Ditto, got a Phenom2 555BE and unlocked to a QuadCore B55 @ 3.6GHZ, stable 24/7 for 2 years now. Paid $80 for this CPU. It will be a sad day when AMD is no longer providing alternatives to Intel's CPU's.. but I've already decided to buy an Intel next time I upgrade.. unless something drastic changes with AMD's lineup between now and then.
