Most Favorable Review

consistant temp

AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2 65W Black Edition Processor - ADO5000DSWOF
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ - Athlon 64 X2 Brisbane Dual-Core 2.6 GHz Socket AM2 65W Black Edition Processor - ADO5000DSWOF

Pros: I am using a SilverStone small form factor case and my cpu fan and the power supply fan have only about 1/2 inch of distance from one another. To my suprise this processor maintains a constant 40C as my fan may speed up at times to keep this temp. Only had this about 3 weeks but so far I am very pleased. Have not had the desire to up the processor speed yet, I am just happy that everything is going smoothly with the small case.

Cons: none yet.

Overall Review: I think the reason that a fan is not included with the processor is that most people will overclock and then the fan provided will no longer be sufficient.

Eagle Tech Cool Power ET-PSCP 500 500 W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: worked for almost 2 months

Cons: Power supply lasted for not even 2 months, one evening I smelt something burning and when I entered the room, the power supply was fried. It also took out my motherboard and processor along with it.

Overall Review: Spend a little bit more, you really do get what you pay for.
