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.
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: if you guys think that it is better than 2500k 0r higher than that , then you are just a BIG LOL , people think this processor as a beast coz it got 8 cores , f**k lol if this processor get 100+ cores then also it cannot compete intel processors , so just go for intel i5 2500k if you are looking for gaming needs .
Summary: La placa que compré tenía un cortocircuito según me dijeron los técnicos de App que lo revisaron en su momento, así que no sé si el procesador venía bien o no porque no me fue posible llegar a encender el equipo a pesar de que llevaba una semana montándolo con sumo cuidado. Desde aquel disgusto solo compro Intel porque al final lo barato acaba saliendo caro.
Summary: Bizzat test eden biri olarak söylüorum i5 2500K modeli bile bu işlemciden iyi.. 2011 2012 ve en son cıkan oyunlarda test ettim.. i5 2500k yı geçemiyor.. bi kaç amd destekli oyun hariç.. o oyunlardada 2-3 fps fark var.. + overclock yapmadım i5 2500k ya bide yaptığımı düşünün..
