    Wow, pretty affordable. When I clicked on the link I expected a $300 CPU. L2 cache could be better. I expect at least 1MB per core in this day and age. Although, unlocked multipliers are nice, real nice.

    So what can a Brisbane do on air? Is it worth getting (and ddr2 and mobo.) at this time?
    If I could get 3Ghz stable on one of these, I might take the jump.

    Other than the low price of DDR2 nowadays, this CPU and others like it are making me think a switch to AM2 platform might not be a bad idea. If only AMD CPUs could "grow up" and pick up them clock speeds a little and maybe fatten themselves up with some additional L2 cache. 512KB per core is not going to do it. Heck, 1MB is not that much.

    My brisbane works well on my Freezer....38-42 degress load...depends on how hot it is in my room. And i can hit 3GHz+ but my Ram is holding me from it...and i could probaly get more but i dont know if my mobo could take it...so the unlocked multi on that would be interesting in my comp:p
