I have it since 6 Years and it stil works (But don't buy it! Its to old!)


5 years ago.

anyone who says it is not overclockable, it IS in fact overclockable. you just need a compatible motherboard. (Asus's P5KPL-AM for example.) 3.37GHz with +150mv runs as stable as stock.

Probably the best value performance CPU you can get back then. It's still used commonly for office PC at this day provided you install SSD first to cover very weak processor performance!


15 months ago.

just overclocked it to 3.66ghz (11x333mhz) ..works great with new ssd and cheap radeon hd5450 (60fps 1080p in youtube) Win7 64bit. didnt play any games. completly satisfied.

La CPU è ancora discreta con Windows 10 a 64 bit

The CPU was great then, but now in 2022 it can run light games

I know this proccessor is very old like it was make in 2009...this mean is 11 years old but i'm sure it work just fine but the downside is no longer support exploit protection but you can disable it to improve some performance & can still use some modern computer like Windows 7, 8.1 or 10 but just make sure you enable high performance to avoid slow down, This processor is great to use like office PC or Old potato gaming PC but...it has to play with the compatable one, most modern games won't work in it, it will crash your computer even you starting the game on it. Trust me it worth only a small chance to using an old processor for decade.

It works kind of good with gt 210

(edit your comment) - what? just because I am from same country as other user, doesn't mean it was me.

Yeah, still pretty good and works nice! :)
