Hidden deep in the heart of most mild-mannered Clark Kent, X3 455 processors is the snarling soul of a Phenom II X4 B5 beast!

A drop in replacement for a dual core, runs MUCH faster, but also a little hot.

I bought this processor for a new build consisting of a GIGABYTE GA-970A-UD3 AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard, Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler, RR-B10-212P-G1, and Corsair Vengeance Blu 8 GB (2X4 GB) PC3-12800 1600mHz DDR3 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Memory Kit CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9B. Of course there's a case, power supply, all the normal stuff, but I think this is what's essential for this review...

If you have any experience with computer building, or are simply starting and willing to learn, you should be fine. This isn't my first build, but it is my first full build in a while. Over the years, I've just refurbished older machines and they've worked fine for me. However, I finally broke, and put together a relatively new system. I normally try to stay a step behind the industry since I know that Hardware will continually supercede software--hence why I decided on the older (and, in my opinion, proven) Athlon II x 3 455, triple core processor.

I did quite a bit of research before purchasing this processor, since I wanted to ensure its longevity.

(Overclocker/Nerd Minute)

From other people's experiences, this processor, with the proper cooling (better cooling than simply a Hyper 212+ with one fan) has been noted to get to 3.9+ (not quite 4) GHz across three cores.

This is the best processor for everyday computer use. Only computational extensive spread sheets and computer gaming, or equivalent CPU intensive software would benefit from a more expensive and higher end processor than this one. This processor saves energy over the expensive higher end processors. This processor has a max wattage of 95W while the highest end processors consume 125W or more. AMD is a great company who out innovates its behemoth rival, Intel. However since Intel is a giant compared to AMD, AMD must offer their processors with a greater value for the customer. This means that the customer will get more processing power and less energy usage for the same amount of money spent on an Intel product.

This processor requires an AM3 processor socket on the motherboard. However, if the BIOS on the motherboard support this, and most do, this processor can be placed into an AM2+ socket motherboard. This is because this processor contains circuits to drive both DDR2 and DDR3 memories.

If your motherboard supports core unlocking, it is likely that the fourth core can be unlocked in this processor resulting in a quad-core processor for the price of a three core processor. Many non-OEM motherboards support core unlocking. (These are motherboards that do not come inside fully built computers such as computers bought from Dell.) Here is one example of a motherboard that supports core unlocking. Asus Socket AM3+/ AMD 970/ Quad CrossFireX/ SATA3&USB3.0/ A&GbE/ ATX Motherboard (M5A97)

When this processor is bought in a retail box, such as this review is attached to, the box contains the processor, a heat-sink and fan.

Psssst! Listen carefully. There's a nasty secret about these X3 processors you really need to know. Hidden deep in the heart of most mild-mannered Clark Kent, X3 455 processors is the snarling soul of a Phenom II X4 B5 beast! Buy yourself a motherboard that can unlock the fourth processor (I bought a Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3) and if you are fortunate (most people are) you have an instant X4 B5. Some processors are unstable when the 4th core is unlocked. If that is the case, you still got what you paid for, and it's still a good processor.

But if you, like I did, unlock the 4th processor and find it perfectly stable, you now have MUCH MORE than you paid for. But don't say it too loud. This is just between you and me. Nobody else needs to know.

I chose this CPU for several reasons:

1) It is cheap.
2) You can, with the right motherboard, unlock the fourth core. This makes a it a wee bit more powerful and means more power for your dollar.
3) It's an AM3 socket and my motherboard supports AM3+ so it is possibly to keep upgrades in mind for the future without completely having to rebuild the rig. That can make a big difference when upgrading.

If you want to know more about this processor put in a quick google search.

Just fine for most computing tasks even gaming. Tried to unlock the fourth core but got blue screen of death after 15-20 minutes so there must have been a bad spot in the L2 cache. No big deal still got a cheap gaming CPU that will last a year or so until I upgrade to an eight core bulldozer or if my motherboard supports it piledriver CPU.
