One of AMD's best chips!!

Pros: 6 true cores, easy to overclock if you have the right settings, etc., was a gosh darn good price when it came out as opposed to "team blue" at the time. It never failed, only a couple things around it did lol.

Cons: NADA ONE!

Other Thoughts: I'm upgrading my 7 year old system (it turned 7 on Jan. 17th this year) so i'm passing this chip along to a friend that badly needs the gear I have. I just got the Ryzen 7 CPU today and when i get the rest, there will be no looking back. The Phenom II has been a work horse for the video editing/re-encoding I've done all these years now, so it'll be sorta sad but freaking awesome to see what ol' Ryzen's got under the hood. I hope to read this review in 10 years and see where Ryzen is at that time. I got this chip up to 3.4 or 3.6 with no problems so i left it there and let her rip. It's been water-cooled for a few years now as well. Never got over 100 (F). If you need a decent 6 core CPU and can find this one for a good price, jump on it.

Going strong after 7 years!!! I think I can get it to double digits.....

Pros: Longevity. How many setups can last the test of time. 7 years for a setup has far exceeded expectations. I built this right after April 2010 when this came out. I went high end with the processor for the time and have always been a fan of AMD from a cost standpoint. I paired this up with an SSD boot drive, Gigabyte GA-790FXTA-UD5 board, Scythe Cooler (which was a must), a modest Radeon 5700, 16gb Ram, and a Corsair PSU. Windows 10 is smooth as butter. I am not much of a gamer, but would consider myself a power user with everything else I do with it.

This bad boy is still running strong and I feel it could go another 3 years at this point. I am about to build another system with a RYZEN chip, but I am only doing that because my mother needs a new computer. So rather than build her one, I am going to build myself a new one and give her this 7 year old beast. She is more of a facebook, pay bills, and surf type. This system will more than meet her needs and will hopefully last another several years.

Cons: It has outlived the technology that supports it so no replacing board or chip. Windows 10 will probably be the last OS it will ever see. If another OS comes out, drivers will become more of an issue - but none at this point.

Other Thoughts: I have been building PCs since I was in high school more than 20 years ago. With the pace of technology during that stretch, I had several builds. Never in a million years did I imagine that I would be sitting her typing this from a 7 year old system and still my primary computer. It pays to go premium on the chip and use a top notch cooler to help stand the test of time. RYZEN here I come.

Going strong after 6 years...

Pros: This chip is still able to handle everything that I throw at it with ease.

Cons: -None

Other Thoughts: There is no real need to retire this chip anytime soon, however, I will probably need to upgrade it in a year or two since I have had a few issues with my MOBO, and I figure if I have to replace the motherboard, might as well upgrade CPU and RAM as well. That will be a sad day, but this will still be a great media server / spare pc for the house.

Amazing product, 5+ years with zero issues

Pros: -Great product
-Great relative price
-No processing lag in my multitasking
-longevity

Cons: -none

Other Thoughts: I cannot recommend this processor enough if you're lucky enough to find one. This is a great processor even 5 years down the road for me, and I've yet to encounter a game or program that can push it to it's limits, even when I've been at my heaviest multitasking (3 games running at once, EVE Online, WoW, and Minecraft; streaming my EVE Online session at the same time, browsing the web, talking on TeamSpeak, and browsing youtube a bit. Not one bit of stutter or lag.)

Excellent processor

Pros: I've had this since 2010 and it has been stout since. Not one hiccup in 5 years, I am beyond impressed.

Cons: nothing.

Running and Handles Everything

Pros: I have had no issues.

I have lightly overclocked the Cores and will go further now that I have a liquid cooling system in place.

Any of the new games I played on it run smoothly. Sometimes I cannot run max quality, but that is a video card issue and not a CPU issue.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Would probably do a 3rd AMD build as it is great performance for the cost. Couldn't be happier.

Just A Champ

Pros: Bang for the buck indeed. When I purchased this chip, I didn't have the extra funds to buy an aftermarket cooler, as previously noted here, this sucker runs hot on stock cooling even at stock clocks. Regardless, I haven't noticed (forgot in fact) until recently when I upgraded my video card to a GTX 970, and tried to find the bottleneck. Yep, I've been running it on the stock cooler at stock speeds all these years and it's been ahead of my video cards. Time to buy an aftermarket cooler and push up the clock on this beauty. Looking forward to Star Wars Battlefront and Fallout 4 on it! I'm going to get at least five years total of high performance out of this chip, more likely 7 or 8, all for under 2 bones. Four years later, and still very, very pleased with this purchase.

Cons: Really none, some say the stock cooler, but it functions perfectly at stock speeds for years playing the most demanding games. What do you really want?
