AMD Phenom II X4 945 - Phenom II X4 Deneb Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 95W Processor - HDX945WFGIBOX

Pros: price for the potential. and 95w version from amd's website says it will max temp at 71c. so good room for over clocking.

Cons: zero atm

Overall Review: stock heatsink got it to 3450mhz without any trouble. Just put a cooler master N 520 heatsink on. now at 3.6ghz and working on 3.8ghz.

Great backup battery

Energizer - Protective Case w/ Built-in Battery for iPhone (AP1500)

Pros: -Charges battery about 80%

Cons: Don't even attempt to use as an everyday case.

Overall Review: Don't use this as a case. but as a backup battery when your out somewhere and your phone is about to die or dangerously low. Charge the phone and when the battery case doesn't have a charge, take it off.

Pros: Keeps temps low. Gives great Overclocking potential if the CPU is up to the challenge.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: -AMD 945 95w -cooler Master N520 -MSI 790FX-GD70 CPU- 3.81 ghz O/C idle temp- 28-29c Load temp- 52-54c prime 95 games never usually hit over 48c and that only if it is stressing it pretty hard.

Amazing chip

Pros: Price / Potential / AMD. Very good Overclocker.

Overall Review: Bought 4 of these bad boys for various builds. Recently with the MSI 760GM-E51 AM3 motherboard. with literally two switches flipped on motherboard clock the Athlon x4 at 3.1ghz and it was very stable. even acouple that have seen 3.4-3.5ghz factory heatsink with Bios O/Cing. very Impressive.
