AMD Overdrive technology makes for easy overclocking.

Cons

Needs aftermarket cooling for any extensive overclocking--can heat up to almost 50 C.

1 agrees

Well-known TLB B2 error can cause system crashes with heavy load.

1 agrees

Dated compared to AMD's newer AM3 quad and hexacore offerings.

1 agrees

Only compatible with older versions of AMD's Overdrive software--newer versions don't affect clock speeds at all.

Edit

 

The AMD Phenom X4 9500 was the slowest of the two AMD first-generation quad core processors initially released. Due to the TLB bug found within the first B2 stepping release, however, the release of the chip was met with lackluster fanfare. While still a considerable powerhouse CPU, the 9500 was replaced with a later B3 stepping core and renamed the 9550.
