Experience: 1 Years

great cpu for gaming


easy OC
quad core
good clock speed
bought this as a slight upgrade to my phenom ii 955 excellent CPU

Experience: 3 Years


great speeds
can oc easy
runs pretty cool
fast cpu, great oc possibilities at an unbeatable price. Runs pretty cool and so far so good. Love the cpu!

Experience: 10 Months


none for the price
Bought this chip for my budget PC. Can't say anything bad about it as it performs well. Especially for it's price. Recommended for your budget needs!

Experience: 1 Years


Despite relatively old, this CPU is great for the price. It's still good enough to play modern games. It would be good for making a very inexpensive upgrade for AM3 capable motherboards.
It's power usage isn't that bad with C3 stepping.
It can be overclocked relatively easily.
This cpu is getting old, and does not work in the current line of AMD motherboards. If you want to invest in a good, newer motherboard, then this is not the CPU for you. This cpu is not as energy efficient as any comparable CPU's by intel, and so uses more power and creates more heat than other comparable CPUs.
Good as an upgrade for those with AM3 motherboards who currently have much slower CPU's (like dual core cpus or much slower athlon II cpus).
Still good enough to play modern games with a decent videocard.

Experience: 1 Years


Fast, cheap.
None really.
I've owned one or two of these myself, and used them in dozens of builds for customers. They have always been a value-based alternative to the faster Intel chips. They are great processors - I'd definitely suggest spending money on getting an SSD or upgraded video card before upgrading to a faster Intel chip.

Experience: 1 Months


Low price / good speed
none for that price
very nice cpu for the price, runs at 25c with basic fan, would recommend

Experience: 2 Months


Very good for the price
stock heatsink isnt the best. recommend upgrading. cheap thermal paste
Have been running this cpu nonstop for 2 months now paired with a Gtx650 and 8Gb Ripjaws, and so far handles anything I throw at it. Would definately recommend buying if you are looking for a dependable yet affordable cpu

Experience: 2 Years


Still rocking same as the day I got it
weak compared to todays processors, runs a bit hot on air.
Still rocking as day one, only complain it runs a bit hot on air, which tends to make the fans loud, but switching it with antec 920 solved the problem. Been 2 to 3 years since I got this CPU, and its still working like a charm.

Experience: 3 Months


Fan is quiet
Powerful enough even for though uses
Does not overheat
Multithreading works great
It was a pain to install the hardware
Great processor, and even better for the value. I was on a budget and chose AMD over Intel. I do not regret this decision. It was at 90$ in November 2012, less than half the price of a similar Intel CPU. Paired with my 1GB video card, it runs games very satisfactorily, albeit not at max graphics. However, it was a pain to get it to clip unto the motherboard. You must apply a lot of pressure (only use hands please!), I was worried it would break, but it didn't.

Experience: 2 Weeks


Yes this is an old CPU , but this guy is really powerful .89$ for this unit is an awesome price.This is my second p ii x4 965 BE CPU , I bought one 3 years back from India
No Cons.
This is a best CPU for gaming, video editing ,audio editing etc .
use 64 bit os and 8GB memory , you can have a beautiful system without spending too much money.

Comment: X-Bit labs review of the C3 125W stepping of the Phenom II X4 965BE: An improvement with lower TDP and higher OC'ing potential. But Intel still has better performing (but more expensive) processors.
