great single core 12/11/2011 9:56:17 PM

Pros: decently high clock speed, not much heat, stable

Cons: only single core

Overall Review: i got one from a friend that had his motherboard die (it was a Compaq system) so i got it to make a system with. i put it in a foxconn 740g mobo w/2x1gb wintec ampx ram and i am running ubuntu 10.10 64bit on it. it runs very well for a basic internet/music machine. i havent ran any games on it, other than linux games, but everything i have ran on it runs very well. in fact it runs basic internet/media apps as fast or faster then my phenom x4 9650 on windows7 gaming rig!

also installed are wd caviar black 750gb hdd, 500w ocz psu, and a HIS 4670 1gb pci-e graphics card. i am very satisfied with this cpu and if they made a black edition single core cpu based on todays manufacturing technology i would buy one for sure...... just to see how high i could clock it.

Go with Intel 2/29/2008 6:54:41 PM

Pros: While the processor lasted in my system, I would have rated it at least a 4, maybe even a 5. It is speedy, handled photo editing well and even did the video editing without problems. After 1.5 years, it just up and died. I didn't have any fancy overclocking going on and the temps never exceeded 41°C.

Cons: Died without warning after 1.5 years. I still have a Dell with an Intel running after 5 years of almost continuous use. RMA by AMD is going to take about 2 weeks if they "pass it on visual inspection." I want to tell them to keep the thing but I would have a heck of a time getting a new system together in time to finish my photo stuff and get all of my software re-installed.

Overall Review: I will be going back to Intel. If reliability is important to you, stick with Intel. I have yet to have a problem with any of my Intel systems.

Pros: I loved this processor, worked like a charm before my mobo died. I've ordered it's cousin the Dual core 4800+ that's .1ghz faster for my rebuild which i'm slowly saving the money for. AMD has always been fantastic :)

Cons: Can't use my old one!

Great Value! 3/2/2007 9:29:32 PM

Pros: Great value and is a world of difference upgrading from an Athlon 1.4 oc'd to 1.8

Cons: I think it is the mobo combo and overclocking software, but it doesn't like to be overclocked with my ASUS A8N5X Socket 939.

Overall Review: On a side note the mobo automatically will control CPU performance based upon need.

Best Proc I've Owned. 2/24/2007 9:46:14 AM

Pros: This thing is my best friend, I've owned it for a little over a year now and it is FANTASTIC! Runs at about 25C idle in my PC, no more than low 50sC at full load.

Cons: It's 200 bucks cheaper now than when I bought it... :( But I guess that's good for you guys

Overall Review: AMD FOR LIFE!!! I think I'm gonna go buy an X2 now that they are cheap.

Pros: It's freakin' AMD, what else needs to be said. Oh yeah, this chip rocks, has no trouble handling anything that I throw at it. If nothing else at least it's not Intel. . .

Cons: It doesn't go out for pizza
