5 out of 5 eggsamd perfection

Pros: great value, great price vs. performance

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: why mess with intel??? if intel wins and amd goes out of business, you can expect intel cpus to go up in price about 100%, dont believe me?? do you want to risk the chance that i may be right?

5 out of 5 eggsUnbelievable

Pros: Unbelievable, I have never had a CPU that was so durable. I managed to pull this bad boy out with the Heat sink, as I am sure all of you have done at least once. My little bro knocked the heat sink (CPU still attached) off the table right on the CPU. Bent about 30-40 pins.... sad face... I bent the pins back and reinstalled, with a new heat sink. Runs just as good as ever, didnt loose any speed. LOVE THIS PROCESSOR

Cons: none at all... well it used to run a little hot (before the new heat sink), but what AMD doesnt....

Other Thoughts: In a gaming comp with 4 Gb ram, 512 graphics, all the fun stuff. Runs everything, love this little processor. I have built around 10 comps all running AMD, never had one fail!

5 out of 5 eggsSpeedy Proc

Pros: I can say this processor is quick espically coming from a 2800+ Barton core. From the time I press my power button my desktop loads under 15 seconds. It runs games smoothly as well. I can run Oblivion maxed out @ 1440X900 and it runs without a hitch. I plan to overclock it after I let it burn in. What I'm the most happy with is how cool it runs. @ idle 25C under load I have seen it no higher than 32C Most of the time it stays @ 30C. My case also has good air flow it runs 25C to 30C. This proc is a great buy.

Cons: none solid product from AMD

Other Thoughts: My system Abit AX78 4600+ X2 7600GT 1GB of Crucial 667 MHZ Ram. 160GB Seagate SATA II Newegg is the only place to by parts. No other supplier compairs.

5 out of 5 eggspretty fast

Pros: Low on funds so I went for the price point, running an ECS A770M-A mobo and these two low cost items run great!

Cons: Not the fastest processor but still pretty fast for the $$$$.

5 out of 5 eggsFast & Cool Running

Pros: Retail package works great. Using with MSI mobo and this chip is typical AMD...heat sink / fan mounts very easy. I've set up the "cool & quiet" feature and this CPU runs very cool (~39 deg. C) while running multiple graphic programs. Also very quiet.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've purchased approx. 20 AMD Retail Box CPU's in the past 12 months and have not had one failure, or bad performer.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD 4600+

Pros: Great processor - fast and inexpensive. I've used to build systems with Intel because I heard AMD CPU's had a heat problem. Not any more. AMD is typically less expensive and faster and in the 6 machines I've build in the last few months they all outperform their equivalent Intel CPU's. Have yet to see a heat problem. And as usual Newegg is the best!! I only get my parts from them, don't waste your time with any other supplier.

Cons: None that I can find!

5 out of 5 eggsNice..Responsive

Pros: Great response times. Benchmarks are beautiful, even at stock numbers for this low of a clock speed. Definitely a noticeable difference from the Brisbane, but at a slight temp disadvantage. Great bargain gaming CPU

Cons: Only one I'd say is get the box for the warranty and chuck the heatsink into the box. Get something COPPER. Idles at around 37-39, which is great, but when I start putting it under heavy load (video encoding, especially), I've seen spikes of 50+ to even 60.

Other Thoughts: notta

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance at a low price

Pros: First time I've used a AMD processor in a system. It seems to work really well, no issues at all. Checking out Tom's Hardware this processor gives good bang for the buck.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Put this in a new system with a Biostar MoBo running Vista 64 bit. Processor is great, Vista 64 bit isn't so great.
