Amd Athlon 2 X4 620 CPU

I thought I’d post a review of the latest processor I put in my machine. I’m a little disappointed in how loud my PSU is but I haven’t heard my stock HSF wind up yet. I used the AMD overclocking tool to get it to around 2700MHZ but it crashed about 20 minutes into a session of Left 4 Dead. So I am just letting it run stock.


This is a pretty decent CPU, for 90$ you get alot of performance especially if you overclock the CPU a little bit. It performs better than 905e in stock performance and cost almost half the price. This CPU should do well in HTPC setups and even in normal setups where you need a CPU that doesnt use alot of power, it remains cooler and uses less electricity with its 95W. Four cores at 2,6GHz and 2MB cache is quite nice for 90$, I don’t think I can say anything more as the numbers speak for themselves. 90$ of performance!
