i bought the 965 in the 70's from newegg a month or two ago. It breathed new life into my older AM2 system. However, slickdeals made me buy a new laptop for 400 bux that blows the desktop out of the water. So it has been sitting there, about to go on craigslist I think.

This isnt really a deal, more like what a 3 year old processor should retail for. Imo this processor isnt worth more than $70.

It is old; I grant you that BUT it still is a very good processor especially for the price. The Intel chips are twice as good but you pay twice the price; how fast do you need to go?

I've got my 965 (paid $90) cranked up to 4.0ghz with air cooling with no problems whatsoever. I primarily do video editing and rendering using 2 SSD drives and a 1 TB storage drive with 8gb RAM. This system blazes; sure it would be great to be even faster but just not necessary for me.

If you have a 965 X4 working in your AM2 board, then it's not used to its capabilities. A AM2 board will limit the performance of the 965 X4.

Offically, it works in AM3, AM2+, AM3+ boards. Which CPU is in your laptop?

You can most likely substitute me for most and your statement remains true. Implicit "SlickDeal'ing" often involves waiting for older generation technology to reduce price before buying, so please everyone save your recommendations for third gen i5 CPU's and just keep it moving ;)

Its AM2+

My laptop has an A6. Once the laptop gets old, I will go AM3 or whatever the new standard is at that time.

something like a A6-3400M has a passmark score of 2017, a 965 X4 has a passmark score 4405, so it should easily outperform a A6-3400M.

Personally I'd go with a 955 since it's physically the same processor as the 965 but with a different multiplier which is unlocked anyway.

I own a 955 and with a pretty low end aftermarket CPU cooler, I was to overclock it to 3.8 GHz. With better cooling one can reach the 4.0 Ghz range.

I plan on an amd build as well, but the fx-6300 is only $140 and its brand new, to go with the 965 It has to be $70-80 for me to bite. Also over the summer the 965 dropped to $70, so if Ill get it Im gonna wait for it to get there again.

something does not seem to add up because the a6 cpu cores are just die shrunk of the same architecture the phenom II is based on. Thus they have very similar performance when evenly clocked. What may have improved is your graphics because the a6 is a apu with a gpu built in and I do not know what graphics are in your desktop but since it is am2+ it could be something pretty old

I think the phenom II have stayed high is because the fx chips are barely faster then the phenom II and not worth the premium

Glad to see Newegg finally matching MicroCenter's price on that cpu....which MC has had for months.

Good deal for those without a MC near. Now if only Newegg would give you a free mb like MC does with the cpu.......

The AMD 965 is a very good chip, but not at this price. I am using the 965 now. Overclock to 3.9 Ghz with basic air cooling. I paid $69.99 a few month back.

Yes. The CPU score for the 965 X4 is 4405, the A6-3400M has a passmark score of 2017 Just looking at stock speeds for the two CPUs, and ignoring the other hardware, the 965 X4 is a much better performer

HyperTransport speed is better with an AM3 board, and the ram is DDR2 on a AM2+ versus DDR3 on a AM3.

A 965 X4 is more comparable to a third gen i3.

Thanks for the stats to back up my statement. All the more reason why the guy claiming his laptop was faster than a phenom II desktop

I would buy from Amazon (I did a month and a half ago at the same price). That way you know that you're getting the retail version. I almost pulled the trigger at Tiger Direct before I realized that it didn't come with the heatsink or fan.

The AMD 965 BE is a great little chip. TD had them on sale with no rebate a couple of months ago for only $69.99 AND they also threw in a free TT CPU Cooler. Was an excellent deal.
