Great CPU for the $$

AMD Phenom II X4 925 - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 2.8 GHz Socket AM3 95W Processor - HDX925WFGIBOX

Pros: I have this chip overclocked to 3.3GHZ (240x14) at 1.375V and it is completly stable running 8gigs dual channel ddr3 1600 RAM. Idles at 32C and when gaming hits 45-50 on the stock heatsink and never had a crash.

Cons: Took a while to find the right voltages, but I haven't done this for awhile so I had to re-learn a bunch of stuff. The AMD Overdrive software does not really work with this chip. That could just be my mobo though, not sure.

Easy Install

Pros: USB 3.0 Bios that allows you to tweak everything.

Cons: If you want sli or crossfire it will be a very tight fit.
