This review is from: AMD Sempron 140 Sargas Single-Core 2.7 GHz Socket AM3 45W SDX140HBGQBOX Processor
-Unlocks to a dual core
-Good overclockability (I got to 3.37ghz at 1.3v) Could go further with 1.5v.
Cons: noneREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: XIGMATEK HDT-S1283 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler I5 775 AMD compatible
-43c idle temps (cool and quiet disabled)
-48c load temps (c&q disabled)
Cons: -Large, but that's to be expected
-Residue from the sticker on the copper heatpipes that I had to wipe off.
Other Thoughts: A load temp of 48c surprised me completely. I'm going to start overclocking it soon. This cooler is definitely worth it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Runs relatively cool(depends on cooling)
-Runs crysis like a champ
-Alright overclockabily (Up to 3.1-ish ghz on stock cooling and with a 790GX motherboard-- for the Advanced Clock Calibration)
Cons: -Can run a bit hot on stock cooling (without cool and quiet, it would idle at 48 degrees celsius.) I have two 120mm case fans, so case air flow wasn't the problem. The thermal grease (arctic silver 5) probably hasn't set in yet.
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the purchase. Although, now that you can purchase a Phenom II X3 720 BE and enable a fourth core (could be unstable, though-- was turned off for a reason) for the same price as this processor, it's value is a bit diminished. For those who want to stay on the safe side, get this processor and a better cpu cooler.READ FULL REVIEW
