Experience: 2 Years
Quad Core, Cheap, Gets the job done
This is a very good CPU for someone on a low budget gaming build. You can get this CPU and pair it with a cheap GPU and get better performance than most APUs for the price. I have purchased this CPU twice and highly recommend it to anyone with a low budget.

Experience: 6 Months
Such a powerful cpu! Well ahead of it's time. As a gaming computer, it can do pretty much run any current title fantastically. ESPECIALLY if you have a great gpu(which I don'tbut its okay since the cpu is beast). as a music recorder/mixer, it runs super smooth. as an image editor, it is pretty flawless. I am very happy with this cpu and cheers to the year with this baby :)
All the low end computers don't have it :(
If you are on a budget and really a want a gaming pc or whatever, do NOT look away from these. this will be the best $90+ you will ever spend, and if you can get it cheaper you truly have won. it is a very,very reliable cpu. Phenom II is the sweet spot for quad cores in terms of price range and processing power

Good update  for an old am2 platform. Super overclocker!
very hot, you absolutely need anaftermarket cooler, like all the others reviewa say.
Just brilliant, Revives my old amd2 platform for another 2 years. Imust be really lucky, but instantly overclocked to 4.0ghz, with just a modest increase in voltage. I an old aftermarket cooler, roswell which was running with the old pc. Mistake, underload, the temps would rise past 65. so I spent the extra dollars and bought a huge noctua heatsink with a 140mm fan. The beast is now running at 4.0ghz, rock solid 24 hours prime95.

Fast for what i need it for. Using it for a HTPC setup.
Can run hot at times. must use aftermarket heat sink.
This is my first HTPC build. I found that with a tighter case the temps can get high (60 plus degrees). So the need for a aftermarket heat sink is a must. Other than that no issues, great performer does its job well.

Cheap and solid performance!
Not much I can think of.
I bought this for my gf PC and I must say for an older chip it holds its own pretty well! Runs relatively cool and nice to have the unlocked multi. Games well with a cheap gtx 470 I picked up. Definitely can't complain, if your on a budget I would highly recommend this!

Experience: 4 Weeks

fast enough for just about anything
good price
unlocked easy overclocking
loud stock fan
used lot power at full load
price dropped $10 on me 2 days after I ordered ncix wouldn't refund $10
Good bang for your buck fast enough for almost anything.

This chip is Unlocked most will overclock to 3.8 1.4v to 4.2GHz 1.5v depending on cooling and the voltage your willing to pump in to the chip and your mother boards voltage regulators as this chip already needs 125w and overclocking will push the CPU to even higher wattage possibly over heating and overloading the mother boards voltage regulators so be careful.

Some chips just don't overclock well at all and some do and it all depends if your lucky sometimes.

my friends hit 4.2 no problem at 1.5v mine needs 1.525v at 4ghz and hits the wall will not go anyhigher

I run stock voltage at 3.6ghz with cool n quiet on not worth all the extra heat fan noise and hydro use for only 400mhz higher OC plus it's super fast anyway maybe in few years Ill go for little higher OC but for now its fast enough for me.

I was disapointed the price dropped by $10 2 days after I order ncix refused to refund the $10

I was disappointed in ncix but the price was still good

I was like ahhhhh man! should have waited 2 days oh well.

This chip was a bargain still best price I could fined I would buy it again If needed

not the fastest out there
On sale for $80. Paired with a 970A board and some DDR3 1600. OC'ed to 3.8 at 1.35v with a Hyper 212. A very capable system for under $200. It's no i7 but it's enough power for most people at a fraction of the cost.

$79.99, It's really good price to performance ratio. 8 MB cache.
125 watts, these can run a bit hot, stock fan is awful.
I've been using a AMD 945, and 965 in two of my machines for two years now. They are solid and can still handle what ever I throw at them. I bought this 955 to upgrade my media computer based on my experience with the 945 and 965.

This performs as well for what I throw at it. The stock fan that comes with these three CPU's I mentioned are the same and they are horrible. They are really loud. These also tend to run pretty warm compared to the Intel CPU's that I have. When I picked this up I also picked up a new cooler knowing how loud and bad the stock one is.

I'd buy another one of these if I need an inexpensive CPU. These are still perform well and are at a great price. Most CPU's this cheap do not have an 8 MB cache.

Best band for buck CPU !!!
None for the moment and i'm guessing its going to stay that way
This thing has a lot of power and performs really well under any situation. Overclocks really easy too.
