Summary: Recently replaced a number of parts in my tower, upgraded it for gaming, so far it works great. Have only had my tower up and running for a bit over a week though so far. Shipment of this processor and my GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB arrived pretty quick too.
Summary: high clock speed and you can over clock it like crazy. I can hit 4.5 and run it there for hours but to do that get a better cooler the stock fan and heat sink will allow the heat to creep up but its error free at all the speeds I have tried.
Summary: This is a very nice budget processor. If you can get this for $90 or less. If not go for the fx 6300, it has 2 extra cores and is usually around $110. I have the fx6300 and it is a great processor for my gaming rig. I bought the fx4300 for my htpc build. I had an extra AM3+ mother board and wanted to us it. This is actually a very nice processor with very good performance. No it cannot compete with intel i5 or i7 but it is not meant to do so.
