4 out of 5 eggsMeh

Pros: Cheap. Can do some decent gaming at 720p. Overall pretty snappy when paired with the right hardware.

Cons: Not a dual core. It's 1 core with 1 thread and it will max out very easily. Hits 100% cpu just by opening chrome with 8 extensions installed. This type of false advertising really needs to be punishable.
Will not run my memory at any higher speeds than 1866mhz which is fine gaming wise but will slow down file transfers/copying if thats what youre truly after with this.

Other Thoughts: Consider this processor media viewing/office use processor with a slight potential for gaming if literally all of your other hardware is good. I'm running this on an ASUS Crossblade Ranger mobo and whoever said theyre playing skyrim on max settings @ 720 with good framerates is wrong lol. (they must not have touched view distances shadows aa etc) My old phenom 2 6 core paired with the exact same hardware (besides motherboard) ran skyrim WAY smoother @ 720p compared to this cpu. This cpu can get 50-60 frames in alien isolation with max settings but will drop easily to below 30 during certain scenarios. Runs black ops 2 pretty well. Runs advanced warfare horribly lol (constant lock ups). Running a 1080p video works well. counter strike go is fine.

5 out of 5 eggsRead up on CPU Cores vs. Dies vs. Logical Processors

Pros: Price vs. Performance. Most games are still more CPU speed dependent than core dependent, so more clock is more important than more cores.

Cons: No integrated GPU for flexibility or possible offloads, though this does save on CPU heat loss for OC. It's not going to win the next DARPA project price for supercomputing by itself.

Other Thoughts: The reviewer that states this is a single core using hyperthreading needs to read up on his CPU technology a bit better. Not only is that an Intel trick rather than an AMD trick, this cpu is a dual core, single die design with two processors located in the same die envelope. Intel uses a design that allows two pathways for data creating two logical cores for the OS per CPU, not AMD which uses single path in all of their designs (so far). Don't bash if you don't know what you're talking about. This is a real dual core chip, not a single core masquerading as dual through hyperthreading (not that intel does that either).

5 out of 5 eggsbest dual core

Pros: For the the price you can't get much better! Great for a budget gaming computer!
I play Skyrim and AC4 on the highest settings with no lag at all.

Cons: Only a dual core

Other Thoughts: I've had this for about a year and it's worked perfectly with no problems. I Am getting ready to upgrade to an 8 core so before I stop using this one I decided to do some over clocking. So far I've over clocked it to 4.5 ghz on the stock cooler and fan with no problems at all

2 out of 5 eggsLogical Processor != Core

Pros: Don't get me wrong, it's nice.
It works great, and I have had no problems (yet) with it;
I just wish I had done a tad more research instead of seeing a really cheap 4ghz dual and taking it at face value.

Cons: It lists it as dual core, but there are not 2 cores in this.

It is a logical processor (1 core trying to be a dual core that took a hit to performance and efficiency).

You can do the research of pro/con on logical processing / HT; I won't list it all here,
but I think listing this as a dual core should be considered false advertising.
I would have complained but I already have the darn thing installed on my motherboard with the heatsink fan and everything,
and I don't want to have to open it all back up and wait for a new cpu.

So learn from my mistake please!

5 out of 5 eggsVery quick for the price!

Pros: 4.2GHz turbo! (4GHz sustained)
Excellent single-thread (read: most software) performance.
Quiet OEM cooler; I can barely hear it.

Cons: Dual core; mediocre multi-thread performance.

Other Thoughts: So much faster than my old Pentium D it's unbelievably, even with only a modest clock bump. (4.2Ghz vs 3.4Ghz ~24%).
No GPU to add heat, use up die area, and add expense to the chip for dedicated GPU builds.
Personally, I think if you're going to code something highly multi-threaded (more than 2-4 cores) you're better off using GPGPU, so the dual core isn't a dealbreaker. I should also note this has a higher clock speed than the 750K.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome cpu. designed for gaming

Pros: i love this cpu. i got it for a budget gaming pc and it runs great. low watttage means less heat and since it requires a descrete gpu, its less stress on the cpu. i like it i play skyrim on 60 fps with this cpu.

Cons: none. i like it

Other Thoughts: 4.0 is rather unnecessary for a dual core but its still awesome. for the lawls

5 out of 5 eggsNice Little Processor

Pros: Fast cores, at 4.0ghz. ive overclocked it to 4.3ghz on the stock cooler with no problems. this will get the job done for you.

Cons: Only Dual core, AMD dose not excel at single core performance. but in multi core they do fine so just keep that in mind. but for a budget its not bad. the stock cooler dose leave some to be desired but it has no issue cooling this little processor. anything bigger though like the amd athlon x4 750k you need a better cooler.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome but bottlenecks

Pros: Very fast CPU for the price. I can play Diablo 3 and League of Legends with out any hic-ups.

Cons: But in saying that, there is a bottle necking issue. I like to keep two games up at once or have internet browsers up for quick information about the games I am playing. I get less FPS and the game tends to lag. But when I close out of the other programs the game runs fine.

Other Thoughts: It is a good CPU for the price, but if you are looking at doing multiple tasks while playing games, think about getting a Quad core for a little more money.

Cons: never had any problem with AMD

4 out of 5 eggsVery Decent Processor

Pros: Operates at 4 GHz
It gets the job done with my games.

Cons: It runs fairly warm on the stock cooler and I dont have money for an aftermarket cooler but my case fans are doing a good job keeping my system cool while playing games

Also I have been running into Bottleneck issues but of course it is obvious that the processor is a Dual Core and not a Quad Core :-(

Other Thoughts: I hope to see a performance improvement once my new Kingston HyperX Blu 8 GB DDR3 PC1600 kit gets here.
