Considering that this CPU is currently costing around 80 usd on aliexpress & ebay, outperforms an 3970x intel i7 and officially supports 4 channel DDR3 RAM at up to 1866mhz, it's really hard to beat the value of this chip. Possibly the best price to performance of any used CPU in the market today, in 2020.
