Often cast as the unwanted middle child between the dual core and the quad core, the triple core Athlon II is quite the little processor. It is a great gaming processor and is excellent for muli-threaded tasks. Also with the right motherboard containing ACC the Athlon X3 might be able to be unlocked into a quad core.

CPU History
The Athlon II series is based on the AMD K10 architecture and derived from the Phenom II series. However, unlike its Phenom siblings, it does not contain any L3 Cache. The three core Rana is derived from the Propus quad core design, with one core disabled.


Rana (45 nm SOI with Immersion Lithography)

Three AMD K10 cores
Quad Core Propus die with one disabled
L1 cache: 64 kB + 64 kB (data + instructions) per core
L2 cache: 512 kB per core, full-speed
Memory controller: dual channel DDR2-1066 MHz (AM2+), dual channel DDR3-1333 (AM3) with unganging option
MMX, Extended 3DNow!, SSE, SSE2, SSE3, SSE4a, AMD64, Cool'n'Quiet, NX bit, AMD-V
Socket AM3, HyperTransport with 2000 MHz
Power consumption (TDP): 45 Watt or 95 Watt
Released Oct 20, 2009 (C2 Stepping)
Clock rate: 2200–3000 MHz
Models: Athlon II X3 400e - 405e, 425 - 440

I recomemnd you download CPUz to validate your CPU and CPUID HWMonitor to monitor your CPU temps.


Here is the spreadsheet. I will try and update this daily.



*This list was created with the post's in this thread, using only the people who have the CPU in their signature.
If you still use the Athlon II X3 but haven't it in your signature just post and i will add you to the list.

Will be receiving one of these tomorrow morning to swap out my 4Ghz 550 BE. Going to be racking in some points at HWBOT.ORG.

Be fun to get a bunch of people here to share there experiences and results with one of the 2 new X3 Athlon chips. Mine is the 435. Should be fun tomorrow after its lapped

Anyone else considering?

Don't these have a low TDP? Why lap it if temperatures stay low? Just voiding warrenty for no reason..

RawZ gets a new processor every 2 months... Usually downgrading

Chip has arrived. I'll update as we go.
post #8 of 583
Righto..

Update #1


Just put into the system.

If you see below.. i'm not going to bother lapping i don't think.

Idle 16.C @ stock clocks and volts.



NOTE: CPU-Z says its a 535.. maybe they haven't updated there database.

One review i saw yest was commenting on how low the temps were at load.

I ran OCCT for 10 mins only (usually gives you an indication of what the top end load temps are.. 19.C

19.C on load! :O :O


I think i'm in for some fun OC'ing!


EDIT: Left it a bit, and it's actually 14.C idle temps

Cool and Quiet is off I assume? I've been looking into getting an Athlon II. Those temps seem ridiculously low...are they your cores and not the actual CPU? And what cooler are you using?

I'm on watercooling, and my room is kinda cold i guess.

Cool and Quiet is always off, never enable that. Checked Everest and it says the same.
