5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Runs multiple tasks with a breeze, haven't had any issues and was plug and play with Asus ROG 990fx

Cons: None so far besides running on the warm side on air cooling but was expected

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, but runs HOT

Pros: Great base clock and performance

Cons: HOT HOT HOT

Other Thoughts: Don't think about overclocking this without a large(r) liquid cooler. On a 120MM liquid cooler that covers the entire surface area of the chip, it runs around 65 degrees max running Prime95 running stock clock. Don't think about overclocking without a larger liquid cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsworth the extra cost

Pros: Have paired this processor with an Asus M5A99FX R 2.0 and it is a perfect fit. It takes this Steamroller architecture running this fast to start getting single-threaded performance to start to feel 'Intel-like.' I started out with an FX 8350 and it would simply not run or overclock as easily or as well as this one at its default speeds, as I felt 4.2 ghz was all my FX 8350 would reliably go and it was almost too hot for my taste at that.

Cons: Not really a con but you'll need a big cooler (of course!) Hyper 212 or better. (I am using an Antec 950 and, although a bit noisy when stress testing,- it seems to handle things just fine.)

Other Thoughts: The Asus M5A97 motherboard I tried with my 8350 defaulted to running the HT at 2400 whereas the MA99X Pro mobo with the same chip HT defaulted to 2600 (...same HT defaults appeared even with using the 9370 chip. 9370 chip not authorized for 970 mobo.). In all cases NB speed defaults were 2200. This situation in general, although an improvement over previous Phenom II, may still have been the Achilles Heel trying to get FX into the realm of PCIEx 3.0 slot performance. Very close with the Pro board, but not quite the same as Ivy Bridge or newer Intel 3.0 slots. (newer AMD FM2+ combinations have no HT adjustments whatsoever and sport 3.0 slots-but their processors have MUCH smaller cache sizes...) Asus shows a 990FXSabertooth board on their website that sports 3.0 but it is not available on Newegg...might 've been processor/overclock dependent?/not sure it was ever a reality. One thing I will say for these big 8-core FX's is that they load up big games in a very powerful and quick fashion. And that is true even when using ECC ram like I do.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast

Pros: I have been using AMD for just over a decade now, and this is by far the finest product they have released. I had tried the 4.7 GHz edition but ran hot, so I tried this guy and I can still overclock to 5.2 GHz on custom cooling which I think says enough.

Cons: The only con is no supplied cooler but when your buying a product of this quality your more than likely planning on something a little different.

Other Thoughts: The new Vishera turbo core tech seems to be much more stable than the previous bulldozers.

5 out of 5 eggsFast and powerful

Pros: Fast and able to power through apps and games. Overclockable. Seems a somewhat faster version of my FX-8320 which I have @4.2GHz.

Should run great with most setups even if you don't OC it or run it at the max stock turbo clock of 4.7GHz.

A worthy Intel competitor, this CPU is great at handling tasks and won't be the bottleneck in your PC rig. Might I also mention it's reasonably priced?

Cons: Power hungry and therefore runs a bit warm on current AM3+ 990FX Boards. In fact, w/o proper cooling, you may not be able to OC it to ~5GHz stable. **see thoughts

Other Thoughts: My setup was using the ASRock 990FX Extreme9 which people were saying it's a good board for the 220W CPU. It is in fact an awesome platform, but I tried w/ a Corsair h80i with upgraded fans and still couldn't keep it cool enough @5GHz.

I haven't had enough time to play with the voltages on the mobo, but I think a cooler such as the h100i is in due order to keep this CPU cool enough. Make sure you get a CPU cooler designed to handle this large amount of 220W TDP-generated heat.

If you're thinking of just upgrading from an FX-8320 or 8350, the benefits are probably small to medium, b/c of all the heat and power required. It is very fast though on a new build and nothing could slow it down.

5 out of 5 eggsBest cpu for the price

Pros: best price vs performance you can get. 4.7ghz out of the box with no bios tweaking at all is nothing to shake a stick at.

Cons: not a con, but ill put it here instead of down below,
THIS PROCESSOR GETS REALLY HOT. BELIEVE THE POSTS AND GET A WATER COOLING SYSTEM. I thought i could get away with air cooling because i had a nh-d14 and have always been just fine with previous builds.....until i bought this beast. at 100% load it spiked to 61+ in a matter of seconds. dont risk it, get a water cooling system.

Other Thoughts: This cpu has a power consumption of 220w. Almost every psu calculator out there suggested a minimum of 518 watts, so make sure you have at least a quality 550w power supply to ensure you have adequate wattage for your system.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: This thing flies. I am running a water cooler with it so have no complaints of heat what-so-ever. Minor tweaking, no major OC and this thing is screaming. It's really hard to compete for this price

Cons: I didn't buy it sooner.

5 out of 5 eggsA Hot One, but Fast

Pros: Speed and performance. Able to run CPU-intensive programs without breaking a sweat. With 8-Cores at 4.4, you really don't even need to think about overclocking unless your rig is deficient in Memory or GPU and need to pick up the slack somewhere.

Cons: Heat, Heat, Heat. Yes, it's 220W. So expect it. Purchasing a solid, high-end, quality CPU cooler is not an option. It is a necessity. Running the Corsair H100i liquid cooling and she idles around 30C, with dips into the mid-20s observed as well from time to time. Under load she runs up into the high 40s low 50s.

So if you're not going to use a liquid cooling system, be sure to spend the extra cash and get a real good CPU air-cooler and extra case fans. Also be sure your case can support the size of the larger cooling systems.

Other Thoughts: The higher operating temp for the processor is 100% expected. There were no illusions she was going to run hot. So with that in mind, I'll echo what I previously stated. As long as you buy some good quality CPU cooling system, you will enjoy the heck out of this processor.

5 out of 5 eggsBest AMD to date

Pros: *amazing speeds
*8 cores all unlocked to share workload
*overclocks to 4.9, 5ghz if you round up.

Cons: *220w

Other Thoughts: This is the best AMD cpu in my opinion. The other, which is the 9590, only increases the ghz by 300- stock but is $100 more. My thinking is for those that want to overclock, I was able to stabilize mine with an h100i (in florida) to 4.9Ghz. You must think about this, 4.4 is fast with 8 cores. Unless youre doing multi editorial software, you dont need anything more or if you did, you decided to go with an intel i7 and shell out $500+ This is more than perfect to go with a very good GPU+DRAM. I have a 780GTX and 16GB of ram at 2133mhz. I'm able to play Metro Last Light at nearly 60fps on max with Advanced PhysX. The only issue i have is that this processor is 220W. That's a lot of power used per hour and of course, you must have an ample power supply to power everything else. I have an EVGA 1000 G2 to power my system. Most important would be your CPU cooling. I have an h100i which does a very good job but I'm still amazed at the amount of heat this thing gives off. Overall, if youre an AMD fan, which i have always been for the stability of the windows system, you can't go wrong with this pick.
