Great Processor for the price

Comments: I am a technician and a recording engineer. I recently replaced the original processor in my recording workstation ( AMD Athlon 64 3400+) with this processor. While recording or mixing down a project, I can easily run 24 tracks of audio with 3 vst effects plugins per track without the processor even breathing hard. My software utilizes multi core processing and this processor really does the job well. Whether it be for VST instrument playback, recording live audio, or just emailing, games, etc. , this processor really has the power to perform very well.

AMD Fan for life after buying this nice dual core

Pros: Fast dual core, upgraded from a Intel Pentium 4 2.93GHz CPU and this CPU blows it out of the water. Even through this CPU was designed for Windows XP I have it on my computer and I have Windows 7 64 bit and this CPU works great. Some programs can max out both cores.
If you are able to get this CPU for your older AM2 motherboard I would go for it you will not be disappointed.
Very low temperatures idle 27 to 32C
Maxed out 36 to 39C
I didn't buy this CPU here I bought it from a local computer store some time ago and this CPU never let me down yet.

Cons: Could have more L2 cache but 512 still is fast.

Other Thoughts: System spec's

Super cool!

Pros: Amazing speed for the price. Runs extremely cool compared to a Pentium D 930.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Can't beat it for the price, and since I'm only gaming, I don't need super overclockable processors or high end items.
