Summary: I got this processor to go in a whitebox test platform. Put it in a M5A99X EVO R2.0 ASUS motherboard along with 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance modules and a Antec BP550 Plus 550W ATX12V power supply. Everything worked well together and got the machine up and running in no time.

Summary: I purchased the FX-6100 as part of my desktop upgrade. I needed speed at an affordable price so this chip was a fit for me. I use my PC for video editing, picture editing, browsing online, and streaming movies.
Summary: Pros: I have used this with two MBs so far and did not need to upgrade the BIOS first for either one... gotta love that. Easy to OC (I'm running 3.8 without any heat or stress. Will probably pop it up to 4.0 soon, but everything is running super fast as-is, so no hurry. Cons: None...
Summary: For the money, this is a tough processor to beat. Performs well and is durable. Have not overclocked, but I have not need to. Performs well and is stable. Not sure why people waste money on Intel products. It is like the pressure to wear name brand clothing.
Summary: I can't believe i didn't give AMD a chance before now, Ultimate performance with great value also the cooling fan looks better than Intel cheap crap, i don't know about how runs cooler but this product blow my mind i didn't expect it to be this good.
Summary: So I was skeptical about buying this to put in a custom gaming computer because of all the negative reviews. Honestly, I am able to throw anything at this processor, and it handles it like a charm. I am able to run games such as BF3 on ultra settings, and run at a very very stable temperature.
Summary: I wanted to build a new system that rocks, and the prices started creeping up a bit, so I went with AMD vs Intel, and this is a beast. I am using it with the ASRock 990FX EXTREME3, 16BG of Vengence RAM, OCZ vertex 4 SSD, an EVGA GeForce GTS 450 and a Antec Dark Fleet DF-85. It kicks Butt!
