Average overclocker,good renderer,multitasker,hot and bad multi GPU gamer!

  • Summary: This OEM part is indeed somehow better on thermals than the retail box version.Please be aware that this processor can only safely withstand temperatures around 62C,way lower than the Intel competitors.This means that if you intend to OC it(and to catch up to similarly priced Intel processors you will need a 10-15% OC),you will absolutely need to buy an aftermarket heatsink or water cooler.

Overheating problems

José Colina, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: This CPU on itself is great, it's a beast. But the overheating is absurd. On stock settings it gets far beyond the 80°C mark on most games, even not particularly demanding ones. Even my Motherboard's BIOS setup makes this thing overheat. Because of this, my Motherboard just broke because during a BIOS update this thing decided to suddenly overheat and shut down making a big $150 brick out of my mobo, so no, I don't recommend it to anyone.

Still going strong!

  • Summary: I am currently running this processor at about 4.215GHz and the computer never seems to bottlekneck. Even with 2 virtual linux machines, a dozen chrome tabs, and a game running. I currently have this paired with 16 gigs of ddr3 and a ASUS Crosshair V motherboard.

great cpu and deal

Jameson Strong, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: Got this on a deal around Christmas for $200 and I got the cpu and liquid cooling together in the package. It's a closed loop system which was nice since it was the first liquid cooling system I've put together. It was a major upgrade from what I had before. Easy to install and no complaints and fantastic when on a strict budget.

The water block noise!

Michael, Amazon
24 January 2014
  • Summary: Pro: Water cooling works great. Nice control program. Cons: Waterblock has a weird tick when its running. hasn't seemed to cause any issues with cooling just kind of makes me wonder how long it will last!

Comp freezes after moments of being powered on

Jacob Hanson, Amazon
27 December 2013
  • Summary: I won this processor from a drawing that AMD donated for. Tried using the computer and it would work for a very short time and would immediately lock up. I have replaced absolutely every part individually on the computer and once I tried a different processor the computer worked perfectly fine. I have tried getting a hold of AMD for some kind of RMA or anything to no avail. Because I did not actually buy it or something they don't seem to care.

  • Summary: Got this at a great price, installed it with ease.. no issues what so ever. The water cool keeps my processor cool even while gaming hard with fans set on low it doesnt go above 42 Celsius.
