Pros
AMD reliability
45nm chip
OC to Phenom 2 965
Lots of cache
Cons
Not many quad core application support
Summary
Very responsive, scales to meet application demands being
energy efficient. High performance. Competitive pricing is great for pc users. Nice AMD overdrive software allows overclocking tweaking, monitoring performance and temperature.

Pros
-Fast
-Fits my budget
Cons
None so far
Summary
I purchased this CPU to replace my old P4 ... what a big different.

I can converted a same movie in less than 1/2 of the time it used to take.
Multiple programs running is not an issue anymore.
I turned OFF 'Cool and Quiet' feature in bios and instantly getting 7.3 (up from 6.9) in windows 7's experience index.
Great CPU performance for budget build in mind.

Pros
Quad core, great price, fast.`
Cons
none so far
Summary
Wow what a great chip. I have bought two of these so far. I overclocked them to 3.6 without adding any voltage so I'm sure that it won't shorten their lifespan any. As usual AMD products are easy to install and perform great.

Pros
Blazing Fast, Cheaper then Intel
Cons
None
Summary
This cpu works flawlessly and is pretty fast. It's a pretty close match to Intel's i7 920, considering the price difference I went with AMD.
Overall very satisfied.

Pros
Performance and reliability for the price
Cons
* No SMT (Simultaneous MultiThreading, 1 Core = 1 Thread).
* Difficulty Scaling Pas 4GHz On 64 Bit OS
* AM3 Socket Only Allows North/South Orientation For Tower Style HSF.
Summary
AMD fanboys and girls, put on your bibs because your about to be drooling. Unlocked mulitplier...nuf said for me. With a nice cooling system you can have fun oc'ing. I've never burned an amd while oc'ing and with the access to the mulitplier you can get good numbers.

Pros
* High Clock Speed
* Unlocked Multiplier (Black Edition)
* Very Competitive Pricing
Cons
* No SMT (Simultaneous MultiThreading, 1 Core = 1 Thread).
* Difficulty Scaling Pas 4GHz On 64 Bit OS
* AM3 Socket Only Allows North/South Orientation For Tower Style HSF.
Summary
It's no secret that AMD is not competitive with Intel at the high end of the market. Where they win, and as a consumer I hold myself as an example, is the midrange.

I was able to build an entire system for hundreds less than I would have otherwise and the 955 performs extremely well. Anyone who feels like it can run the numbers on a review site, but I will give a subjective review here. I work with a core i7 920 at 3GHz regularly (with Vista SP2, 6GB DDR31066, 4350) and with this CPU at 3.2 GHz regularly (with 7, 4 GB DDR1333, 5870). I find the system with the 955 and Windows 7 to be more responsive.

The reviews will say the 955 loses in synthetic benchmarks but that the gaming tests are neck and neck. Well, again subjectively, I can't tell the difference.

This is a solid CPU at a great price. It can overclock very well and has the advantage (if you see it that way) of supporting competition in the market place.

I'd buy it again, presuming I was on a budget.

Pros
-Price and performance compared to Intel
-Stock Quadcore 3.2Ghz.
-Runs cool with tower coolers.
-Fast.
Cons
-Stock heatsink and fan too noisy.
Summary
Installed this to run a HTPC. The speed is amazing. You'll need to install better heatsink to keep temp down. Multitasking without any slowdown or lag. Great CPU. First own an AMD.
