Summary: excellent concept but it was very loud a good portion of the noise was coming from the pump. Noise level was pretty standard till load was put. I do a lot of video work and that was when it brought the roof down. Other times ran a little warmer than normal but with in acceptable parameters.
Pros: Easy install, cpu is awesome, liquid cooling solution is easy to install
Cons: Liquid cooling works okay untill you put a load on the cpu then cpu shoots up to over 65.(not even overclocking) Also very loud when under load the cpu is louder than a stock fan. I finally got tired of the noise and the overheating issue and removed the liquid cooler and replaced it with a Frio ...
Summary: I do get frustrated with all the nay Sayer's about this company, or it's products, and they always seem to tell people who purchase AMD products, what an idiot they are for purchasing AMD products. I support competition, and therefore I support the existence of two competing companies.
Pros: I love this processor!!! Not only for gaming, but for Video editing applications, and Photography editing, and all other graphics/video editing software works great with this processor. Rendering is so much faster now, plus multi-tasking isn't a problem while rendering a massive project, I can ev...
Cons: It does run warm and more power consumption, but honestly I could care less about that since most of the applications I run requires a processor that can handle constant work loads, and we all know that generates heat. There are many times where I'm rendering a 2 hour film with so many filters ad...
Cons: There is no consumer liquid cooling that could properly cool this processor. no corsair h100 or h110 will properly cool it. You are much better off going with the Intel I7 6700K. It may be $100 more but whats $100 when you're spending so much money on a gaming rig or whatever power rig your build...
Pros: This thing works great, I have it paired with an h80i gt and it cools just fine.
Cons: When I first installed it would freeze up my entire system when starting games. Updated all my drivers and bios, and a few days in it works perfectly fine and doesn't get too hot at all, don't let it discourage you
Pros: great amd love it this thing is a moster cant wait to try dx12 with this baby and see her run even better got a 990x r 2.0 mobo 1 ssd 2 3 tb hdd 2 8gb corsair vengeance 1866 ram with a rosewill 750psu and a amd r9 290x this thing runs like a beast with a coolmaster 932 sp blue case and a cm nepto...
Cons: bought it from newegg my pins were destroyed i contacted cs they said cause of thermal paste being spilt on it the warranty if void this cpu great my roommate love it with graphic design 3d modeling ect instead of his intet but again only con is newegg but thats just imo cause how i was treated
Summary: if i could i would take off a half of star but only for the TDP, which is super hot. i havent been able to overclock it yet because i am waiting on my cosair h100i gtx because my antec h20 950 is a little to small to overclock it. but we'll see.
Pros: VERY FAST CPU. and a blazing 5.0ghz speed with the turbo. 8 cores, 8mb L2 & L3 & cache. more than enough for modern gaming.
Cons: hmmmm....... it would have to be the TDP at 220 watts super hot so if you wanna overclock you have to get a some kind of water cooling.
Summary: Mine is kept below 60c at ALL times running 5.0Ghz at 1.475vdc, with a simple Corsair H70. No one ever said you couldn't put your own SCREAMIN' fans on an integrated water cooler. I run a pair of Scythe UltraKaze's in push/pull that can spin up to 3k rpm's when needed. No excuse for fryin' this cpu.
Pros: As fast as you can get with AMD
Cons: It DOES get warm. But it's not difficult to provide proper cooling, with a bit of imagination.
Summary: I run this for gaming and compiling progams. it runs verry well untill you start to run on the high side of processing percentage. At that point even runing water cooling i couldnt keep it from over heating.
Pros: great processor, and very fast.
Cons: you need to know what you are doing with this processor. I ran this processor with a corsair h100i and it could not handle the amout of heat this processor provides.
Summary: Just after buying, I realized what a mistake I'd made, and that I should've bought an Intel processor, but I decided to keep it, since I didn't want to spend any more money on RMA fees (I bought a board with the wrong chipset), and I wanted to see if AMD could actually make a good CPU.
Pros: - Somewhat fast
Cons: - Inefficient - Runs very hot - Crashes frequently - Unreliable
Pros: It's a great CPU, Fast and Furious. Great for all uses.
Cons: It works great with Premiere pro. But when working with 4 K, when rendering or Encoding it will tend to over heat at 4.7. All other uses in premiere Pro work great. You shouldn't overclock while in this program. No negatives here, just info.
