5 out of 5 eggsStable, low power, and 64 bit capable

Pros: Low power, Reliable

Cons: not an I7 ;)

Other Thoughts: Good for a linux machine, web browser, or small home server uses. Won't stream to ten computers at once, but excellent for one maybe two pc at a time nas.

5 out of 5 eggsCapable and Inexpensive

Pros: Extremely capable overclocker with the right motherboard and cooling. I was able to unlock this processor's second core, and then OC it to 3.8Ghz on air.
Currently being used in a small NAS server I built that consumes only 40w at idle from the wall.

Cons: This processor can be rather disappointing if purchased for the wrong use case. (It's not supposed to beat a Core i7 afterall...)

Other Thoughts: Purchased as a temporary CPU until bulldozer was released. It did its' job well, encoding h.264 movies and heavy gaming. Now it is content sipping power in a NAS.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap, unlocked and overclocked

Pros: Able to unlock it using the combo'd Biostar A880GU3 mobo (hit F4 at BIOS). Overlocked to 3.25 GHz (upped VCore slightly and changed CPU value from 200 to 250).

I just needed something for a cheap secondary HTPC. Using XBMC with the video offloaded onto the integrated 4250 graphics chip it played a 1080p mkv perfectly using only 15-20% cpu. Navigating the UI was extremely fast.

Cons: If it hadn't of unlocked I would have been sad.

Other Thoughts: If the CPU isn't marked retail or doesn't show the retail box, just expect the processor in a tiny plastic case. I had a spare AM3 cooler so that wasn't an issue.

4 out of 5 eggsGenerally good bang for the buck.

Pros: Actually pretty fast. Should not be underestimated. It runs normal desktop stuff, simpler games, emulation, and etc all just fine without any hitches.
Single core (lower power usage for the same clock/voltage.)
Excellent price. For a processor at this price range it's hard to beat.
Extremely low power usage even without Cool'n'Quiet. Once I tracked down the "AMD Processor Driver" for XP (Vista and 7 shouldn't need it) my system dropped down nearly another 10 watts in idle power usage.
Runs extremely cool. When I ran Prime95 for a little while (just ten minutes or so -- enough for the temperature changes to level off and stop) it only got up to about 35C even hitting 34C from time to time then. Idle is more around 26-28C for me (28 in BIOS, 26 in Windows where Cool'n'Quiet takes over -- and at this point it's running into limitations of the incoming air's temperature.) CPU-Z says max TDP is actually 41 watts instead of 45, and I'm inclined to believe it might just be right.

Cons: Does not come with a heatsink. In fact, I almost messed up and failed to notice before it was too late. It does say this on the page, but it's not immediately obvious. I just got the really cheap Cooler Master DK9-7E52A-0L-GP which purportedly is no better than the stock HSF at actual cooling (but much quieter) and despite all that the CPU is no more than a hot day outside when being pushed. (I did clean off the thermal compound that came on it and put on Arctic Silver 5 though. I have more Arctic Silver 5 than I know what to do with, so saw no reason not to use it. I have no clue what was on there, but it was very lightweight and thin -- almost watery -- so I doubt it's much better than your typical ceramique.) I have to take off one star just because it's such a pain and because people might make the same mistake I almost did, then get stuck with a chip they can't use for days (plus it adds to the cost.)
Single core (also a con since it performs worse in theory.)

Other Thoughts: I do think people underestimate single core and overestimate multicore. (These days everyone thinks they need 4+ cores even, then they run a bunch of applications or games that barely can even multithread and thus would perform better on a faster dual core and maybe not even much worse on a good single core.) On a well optimized system like the one I've set up, this CPU actually seems to run things extremely well. Once I get a proper videocard I can test more in gaming, but so far it's pulling off some simpler physics-based games where graphics requirements are low, emulation, and etc just fine. This is not only excellent for its intended market, but I think it excels more than people may realize at heavier tasks as well. I wouldn't recommend it for a main encoding system or Folding@Home system, but for lighter gaming, desktop use, and etc, its low cost, low temperature, and low power usage are well worth looking into.

5 out of 5 eggsBrilliant

Pros: I use these in my home server builds...perfect for the application.

Cons: Not game enough for small business use and up, but for the price you would hardly expect it.

Other Thoughts: I shall continue to use these for my single family servers.

5 out of 5 eggsCrazy awesome little CPU

Pros: I installed this in a Crosshair V motherboard that had automatic overclocking and core unlocking enabled (and I wasn't aware it was) - the processor showed up as a 3.4GHz dual core and is perfectly stable. I did absolutely no tweaking; the motherboard did everything!

Cons: At stock speed and with a single core, this is a pretty sluggish processor.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as a stopgap to fill the AM3+ socket while I wait for the Bulldozers to be released. This processor is not on ASUS's supported processor list (it starts at the Sempron 140), but it does work in the Crosshair V.

5 out of 5 eggssurprised!

Pros: Unlocked second core and running stable as of now. I used the stock cooler from my quad core phenom (still brand new with all of the thermal compound). Unfortunately, the cooler covers up a ram slot on the board I'm using, but it's a cheapie Zotac with a 4gb limit, so I just used one 4gb stick. Can't beat a 2.6GHz dual core for $30!

Cons: none as of now

Other Thoughts: not for gamers like me, but this went into the living room rig that's only used as a home theater

5 out of 5 eggsUsed Semprons have no unlock

Pros: Overclock to 3.5GHz Stable. Scores higher then 1.6 Dual Cores when overclocked.

Gives Fluent movement like dual cores when you have enough RAM.

Cons: Because it is used and open box, you can be almost guaranteed that it will not unlock to a dual core.
