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...
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.
Summary: Pros: Very good processing power for the money. Overclockable which is always a plus. Handles games extremely well. I am able to run several at one time and it doesn't miss a beat. The video encoding is very good. Through benchmarks, it beat the i5 intel.
Summary: The CPU is very fast, and the cooling system works fine, im going to overclock this and se how it works Combine it with an ssd and you will get Windows 8 started in 12 seconds make sure to read the instructions before mounting it if it is your first time building a pc
