AMD's Sempron 140 is a great choice for HTPCs and other applications where low noise and low heat are major factors. This would also be a great choice for remote systems used to control video walls. You could also use it for building a dedicated print server system.

This 2.7GHz processor only draws 45W of power and still has all the features that make AMD processors great. The on-chip memory controller and HyperTransport technology combine for a 17.0GB/s processor to system bandwidth. It also comes with Cool'n'Quiet technology to increase power efficiency even further.

Great

Pros: Process was priced very aggressive for the performance you get.
I like many unlocked this to an Athlon II.

Cons: Heat sink is a little wimpy, but will work.

CPU fan is starting to die, currently at 2.5 yrs of service.

Other Thoughts: I had purchased this for a customer upgrading from a Pentium 4. All parts included only costs $200 and it unlocked to an Athlon II

This system has been in service sense Feb 2011 and the included cpu fan is starting to die

Great for unRAID

Pros: I'm using this in an unRAID Home Media Server. It works for what I need it to, which isn't very processor intensive at all. I cannot comment on its ability to handle a full blown Windows Installation.

I wanted it for it's low power consumption since the server is on 24/7 and I need as much power as possible for all the HDD's the system has to support.

Cons: None.

Good Bang for Little Buck

Pros: Ran windows XP just fine. It now runs my Windows 7 64bit OS slower but thats what I expected. I have mine overclocked at 3.3 Ghz using my motherboards BIOS. Planning on replacing it soon with one of the Phenoms.

Cons: It isn't the best at running SC2. I only get an average of 6 frames a second with this. Another note when OCing, OC slowly.

Other Thoughts: Probably another factor for the low FPS is my Video Chip, it is onboard my motherboard, so don't dock that if your going to buy this.

2 for 2

Comments: Someone else mentioned buying 5 of these and 5 matching motherboards and only one unlocked then blamed it on the other 4 mainboards for not unlocking. If the boards support unlocking then they will always unlock an unlockable CPU. Problem is that not all of these chips are unlockable some of them actually have a bad second core.

I've had numerous athlon II's unlock and its fun when they do, a little something for nothing.
