Hey Guys, My old system finally started going out so I had to run to the store and buy something to replace it quickly. I saw this thread thought I would give a 550BE a try since it was cheap. Here's my results so far.
AMD Phenom II 550BE (0951APMW) Chilled by Coolmaster V8
Gigabyte GA-MA785GMT-UD2H Rev 1.0 w/F5 Bios (I tested the F3, F4, & F5 Bios All of them worked for unlocking)
Kingston HyperX DDR3 1600 4GB (2x2GB) Dual Channel Kit CAS8
Sapphire HD4870 Toxic
I haven't had time to mess with it much this is just my initial. Temps sitting at about 48c max load during prime95. Stock cooler could barely handle it unlocked at stock speeds.
BTW mines a 0951APMW production run that I just bought on Newegg.ca
