5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade for budget Dell Poweredge T105

Pros: This chip was bought to upgrade a Dell T105 bought on sale with a dual core Opteron 1210 CPU, this chip slipped right in, used Dell cooling solution and everything just worked. I paid $129, Dell wanted about $350-400 for the upgrade at build time (I paid less for the entire system). This gives a great boost in performance for minimal investment.

Cons: Be very certain you know your MB/BIOS can work with the Opteron chips before you order one, these are server CPUs and as such many lower-cost MBs don't seem to either support them at all, or support them poorly.

Other Thoughts: This was a great investment, I would encourage everyone that buys a Poweredge T105 to consider this upgrade through Newegg, cost-effective and very affordable (sorry to see it's not $99 any longer...)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great, careful on your board

Pros: For a quad core, very inexpensive
Good clock speed for a server chip
Low TDP (75W)

Cons: Not many AM2 server boards around

Other Thoughts: I got this with the combo deal for an ASUS M2N-L board. I would recommend looking for another board if you get this chip, but if you do, I had huge problems getting it to boot Windows Server, and ACPI issues when booting an old Linux install. These went away after I swapped out the chip and swapped it back in, so I guess life is full of mysteries

More to the point, however, I have some specs :). This chip is used in a box that's primarily a fileserver but will be used to pick up services whenever necessary. At the moment, it's under a fairly light load and running around ~40C with a $12 Rosewill cooler.

This is definitely a great budget server chip. While it might not have SMT like the new Xeons, a similarly clocked E5520 is $270 more right now. If you can find a motherboard you like that supports this chip, it should certainly not disappoint based on its specs.

5 out of 5 eggsWell Worth It!!

Pros: Does just what you would expect a quad-core processor to do: make short work of large tasks.

Creating a Apricorn image of 40GB worth of data at High compression yields a 20GB image file, which took around 80 minutes on old 6000+ dually, this cpu has it down to around 30 minutes on same settings with same hardware*

Also, while creating that image, it does it at only 60% usage on each core, as opposed to 90-100% on each core of 6000+ dually for same settings and same hardware*

*Biostar TF520 A2+ mobo did require the latest bios update from Biostar website.

Cons: The flashing of the BIOS was a little hairy, but that should probably not be considered a con for the CPU. It is an Opteron, which the mobo does not claim to support but for which it does provide support with a flash of the latest bios file.

Other Thoughts: I run several instances of Sun Solaris10 in a VirtualBox environment from inside an XP Pro installation, and my 6000+ dual core would bog down at times. Therefore, I took a chance on upgrading to a quad-core instead of a whole new system. Results are great; I am happy; you will be too.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat chip for the money

Pros: -Runs exceptionally cool
-Has more than enough horsepower for most tasks
-Proven Opteron reliability (Cray uses these chips)
-Price makes quad-core affordable for anyone

Cons: -The only thing I wish it had is DDR3 support

Other Thoughts: I'm running this with a Gigabyte GA-MA790FX-UD5P (F4A BIOS) using a Xigmatek S1283 heatsink. The motherboard detected the chip just fine on first boot, and Crystal CPUID does as well. The advanced power management features built into this Opteron chip combined with the excellent performance of this heatsink make for a great low-temperature setup. At idle the core temp. is just above room temperature, and with World Comm. Grid running on all four cores the core temp. is about 20*F higher than room temp. This chip doesn't cause my room to heat up quite like the X2 6000+ it replaced did. Oh, and how can you beat an enterprise-class quad core for $100?!?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat low-end Server Processor

Pros: Great price and runs fairly cool for a quad core. Makes my WHS do everything I want it too and leaves room for further roles in the future.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Replaced the Athlon 4850e in my WHS. Works great as the heart of my Home Server.

5 out of 5 eggsQuad-core under 100

Pros: * A quad-core under 100.00
* AMD
* Low wattage

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Based on pricing, replaced a system using a 65w dual-core Brisbane running at stock 2.8 and used an ASUS M3A76-CM motherboard as my previous Abit MB was AM2 only. As this CPU is based off the Phenom series, it will...probably, be recognized by most AM2+ motherboards. It runs great for my uses, but might be a big time CPU for gaming.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Great

Pros: My copy of ubuntu x64 runs perfectly with this chip, i have not noticed any spike in temp over 50c yet, but probably because of my 1u cooler. very happy with it, i would recommend this chip to anybody building a low budget server that just needs to do some serious number crunching.

Cons: not really a con, but if you buy it as a combo on this website with the ASUS M2N-LR server board, watch out, it wont work until you flash the bios to the newest version. newegg tends not to research this when they are making combo deals.

Other Thoughts: for the price, AMD>Intel

5 out of 5 eggsGOOD BUY

Pros: I bought this CPU on April 17. I installed it on a DELL T105 (BIOS 1.32) to replace a dual-core Opteron 1212 CPU. Everything works as expected.

Cons: No cons so far

Other Thoughts: I paid $129 at that time. However it showed as $99 yesterday. I called Newegg and they will give $30 back to me in 3 to 5 days.

I highly recommend this CPU for a DELL T105 upgrade. My buy experience at Newegg is a very positive one.

5 out of 5 eggsfollow up

Pros: Great multitasker, the near constant utilization of all cores under a moderate load is both a surprise and welcome.

Cons: Checked CPU temperature several times after running for ~ 2hr. stints, and I'm usually in the 50-55C range, albeit in a mATX case.

Other Thoughts: Thought it would run cooler @75W TDP, but after a little research, stumbled on the fact that at the time AMD released these units, they had revised their method for determining TDP.
Previously, TDP was calculated with the chip stressed under heavy load. In order to level the playing field and bring their figures in line with how Intel calculates TDP, the new figures represent what was obtained using an "average" load. Essentially, the power usage on this chip is pretty much the same as an 9650 (95W) if you use the old method to determine it. Probably the only real difference between the two chips is in the memory contoller, and somewhat higher test/QC criteria for the Opteron.
