5 out of 5 eggsAwesome upgrade on a budget

Pros: Cheap! Quad core and it runs cool, compared to my old X2 5400+ this chip is almost 20C colder at idle and the same at heavy load. Game performance has almost doubled my gramerates in SWTOR - now consistent 20-30 -- Need new video card as well :)

Cons: none this thing rocks

Other Thoughts: For those thinking their old dual core will be good enough to run modern games if you just buy a $$ video card, sorry but your wrong.. I slapped a Gtx580 in my rig and with my old CPU i had almost no improvement. Put my outdated HD4850 back in and then this quad core CPU and framerates almost doubled. Great buy!

Pros: Went from a single core to a Quad core. I'm blown away so bad my hair hasn't come down yet. Don't think, just get it and you too will be a believer.

5 out of 5 eggsI Love It!

Pros: FAST! Our old PC was an AMD 1.4 GHZ. Quad Cores at 3 Ghz! Lordy mama what a difference! No more hiccups with the streaming video!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Using this with Win XP Pro 32 bit on on an MSI 760GM-P23 (FX) MOBO. This was part of a Newegg DIY Combo PC Kit.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU, bad packaging

Pros: Awesome power for the price, came with a combo. Runs games like a breeze. Installed no problem after straightening some bent teeth.

Cons: Was shipped in generic packaging with the teeth shoved into a piece styrofoam, which bent several of them, if I didn't have really good eyes and extremely steady hands, I would have sent it back instead of carefully straightening them before installing.

Other Thoughts: I will reconsider purchasing CPU's from newegg in the future.

4 out of 5 eggsnot so good I think????

Pros: well it does work very fast. I can run up to 20 apps at once. I have even run 3 high def movies with different players without a problem, Here's the hitch: I can't get it to slow down. At startup it seems to be way overclocked, even with one of the cores locked.

Cons: It raises the pitch of any audio or video by a full step (music term) Sounds like people are suckin on helium balloons. Happens weather on you tube, netflix, media center, or even vids I have on my drives. Am hoping a 72 hour burn in will help. But if not rma time. I have done multiple tests on all hardware and software. It just won't run at the right speed. I will try lowering the voltage to the cpu, but I don't think the motha board will allow it. This came as a combo package with the Biostar A880G+ so I am relativly sure the seller knows the 2 match. Or do they??? only time will tell I guess.

Other Thoughts: Maybe a little support from the seller might be helpfull.

5 out of 5 eggsNice..

Pros: Very pleased to finally have made the switch from dual core to quad core, lol. I'm pleased with the performance.

Cons: OEM cpus apparently don't come with Heatsinks. Keep that in mind or you may end up like me. By trying to save a measly $5 bucks, I ended up sinking an additional $30 at the local store for a heatsink and some paste.

Other Thoughts: If you already have a heatsink, this is definitely a great value for a quality cpu. If you don't already have a heatsink, throw in the additional $5 and get this thing New.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU!

Pros: Runs strong, stays cool and gets everything done! Installed this cpu in a Asus Crosshair IV Formula board with 8gb DDR3 1600mhz ram and it hasn't had a single hiccup. I also monitored the temps of the cpu before and after pressing the OverClock button built into the mother board... before: 27 degrees C at idle after: 31 degrees at idle. The board overclocked the chip to 3.5ghz per core and I haven't had an issue with it! No overheating, no problems! Great CPU for the money and even better value if you like to overclock!

Cons: Cooling fan that came with it is pretty freakin small for a quad core... so I used my old stock AMD cooler that I had laying around that has copper pipes and is taller than 1"
