I bought this CPU for my wife's computer- the best deal in years. This CPU does a great job at any task (office and videos), and most importantly, it can be used in a fan less set-up (eg. home theater).
Indeed, I never bother to install the Fan on my heatsink, as I was curious to see how hot it could get; it simply never gets hot! Needless to say that this is not the heat sink provided by AMD (too noisy), its just a regular heat sink that can purchased for 30$.

With two cores, which is sufficient for most people, it does the job and more!

great cpu! for the price, nothing can stand in its way. it runs cool, overclocks nicely and it is fast.

after stress testing it, it never went over 40c, it like staying at 39c (note: room temp was 24) it ran stable at 3.5ghz at stock voltage, and stable at 3.75ghz with the smallest voltage increase. (.025v)

cant beat its price/perform.

its like an ati.... wonder why its so good?
