I recently installed this cpu. So far no problems. Idles around 27C. I even got it working on my older asus m2n-e motherboard. In the process of looking for a good board right now. I recommend it.

It's a great processor for the money. I wouldn't hesitate to do a build with one, but that being said it is slower than an i7, because clock per clock it's not as fast as a Core 2 Q9550. But then it also costs a few dollars less, and I would still recommend it. I rated this product as better than pretty good, but not quite excellent.

currently the best CPU for money on the market that's for sure im extremely impressed the l3 size isn't much smaller than that of a i7 so it competes extremely well with the i7's but is much cheaper so its well worth it and it also doesn't get no were near as hot as the i7's do in the same environment the i7 was reaching 80 degrees Celsius + with stock gear were as the phenom being cheaper only hit a dead set max temp of 50 all under stock cooling so very impressed once again

has everything i could ever want smash's core2quad that cost around the same money easily although the i7 top range is a tiny bit faster but 1000% not worth the money for that tiny bit especially since this core overclock extremely well with stock cooling so again very impressed

5/5 for everything i could not be more happier with my purchase :)

money for power ratio is EXCELLENT. Despite what some people say, its not that far behind the i7! Everything I throw at it, it handles with ease! Upgraded from 5200 athlon, EXTREMELY impressed! Overclocked to 3.5 easily. I hear 4 is possible. I BELIEVE IT!
