5 out of 5 eggsWonderful

Pros: I was able to push this little thing to 4.0Ghz at 1.52Volts. Which I find just fantastic! When Running stock speeds the temps sit around in the 20's at full load. The power consumption is low, and it is cheap! For Browsing the internet, HTPC build, lower end gaming, or an upgrade from a single core. I recommended this CPU. The cooler it came with is a low profile cooler, much shorter than the black edition cooler.

Cons: Lower Frequency, could get a faster one for a tad bit more
