Throw another day’s work on the "done" pile. The Athlon 64 X2 5400 Brisbane makes it easy. The dual cores run at a blistering pace of 2.8GHz and have 1MB of L2 cache each. This advanced processor is part of the AMD64 family and as such it is fully compatible with today's 32-bit software and is ready to handle the ever increasing number of 64-bit programs out there.

More oomph for less power, that's the promise of Cool'n'Quiet technology. This feature allows the OS to slow the processor down when full speed isn't necessary. That reduces your system's power demand and can save you money. The more immediate benefit is that less power means less heat, so your system runs cooler and that will let it last longer. It also means the fans will slow down and make less noise.

great processor, odd to not include stock fan

Pros: Fast, stable

Cons: doesn't come with heatsink/fan, but there is a large empty space in the box where the heatsink/fan is supposed to go.

Other Thoughts: It does say it in the description that there is no cooling device included, but I didn't even think to look at that because I've never seen a retail processor without its stock heatsink/fan. Managed to pick up a Rosewill heatsink/fan for about 10 bucks and free shipping... so it wasn't too bad. However, at 10 dollars more, you might be able to get a more powerful processor that comes with its heatsink/fan.

Great CPU for a budget system

Pros: I got this for the price and previous reviews and I was not disappointed. My computer is working way faster than I expected and I haven't tried to overclock this yet. Pretty sturdy, considering the accident that caused 6-10 pins that got bent on it. After bending it back, it works as if it never happened.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: AMD AM2 790X ATX Mobo
4 Gb RAM
GeForce 9600 GT

AMD athlon 64x40 5400

Pros: Pretty fast and stable. This is for upgrading my old AMD sempron. It works out quite good. The speed is increased noticeably. Over all very good with the bargain deal.

Cons: none

Awesome value

Pros: So much more faster than my Phenom X3 (2.3Ghz). For most apps I use, it seems I benefit much more from having 2 faster cores than 3 slower cores, and I mean the difference is night and day.

Haven't messed with overclocking, except for in the ASRock Mobo BIOS, I just selected something like "Easy Overclock" ? (can't remember), and set that to OC 10%.

Price point creates amazing value for this chip.

Cons: None so far.... Actually, I forgot that the Black Edition doesn't include a fan and heatsink (my fault, although NewEgg would probably get more business if they prominently displayed a reminder about this to customers), and I wanted to build the computer ASAP, so I went to the brick and mortar store and shelled out almost $40 bucks for a copper HS/fan that only has 3 pins (and makes more noise than I expected), when I could've just bought the AMD stock version off E*b*a
*y for 20bucks/free shipping....

In other words, make arrangements to buy a heatsink/fan if you're getting a black edition processor.

Other Thoughts: Great value!

Descent

Pros: this is a great cpu for the budget builder. it overclocks to 3.6 stable with a small bump with the voltage , but only stable @ 3.2 ghz . handles gaming fairly desent with a 4870 gpu, if your not wanting to dump a lot of money in a rig waiting for those sweet 32nm's to come out... this is the ticket.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: only wish it had more cache

Good Value

Pros: Great for the price, huge upgrade over my old Pentium 4 system. Runs cool at stock speeds on cheap Rosewill heatsink/fan. It's no quad core, but it does what I need it to do very well.

Cons: Doesn't come with cooling, but that was my own fault for missing that! Still a great product.

Other Thoughts: I'm currently overclocking to 3.2GHz on the cheap cooling mentioned above and it runs 65-67 degrees under constant load. I'd suggest dropping more than $15 and getting a somewhat decent CPU cooler if you want to achieve a higher overclock.
