Excellent and versatile processor,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AMD Phenom II X4 Quad 955 Core 3.2GHz Processor 4 x 512 KB Boxed - Black Edition (Personal Computers)
Well what can I say, I bought this with a motherboard for a little more than a package deal from PC World. What did I get? I got a considerably superior product, with the versatility to fit into both my current motherboard AM2+ socket and an AM3 socket should I upgrade my motherboard and RAM in the future.
The box includes a CPU, fitting instructions and a heatsink/fan with thermal grease already applied. Fitting it was simple and easy and all went smoothly, though as with most fans on this socket it was a tight fit.
Performance wise, it is what it says it is really and all the reviews speak highly, at the time of writing an upper-mid range processor. Then again I was going from a Athlon X2 3600+ dual core processor running at 2.01 GHz to this so I'd been prepared to be wowed. Being a Black Edition it's easily overclocked though with my current PSU and the stock heatsink I didn't take it past 3.5GHz.
Given the price, the performance and the versatility with socket this is an excellent buy for anyone considering upgrading their CPU.

I run this Processor with this after market cooler, a little better than stock.
I overclocked this to 4GHz, running at 57 oC which isn't too bad :) and that is stable. A better cooler would allow a better OC though without a doubt. I run it on 3.6-3.8 normally
