By John Green VINE VOICE on December 15, 2009
After buying pre-built systems for several years, I finally broke down and built my own this time. I think it is important to establish how I am using the processor, so here is my system.

I paired this processor with an MSI 790GX-G65 motherboard as the basis of my new system. The other portions are 1 GB Hitachi HDD, LG DVD RW, PNY GEFORCE GTS 250 video card, Windows 7 Professional, 8 Gb DDR3 memory, Antec 300 case, and Antec Truepower Trio power supply. I have five case fans, four input and one output.

Now, on to the processor itself.
- It comes with an "Approved" AMD heat sink. With aftermarket heat sinks, one has a separate tube of lubricant that goes on top of the CPU to seal the connection with the sink, but on this heat sink the sealer is applied to the base of the heat sink, which is very convenient. This sealant looks a bit like thin cardboard at the base of the heat sink; don't be fooled, it is supposed to be there and no additional paste is needed. The heat sink is large, with lots of copper.

- Installing the processor is quite simple, so long as you remember to line up the "notch" on one end of the processor with the "notch" on the CPU mount. Instructions are provided with the retail kit. Between those and the instructions that come with motherboards, you should have no problem installing the CPU.

- The CPU has a "Cool N Quiet" mode, if your motherboard supports it. Mine does, and in this mode the processors (there are four processor cores on the chip) work at varying speeds, depending upon the task loading of each core. From what I can tell the speeds are 800, 2400, and 3400 Mhz. Using this feature, my CPU temperature is generally around 30 degrees Celsius. The highest temperature I have seen the chip at is 51 C.

AMD made the mold for overclocking processors with the original "Thunderbirds", and these are the legacy in Quad form. While they may not air cool to 4+GHz like the Intel comparison of the 975 Quad, they do their jobs without the 5x pricetag. They will clock with stock air cool to 3.65GHz, and aftermarket cooler to 3.9GHz easily. Water cool for over 4Ghz. AMD makes great processors, I can testify to that, since the late 90's. Gamez, Movies, Rips, heavy or lite jobs, these will do the trick. If you know a little about clocking your own systems or just want to learn this is a great place to start (if you mess one up, your ok cuz you still have 4 more processors to puchase before you reach the cash value of a Intel, lol).

The tech details are wrong for this processor. If you have any concerns about power usage DO NOT buy it. This is the first release not the revised unit.

5 Years of rigorous use and still running supreme! Fast and smooth as ever. From Windows XP to now Windows 8.1, from Photoshop to After Effects/Premiere to 3DS Max to AutoCAD it just chews up everything you throw at it. The stock cooler was an issue but with some BIOS setting changes that has not been an issue last 3 years. Now I am looking for a MOBO which is SATA III and can take this processor. I have been waiting over the years thinking I might need to change with programs and OS requiring more and more from the system but that has not happened. Unfortunately my MOBO is only SATA ii and needs an upgrade but I am not dropping this sweet baby yet!

Phenom pulls the HD5850*1 with no problem. If I did just a little more reaserch I'd find out that SAME CPU FOR 88.00$ I THINK is on this site with only 2 cores open. All you gota do is get a ASUS board( my case), ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 and the rest is easy. Unlock cores and OC. Read benches anywere if you dont belive me it pulls XFX HD5850 that's OC'd great@@!. One of my friends told me that his cpu was a thousand dollars my whole computer cost that much.(1150$) New games like Need for Speed Hot Persuit all max. Vegas fall out all max. The only Upgrade I'l need is another card and cpu in a year or so. Thank you AMD......................................
update UPDATE update

WOW STILL ALL THE NEW GAMES ARE PLAYING GREAT. OC TO JUST OVER 3.7GHZ AND I JUST DONT SEE THE NEED FOR UPGRADE ON HARDWARE OF MY GAMING PC. BY THE WAY I OC'd IT TO OVER 5.00 GHZ JUST TO SEE HOW HOT IT GET FOR THE FUTURE,,, AND WITH MY OLD STUFF IT ISNT GETTING HOT AT ALL. STILL HARD TO BELIVE :) ONCE AGAIN THANK U AMD .. :) : ):)

EXCELLENT !!! SUPER FAST. AMD FANS SUCK ALSO ORDERED A 955, and had the same problem, The fan grinds !!! Had to remove it and squeeze it to get them to work!!!Ordered a COOLER MASTER Hyper 212+, and works great however it won't mount in a small case like the Presario SR2020NX it sticks out and the MOBO had to be remover to allow for the Base to be installed !!!

First off, I am not overclocking this chip, I use it at the standard stock settings on an ASUS M4N82 Deluxe Motherboard... It performs very very well. Stable on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-Bit with 4GB PC2-6400 RAM... With a Zalman CNPS9700NT cooler attached it runs at around 43C no load and can go up to around 58-59C under load. Keep in mind that I am running the computer in the tropics and I have noteable heat radiation in my room (problems with ventilation), this coupled with the fact that it runs with TWO 9800GTX+ cards in the towers means that I am EXTREMELY PLEASED with it's performance under these conditions... I highly highly recommend this chip for the performance you are getting....

Treat this baby well and give it a nice home in a well ventilated tower, I am sure that you won't be disappointed.... (My tower for reference if you're building, is an older full size Thermaltake Xaser III- Blue with the two side fans removed).

Update 19/08/2012:- Still running! And Still good performance for my games. I have since upgraded to an e-VGA 560Ti 1GB with one of the 9800 GTX+ (for PhysX). I have also installed a CoolIT Systems ECO 240 A.L.C. all in one Liquid Coolding system (the Zalman CPU bracket kept on breaking with me, despite OEM replacement parts. Will never buy from them again). So I would still highly recommend this chip if you want to game at some decent settings. Works well for me.
