Very disapointed

  • Summary: Bought one of these. Performed like absolute ****. Made games run slower and got blue-screens about 4 times a day. I contacted the seller and returned it. Bought another one, assuming that one was faulty...performed like **** again. Contacted the seller, they wouldn't refund my money, so I sold it. Went back to my FX-6300 and I'm glad I did. Never buying any Intel product again, thats for damn sure.

Good processor, useless cooler

  • Summary: I have heard that the cooling system of Intel processors was bad. Never imagined it was THAT bad. The plastic clips to hold it in the motherboard were almost impossible to put in place. Once I managed to keep them all correctly placed, I found that it was DOA. If you buy this, ensure you save some budget for a decent cooling system to replace the one included. Try to get one with metal backplate holding. The CoolerMaster Hyper 212 is a good choice to start.
