Runs circles around my dual core Athlon

Pros: Just bought this CPU new online for $80US to replace my older Althlon 64 X2 3800+ 2GHz and this bad boy runs alot better then my older dual core could ever dream of running.
Did I say fast? 14 minutes to install Windows 7 64 bit WOW
Don't listen to the people that say this CPU is no good cause I had this for just over 1 week and so far it works great. Runs very cool at idle about 26 to 29C maxed out 30 to 35C ( the only way I could max this out was to run a stress test with AMD Overdrive)
Speed wise each core runs about the same as the Althlon dual core but the 4 times the cache makes this CPU run alot better.
PS I didn't buy this CPU here.
If you can get this CPU anywhere go for it cause it works great with no problems yet.

Cons: Only con has nothing to do with this CPU there are still alot of software that don't run the best on anything higher then a dual core CPU
Will update the cons if I run into any problems.

Other Thoughts: My motherboard don't have the BIOS update installed to fix the bug since my motherboard is being a pain to update the BIOS but so far no sign of any BSOD errors or any problems with the computer being unstable
One thing my friend has a Intel dual core running at 2.93GHz per core with 3MB cache and this CPU even runs circles around his Intel. His Intel took 20 minutes to install Win 7 64 bit( I timed both CPU's)
His computer boot times: 1 minute 20 seconds
Mine(AMD quad core) 51 seconds

Crosshair nForce 590 AM2

Pros: ...

Cons: ...

Other Thoughts: Just curious is this CPU is compatible with my ASUS Crosshair nForce 590 MCP AM2 motherboard. I am currently looking to upgrade my aging 6000+ CPU. Wanna get a quad without having to upgrade my mobo. I love this crosshair!!

Awsome

Pros: awsome better performance then any athlon x2 CPU made for games when you click in AMD overdrive early in the year version you get 40 percent increase in performance that completey wipes the floor with the 5200+ f3 version I had before. Just click on green button it turns yellow in AMD OVERDRIVE on the top right hand side it takes off like a rocket in CRYSIS and SAGA RALLY And even in some only single core games like NEED For speed Carbon.

Cons: none just make sure you have old version of OVERDive new version does not increase performance of overdrive.

Other Thoughts: well worth the money awsome better qualty graphics then Athlons had. it does get hot up to 50c

Love It

Pros: Handles everything I throw at it, and then some. Combined with 3 gigs Corsair DDR2 800 RAM and Asus M2N-E AM2 mobo (BIOS V. 1304), this is a multitasker's dream. Will take a 10% overclock (2420) at sustained full load without a hitch, rock solid. Ran Vista's performance assessment, did not pass 60% utilization during test resulting in 5.9 CPU score. Also, opening 40 large programs simultaneously is no problem for this CPU. Sure, Int3l has better benchmarks, but for this price, AMD can't be beat.

Cons: Runs in the 45C to 58C range on stock cooler, put in aftermarket 120mm HSF and temps drop to 35C to 45C.

Other Thoughts: During the winter I use a dryer duct to bring in cold air from outside and this thing takes a 12.5% OC at 22C. May try liquid cooling this winter with the radiator outside.

works like a honda

Pros: great for work.. 99% of the time the overall cpu is bellow 50% even with 100 things running (2-3 operating systems at the same time) allso this thing is great for seti@home, you can really see the power

Cons: not so good for gaming... the price is much cheaper now than when i purchased it...

Other Thoughts: buy AMD, they rock

Definitely Worth the $

Pros: Quad core for a triple-core price. My performance pretty much doubled from my old Socket 939 4200+ X2. Definitely good for multi-taskers and the platform itself is upgradeable once the faster chips do come. If AMD can get the clock speeds up, Intel's 'advantage' will disappear completely.

Cons: The TLB bug? Please, only if you're running multiple virtual machines and heavily taxing the L3 cache. Proc definitely does NOT like to overclock, I can get it to 2.4 but it is definitely not stable, tried to go to 2.3 and still not stable so I'm just running at stock. Also runs a little warm and the stock cooler is JUST good enough to keep it about 42 deg idle, but it can push 60 under load! Max thermal for this chip is 70 which is pretty darn close.

Other Thoughts: Built a crossfire capable system with this proc for under $350, a comparable Intel system would've been almost six bills for maybe a 10-20% performance increase, you do the math!

awsome

Pros: just awsome very very good I Bought about two and half months ago very very impressed with this for pictures and video converting and games the game play gets better and better the more I use this I have not overclocked do not need to this is very impressevive very good with xp and Vista 32 Bit Ive run booth on this at different times but I have xp in now

Cons: not a one maybe she could be 200 MHZ More I think the only thing AMD needs to do is make the core freq at 266 MHZ or 333 MHZ then multipliy. then Intel will not be able to keep up

Other Thoughts: I cant believe it only paid 165 in package deal this Quad core lots cheaper then high end dual cores and really perforems very well very stable. AMD if you read this start core off at 266 or 333 MHZ next generation you will rule and sell lots more then you ever could dream of it will be like the p4 HT Days again the Days that where profits for you.and they will be profitable take the pride move up the core its about a year to late all ready. you cant beat a 333 core against a 200 core then multipliy come on AMD change the core.
