I have a 620.... I overclocked it to 3.4ghz 24/7 stable on the stock cooler.

For a 99 dollar chip 3 years ago when i bought it, i'm happy, it's now my sister's processor and still runs great smile.gif

They are about 5% less in performance or so.... and thats only in certain programs. The lack of l3 cache, but some of them can unlock... you should try it, enable ACC and give it a go.

My 620 unlocked to 6mb l3, but i couldn't get it to boot windows frown.gif

I have one though I haven't been able to overclock it due to bad memory. Too bad I'm on a DDR2 board or else I would overclock it asap. As far as a CPU goes it's pretty decent and performs about as fast as my i5 650 when it comes to decompressing folders and whatnot.
There seems to be a temperature sensor bug though where the reported temperature in Coretemp is about 15C lower than it should be. Coretemp also says the max allowable temp is 65C which is pretty cold. Idle temps are reported as 14C and the ambient room temperature is about 25C. Is there a way to fix this?

Hmm, I believe I don't have this problem. Have you contacted amd for support? I'm a newb so don't bother asking me. tongue.gif

Not yet though it could be a thing with the motherboard. It's a Gigabyte 785G US2H and I've had issues with display output before, though since then I've resolved them (updated the bios).
