Summary: compared to my old processor this is like an enchanted diamond studded 14 k gold box full of money boobs and vagina's, but then again my old processor was 1.47 ghz. i have only been using this one for a couple weeks and it still feels like magic.
Summary: 4 stars! Only to leave room for improvement. But I'm rather happy thus far with this purchase. (From AMD Phenom II x4 820 to 6300). Package arrived quickly and prompt with no noticeable damage. Wifi speeds increased about 2 Mbps. Frame rate increased in games.
Summary: I originally had this chip paired with a GTX 660, the performance was up to par with what I expected out of the card. Ran most games on High - Ultra. After a lot of reading online, I bought a GTX 780, under the impression the CPU would not bottleneck it.
Pros: Stable 4.5GHZ clock on air cooling. Good price.
Cons: Single threaded performance. This will bottleneck a higher end GPU in CPU intensive games.
Summary: The thing runs great! I found out one of the cores was faulty and I sent it back and got a new one that worked. AMD costumer service in my opinion is great. (and i have an extra AMD sticker on my case ;P )The stock heat sink is fine but I'm going to upgrade to a cooler master hyper 212 evo.
Summary: Upgraded from Phenom II 965 Processor. System: FX 6300 Processor Asrock Extreme4 970 Board Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz OCZ 600 Watt PSU 80+ Bronze AMD Radeon 7870XT Graphics Processor I read reviews claiming this was a nice upgrade from phenom II's, I sort of doubted them, but was interested in...
Very good bang for you buck. The most performance for the money you can buy.

Summary: This CPU has very good performance for only being 115$. And this is a great processor to use in budget builds. It's closest competitor the Intel i3 is slower than the FX6300 during processes that use multiple cores by a good little margin.
