This review is from: AMD Phenom II X3 720 2.8GHz Socket AM3 95W Triple-Core Black Processor HDZ720WFGIBOX
Pros: Excellent value, especially of the fourth core can be unlocked. I was able to unlock the fourth core with zero problems on a Gigabyte GA-MA790GPT-UD3H motherboard. I've been running it with 4 cores at 3.2 GHz for two weeks now with no stability problems.
Cons: Not as fast as the core i5/i7 from Intel, but plenty fast for most users.
Included heatsink/fan was pretty cummy looking (small, aluminum only). I re-used the heatsink/fan from my previous build, which was a better copper heatpipe design that came with an Opteron 180 chip.
Other Thoughts: All in all, a great value. If you want to overclock, I'd suggest ordering a separate heatsink/fan with a better design.READ FULL REVIEW
