Very good CPU. Best that you would need for a moderate gaming PC

Summary: I'm enjoying this CPU so far. I only recommend this for gaming because it DOES NOT COME WITH INTEGRATED GRAPHICS. I know this when I was buying it though. It's a lot lower of a price because of the lack of iGPU. Great value.
Great CPU, crappy stock cooler (though all stock coolers are crappy anyways)

Summary: Good price and performance. I have this CPU in an ITX build with an 7770 and I have no complaints about performance. The stock cooler is pretty terrible though. I will freely admit that I am a bit anal when it comes to noise and my computer and the fan is always noticeable. I'm sure for most people they will hardly recognize it over a room's ambient noise but I have gotten used to my PCs being extremely quite if not silent so I place high importance on sound.
Summary: I have been a long time supporter of AMD. All of my builds use their chips. All of the cores fire fine & I have had many of their chips for years. I've never used the supplied cooler, so don't know anything about them. I'd rather have the extra cooling, just in case.
Summary: I installed it right away and amazed with its quickness. It's a really agile processor. It plays all the games that I play. I have been using it for my online work now. It is eating up all the tasks given to it. It runs smoothly with 2 browsers opened (with 7 tabs of open webpages each) plus 5 other programs running. It works without sweat. I'd definitely recommend it to everyone I know.
