5 out of 5 eggsWow - that was cool...

Pros: Unbelievable (typo?) price, thanks NewEgg - low power consumption & heat, consequently long battery life, FAST CPU!

Cons: No winning Lotto or Mega Millions numbers in package...

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from Sempron 1600 to this CPU in a typically doggish Compaq M2000. This is not the same machine, I am floored. Acts like a fast Core2 Duo running at the same speed (2.0 GHz). Did a few "races" against a Gateway MT 6705 with a Core2 Duo upgrade from 1.6 to 2.0 as well. That machine even runs DDR2 as opposed the DDR1 used here. Still, runs neck and neck on all apps tested (opening Photoshop CS3, rendering filters etc - Flash CS3 also. This will make a dandy "emergency website updater while I am on vacation" laptop now. It never was able to do that before. This was the best upgrade I could possibly have imagined (coupled with the 2 GB of GSKILL DDR, and the WD Scorpion HD). Anyone considering updationg one of these will be pleasantly surprised. AMD has a winner here - hope they weather the stock market and keepup the good work.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in Presario V2000Z

Pros: This is a great update for my low end-presario. Taking apart the notebook was not difficult - but you must go slow and be careful. The biggest trick to taking it apart is the hidden plastic clip at the center near the screen latch. A small press inward with a tiny screwdriver will release it.

I actually had to take the notebook apart twice.....I installed the new processor along with a some Arctic Silver and after putting it back together I noticed the fan wasn't running...it was oddly quiet...so I took it apart to make sure I didn't forget to plug the fan in. Sure enough, when it booted the fan turned on but then stayed off for a long time. It only runs now when I watch movies, encode video, etc..

I had the ML-37 before and so there haven't been noticable performance improvements, but for temperature and power alone it's been great. I'm gonna put the now spare ML in another Presario that has a Semperon.

I think my specific model was a Presario CTO 2603

Cons: You have to take out like fifteen screws just to get the base of the laptop off take out the memory and harddisk and risk breaking an internal plastic clip.

Other Thoughts: It took about 30 minutes from start to finish.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Replacement for Sempron

Pros: Works as a good replacement for Sempron in Compaq V2555us.

Cons: Runs a little warmer than the Sempron for some reason, around 56 C.

5 out of 5 eggsROKIN' HARD

Pros: AWSOME UPGRADE FORM MY OLD 1.6GHZ TURION. POPED IT IN AND IT'S A GO. THE AMD TURION SOFTWARE DOES WORK GOOD FOR MOBILITY USE. MUCH FASTER AND RUNS WAY COOLER. NO PROPLEMS AT ALL.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: COMPAQ PRESARIO V2312US. IF YOU HAVE THIS MODEL IT WILL WORK FLAWLESSLY.

4 out of 5 eggsUse laptop 4 low power

Pros: Inexpensive, low power, good performance. 64-bit supported.

Cons: Single mem channel. I should have just used a cheap loptop for always on system. DDR memory is 2x DDR2 cost.

Other Thoughts: Use a notebook for always on system. Dual core closeouts are $450 WITH os license and display. Use Cardbus/Express bus SATA card and gigE USB2 adaptor for fileserver. 35w for notebook AND display. 60w for Asrock MB+cpu alone. Unless you need higher graphics performance of 6100, go with cheap notebook.

MSI adapter works well if you strip it of thermal pad and surround. Use good paste because there are 2 mating surfaces and hard to get much below 38c. 48c with the MSI used stock.

5 out of 5 eggsGood desktop CPU

Pros: Very low power. Works in desktops. Pays back for itself in power bills quite quickly over a conventional desktop. 1 watt costs $1/year in Massachusetts. Typical desktops are 100-300W. My Turion desktop (Seasonic PSU+ASRock K8NF6G motherboard+Seagate 200GB HD+Gigabyte G-Power fan+512MB RAM) uses 40W idle (35W with HD spun down), and maybe 70W peak, so I save about $160/year with my 24/7 living room machine over a high-power machine.

Cons: Need to be aware of compatibility issues with motherboards (Google around a bit -- MSI and DFI both officially support the Turion, and my ASRock also supports it, but unadvertised). Many motherboards either will not support it, or will not support the lower voltage modes. Heat sink compatibility issues also exist -- it is thinner than a normal desktop CPU, so many clips will not be tight enough, and it doesn't have a heat spreader or heat sink supports, so it is possible to damage the chip with a heat sink (easier to do so than on the original Athlon, which also showed the raw chip, but had 4 supports around the chip). MSI Mobile Pad makes it just like a desktop CPU, though, cheap.

Other Thoughts: Works natively with the ASRock K8NF6G-VSTA motherboard, also sold by Newegg (as well as most MSI and DFI motherboards). The ASRock detects it natively, and supports all P-states through Cool-n-Quiet (800MHz/0.9V-2GHZ/1.25V), although it doesn't support the C-states (2-3W deep sleep state when the CPU is idle). If you buy this for use in a desktop, you should also order an MSI Mobile Pad. That is a heat spreader that makes the CPU compatible with stock Sempron 64/Athlon 64 heat sinks. It is marketed for preventing damage to the CPU, which is possible but unlikely. The real problem is that the CPU without heat spreader is thinner than a desktop CPU, so your heat sink clip might not be tight enough (a fair amount of pressure is needed to prevent the heat sink from moving, and to ensure a good thermal contact). I had that problem, and had to jury-rig a solution, since I didn't want to wait for the MSI pad to ship.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for Acer

Pros: I have an Acer 3004WLCI and this processor worked great after I installed it. I did not have to reinstall the OS either. It's been installed 5 months now, I upgraded the memory to 2Ghz and installed Vista about a month ago.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsTeeravuss

Pros: Teeravuss your AMD SEMPRON 3100+ 1.8GHZ you are using is a socket 754 meaning it should be compatible with this processor.

Cons: IDK

Other Thoughts: hope this helps.

5 out of 5 eggsFast Fast Fast!!

Pros: For an inexpensive mobile processor this thing is FAST!! And of course AMD rocks, always a good choice!!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: These are also greate for MiniATX systems based on PGA754, lower heat disipation and power consumption than a desktop processor. Good for small firewall boxes! (Like IPCop)
