5 out of 5 eggsFree core.

Pros: I bought this to build a Windows server at home to practice with. It is not a production machine. I was able to unlock the 4th core and it has been stable for a few years now.

Cons: None. I got what I paid for plus some.

Other Thoughts: Running four cores 16 GB RAM and various hard drives. Rock solid for a least two years now.

2 out of 5 eggsGave up the ghost after a year

Pros: Inexpensive, easily overclocked CPU.

Cons: After the first year, the processor began to crash whenever the core temp went over 40C. I sent it back to AMD for replacement.

This may be due in part to the cheap heat sink, fan, and thermal paste that comes with the unit. I purchased an aftermarket heat sink with fan and some arctic silver to do the job right when the replacement arrives.

Other Thoughts: I had no issues with it while it worked.

5 out of 5 eggs<3

Pros: Love, love, love this processor. You see all the mess about the unlockable core. Don't buy this if you're gambling - buy it because it's a rock solid monster.

Cons: Some of those who /do/ buy it for the purpose of unlocking a fourth core will find disappointment. Mine didn't (yes, I had the right mobo and BIOS), and I was fine with that. I get 50fps in demanding current generation games. YMMV, of course.

Other Thoughts: The price was perfect when I bought it - under a Benjamin! Now it seems scarce and that's a shame.

5 out of 5 eggsThree Headed Dragon

Pros: Fast, cheap, and stable. High performance. Easy to overclock with a slight voltage change depending on ram/ hyperthreading speed. Able to unlock core, its built on the phenom deneb core without l3 cache and a 4th core.

Cons: No l3 cache. Bottlenecks at times, mainly due to no l3 which some programs utilize like video editing etc etc. Newegg no longer stocks this so go for another rana model.

Other Thoughts: For this price and the ability to unlock a core/ cache & being easily able to overclock makes this a champ! Runs at a good temperature with the right cooling. Been running stable overclocked @ 205mhz ht for over 8 months now. AMD does it again!

5 out of 5 eggsBig Improvement.

Pros: Works great. No problems.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This is a big imporvement over the 2.8gig pentium d that I was using. I use it with the ASRock K10N78M-PRO motherboard.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Buy! Unlocked 4th Core!

Pros: -High stock clock speed
-Easily overclocked
-Unlocked 4th core (Phenom II B40)
-Good performance even at stock levels

Cons: -Not for sale anymore? Find it elsewhere if you are interested because it's an awesome value

Other Thoughts: Unlocked 4th core on an MSI 880GMA-E45 MicroATX motherboard. Has worked solidly at both stock clock and @ 3.2 GHz.

Deserves 6 stars!

5 out of 5 eggsGood solid CPU

Pros: Inexpensive, stable and good performance. I was able to overclock this to the limits allowed by my memory, and achieved a speed of 3.5 GHz. The system has remained very stable under heavy computing loads at this speed.

Cons: The fourth core was unstable when unlocked, but if I was so concerned with getting a fourth core, then I should have purchased a quad core outright.

Other Thoughts: A good value for the money, although as I do simulations work I now wish I had explicitly purchased a quad core. Overall, I am happy with the purchase.
