AMD Phenom II X2 555 Black Edition Callisto Dual-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 80W HDZ555WFGMBOX Desktop Processor - C3 Revision
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This thing blows my old 2800 Barton away. I was due for an upgrade, but didn't really think I needed a Quad core. I tried unlocking it just for grins, but had issues with my sound when it was running on all 4 cores. OC'd it to 3400 with no other changes and it is running great with temps staying around 30C.

Cons: Nope.

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 1-Pack for System Builders
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: No problem with the OEM install on a clean drive. Was up and running within an hour. Major improvement over Vista, which was pretty much worthless. I didn't have any driver issues with the 64-bit version either.

Cons: None yet.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Mobo 03/07/2010

This review is from: ASUS M4A785TD-V EVO AM3 AMD 785G HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: This thing is a major upgrade with all the overclocking potential. It took just a few minutes to unlock my 555BE to see if the 4 cores would run. Plenty of SADA connectors and the board is laid out well.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: If you want to do any overclocking at all this board should be able to handle all but the extreme enthusiast. But they wouldn't be looking at this level of board anyway.
