5 out of 5 eggs What's not to like: power processor on the cheap! 07/19/2013

This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDZ965FBGMBOX Processor

Pros:

What's not to like. It's fast and powerful and cheap. Did I say cheap? This is really a heck of a deal!

Cons:

It's not faster or cheaper?

Other Thoughts:

I got this for a budget build in a [very cool] budget case with budget ram and budget fans and budget hard drive and.... Well, you get the picture. But here's the thing: if you just get everything on Shell Shocker, its shocking how little it costs to put together one fantastic computer. The 965 Black is a great component of that kind of system.

By the way, I have an aftermarket cooler installed (forget what) to keep the temperatures down and am using a 95W CPU motherboard. There was some ambiguity in the online boards about what this CPU needed so that, at any rate, is how I'm managing the situation.
