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.Read more ›

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 .. :) : ):)
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.

You know what? This processor ROCKS! I think AMD PII blows intel away for both price and performance. Although I'm quite sure you can find a better price for it elsewhere. Read morePublished on December 21, 2010 by Michael Friedlander
