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.

5 out of 5 eggsCPU Power!

Pros: It's a beast! This processor properly installed and configured will easily handle most multiple programs running simultaneously without any difficulties! Combined with the proper motherboard and plenty of RAM the performance is jaw dropping!

Cons: Not so much a con but don't expect this processor to come with a heat sink. This as well as several other AMD powerhouse processors must be water-cooled. With a Corsair H100 water-cooling system temperature can be easily maintained. Not to mention use decent case fans!

Other Thoughts: Combined with Cooler Master Case, New Variable Speed Case Fans, Corsair H100 CPU Water Cooling System, 32 GB 1866 Rip jaw RAM, Dual AMD Sapphire Vapor -X R9 280X 3GB Graphic Cards (Cross Fire Configuration), 2 LG Blue Ray Burners /players, Latest Version Asus Sabertooth 990FX Motherboard,Rosewill Lightning 1300 Watt Gaming PSU,2 Samsung SSD 840 Series 500GB, 1 Raptor 1TB Internal HD, 21 Multi -Card Reader, Windows 8.1 Pro Full Retail Edition, 32" HD 3-D HDMI Monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsRecommended

Pros: Bought this chip because I didn't see the gain from getting the latest CPU from AMD for an added $150 to go from 4.4GHz/4.7GHz to 4.7GHz/5GHz. It is plenty fast and at only a couple hundred more MHz I didn't see the point unless I wa going for extreme. Worked right out of the box with 0 Config in the Bios running at 4.4GHz

Cons: Does NOT include a cooling fan and I was unable to find this information anywhere!!!! AMD website references a stock fan but it does not come with any cooling solution... And it does run HOT so buy a good fan

Other Thoughts: Awesome chip, Awesome Price, Awesome

5 out of 5 eggsNICE CPU

Pros: This thing is fast, I'M having no problems with it at this time. It runs all my games with no prob, like RRE, Titanfall and Battlefield etc. If you want this CPU make sure you buy the one that comes with the water cooling unit. It needs good cooling. I lowered the voltage down to 1.30 & I'm still getting 4.4GHZ/4.7GHZ. This CPU runs at 30 degrees at idle & 50 under load, now take it, my house is 73 degrees.

Cons: This CPU does run WARM but its not that bad.

Other Thoughts: MY System:
storm stryker cooler master tower
ASUS crosshair V formula Z mobo
G-Skill Trident X 16GB Memory
Cooler Master Seidon 240m Water Cooling
XFX 7870 DD in Crossfire
Samsung 840 PRO 256 SSD
Seagate 750 SSHD
Seagate 1T
Zalman 1000w PS

I'm very happy with this build, it runs everything I throw at it.

5 out of 5 eggsUnstoppable!

Pros: This processor is 8 cores of pure power. At factory settings with proper cooling I ran Titan Fall and Skyrim simultaneously for two hours and it stayed below 50 degrees Celsius with no issues. I'm sure it could handle a third game if there was a point. It takes everything i throw at it with ease. I will definitely buy AMD again, no question.

Cons: None at all.

4 out of 5 eggsLots of power

Pros: Lots of cores, lots of speed, and lots of power. I haven't had any issues with this CPU's performance when it comes to video gaming, audio editing, or video editing. Running multiple high CPU usage programs/apps at once and it is still able to handle more. Very impressed.

Cons: Minus one egg for not coming with a heat sink. Many reviews already mention it but I didn't caught it until the CPU arrived. Make sure if you get this CPU you get a heat sink with it; or you will be waiting a few extra days like me before you can use the CPU.

Other Thoughts: Runs really hot. Keep in mind that you will need a really good after market heat sink to keep this CPU cool.

5 out of 5 eggsQUICK AS YOU WANT IT!

Pros: So this baby is fast. VERY FAST, I'm a gamer, and with a good graphics card you'll have no issue running 2-3 screens, multiple games on each monitor if you like, while listening to music and googling/youtubing as well. This thing is a multitasking beast. It comes turbo to 4.8ghz so it will be running naturally OC. This isn't really a pro but is the most important thing to keep in mind on this chip it runs HOT. I mean VERY HOT. More in cons. Although this is definitely a disadvantage, anyone buying this chip is likely shooting for higher end CPU and performance, and likely overclocking so this should be common knowledge for these builds.

Cons: As I mentioned it runs HOT. The sole reason Im making this review is to warn future buyers if you have anything else in your computer generating high heat(as in a high end graphics card and GPU) you will NEED liquid cooling. I have an overseer rx-1 case, full side, with great air flow 1x200mm(intake) fan on the front , 2x200mm(exhaust) fans on the top, 1x200mm(intake) side fan, 1x120mm(exhaust) back fan, and 1x120mm bottom fan(intake), also a 80$ ahigh end air cooler for the CPU. The reason im listing all these specs is that air cooling is maxed in this system and the CPU will still burn up if I let her. As soon as I put in my new GPU that runs about 90C on a regular basis, I started having heat problems. I didnt imagine this would be the case with such great air flow, but alas water cooling is a MUST if you plan on maximizing this chip. And if you dont plan on maximizing this chip save yourself a little money and go down a notch or two and save yourself some cooling issues.

To Long Didnt Read
I repeat THIS BABY RUNS HOT. Water Cooling is a MUST if you want to even run full speed much less overclocking.

Other Thoughts: I just ordered a new water cooler today for this chip, plan to overclock it and post another review in a week or two.
