5 out of 5 eggshappy

Pros: upgraded from x2 dual to this. very happy.
fast. handles multitasking with ease. i am not an oc'er anymore (used to oc like a mad scientist), so stock performance is very good. handles all my games with ease. i do intensive cad and photshop, and the computation/compile times are surprizingly fast. Benchmarks may indicate bottlenecks, but real-time performance show nothing of the kind. Your system will *not* be slow.

i fully recommend this cpu.

Cons: there is really only one con about the fx-6350, THE STOCK FAN.

Every time i turned on the computer, i would yell at my wife to stop vacuuming, only to realize that it was the stock fan. IT IS VERY LOUD. Like 60-70 decibels. My system is in the bedroom where i can lay in the bed with wireless k+m and recline with joy and ease before a 32" monitor overshadowing the foot of the bed. After purchasing this cpu, my wife and i couldn't sleep due to the noise if i left the computer running overnight. We bought extra pillows and sandwiched our head between them to remedy the noise. I could even hear the fan from the kitchen! In the bedroom, it sounded like the outside a/c unit was sitting inside the room. i am an amd junkie, but amd really dropped the ball regarding the LOUD FAN. Apparently, q&a heard the fan and said, "sounds nice. we'll go with it."

There are rumors of owners encasing thier rigs in foil and bubble wrap and placing them inside of a refrigerator sized box filled with padding and peanuts to dampen the noise. Google has videos on how to drill holes in the ceiling to run the box from your attic if you are concerned about the fan noise.

Other Thoughts: After managing through the maddening noise for 4-5 months, a positive thing happened. In a fury of borderline insanity and frustration from the screeching banshee fan, i jumped the fence of hsf, went totally silent and bought a ZALMAN FX70 Fanless CPU Cooler.

WOW!! Dead silence! So much so, that I just ordered the Seasonic SS-460FL2 Active PFC F3, 460W Fanless power supply. Even now i can't hear whether the system is on/off unless i put my ear to the case. Couldn't believe the huge fanless heatsink could keep a 6-core cool. it does!

Thanks amd for the jet-powered, tornado sounding fan, whos noise turned my house into a google server room. it forced me to go fanless and i haven't look back. Because of this, i did not knock off any eggs because my house has become completely silent. We can hear the morning birds again.

The cpu itself is flawless and an amd home run. best band for the buck. you got a solid, fast, powerful chip in this one.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Upgrade

Pros: This is a very efficient CPU. I upgraded from a Phenom x6 1055T. Newegg shipped Black Edition (THANKS!). Using a Cool Master D92, the operating temps, even when gaming, are low. The default heat sink is the same AMD has been using for a while. I'm not sure how efficient that is. Very cost effective upgrade.

Cons: None.

4 out of 5 eggsWorth it

Pros: Bang for buck. I bought this for a sub $1200(cad) build (First build yay!) and I haven't been disappointed yet. This cpu never seems to give me trouble. So far I've upgraded my psu, mobo, and soon will my gpu, but I feel this thing will be part of my pc for a while longer.

The stock 3.9ghz is pretty good for today's gamer, but this baby can easily push past it. I run mine at 4.3ghz but have had it pushed to 4.5 without much tinkering. I'm sure someone who is overclock savvy could push this thing even farther.

You won't have to sell an organ to pay for it like Intel...

Cons: I'm sure there is some but I can't think of any.

As far as competition Intel has better tech, but that's common knowledge.

Other Thoughts: I paired it with a 3rd party cooler. The one it comes with looks pretty wimpy and may cause heat issues.

4 out of 5 eggsAbnoxious fan

Pros: On a budget this is the cpu for you. Runs world of garrison fantastic under rather intense settings. idle 16-20 degrees, with actual tolerable fan sound. Under load 44-50 degrees. Once gaming though, imagine a semi-diesel's turbo about to spool, for a fan noise, or a jet's turbine.

