Summary: I use this processor in a storage server/game machine and have no complaints. Even though this processor is at the bottom of the lot in it's class it holds it's own for gaming on EVE and doing the things I need as a programmer/developer. It is the right price as well.
Summary: It was everything I was looking for. Aside from the lacking graphics card which I replaced a few days later with a geforce gtx 760 and a new power supply (evga bronze 600) I would suggest this to anyone wanting an easy way to break into the building scene of the PC world. Plus the thing looks damn cool with all the red lights and whatnot.
Summary: be aware of the little thermal compound that was applied on the cooling body. CPU was overheating until I applied additional thermal paste which is not coming in the package. The fan is cheap but standard and easily replaceable. I'd recommend buying a single CPU and add a separate cooling solution.
Summary: This computer is a great machine. Aside from needing to upgrade the NVIDIA graphics card so that you can play games a bit better, even though the name says Gamer Ultra it should have at least a 4GB or higher for graphics and at least an i5 processor in it, (HINT HINT) it is a good computer.
Summary: This Has Been Used Now For One Year! The AMD FX 4100 Processors ROCK. This Was A Great Improvement Over The 1-Core That My HP Came With. Easy To Install No Searching For New Hardware, Just Plug In And Go,No Problems At All.Thinking About It, DON'T Just Get It, Check You're Power Supply To Be Sure It's Enough For This CPU.
Summary: The processor is great for a medium budget build but do be careful with the kind of motherboard you choose for it. Certain motherboards have little to no heat distribution for the VRM's which this and other higher end AMD FX processors are known to heat up. This will almost definitely result in a spike in temperature readings which might report as "255'C" or errors. This will result in the board either shutting down or throttling.
