Ive never had that issue. I had my order finished in less then 2 minutes after I found the deal.Nice, but the SuperBiiz website is excruciating to navigate.
I'm fairly certain I've seen paint dry quicker than these pages transition.
<EDIT> 5 minutes, and I'm still waiting for the CART to load. Any page I click, within eWiz, just waits and waits. They must have a server issue.
link is for a dual core, not quad core.
it's an x2, not a phenom 2...these cannot be unlocked as there is nothing to unlock.
Its an old Windsor core Athlon 64 x2. Wont unlock.what about the 6000+ on ewiz for a few bucks more? starts out with a higher clock with a higher multi.
And to add to the deal, you can get a CM Hyper 212+ for $24 shipped with the same code.
is this cpu faster than say a e5200? overclock alot?
Clock for clock, this is slower. When you unlock it, though, it will be faster clock for clock. It will overclock as high as your motherboard can take it. The mobo will be your limiting factor. On a quality motherboard, you might top out at 3.1-3.2ghz.
That board wont work. This is an AM2+ CPU, wont work in AM3 boards.
Id recomend the 790X-UD4P. Great board for less then $100. Took a Sempron 140 I had unlocked to 4Ghz easy.
Should have no trouble getting ~300FSB or so from this.