Cons: Could be the worlds loudest fan to have ever been used as a stock fan for a cpu. Must replace asap rocky.

Other Thoughts: I plan to overclock, read a few reviews, most likely will overclock to 4.2 ghz. Currently waiting on the Cooler master nepton 120 to be shipped so i can do so.

Overall, even with fan noises, happy with purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsLOUD FAN

Pros: -Fast
-Cheap
-Doesn't Bottleneck with my Sapphire R9 280 OC
-They shipped me the Black edition, which was a pleasant surprise.

Cons: -Stock CPU cooler is extremely loud. I had to swap it with an Arctic Alpine 64 PRO Rev.2 fan and heatsink and it is around 35-40C under load.

3 out of 5 eggsSwitched away from FX, and for good reason.

Pros: Still cheap as all heck.
Still has 6 cores.
Still can run games "alright".

Cons: Power hungry little thing.
Minimum framrates in games aren't good.
Money could be better spent.

4 out of 5 eggsDefinitely got the job done.

Pros: Upgraded from a Phenom II X4 965 to this, saw a noticeable difference when multitasking. No significant increase in FPS when gaming (tested in GTAV and Dragon Age:Inquisition), but It did seem to fix some stuttering issues I've been having for a while.

Stock heatsink works pretty well, but is very loud. Non-overlocked was getting about 35C-41C idle, and a consistent 64C while under a Prime95 stress test. Not the best numbers, but mind you I live in a very hot part of California.

Cons: Like I said, the stock heatsink is loud. Not only that, but it starts to produce an almost hissing banshee-like sound when under heavy load. Do yourself a favor and be prepared to switch this thing out ASAP. It's so bad I can hear it though my headphones (albeit they're on-ear), and so can everyone in my vent server.

As much as I would like to list the lack of a real frame increase as a con, from an objective standpoint I have to admit you get what you paid for.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a decent upgrade that won't break the bank, this should easily do the job.

However, know that this will be almost obsolete next year when the AM4 socket is released along with the Zen line. I was really just looking for something to hold me over till then when I bought this, and can confidently say that it will.

4 out of 5 eggsSad, sad day =(

Pros: -Decently fast
-Overclocks super easy (I only went up to about 4.2 though)
-Great price for a budget system
-Will get you through general use blazingly fast

Cons: -Not an intel, but you knew that.
-Noticeably bottlenecks high end GPUs

Other Thoughts: Bought this back in February to upgrade from an aging Phenom 965. Definitely saw an upgrade. That being said, after pairing with a GTX970 on many new games (GTA5 especially) this CPU is a huge bottleneck, even when overclocked. The performance gap between AMD and Intel chipsets is becoming much larger now a days with new games demanding more from CPUs. You can pull up many benchmarks and see for yourself. Unfortunately, Looks like I will be upgrading to either an i5 or i7 (most likely i5) very shortly. Hopefully I can put this, with some parts I have lying around, and load it off on craigslist. I've used AMD cpus exclusively for the last 10 years and it really saddens me to see this, more so than I feel comfortable admitting. If you're trying to decide between AMD or Intel. I would, sadly, have to recommend the blue guys over the red. Especially if you're running a higher end GPU.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid CPU

Pros: High speed, plenty of threads - Ran multiple Server 2012 VMs simultaneously, runs modern games (GTA V, COD) on max (along with a GTX970)
Great price/ performance

Cons: No more logical threads beyond stated core count (a la Intel)
Despite speed, this CPU earned me the achievement in 3dmark (firestrike) for your GPU being way more powerful than your CPU.

Other Thoughts: Worth it for a value gaming build

5 out of 5 eggsFX-6350

Pros: This thing can overclock to 5.4ghz and still work like nothing has happened! i dont recommend doing this as it lowers life span, but if you want a powerful gaming cpu then this is the way to go.

Cons: Runs very hot. Stock cpu cooler sucks. Highly recommend buying a liquid cooler to keep this thing cool.
