AMD make super solid, value chips and are a tweakers dream come true.. with the right board many of their chips can be unlocked to add multiple cores such as this one.. this paticular one unlocked to a dual core and overclocked to a rock solid and stable 3Ghz with a 6.5 Windows 7 score on the small, stock cooler.. Just a fantastic deal...

I put together a Mint Linux 14 MATE box that I wanted to leave on all the time, so it needed to be low power. Dropped an Antec 80 Plus power supply for added power economy. In past I'd enjoyed the stability, affordability, and economy of older socket A Semprons over the Durons of yesteryear. So, I decided to try one again for the Mint Linux box I was building. I've been using it now for about 6 months. The motherboard is GA-MA78GPM-UD2H by Gigabyte, have 4 GB of 800 Mhz RAM installed.

This low power (45W rated) processor does anything available and streaming from the internet. Any HD videos, most are 720p online, all stream across my fiber optic broadband and run great using this processor & the motherboard has onboard video chip too, using shared RAM. I've had no problems with photo editing using GIMP in Linux.

It runs so cool, most times the cpu fan is the only one running and that's usually on slow speed. Right now in 70F degrees house, the CPU is at 44 Centigrade, or 111 F degrees. My PSU has a fan control inbuilt and I almost never hear it kick on. I pulled the case fan from the tower because it was totally unneeded with this Sempron processor and using it now in another tower with AMD Phenom X4 in it.

If you are building a Linux box or hooking a computer to a TV setup for streaming video from online, don't spend extra on hot processors with lots of cores when this is more than sufficient and won't burn up your electric bill either.

see it in action.

Using BioStar TA890GXE MoBo Biostar AMD 890GX Micro ATX DDR3 1333 AM3 Motherboard with Bio Remote and 6 feet HDMI Cable TA890GXERCH or w/o the remote and cable Biostar TA890GXE Socket AM3/AMD 890GX/SATA3/Hybrid CrossFireX/A&V&GbE/Micro ATX Motherboard TA890GXE :
Unlocked 2nd core to Athlon II x2 445 C3 (Athlon II x2 4450e C3).
Overclocked to 3.36Ghz, 240MHz (HT) using MoBo BIOS presets only.

Excellent CPU and truly valuable.

Very inexpensive compared to other current AM3 CPUs.

Research the benchmarks and see how well it performs as a single core and then as a dual core. It is a true value vs. performance CPU.

I purchased this CPU and Mobo at Amazon and with Super Saver Shipping, it arrived in 6 days.

I am using this CPU on a virtual coin miner and it works great. Consumes little electricity and has no lag. Would I recommend this for an every use computer? Nope. Only use this for computers that don't require heavy use. If you need an everyday computer, spend a little more and go with a much faster model.

I purchased this CPU to go along with an AMD 880G motherboard (with the sb710 southbridge) in order to attempt to create a very low cost, low energy dual-core media computer. I had read that this particular chip had a high unlock capability rate, and I had a $20 gift code I had purchased for $10 from Groupon, so I decided to take the chance. Sure enough, the unlock feature on the motherboard unlocked the additional core and after some time testing for stability I was convinced it was good to go. If you are interested and have not read the reviews on unlocking this chip, it unlocks to what CPU-Z shows is an Athlon II Regor X2 4450e CPU. It definitely increases the CPU's capabilities in benchmarks and day-to-day tasks. It's not as fast as my higher clocked quad core Athlon, but it's definitely night and day faster than the older single core CPUs and should be extremely competitive with dual-core Celeron and most older dual-core Pentiums. For $41, it's hard to pass this one up. Even if it doesn't unlock, it's still far better than any other single-core CPUs still in existence.

Always use the right item for what you need to do. What do you want it for?

I wanted a multi-GPU mining rig. This is the right choice for the CPU on my rig.

Now for how NOT to use it:
1) If you want a high power CPU this isn't it.
2) If you want a gaming rig then don't bother.
3) If you want a mining rig where the ASIC does the job then get a Raspberry Pi.

You got to use the right tool for any job. I wanted to build a GPU mining rig and the most basic CPU is just fine. I am not even going to bother with unlocking it. All the CPU needs to do is drive the GPUs. So a ~30 $ CPU is more than sufficient while the real workhorses the GPUs each cost over 200 $.

This CPU was purchased strictly as a troubleshooting device, since I got no support from the tech support people at Gigabyte in determining what was causing my computer failure, I had no choice but to replace parts. So it went in, along with a new power supply and video card. The failure was (naturally) the motherboard itself. So this cpu did what I needed it to do for the smallest amount of money possible. Now it's back in its box and will probably never see the light of day again.
