These little chips make great cpu's for all-around use and budget gaming too. Be aware though the stock heatsink is crap. Try a nice inexpensive TX3 with this and you have a great low cost combo.
Overall, I'm super happy with this super fast CPU. Not once has it ever gone above 75% usage on any core.
The reason why I gave it a 4 star is because of the fan and the heat sink. The heat sink is tiny and the fan, o boy, the fan. The fan seems to be grinding againsts something because it makes some sort of noise and it doesn't fast enough. I checked out the speed and only averages less than 1000 rpm's and get the CPU HOT!!!. I've had several occasions where I'd play some games and the whole computer shutting down because it just got too hot. So for now, I stopped playing games so it doesn't stress out the CPU. So what I'm doing is having to buy thermal paste and reuse my old fan for the CPU which does around 2000 rpm's and cools it down to a relatively low temperature.
This model is a higher model at a cheaper price compared to other highly acclaimed computer online stores. I am absolutely satisfied with this product :).
Highly recommended :).
So if you want to get a (potentially) unlockable chip, I recommend getting it from the supply at the store I mentioned above.
Great deal for a budget gamer computer build.... especially if it unlocks with a decent motherboard.
I was also able to overclock it past 3.4GHZ, but I felt it was not needed with the games, yet.
The only con: is I was wishing for unlocking the L3 cache, but no luck. I did turn this into a AMD Phenom X4 B50 though, which I can't complain about!
This, along with a decent GTX460 and a measly 2GB ram can run Crysis at FULL HIGH settings after testing
A+ Value "bang for buck" in my opinion ... my setup did not even cost $500 total, and it is he-ll of a machine for the price I paid for everything.
I have also not overclocked this but can verify I was able to unlock the 4th core. I only did that temporarily because it did not unlock the Level 3 cache as well. It's not a true Phenom II on unlock without that. The extra core could also be unstable and because I am getting the speed I need now I don't need that extra core right now anyway. Maybe down the line I will look into doing it.
