5 out of 5 eggsFast and dependable

Pros: I've had this CPU for 5 years and it still works like a charm.

Cons: It runs really hot. The stock CPU fan just didn't cut it. I had to buy another one from a 3rd party vender.

Other Thoughts: Good CPU for the cost.

3 out of 5 eggsMy Last AMD

Pros: AMD at one point was.. closer to Intel in terms of speed. But now that the gap has gotten bigger, it's worth spending another $100+ to get a lot more speed! Price per Performance just isn't there anymore with AMDs.

Cons: Slow, Eats up power. Hot

5 out of 5 eggsBang for your Buck!

Pros: Price Price Price!! performance is amazing, the price is a huge kicker.

Cons: stock cooler was SCARY to put on..very very tight fit but I guess you want good contact for good cooling.
stock fan is super loud even when at idle. but with a fast chip like this you should prob get an aftermarket cooler anyhow.

Other Thoughts: High power usage is kinda a con but you can tweak that if your not putting a heavy work-load on it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU

Pros: Fast processor, haven't had any trouble with it, and it never even gets warm when putting a lot of stress on it.

Cons: CPU fan was kind of a pain to put on, I was afraid of breaking something, but it went on after a while.
