Installed processor and heatsink/fan supplied quite easily (the fan is always a bit of a fiddle but clipped on and tightened with the lever OK). The fan is a touch noisier than I expected, but I think I can live with it. The processor runs at around 47 degrees C.

Scores 5.9 on Windows Vista Experience index and 2405 in the Passmark benchmark, which is the same as the Intel Dual Core E8500 costing £150! So its a very decent workhorse.

I tried to unlock the fourth core of the processor (using Gigabyte AM3 motherboard software) - and it reported it as a Phenom II X4 B50 but wouldn't run properly. So that was my tough luck, but its probably just as well, because oveclocking seems to muck up the temperature reporting and I'd have been constantly worried about it!

  • Overall 4*
  • Ease of use 5*
  • Value for money 4*
