I bought this as part of a bundle with an AM2+ motherboard for a bugdet gaming build for my Dad. Was originally purchased in "used" condition. I ran it for about two weeks in his Biostar MCP6P M2+ as a "stand-in", temporary solution while we waited to get his Phenom II X4. Ran perfect, no errors in Prime95 testing; and was super-cool under his Hyper TX3 cooler with only a generic 80mm rear exhaust case fan in an mATX case (hit a maximum of 36°C @ full load temp using CoreTemp & HWMonitor). Cosmectically, the CPU looks great; with no bent pins and a near-flawless "face" (see pic below).
According to reviews, these chips supposedly overclock really well (~3GHz on stock air; maybe even a little more when paired with the right mobo and a half-decent aftermarket cooler) due to its lower TDP of only 65W compared to their 89W Windsor brethren (never tried OC'ing this particular chip personally, however). Might make for a nice energy-efficient, dual-core solution for an HTPC, NAS box, or backup/general-purpose family computer.
This is an OEM/Tray processor, and no heatsink/fan, retail box, or anything like that is included. Bare CPU only.
