Good value and excellent clock speed
on 17 May 2012
This processor was recommended to me by the review site tomsharware.com, it has a vary high clock speed and is easily overclocked (Not recommended with the stock cooler). The processor itself runs cool even with the cooler in the box and I find it easily handles multitasking. I play a lot of games and find it to function fine and rarely get hot, you should be able to play all modern games on this with a good GPU. The cooler that comes with it is quite loud but functions well and if you wanted a better cooler would be quieter and allow overclocking.
Overall the Athlon II x3 455 has great performance for the price.
