  • newegg Unlocked AMD FX 4-Core Processor The native 4-core desktop processor delivers unmatched multitasking and pure core performance with all-new “Bulldozer” architecture. New 32 nanometer die shrink was designed to reduce leakage for improved efficiency, increased clock rate headroom and better thermals. Watch rich, crisp HD video. Run multiple compute-intensive applications seamlessly.
  • newegg AMD Turbo CORE Technology The AMD FX Processors come equipped with AMD Turbo CORE Technology, a performance boosting technology that helps increase performance on the applications that need it the most.
  • newegg New Instruction Capabilities – AVX, FMA4 and XOP, AES Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX) increase parallelism tailored for scientific and 3D applications that use heavy floating point calculations. Floating Point Vector Multiply-Accumulate improves throughput and performance on many vector functions (integer and floating point). Advanced Encryption Standard noticeably increases performance on the latest encryption applications like TrueCrypt and benchmarks like PCMark.
  • newegg AMD HyperTransport Technology HyperTransport Technology (HT or HTT) is a high-speed, low latency, point-to-point link which helps reduce the number of buses in a system thus reducing system bottlenecks and enabling today's faster microprocessors to use system memory more efficiently in high-end multiprocessor systems. With HTT, the AMD FX-4100 enjoys up to 37GB/s total delivered processor-to-system bandwidth (HyperTransport bus + memory bus).
  • newegg Integrated DRAM Controller with AMD Memory Optimizer Technology The AMD FX Processor features a high-bandwidth, low-latency integrated memory controller that supports up to DDR3-1866 and new low voltage memories of 1.35V and 1.2V and provides new Pre-Fetcher improvements and direct communications to each core in Dual-Core module (APIC registers in each core).
  • newegg AMD Virtualization (AMD-V) Technology with IOMMU Silicon feature-set enhancements designed to improve the performance, reliability, and security of existing and future virtualization environments by allowing virtualized applications with direct and rapid access to their allocated memory. IOMMU is an extension to AMD64 architecture to support address translation and access protection on DMA transfers. AMD-V with IOMMU helps virtualization software to run more securely and efficiently enabling a better experience when dealing with virtual systems.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat processor

Pros: This processor is absolutely perfect for what I needed it for, could handle most high end games, occasionally reaches fairly high temps of around 50-60 Celsius. Not too big a problem, most likely due to my case not having the greatest air flow. All in all, very good and still works after a few years. Comes with decent thermal paste pre-applied to the heat sink, though I ended up cleaning it and replacing with Arctic Silver 5 and the results are slightly better.

Cons: The only thing I can think of as a con would be the fan, at first it was quiet but at this point (almost 3 years) the stock fan has become the loudest fan in my system.

1 out of 5 eggs9 months later

Pros: I liked the cpu processing speed, the overall performance and to take stress off of the cpu, I added 16gb's of ram instead of 8.

Cons: It broke.

Other Thoughts: I have never seen or heard of this happen before, but I heard a pop and my whole computer powered down. After unplugging all the power coards and flipping the power switch, I flipped up the lock to the cpu cooler. I picked it up to check the pins on the cpu, but the cpu was connected to the mb still and I was still holding the cooling system in my hand. I am always delicate with my things and obviously that pop was the cpu breaking away from the cooling system.

In effect, I now have a cpu and a motherboard to return because it will no longer power up either. I hope the rest of my hardware is fine. I just upgraded my graphics card, bought a better hdd, and have ordered a different monitor. Everything I had in my rig was according to spec and I had a techy friend of mine go over all the specs to make sure everything would work, so there is no excuse in my mind for how thorough I was in building/upgrading the parts.

Since I play high-end grapically based games, I have been in the habit of watching temperatures of CPU and GPU to make sure there isn't overheating. None of that showed this morning and I hope I get a refund.
