Great Product that despite its 7 year age, is still with me today.

Pros: -Overclocks easy
-Reliable
-Fast for its time

Cons: -Runs Hot
-Lots of power draw

Other Thoughts: I have my Phenom in a dedicated multimedia computer but it still runs games when the Lan party need arises.

9850 Beast.

Pros: I bought this CPU in 2010 and oh how well did she handle everything. Still handles herself like a True AMD. The games Ive played on this and she handles very well

Battlefield: Bad Company 2
Battlefield 3
World of Warcraft (every expansion including MoP)
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
The list keeps going but you get the idea.

Cons: The newer processor heavy games (Arma 2 and 3,Total War: Rome 2 etc) will bog it down,badly. Ive played several hundred hours of DayZ on this processor with no real problems. (The only time I would have problems is if the server I was on had more then 20+ or a lot of custom bases/addon's etc).

Other Thoughts: I know shes out of date,but im honestly considering buying a board and throwing this in it to stream Netflix on my big screen in the living room.

This is one rock-solid beast.

Pros: It's been more than 5 years and I'm still rocking this chip! I was considering replacing it but then installed an SSD....long story short, I'm still using it!

I leave my machine on all day every day and this CPU is still plowing away 5 years later. The only changes I've made are liquid cooling...and than was only a year ago! I'm trying to figure out what to do with the machine I have this chip in because it's still far too capable to throw out or donate. Currently using it as DHCP/domain/file server in my home. Still on 24/7 and still rock solid!

Cons: Nada!

Other Thoughts: I'm sure these things are dirt cheap now. If you need a plenty fast and solid budget machine then you should give this one a shot :)

Good CPU

Pros: Pros
Great CPU for Gaming
Great Overclocking. At 3.3GHZ though Bios and Stable. Idle temp 30-33C. Full Load 48-55C.

Cons: Had some slight Issues Overclocking at first(BSOD) but that was just User Error. Make sure you know what your doing.

Other Thoughts: This is a Very Nice CPU that I just got with this New computer I just bought. I can play any Game out right now without a Hitch. Ran Prime95 for 8Hours no Errors or anything. Cools nicely.

Still great bang for your buck

Pros: Solid processor for the price, very competent overclocker with sb750 3.2 ghz with slight volt bump, runs everything I throw at it without a hiccup

Cons: Phenom 2's are faster and higher ocers, Am3 isn't too much more expensive.

Other Thoughts: This processor in my experience overclocks quite well 3.0 ghz with no voltage change, can hit 3.4 or higher with amd overdrive though through bios I have it stable at 1.36 volts at 3.2ghz. Get a quality 790gx board with this and you have a low cost powerful rig waiting to happen.
