Pros

Can take almost anything you throw at it.
Cons
Without a aftermarket cooler, it will run very hot.
Summary
Going from a dual-core to this, I noticed a huge performance increase in games, and other intensive programs (mostly Adobe stuff).
Been using it for just under a year now with a Coolermaster TX3, and no problems at all.

Pros

very fast and easy over clock.
not a power-hungry processor
Cons
the stock cooler barely does its job at stock clock. recommend a decent after market cooler
Summary
this cpu coupled with the coolmaster hyper 212+ cooler will definitely make your amd system rock. i upgraded from a 9850 be and i am more then pleased with results on my m3a32-MVP deluxe.
on win 7 alone the performace ratings jumped from 6.9 to 7.4 for cpu performance.

Pros

-quad core
-black edition
Cons
-125w
-heat
-load stock fan
Summary
Bought this for a new build and is a total beast. I can push it up to 50% on all four core but there were times where it reached 100% while video editing. This chip runs quite hot on stock cooler. On idle, it was sitting at around 45 degrees while on load was in the high 50s. The stock cooler is also quite loud on idle. I would definitely recommend an aftermarket cooler if you plan to purchase this cpu.

Pros

Fast, works with DDR2 memory from my dead mother board.
Cons
Won't work in my planned new AM3 board but honestly, I don't really care.
Summary
I run it overclocked at 3.3GHz using the Asus built in profile in the M4A78-EM board I picked up cheap locally when my M2N32-SLI Deluxe died. It's fast, snappy, only 0.1GHz away from a 965 at stock speed so I'm a happy camper... I also happened to get it on sale so it was a no brainer. I had intended to upgrade my M2N board but as I said, the board died while the CPU was in transit so I picked up the M4A78 as a quick/cheap replacement that would let me use my old ram (OCZ Platinum Rev.2). I'd buy it again in a heartbeat.

Pros

Very easy to install, runs pretty cool with stock cooler - stay's within 40 to 50 degree range under full load - not overclocked yet, got a fair deal.
Cons
I'm not sure yet if it's my board or the cpu or me but overclocking is nonexistant as of yet - can't overclock at all as I get overclocking failure message in bios, tried different settings and no go. I'm upgrading my board shortly and will see if any difference. Note - I'm a long time tech but new to overclocking so might not be a weakness at all.
Summary
Runs fast just as it is, a real noticeable difference in scanning other computers while i'm doing my own thing. I'm fairly pleased with this purchase and the express shipping was great, ordered Friday and received Monday in Northern Ontario. NCIX is my new #1 place to shop.

Good CPU Good Price,.
Cons
slowdows
Summary
I pruchased this for my father's PC.
so far i had no complaints. Works well does the job nice and quickly. Might not be on par with Intel but it's still worth the price.

Pros

Quad-Core
Price
Handles anything you throw at it
Cons
None
Summary
What can I say that hasn't already been said. For an AMD Quad-Core 940BE, this processor is fast, runs cool with aftermarket HSF, and will handle anything you throw at it. With it been a BE, easily overclocked to 3.4 - 3.6 with aftermarket HSF with no noticeable increase in temperatures and voltages, paired with a Gigabyte MA790X-UD4P motherboard.

Pros

Easy installation
Cheap
Stock cooler seems fine.
Cons
None so far.
Summary
The CPU was easy to install along with the cooler on a Gigabyte motherboard. It's really fast. This CPU rips through any game you'll throw at it.

Pros

Quad core, AMD price and 3ghz
Cons
none known
Summary
This is an upgrade for me from the AMD dual core 6400+ and I did see an increase in performance in just about everything. I am happy with this product. Kicks butt!
