Is the Phenom II the best CPU AMD has ever made?

>Released in 2009
>Much cheaper than Intel
>Still good enough to use their quad cores in 2016 without bottlenecks
>>
AMD is for poorfags
>>
I'm still using a Phenom II x4 955 Black Edition here
>>
The Phenom II were a better choice than the Core 2 Quad, but now it's outdated and outclassed by modern CPUs like Skylake and soon Zen.
>>
II x4 965, still working.
>>
II 965 BE w/ 980ti and 16GB reporting in
>>
>without bottlenecks

Lel get a load of this guy.
>>
>>52973769
my Phenom II x4 830 bottlenecks the fuck out of me, although I could OC it
>>
>>52974000
If you pair it with a 980ti or R9 390 yeah, but a 270x or GTX 760 is just fine with it.
>>
Athlon 64 was the best cpu amd ever made.
>>
955 BE since 4 years here without any problems.
>>
>>52973865
>Tfw can't overclock mines past 3.4ghz

I've seen people with 4ghz overclocks on air but mines gets unstable past 3.4 unless I turn up the voltage to the point where I can feel the heat in the room.
>>
>>52973865
A $15 Pentium G2030 outperforms it.
>>
>>52973769
This is not the 2500k
>>
>>52974174
In emulators maybe, but in everything else no. Enjoy multitasking with a dual core.
>>
>>52973769
965BE at 3.7ghz here. Still does the job nicely
>>
>>52973865
Same here dude. Beauty of a cpu
>>
>>52974250
I do.
>>
>>52973769
I had a Phenom II back in the first PC I built in 2010

>Phenom II X4 965
>Radeon 4870
>4GB DDR3 1600 RAM
>M4A79XTD EVO Motherboard
>500W PSU

It was god tier and lasted me for like half a decade before I upgraded everything and gave the old parts to my dad.
>>
>>52973769
I have 965 BE and my friend had 955. Otherwise great CPU, but we both had this exact problem where our CPUs would just freeze about hour after first power up of the day. After hard reset it newer does it again until it has been powered off for a while. Ridiculous error if you ask me and we couldn't figure out what causes it or how we could avoid it.
>>
>>52973769
It's a good one. Hopefully AMDs new 32 core ZEN cpus will stir shit up in the processor market.
>>
I have a Phenom II 920 x4 at 3.8GHz. I think I paid $70 for it back in 2009.
>>
>>52973769
945 here, I want to change it for one that emits less heat. I'm the guy who posted >>52974671.
That said, performance-wise it's great. And unlike FX series, these have the amount of physical cores they declare.
>>
>>52974174
lel no

>>52974630
mobo issue maybe? Although you most likely have different ones.
>>
>>52974934
Your newfag is showing...
>>
>still using 970BE and a 6870
>still runs newer games at 1080p60 with medium/high settings

I'll miss my budget poorfag system when I retire it
>>
Yup, sounds about right.

I still have my Phenom II X4 970 from 2010 and it still runs everything I throw at it like a dream.
>>
>>52973815
>I have money
OK. great. I'm poor but at least I'm not autistically retarded and piss money out on computer parts.
>>
>>52977172
>still runs newer games at 1080p60 with medium/high settings

You are delusional grandpa

Unless you consider 5 year old games as newer
>>
>>52977364
>implying
nowadays the bottleneck tends to be the GPU and that one is pretty solid
>>
>>52973769
Phenom II Quad core here.

Holding out for Zen. 16 cores minimum for me, intelfaggoteers.
>>
>>52979763
>cores
I don't think that word means what AMD thinks it means. For example I wouldn't call a bulldozer a octacore
>>
>>52973769
Phenom II 940BE here. I've gotten it as high as 3.75ghz, but even so I need 1.5v to get there, and the board its on is not designed to handle that kind of power draw, as evidenced when I finally charred the CPU power plug socket from the power draw. Almost fried the board.
>>
>>52973865
this bad boy right here

will probably replace it once zen hits though, we shall see

>>52974134
what cooler are you using? this is on 212 evo, i had to turn up the voltage just a little bit, like .05 V i think

buy a noctua you dumb fuckhead

>>52983738
My problem is that it heats the room, I've managed to keep it kinda cool by using the conservative governor but if I could get something with a lower TDP, that would be great.
>>
Still running a 965 Black :v

Probably helps that I only play Eve and MGSV.
