AMD Phenom II X4 970 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.5GHz Socket AM3 125W Desktop Processor HDZ970FBGMBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: *Compatible with an AM2+ socket
*Low cost for high performance.
*Overclocking is a breeze with unlocked multipliers

Cons: *Not a six core

Other Thoughts: I bought this as an upgrade for my old rig which was running a 1st gen Phenom x4, this is a huge upgrade. This core will take anything you can throw at it. I have since stopped using that rig and have built a new one with a six core. If you are looking to upgrade an older PC and your mother board has an AM2+ (or newer) socket on it, this processor will breath new life into it, and then some. You will need to update your bios for it to function properly(do it before you install the chip if you are on AM2+)

AMD Phenom II X6 1100T Black Edition Thuban 6-Core 3.3GHz, 3.7GHz Turbo Socket AM3 125W Desktop Processor HDE00ZFBGRBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *Hassle-free install
*Runs fast at factory clock levels
*Easy to OC with AMD Overdrive
*Competes with the 6 core I-7 chips at a Fraction of the price.

Cons: *The stock Heatsink will need replaced if you plan to overclock. If you do not plan to OC, then it is more than adequate.
*Doesn't do my laundry for me or cook dinner. :P

Other Thoughts: This is more than enough processing power to run in a gaming rig, which is what I built it for. The Intel I7 is superior with things like Computer-Aided Design(CAD) or Video rendering. If you are business doing those things, then perhaps you and afford to pay $1000 for a chip. If you want to have a good rig for gaming go with an AMD Phenom x4 or x6. It even renders rather faster too.
The Question you need to ask yourself is pay $200 or pay $1000

  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: *It was cheap
*Works great
*Low noise (when reading or burning) Can't even tell it is running

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The packing was a bit odd, well off-putting. The drive and the driver disk were wrapped together in bubble wrap inside the shipping box, no factory box. That being said it was not damaged in any way and it was not bouncing around in the box.
