Still Running

Bonnie M., Newegg
2 weeks ago
  • Pros: This was an excellent chip, despite what Intel fanboys would have you believe. Still keeps up with apps and games today, and is going strong. When I build my next system I will give this one to the kids to use and it should be fine for a few more years.
  • Cons: None.

I could marry this

Joseph N., Newegg
13 January 2016
  • Pros: I waited almost 5 years to write this review. This CPU is a champion. I do not know how to overclock, but that was fine. It ran everything I threw at it on stock settings. Witcher 2, Shogun 2 Total War, Battlefield 3, Civilization 5 etc. This was my first CPU I bought from AMD when I assembled my...
  • Cons: Some games that deal with a massive amount of units such as Total War series or Sins of a Solar Empire, Civilization 5 etc. can cause quite a bit of drop in FPS. In my case, it drops about 30 FPS from 60. This did not bother me all that much, but for others it something to consider. Stock fan is ...

I didnt go wrong with this one..

Erin P., Newegg
29 December 2015
  • Summary: Dont hesitate to play outside the specs with this one it can take it just watch the heat !
  • Pros: Still going.. on 5th year on GA-890FXA-UD5 takes the voltage when I drive it, heats up fast when OCed. Added an 80i water cooler helped big time when running 3.8Ghz. Great chip, good price, suprised me how well of a multitasker it is,wont hesitate to get next new gen processor of AMD when upgrade!
  • Cons: Benchmarks of the 965 black not much difference to the 955, feel AMD unsold its performance, I almost bought an intel, glad I didn't, helped my under $1K build achieve great value and still comparatively powerful for its age.

  • Pros: I have run this for over 5 years without a hitch. Started in my desktop but I upgraded that to a FX8370 Octocore, 16GB RAM and 2x250GB 850 Evo SSD's.

Long Term Review

Michael T., Newegg
13 July 2015
  • Summary: I really cant complain. There are better CPUs out there, obviously, but this one has been more than stable, reliable, and resilient. Ill try to get another year or so before upgrading.
  • Pros: This thing has been a champ. It has survived for over 3.5 years in a case that was always a bit warm. Paired with 16GB ram, a 2gb GPU it has been able to play all my CPU games with great FPS and always on High/Ultra settings. Even with an overheating GPU over the past 4 months (+85C) it has been ...
  • Cons: Fan became a bit loud after year 2. Did run a bit hot with factory heat sink/radiator combo. It ran around 55C under continued heavy load. (ONE case fan) Runs around 46C with new sink.
