Pros: Overclocks insanely well, runs very cool - doesn't require to many volts

Cons: Stock cooler crap - Somewhat old now

Got one of these quite a while ago, Was easily able to overclock it to 4.0Ghz on air and 4.7 on a closed loop. Still performs well in newer games, even if it is quite old by now. Was able to undervolt it even though I am running it +1ghz. Stock cooler is pretty loud, but it does its job well.

Pros: cheap, performed well

Cons: not the best

I had this chip before I had my i5 and It was a great little chip. It ran a single 570 without an issue. Once I put a second 570 in, it started to have some problems. I ended up selling it to my cousin for very cheap and it works perfectly for him. He loves it, It works as it is supposed to and is plenty fast for his needs.

Overall it is a great chip, I was happy with it's performance. I never had any major complaints with it.

Pros: Fast, 4 Cores, Fast, Fast, Fast, Unlocked Multiplier and Fast

Cons: Stock HSF is crap - loud

My old rig was a E-Machines pre-built with a Pentium D 805.

This is amazingly fast. For everyday stuff and gaming, this is where it's at for budget builds. Multitasking has no limit, my old Pentium D would freeze with a Chrome tab and CoD4....

This thing can do everything I want and play a game without breaking a sweat.
