5 out of 5 eggs Still going strong after 10 years! 03/29/2014

This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 2800+ ClawHammer Single-Core 1.8GHz Socket 754 Processor ADA2800BOX

Pros:

I've had this processor in an old computer for 10 years (2004) now and it's still running well. Never had any problems along the way, either!

Cons:

None

Other Thoughts:

I loaded Windows 7 and Linux Mint 16. Windows 7 SP1 ran okay but you can definitely see some trouble with performance and Mint 16 was next to unusable.
Back in 2010, I loaded Ubuntu 9.04 and it ran well.

So, while this chip is showing its age, it aged well. I'm currently running XP on it and don't have a use for it at this juncture, but it may come in handy in the future.

Running it with:
MSI K8T NEO-FSR (no bad caps)
1 GB Kingston ValueRAM
ATI Radeon 9000
2 Maxtor 40 GB IDE HDDs
300W Starlogic PSU

Everything still runs like new! Currently running an AMD FX-8350 chip in my current PC. Looking forward to another 10 years, AMD!
