Ian, Andover

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Price-performance - paired with a gtx560ti graphics card spare from a gaming rig upgrade I can now run recent games on my home office machine - just not at max settings
Bad points:
The stock cooler - very noisy on a hot day. Invest in a decent after market one - that's why its a 9/10

Callum, Buxton I am awesome

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Haven't had a chance to fully benchmark this CPU but so far it works fantastic and is excellent value for money. I have played quite a few games on it and it performs flawlessly on high settings although that is not fully down to the CPU, it helps a lot!

Andrew,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
this processor has allowed me to bring my old asus motherboard as much up-to date as possible. this is the maximum processor my motherboard will take. its saved me alot of money not having to do a new pc build and has enabled me with a new graphics card to play games like the new tomb raider and bioshock infinate with no issues at all. Its also enabled me to do my vid camera to pc transfer and make dvd alot quicker. very pleased.
Bad points:
encountered no problems, some reviews stated it can run a bit hot so I just got a better cooler instead of using the stock amd one, only cost another £16. so cannot complain as the processor was a brilliant price.

Manufacturer's Description

The AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Processor is a powerful quad-core processor with impressive performance and full overclocking control. Compatible with socket AM3 motherboards, this high-end, enthusiast-class CPU will impress gamers and other users who insist on full speed at all times.

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of the 3.4 GHz AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Processor is its unlocked clock multiplier, which means you can fine-tune the overclock frequency to your exact needs. If your cooling system is up to the job, feel free to crank it up to silly speeds!

Of course a high clock speed is nothing without high throughput, and that’s where AMD’s K10 ‘Deneb’ architecture comes in. With a generous 6 MB L3 cache and speedy HyperTransport bus, the four cores of the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition CPU crunch through heavy workloads at a staggering pace.

Of course for optimum performance you will need a sophisticated cooling system – air or liquid – and equally potent memory, storage, and graphics sub-systems. But in the right system, this CPU can deliver superlative performance!

Dive into the world of custom-tuned, high-end home computing with the AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Processor.
