Summary: Very fast processor. I have no complaints so far. The other reviewers had great benchmark testing results so I gave it a shot. Not disappointed. Windows Experience score is 7.7 out of 7.9 on my rig. I'm sure I could have spent a little more to get the 7.9, but I seriously doubt I would have noticed the difference. I tend to run a lot of business software on a dual screen setup.
Summary: Good processor, Very fast.... BUT i got a defective one.. Cores 3&4 seem to be faulty and cause the PC to restart @ windows logo. Only works as a 6core CPU when cores 3&4 are disabled. I am going to order a second one to give it another try because as a 6core it does still pack a punch.
Summary: Awesome CPU for the price you pay. The only thing is that you really should remove the thermal compound that comes with it and install your own heatsink because AMD stock is incredibly loud. I've had this CPU for ~4 months or so now and have still yet to use over 60% of the cpu at any given time.
Summary: Really amazing CPU. Comes with everything you need. The stock fan that comes with it is small, but still does a very nice job of cooling the CPU. Although, i would get a larger fan if you plan on overclocking. The stock fan comes with thermal paste, so you do not have to worry about applying it yourself with the fear of messing up. I honestly have no complaints about this CPU. Worth every dollar.
Summary: it works good and its fairly priced for a series 8 core possessor i haven't had a problem with it runs multiple programs flawlessly but i built this computer for gaming and it kinda causes a stair casing effect in sum games witch gets really annoying
Summary: I decided to go for the 8320 instead of the 8350 as this mean a $50 savings. I knew that a FX series 8 core would still be able to handle all my regular needs as well as deal with some of the last generation video games. While I have only used this processor for a couple of weeks, I have been surprised at how cool it is. My old Phenom used to stay at 50° idle and this one goes to 60° at full load.
Summary: After i installed to the new build everything just ran smooth no problem I did the tested ran fast and very cool no much to say about it but if you looking for good CPU for this price this is the one.
Summary: Very good product for its price. Overclocked it to 4.0ghz right when I got it, $40 cheaper for the same performance as a FX 8350. Worked extremely well with my build. I highly recommend it! You won't regret it.

**Two Microsoft Hotfixes For FX Bulldozer Series**
3 November 2013
Summary: I have the FX-4100 and found a good performance gain after installing two Microsoft hotfixes that address Windows7/8 inability to really use the FX bulldozer architecture. These are a result of a joint effort between AMD & Microsoft. The fixes are not available through Microsoft critical/optional updates; however are on Microsoft websites. 1- KB2645594 (Install first) 2- KB2646060 These are zip files so after downloading/opening them they still need to be installed.
