Now its built ... WOW
Windows 7 Pro 64bit
WEI = 7.0 CPU temp is 60F at Idle and 104F when Running AutoCAD 2011
It fires up and has Windows 7 open in less than a minute from when I hit the power on button. SSD power!
No problems with the build at all it ran the first time and hasn't missed a beat runs cooler than my old Quad core and doesn't lag when running CAD.
My New CAD Workstation complete build in a repurposed HP Pavillion (Windows ME)PS is on bottom, all drives are in a removable bracket that slides out the front making it easy to service and a much smaller foot print than a tower.

If I had to do it over again, I'd have kept using the Athlon 2 Quad Core and went with a premium 7000 series Radeon card rather than spend over $200 to upgrade two separate components.
Oh well, it's runs cool, quiet, and it is slightly faster. WIll probably serve me well for the next couple of years.
Using a good thermal paste and the stock heatsink/fan, I have had zero problems with heat management.
I ended up choosing this processor because it offered the most cores (my main concern for server virtualization) at the best price point. Of course, AMD doesn't make this particular Phenom anymore, so it may be less widely-available as time goes on and stocks deplete. But, if you can snag one at a good price, I don't think you'll be disappointed.
This one improves perfomance but it rans a little bit noisier than the
other one because of the TDP (95w instead of 65W).
To reduce the noise I bought an Silenx 80 MM cooler and that
fixed the problem.
Apart from that the processor its a good buy , and I fully recommend it
