AMD Athlon X2 4050e Brisbane Dual-Core 2.1GHz Socket AM2 45W ADH4050IAA5DO Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: For all things considered this is the best CPU for a HTPC, when mated with a 780G motherboard. Intel CPUs idle frequency is 1600MHz (w/ C1E enabled), but this CPU idles @800MHz and sips tiny amount of power. Installed in a 780G board passively and the whole setup consumes ~30W. (from the wall outlet) That's less power consumption than a 35W light bulb!

Cons: Can't think of any

Other Thoughts: This is THE CPU to get for a media PC that needs to be stand-by all the time. You don't want to wait for your PC to finish boot just to watch a recorded TV show or a movie.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Windsor Dual-Core 2.0GHz Socket AM2 65W ADO3800CZBOX Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Bang for the bucks? What bucks? 08/24/2007

This review is from: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Windsor Dual-Core 2.0GHz Socket AM2 65W ADO3800CZBOX Processor

Pros: Only F3 stepping Windsor with 2x512KB L2 cache. F3 Windsors are the best performing AM2 stepping to date, IMO. Default vCore is 1.18V and runs extremely cool. Oh and tell me about overclocking. I'm running this CPU on an mATX board (BIOSTAR 7050) @3.0GHz with just 1.312V. Simply amazing.

Cons: Nada

Other Thoughts: Got this CPU with Call of Juarez game bundle for mere $65. Feel like I almost got this CPU for free. Haha.

OCZ 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2P8004GK
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Purchased this kit for someone else's build. I bought generic 2GB sticks for myself to save cost, but for a system that's not mine, I didn't want to take a chance. This kit turned out to be an excellent choice overall. Was able to run 4-4-4 timings at 800MHz with just 2.0V. Ran Memtest for 12 hours without a single error.

Cons: None at the moment.

Other Thoughts: For people who want to build a 4GB system: 2x2GB is the way to go. (instead of 4x1GB) With 4 sticks, you will end up stressing memory controller a lot more, and there is double the chance of one of the sticks going bad. (Not to mention more heat dissipiation)
