Colin , Pontefract, Yorkshire Longtime custom computer builder

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
In my latest custom build on a Gigabyte 990FXA M/brd this chosen cpu at this very moment is running cool 46 deg Centigrade with its AMD Cpu
Cooler on it. Overclocked at 4.6 Ghz rock steady too. It will go faster than that in test runs. I am well pleased with 4.6Ghz.
Bad points:
None I can find, AMD CPU's have always been my choice in builds

Kevin,

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Cheap, fast, stable. Easily overclocks to 4.7 on stock voltage.
Bad points:
Its not any faster than my last phenom, perhaps slower in some tasks. VM ware cannot use its cores properly for virtualisation as it uses a hyperthreading like process. My I3 at work is much faster and Intel mb easier to overclock. Might be last AMD I buy.
