5 out of 5 eggs Great CPU but not officialy supported 03/31/2009

This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5050e Brisbane Dual-Core 2.6GHz Socket AM2 45W Processor ADH5050DOBOX

Pros:

CPU is fast and runs cool with stock fan. The fan is silent and temp has been between 29 and 32 C. Installed in Gigabyte GA-MA78GPM-UD2H motherboard. Highly recommend for a low power low heat producing system.
I definitely recommend and will buy again.

Cons:

I called both AMD and Gigabyte when I could not get my system to boot. Gigabyte stated they do not support this processor and AMD stated that it is possible that current bios might not support this processor. The processor was not the problem.

Other Thoughts:

Fortunately for me another reviewer of the Gigabyte MB mentioned the need for an 8 pin power cable necessary for the MB to boot. Put the CPU back in and it worked perfectly.
