  • Summary: Bought for a sub $500 1080p gaming system, paired with r9 280... extremely satisfied aside from the cooler
  • Pros: Caught during a discount for sub one hundred dollars Clocks well, good performance boost in dx12 for Rise of Tomb Raider
  • Cons: That stock cooler gets so much whine during some games I can hear it even while wearing a headset I didn't get a free Hitman code T__T

Great Budget CPU

  • Summary: This is a very good processor at this price. It does very well with gaming. Just understand that this is NOT a top-end CPU. It is a budget CPU. For high end gaming on a high end GPU, you need an i5 or i7. The FX-6300 will bottleneck your GTX 970+ or R9 380+.

  • Summary: I have used many of these processors in client builds since they dropped below the $130 mark. If you couple it with a good heatsink such as the Hyper 212 Evo or an AIO liquid cooler, you can push some pretty crazy overclocks out of it.
  • Pros: I recommend this processor for anyone wanting to spend less than $600 on a gaming PC due to the rising support for multi-core processors in modern games, and upcoming API's such as DX12. It performs great in games like GTA 5 and pretty much any game that uses 4 cores or more. -Amazing overclocker...
  • Cons: Stock cooler cut my hand. Guess it knew I wasn't going to be using it anyway. Oh well. Puts out a pretty heavy amount of power and heat. Gotta have a good power supply to start overclocking on this. And you're going to want to overclock. You'll be tempted, peer pressure will run strong. But once ...

Good for budget builds

  • Summary: I used the FX-6300 for a budget build for a friend ( FX-6300, 8GB RAM, R7-260X, 1TB HDD, no SDD, etc.) who just wanted something for typical use and some light-to moderate gaming, and didn't want to spend a ton of money, I though about going the APU route, but the FX-6300 + R7 260X combo was only...
  • Pros: - Good price to performance ratio - it's been around forever (proven reliability)
  • Cons: - runs hot even at stock clocks, and the stock cooler is a joke - it's been around forever (outdated)
