5 out of 5 eggsStill alive and kicking

Pros: After 3 years of heavy gaming it's still running like new and on the stock cooler no less. There is some lagging on games that require more CPU power but once I turn off the post processing effects and limit the frames it's all good. Was used in my first PC and I went for budget but it more than stood it's own in everything I did.

Cons: Mine wasn't one of the unlockable Phenoms but otherwise nothing comes to mind.

Other Thoughts: Finally replacing it with a Phenom II x4 965 BE but it will be handed down to my niece for her first PC.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for its time

Pros: - Good quality and speed for its time
- underated performance

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The last build I did with this was about 2 years ago, paired it with 8 gigs of ram and 7200 rpm/ 32cache hdd and a 6670 vid card, and the person is very happy with the build, it was a low budget build back then and came out to just under 300 without a monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsEnjoying PHENOM-inal speed!

Pros: Ended up owning a Phenom II with l3 cache quad for 45 bucks! Reliable and fast, paired with a 9600gso 512 mn nvidia that I got for 25 new, my 8 yr old plays steam games just fine! No lag at all on his 20 inch 1920 by 1080....WOW

Cons: Like blunt zephyr said, I wish they'd keep making these little chips like they are the P II 965 B.E. chips as these are epic and will serve a budget niche for another year minimum. C'mon AMD change the dies and make another batch of these, they'll go fast!!

Other Thoughts: Sorry blunt zephyr but there's still plenty of new ones out there lol...! Got lucky and bought 2 for 90 and 2 9600gso's vid cards for 50 and 2 biostar a78.... micro mobo's for 70 so both my youngest boys have nice little gaming systems for chump change versus the performance. Go RANA Go ! Buy one if u want a good budget cpu with a chance to end up with a Phenom II with L3 cache.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Very stable., and works great.

THE BEST value (bang for the buck) of any AMD CPU when I bought it.

I'm not into overclocking, but I AM into undervolting... :D
Kept at stock speeds, and undervolted to 1.2V, it's running prime95 @ 37deg C on a Hyper 212 Plus for 12 hours now with no issues.

Cons: On a Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5, the BIOS cannot unlock a fourth core. Oh well, I didn't buy a X4, I bought a X3...

Playing SWTOR (a heavily multi-threaded game), all 3 cores are pegged between 70-80%. Definitely the limiting factor in my system for better fps. But again, this isn't exactly a gaming CPU!

Other Thoughts: This CPU has an amazing Bang-for-Buck value. Each core is just slightly faster than my brother's e8400, but I have 3, and he has 2 lol.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing performance /$

Pros: Bought as part of a bundle w/ Gigabyte mobo.
Unlocked 4th core, CPU-Z sees it as Phenom II X4.
Runs overclock stable @ 3.85ghz on 1.39V. It will readily go to stable 4.1 ghz, but there's no need to push it further. 68 deg C on junk kit cooler.

Cons: None!k

Other Thoughts: It's more processor then I paid for.

Intel is now the high-end king (sandy bridge & coming ivy bridge parts), but AMD is still the king for enthusiasts. Processors are durable and made to overclock. AMD delivers incredible performance for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!

Pros: Great price for a CPU that handles all my mid-level gaming and video transcoding very well. I was able to unlock the 4th core. A few times it has lost the unlock on boot, but I have always been able to get the 4th core back. Other than that it's been rock solid.

Cons: None
