This is a very affordable triple core processor running at 3.2Ghz per core, which is by stock and I have achieved much better results then this. This processor is very good for someone who want to build a computer for gaming and video editing, It renders video very quick when using CamtasiaStudio. Its an awesome processor, the stock heat sink this processor comes in is very good I could use it up to 3.5Ghz per core and the temperatures were decent. This processor socket is the AM3 socket which many affordable motherboards have, I have created a powerful gaming building using this processor for just under £300, if your in the market for an affordable but reliable and powerful processor this is a very ideal processor for you, its also very simple to install, the heat sink also comes with pre applied thermal compound. It only takes around 5 mins to install this processor, it works so well with Windows 7 Ultimate. I would certainty recommend this product.
