Super Deal! Athlon II X3 455 RANA Triple Core 3.3 GHz Socket AM3 Processor

Pros: Great Buy! Processor Unlocked to "Phenom II X4 B55" @ 3.3 GHz. Although, there really is no such Beast, as the B55 is rated to run at 3.2 GHz. I figure that the original die was produced as a Phenom II X4 B55, but the onboard L3 Cache on the CPU die did not meet testing requirements, so they disabled the Onboard L3 cache and relabeled it as a X3 RANA core and up'd it to 3.3 GHz.
Strangely enough, CPU-Z identifies it as a Phenom II X4 B55, however as a "PROPUS" Core (Athlon II X4). But, there is no X4 PROPUS Core that runs at 3.3 GHz, only 3.2 GHz!?

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Note: CPU-Z also identifies the PWR Requirements of this CPU (Unlocked) as 126.5W TDP! No issues with the GIGA MOBO that I am running on, with 1600MHz DDR3.

3 Cores? Not if you have CORE UNLOCKER!

Pros: "AMD Phenom II X4 B55 Processor, 3300 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)" is what windows see's. . . . . . .
When you use Core Unlocker it turns this lil 95w processor into a wapping 135w 4 core processing beast! and can be OC'd up to 4.2GHZ! water cooled is a must!

Cons: ONLY CON IS THEY ARE NO LONGER SELLING THIS BEAST!!!

Other Thoughts: scored a 7.3 on windows index when unlocked 4.6 when not unlocked.

I bought it for 74.99 best buy so far processor wise... I have a AMD Athlon II x4 3.0GHZ processor I have yet to install just because this thing is so beast! Only thing is I upgraded to a AMD HD 6990 and the thing IS A BEAST! and I wounder how the other processor will do being made to be a quad core CPU.
