will only take 95 watt chips... posted fine for me. Then I upgrade this chip to an AMD 9850 quad core on same board and the quad core wouldn't post until I upgrade bios from the 3/2008 bios to the 7/2008 bios... now the 125watt quad core posts on the A770 A2+ 95watt motherboard and runs like a champ! Both CPU's were 40-Celcius at idle with a stock AMD Aluminum heatsink and 4000rpm 80mm fan pulled off a sempron system... who says you need a nice cooler??? What most people need and refuse to have is a high rpm fan.. that is really all you need. My cheesy stock aluminum heatsink with a super light layer (just a dot smeared around with my FINGER which is a NO-NO according to instructions on applying thermal paste) of thermal paste works great! But if you have to have the snazzy cpu cooler then go and pay top $$$.

5 out of 5 eggsGood AMD Processor

Pros: This Processor is the great and last CPU for the AM2 socket. I bought it to replace the an AMD Athlon 64 3800+. It is a huge performance increase. They were designed the same year (2005) and have the same die shrink (90nm). I like how it has 2MB of L2 cache which is a big jump from 512Kb. I was unsure about the Wattage, but its labeled 125W. Dont let this scare you. I have a 450Watt PSU and everything runs fine.

Cons: not a con, but maybe more cache. Miss labeled does not run hot if you have a good case.

Other Thoughts: Wish my Mobo was a AM2+ or i would have bought a Phenom processor.

2 out of 5 eggsTo RMA or not to RMA?

Pros: Faster than 3600+ it is replacing.

Cons: Core#1 hardware faults in Prime95 in less than an hour. Temperatures are maxing out at only 45C with CoolerMaster 212+.

Other Thoughts: Bargain processor becomes less of a bargain when adding the cost to return a semi-functional defective.
