Summary: I have had a cpu over temperature error since the day I bought it. I have tried numerous thermal compounds, I've reseated it numerous times and still nothing. It idles at over 80 degrees Celsius and I am not overclocking or anything.
Summary: This processor is fast, but it is also HOT! Paired it with a Coolmaster Hyper 212 Evo with plenty of cooling and it still seems to run a little on the hotter side. But as far was work goes, this beast gets it done and gets it done fast!
Summary: upgrading from an Intel Core i5-3350, I can safely say that this cpu is a must have for any graphic designer and gamer! Large resolution images and videos process lightning fast on this thing, and gaming has seen a huge improvement as well! absolutely no problems here; great performance overall.
Great performance. Get thermal paste for installation.

Summary: A really big improvement on my dual core CPU. The built in graphics hardware is great. One tip: Get some thermal paste. You need fresh thermal paste to cool the chip with your existing processor fan. Thermal paste is not reusable.
