5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I'm a Mini ITX enthusiast. This processor only requires 45W and it is a beast. 2.4 GHZ at 45W is astounding. I've stressed tested this CPU running a game, rendering a hi def video, downloading a song, and streaming a 1080p movie and not one core hit 100%. I'm using an Akasa low profile heatsink fan with arctic silver 5. This CPU doesn't get over 45C with that heatsink fan and in my Armor A30 case.

Cons: Not one.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking to build a mini ITX gaming PC and want 4 cores, get this. I wanted a Phenom II x4, but my CPU wattage allowance was only 45W so I went with this. I was ordering it with dread until I watched some stress tests on youtube and saw what this CPU is capable of. Do not hesitate. And remember. 2 Gs or RAM PER CORE!!!!!!! No matter what.

5 out of 5 eggsQuad core at 45W

Pros: Quad core at 45 watts. What more can you ask for? Everything seems to be working great with it. Handles all the tasks that I've thrown at it so far.

Cons: None really

5 out of 5 eggsCooool

Pros: Very cool, remains quiet under load (with stock heatsink & fan), low power usage, great for HTPC.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this CPU for my HTPC as recommended by and have been pleased ever since. 2.4Ghz @ 45W is perfect for an HTPC. Paired with a Radeon HD 5770 and is great for gaming as well.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 45W Quad core - what else could you want? I have two quad core machines(other 65W CPU) running idle at 140W.

Cons: It's not the 615e or 620e. Wouldn't mind the higher clock cycles. I guess the Athalon cache sizes are smaller, but I doubt I'll notice it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat value and green

Pros: Low power draw, so cheap and easy to cool and offering good perf for the money

Cons: Still a price premium on low power

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Stays very cool, even under load.

Cons: Stock fan's a little loud for my taste, probably going to replace with a quieter one, maybe a different heatsink.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the Buck if you can get it

Pros: Low power consumption in a quad core, ideal for my always-on VMWare server.

Cons: A bit high-priced compared to its 95w counterpart which I have installed in a desktop. However, for a server that is always on I'll take the power savings.

Other Thoughts: Note that the 615e is now out (2.5 GHz instead of 2.4) at a slightly higher price. Sadly, Newegg doesn't carry this one yet but if you're looking for it the PRO might be to have another VANTAGE point.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Egg didn't have the 610e.

Pros: Like Mark (10/8/2010), this processor nicely replaced a working 45W 5050e in an AM2+ Socket.

Both CPU's showed idle and max-load power draw of 40W and 81W on a "Kill A Watt" meter from the wall plug. However, routine use showed a significant power reduction, as this CPU has much more headroom than the 5050e and spends more time in Cool-n-Quiet mode.

Max observed core temp was 34ºC under an artificially heavy load (4x threads of CPU Burn for 15 minutes), with uncured thermal paste.

Qualitatively, the machine feels smoother and more responsive, and it boots and shuts down faster. That AND low power draw? What more could you ask?

Cons: Couldn't get it from the Egg and payed more elsewhere. It sure would have been nice to know NewEgg was going to stock it -- might have waited for it and saved money, too.

Other Thoughts: This is a neglected family room machine, running in an unventilated cabinet that simply MUST stay quiet and keep itself alive. Low-power/ high-efficiency/ high-quality components and decent integrated graphics do the trick.

This is a C3 stepping CPU.

Significant components:
This CPU: AMD Athlon II X4 610e
WD Caviar Green 640GB

5 out of 5 eggs4 core, fast, cool N quiet

Pros: I bought this to replace an AMD 2 core 5050e chip that I used for a few years
Efficient, low power CPU that is fast enough for everything I do.
Even though its been running 100% load 24/7 for months on WorldCommunityGrid project, the fan runs slow so the computer is quiet.

Cons: may not be a crunching powerhouse but it does everything I need

Other Thoughts: there should be more CPU's and motherboards that are tuned for reduced power consumption while keeping reasonable performance!
