A while to live with this baby yet...

Radiophonic Fretless, Amazon
4 October 2015
  • Summary: Stunningly good processor - have used for 2 or 3 years now - just gave her a HUGE new lease of life (read on) ... DO NOT REPLACE THIS PROCESSOR UNTIL YOU'VE TRIED THIS: If you're still using hard disk drives, then, at very least, replace your system/boot drive with an SSD (solid state) device.

My Last AMD

Roxanne C., Newegg
29 August 2014
  • Pros: AMD at one point was.. closer to Intel in terms of speed. But now that the gap has gotten bigger, it's worth spending another $100+ to get a lot more speed! Price per Performance just isn't there anymore with AMDs.
  • Cons: Slow, Eats up power. Hot

Good Quad core for the money

freakazoid67216, Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: I was looking for a decent processor for a secondary build that I was wanting to work on and found this. It is a good processor. And since several games out there need a quad core or higher to run, this was the perfect one to pick.

Bang for your Buck!

Eric V., Newegg
26 August 2013
  • Summary: High power usage is kinda a con but you can tweak that if your not putting a heavy work-load on it.
  • Pros: Price Price Price!! performance is amazing, the price is a huge kicker.
  • Cons: stock cooler was SCARY to put on..very very tight fit but I guess you want good contact for good cooling. stock fan is super loud even when at idle. but with a fast chip like this you should prob get an aftermarket cooler anyhow.

processor

Marcos Sweeney, Amazon
29 July 2013
  • Summary: I was under the assumption it would be an improved fan, but LOL nah. Upon installation and playing Grand Theft Auto 4 on maxed graphics, the fan would spin up and make an insanely loud noise almost as if it was winding up to shoot right out of my case, along with my CPU reaching temps of 85C after...
