Beast! 10/4/2017 7:58:45 PM

Pros: I plugged this CPU into a Shuttle XPC barebone and it worked like it should. Played games wonderfully. From 1.6 to HL2 and Need for Speed Most Wanted.

Cons: Ran a little warm but it was inside an XPC.

Overall Review: Outdated.

This chip is a trooper 7/21/2012 2:59:06 AM

Pros: Solid clock speed and performance for it's day and age. Purchased it 5 years ago and it's still running strong with its stock cooler. Can handle all games from the past decade (and a lot of current high-end games, such as Skyrim) on high settings. It's awesome for what it is.

Cons: It's old and outdated now, but that's not really a flaw. There's just plenty of way better CPUs out there now.

Overall Review: It still holds out even today with no signs of real aging (other than the bottleneck that's rearing its head with contemporary games). Retiring this beast in the next few weeks and upgrading to an AM3+ mainboard with a Phenom II X4 955. I'm embracing the future (and looking forward to running games on ultra high settings again).

Its old and its still running! 5/24/2012 7:08:34 PM

Pros: Its been about 6 years since I built this computer, and its still running strong.

Cons: Its beginning to become outclassed by the newer Processors...

Overall Review: I can play games from GTA4 to World of Tanks on this chip, and its still able to do it well.

Either way, I'm going to be replacing this rig hopfully within the next week or so, I've done a great amount of homework on what is what and what is the best.

Its worth it when it lasts this long.(I never once overclocked it)

WEll done 11/6/2011 8:48:11 PM

Pros: Lasted since I built it in in 2007. 5 years, 2 overclocks to 2.9ghz, 2 mobos and 3 vid cards later...It really is an amazing piece of work, and tomorrow i replace it with a thuban 1100, as BF3 just wont allow it.

Cons: cant OC past 3.0ghz... and that's just fine.

Overall Review: best money I ever spent on a computer part.

Fast, long-lasting processor. 1/27/2011 3:01:28 PM

Pros: Very fast, especially for its time.
It has lasted for 4 years of heavy gaming, with games like Battlefield 2, Portal, Command and Conquer, Call of Duty 4, and MUCH more.
STILL works, just as fast as it did when it was new.

Cons: I'm surprised it has lasted so long. This thing runs HOT.
Averages 50c idle, goes up to 70c when it's really busy.

Overall Review: I've never looked into overclocking it. It has out-lasted 2 graphics cards.

Great chip 1/19/2008 12:49:11 PM

Pros: Real fast processor, everything is very responsive in Vista. I'm very please with it.

Cons: Stock fan/heatsink is well, stock. It gets the job done but definitely not for overclocking.

Overall Review: I'm going to try and OC it as far as it will go with a zalman 8700 fan/heatsink.

Good OC 1/3/2008 12:56:46 AM

Pros: Great processor, has lasted me more than a year now. Had a Phenom 9500 but there are problems with it, so I just threw this guy back in there. Let me tell you, its a pretty decent overclocker for AMD. So far I've got this guy to 3GHz without touching the voltage @ 28 Celcius

Cons: I will let you know when I find one.

Overall Review: Antec 900 case.
4GB Corsair 4-4-4-12.
XFX Nvidia GeForce 8800GT 512MB.
Asus Crosshair Mobo.

Pros: There's a reason why this processor was nominated for a customer's choice award - there really isn't a better combination of price versus performance than with this processor.
Noticeable upgrade from a 6300 Core 2 Duo.

Cons: Absolutely none.
