5 out of 5 eggsOne of AMD's last cpu products

Pros: Fast

Cons: Needs good cooling, high power cpu not supported by too many motherboards yet, price

Other Thoughts: The air/fan cooler necessary to keep this happy will be expensive and really large. If I had it to do over again I would probably buy the version that includes the liquid cooling. Be sure the case you want to put this in can handle the liquid cooler radiator. Mine runs around 40c all the time and higher in the hot weather in my house with no ac. Under 70c is safe but why push it? This thing runs everything I toss at it and no issues under windows 7 or 8

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Processor

Pros: I am absolutely amazed at this processor, never even gets close to being bogged down. I had never used an AMD processor before this one, I've always been a Nvidia man, but this has totally changed my perspective on them entirely. For nearly half the price of a 4770k, and roughly the same performance, you can't beat it. So long as you have the proper cooling, because this card really, really wants to melt.

Cons: I mean it really wants to melt, you need some serious liquid cooling to keep it in normal ranges. I use a H100i, and it's been doing the trick pretty well, but I would not recommend anything less than that. I mean, even with that, I can get up to some fairly high heats when under large amounts of stress for long amounts of time, not too dangerous;y high, but still, hotter than I would want it to be. Of course, I live in a very hot and humid area, so that does play a part into it, but definitely something to be aware of. When it's just idling though the core average sits around 10-20 degrees Celsius, which is absolutely where I want it to be. Also, that it doesn't actually come with any sort of cooling device, which I do understand, but kind of surprised me that it didn't have anything.

Other Thoughts: The liquid cooling is really important, it wont do with normal CPU coolers, it really does require it. Especially if you are planning on overclocking, not that it needs it though, it's already plenty fast. If you want a 5GHz CPU, you would probably want to consider the 9590, which is supposed to be that high, the 9370 can do it, but I've never tried to take it that high, it sits nice and stable at 4.4 and is already very fast.

5 out of 5 eggsstrong processor

Pros: I've had this this processor for about 10 months now running at 5 ghz no problem, with an offset voltage to make it 1.475v under load (which is less than the voltage set on auto at 4.4 ghz). Able to keep cool n quiet on while not gaming, using only .8v. Pushes my gpu to 100% and uses about 55% max on all 8 cores in BF4. Kept cool with a xspc kit with a 360 radiator. 56 degree socket temp is the highest I've seen, well under the recommended 70 max. 45-48 degree core temp, also well under the 62 degree max. You won't regret buying this processor. It will last a long while. 990 FX series is at end of life, but by the time this cpu becomes a bottleneck, AMD and Intel will both offer a new chipset, so you will upgrade the mobo anyway. I had my phenom ii 550 (unlocked to x4) for 5 years, and that still gamed well in BF4, but this blows it out of the water. With new Direct X and Mantle, this cpu will have an even longer life span.

Cons: None, just make sure you have a mobo that supports it. Water cooling, in my opinion, is a must, as well as a good power supply. once it's tweaked and all settings dialed in, I guarantee you will like it.

3 out of 5 eggsSuper Powerful, be prepared

Pros: Extremely powerful and will run like a dream while it lasts

Cons: I almost guarantee this thing is going to fry out at some point in your ownership.
You're rolling the dice on how long this thing might last on you

Other Thoughts: It ran great for a couple of months, had some liquid cooling cause I knew it would run hot. Had a motherboard that was "Fx-series compatible" (although later found out in fine print you would need special cooling for this exact FX model). If you can find a motherboard that has this listed as completely compatible, and drop about 100 bucks on some good liquid cooling, you might be able to make this thing last for awhile longer than I did, but even prepared I could only get it to last about 9 months.

4 out of 5 eggsNo real complaints

Pros: - Smart packaging - small, only the necessities
- Doesn't include stock cooler - you wouldn't want to use one, anyways (went with a Cooler Master closed loop water cooler)

Cons: - Packaging was dented - likely a Newegg issue.

Other Thoughts: This box is small - but so is the processor, so AMD wasn't trying to take up space here. It runs fast, and thanks to the cooler I purchased, it runs cool as well.

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.
