Summary: I'm a big gamer, but use AMD over Intel. Would recommend to anyone that has at least minor experience in overclocking. There are a lot of different setups that you can use to optimize your system for gaming. Still not a bad buy for those inexperienced with overclocking and looking for a cheaper route than Intel or who already have an AMD setup that want to upgrade.
Summary: This was what I was looking for, a processor with 6 cores for a great gaming. works great, and is the fastest cpu I have ever got. All programs runs in seconds instead of minutes. And best of all it arrived 2 days early for a build that was waiting on it. And im using it to type in this review.
Summary: Product shipped very fast. Processor is exactly what I bought. Didn't overclock as high as I was hoping, but not the seller's fault. This allowed me to alleviate the bottlenecking in my system. Absolutely love it.
Summary: This is a very fast processor, and is perfect for overclocking! With the stock heatsink, I had the processor clocked at 4ghz easily and it was stable. Very good buy. As efficient (in my opinion) as the newer AMD FX 8000 series.
Summary: Bought this when we rebuilt our desktop computer. It's awesome. It runs 6 cores, is fast, and even though it isn't a Pentium, we're getting comparable speed for way cheaper cost. Perfect for gaming or an HTPC.
Summary: I've been an AMD fan for a very long because of their products allow you to enjoy a solid product, while adding the ability to push the performance envelope. Without question, this CPU has been a great system addition. For the last year, I've run it at 3.7Ghz without any signs of stress -- 500 Mhz higher than the 3.2Ghz base. My machine has been on 24x7 for numerous weeks handling games, movies and work in stellar fashion.
