solid cpu and offer very good value
Cons none


This CPU is a great deal, if you're looking at building a entry level and budget computer. with 2gb ram, running XP on it. Fast and cool at only 45 watts

-easy to OC
-unlocked multiplier
-runs cool
Cons -no HSF? No worries though!


Been running this on 2.9ghz so far with a small bump on the voltage. I unfortunately cannot go any further. I would assume it to be due to my budget, crap-brand motherboard. But apparently people can get this up to 3.2ghz on air.I will try to OC it even more when I get a new mobo. It did notice a very decent increase in speed. Upgraded from a 3000+ 1.6ghz sempron to this baby.Highly recommended. Expect the price for this to go even lower!

Good OCer
Unlocked multiplier for those who need it
Cons no HS


Great CPU here. There is really no need to have the multiplier unlocked on this processor when it OC better with lower than stock multiplier. Running stable at 3.2 at stock voltage with a Zalman 9500.

Great CPU for the price hands down.

Experience: 1 Months


Unlocked Multiplier - 2.9ghz on stock voltage
Overclocking Potential
Cons no HSF included


In my first build, I needed a cheap processor without breaking the bank, so I decided on this one because the price low. While it may not be the newest processor on the block, it can be competitive with those whom are slightly more powerful due to the Black Edition's unlocked multiplier. With this feature free of its chains, I was able to get this gem up to 2.9ghz on stock voltage just by increasing the multiplier from 13x to 14.5x stable. If I had the time, i'd attempt to overclock it even more.

My only beef with this is that it didn't include even a fairly cheap HSF and thus you need to buy one separate if you want to overclock without worrying too much about overheating.

Overall, good processor and fun to overclock if you have the time.

Very high OC ability!
No need much power!
Cons Performance!


Good CPU, good OC ability!
However, the performance is not too good!
Its worth to buy if on a tight budget.

great CPU .
Cons no,It is good


This ia a great CPU to buy if you're looking at building a cheap system. I installed this one on a ASUS M2A-VM and it works great. It's fast enought for gaming and anything else you might want to do. I haven't tried to overclock it yet.

Experience: 2 Years


Very Easy To overclock
runs cool 45-55C
I play games like Crysis, CoD4, Hald LIfe 2 on it

Cons none


This thing runs 3.0 gHZ on my stock HP computer with stock cooling with no problems. Over all this is great CPU, I would recommend anyone. I play games like Crysis, CoD4, Half Life 2 on it with no prob on my 9800GT.

Easily overclocked, runs very cool
Cons None


Unlocked multiplier makes it very easy to overclock to 2.9 GHz without the need to increase the voltage. With a good cooler and by increasing voltage, this proc can easily reach 3.2 GHz.

Much better choice than the more expensive locked 6400+ (twice the price) as this CPU runs much much cooler.

Comment: Neoseeker's William Henning reviews the Athlon X2 5000+ BE, including overclocking results (to 3.396GHz) and benchmarks versus various other processors (including, but not limited to: E6300, E6400, E4300, and FX-62).
Posted by: S_G @12/28/07
Comment: The 5000+ Black Edition is the ideal choice for users who wish to upgrade their existing AM2 systems. Thanks to its low power dissipation even when overclocked, buying a new cooling solution is unnecessary. Furthermore, the low heat generation also means the system will not become much noisier as a
