5 + years later, runs Windows 10 fine

Pros: I have two. One is still running the fourth stable core at stock speeds, running Prime95 for 10 hours without fail in recent test before upgrading the OS. Coupled with a Radeon 5750, and upgraded to an SSD, the system boots Windows 10 64 in 20 seconds from cold and has no issues with minor gaming, HD streaming videos, Blu-ray, etc. I did place an aftermarket cooler on it. Temps are moderate and it does not heat us out of the room.

The second did not have a fourth stable core. It's a nearly identical rig and boots barely any slower. Coupled to a 720 TV, it is also great for entertaining us.

Cons: Newegg required me to enter a Con. It wasn't even cheaper? At $20 per year and still running a current OS, responsive and able to perform as a HTPC, I don't think there is a thing to complain about.

All good.

Pros: Great performance. I'm a heavy gamer and I use my computer a lot. This processor is still running fantastic after a year. Runs cool.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: 11/25/2011 = DOP.

4th core unstable

Pros: I bought it at a bargain price. Delivery was on time.

Cons: CPU: the fourth core unlocked and recognized as an Athlon II. The fourth core was not at all stable and soon crashed the PC.
Speed: unimpressive, even with three cores it still performs like a slow Athlon II 2 core chip.

Bent pins: : It was not centered properly in the package before it shipped. I had to use a retractable pencil fuslelage to bend the pins back into position.

Other Thoughts: My fellow computer service company owners, please pay attention. We had a quote request from a woman who is starting a business of her own. She burned us quit badly.
I have to watch my language in this post. After we spent a considerable amount of our own unpaid time making a quote for her, she went and bought everything somewhere else., except the for a AMD-based server. At least now I can get rid of this CPU in a very satisfying way. I can "upgrade" the server with it. I don't want to even sell the server to her, but my partner insists.
These kind of so-called "shrewd" small business women are really just opportunists ripping-off vendors. That's not what shrewd means. Shrewd does not mean cheap narcissist.
I say to her cee yoU iN Toledo. There are so many shrewd ones from there. So there you have it. She is slow, bent and unimpressive.

Super Duper Card

Pros: Large cache
Good interface speed
Speedy
Cool on decent cooling (averages at 87ish degrees F.)
Reliable/durable
Overclockes well
Affordable

So, I got this one yer for Xmas, and installed it and all. Now, a year later, I decided that 2.8 with the unlocked 4th core aint enough, so I looked some stuff up, and OCed it. Runs great at 3.2 for me, I've heard that with good cooling you can easily get to a stable 3.5-3.8, not that my cooling bad, it's just fine, but I like to be at the safe side. So, @ 3.2, it never goes above 110 deg F.

Love it. Caution OCing though.

Cons: Uhhhhhhhh, none.

Other Thoughts: Loven it, and it works super fine, only hangs when I leave it on all night with a heavy game on. But, it knocks itself back into place a few minutes after I close the game.

A must buy.

3/ 5

Pros: Worked.
Was able to unlock 4th core.
A (slight) upgrade from my X2 5200

Cons: 4th core unstable.
CPU came with a deep (0.5 mm or so) gash in the surface. Initially I thought it was a scratch on the packaging, but then I realized it was the cpu surface! Didn't really have problems with temperatures though.

Amazing for the price!

Comments: I purchased this roughly 8 months ago for my budget gaming PC build ($440). I have been nothing but pleased with the price/performance. 4th core unlocked flawlessly using the bios, and I even managed to OC it from there using a cheap, generic cooler. Not that I would dock eggs had it not unlocked, as it would still be a solid CPU for the price. It's too bad these aren't available anymore, were such an amazing deal. In the case that these are restocked, I must highly recommend.
