5 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-6100 Zambezi 6-Core 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX

Pros: Use the CPU for more than a year. Very fast and reliable. Handles all applications very well.

Cons: not Intel ;-)

Other Thoughts: This is my first AMD CPU and my next CPU for office, HTPC and my child PC would be AMD for sure. For servers or where reliability is the factor, I would still chose Intel hands down. Don't get me wrong, the CPU is great overall.

4 out of 5 eggsStill running

Pros: Purchased Oct 2012 and about to hit the 2 year mark and still running solid.

Cons: Memory Controller integrated and seems to be limiting my memory. I have 32gm of ram but not allowing more than 16gb to be usable. I believe this is an issue with the memory controller after many many hours spent researching. I could be wrong but this is the only conclusion I can come to.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat cpu for price

Pros: No problems at all with this. Used it to build budget gaming rig for GF. It plays FC3 paired with 8gb and a 550ti at decent settings with no frame stutter.

Cons: Nothing yet to report.

Other Thoughts: Worth the monies.

4 out of 5 eggslasted two years

Pros: This chip ran strong for a long time. Handling everything I through at it. From gaming to creating. I was on a budget when I built this rig and this was the right chip for me. The stock cooler wasn't too loud and kept thing pretty cool usally in the 40s when gaming. And i had it over clocked to 4.1.

Cons: After about two years of solid performance 4 of the 6 'cores' have died. Causing bsod's at random times. I disabled cores 2-5 in the bios and got it to keep working until I build my new rig. Even at two cores it runs pretty well. over clocked the two working cores to 4.4 and Temps reach about 50.

2 out of 5 eggsFailure after about 14 months

Pros: Worked well before failure. Could throw pretty much any non-gaming task at it with ease. No issues with intense usage.

Cons: Failure after about 14 months. Built this at the same time as a friend who went with an i5 Ivy Bridge. I opted for the cheaper product and learned a valuable lesson.

Other Thoughts: I've heard more recent versions of the chip are better, but I'm not going to be swayed by the marketing of logical cores again. Intel or nothing going forward.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Processor

Pros: Bought this a couple years ago and it is still going strong. Early days I over clocked it to about 3.7 without a problem. Took it back down to stock as it was not needed.

Cons: Wish I went with the 8 core back in the day. Not really a con just an observation :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU for a great price.

Pros: A very good value for the price -- this CPU has been running smoothly for nearly two years now, and no sign of it slowing down. I bought it when it was pretty new (and the price was great even then), and it's keeping up with the demands of newer games and software.

Cons: None, really.

I've read other reviews that the multi cores aren't always utilized, but this is really only an issue if you're using older software. I've run into a few problems here and there (older games or programs, e.g. Portal) and have been able to work around them without too much headache. I don't expect a new piece of hardware to be designed to work at maximum efficiency with programs that are more than 5 years old.

Other Thoughts: Like most of the other pieces in my current build, I'd seriously consider buying this CPU again. Six cores seem like more than enough to handle what I do.

5 out of 5 eggsNever a problem

Pros: Render video, listen to music, and surf web without a sputter. I do a lot of video work, six cores made a big difference in speed!

Cons: Had to repace with Arctic paste or is that a given?
