4 out of 5 eggs18month review

Pros: Octo-core - when fully utilized (read: ≤DX11 games do -not- fully utilize multi-core CPUs), this CPU is an absolute beast.
In gaming, Mantle/DX12/Vulkan unlock this CPU's true potential.
In productivity, this CPU performs spectacularly.

Cons: Binned from FX-9590 batch (speculation) - branding of inferiority/lack of potential; makes overclocking far more difficult.
High TDP: higher temperatures can result in shorter CPU lifespan.
Terrible performance in single-threaded applications (read: DX11/9 games, namely MMOs)

Other Thoughts: I bought this CPU by mistake while shopping for a 9590 18 months ago. Upon removing it from the Newegg box, I realized my mistake. Since Newegg only covers replacement-only with CPUs, I figured I would make do with what I had; it did come in a combo deal with a Corsair H80i (practically free) at a time when the bundled AMD coolers were unavailable.

I burned it in (stability test) and then looked into overclocking it towards the 9590 stats. Complete failure. My chip only overclocks a max of +1%. Bottom of the barrel in the binning.

Used with: ASUS Crossfire V Formula-Z
32GB Radeon Gamer Series DDR3-2133MHz CL10
ASUS AMD Radeon R9-290X DC2OC
Corsair H80i greased with Arctic Silver Céramique.

4 out of 5 eggsFREAKING HOT but a beast

Pros: Very fast
Very powerful
Can handle ALOT at once
did I mention that it is rather quick?
computes things.

Cons: Runs incredibly hot. this is one of the hottest CPU's on the market.
For whatever reason the darn thing likes to sit in turbo when its at like 20 % load. Although I probably just need to mess with my bios more.

Other Thoughts: You MUST water cool this CPU.
You MUST water cool this CPU.
But, if you have enthusiast grade cooling lying around it performs excellently and I feel I obtained a good price per performance on this despite cooling being a pain.

5 out of 5 eggsCall it the "Enthusiast Processor"

Pros: Incredible performance for the price! Personal benchmarks show it well above i5 chips at the same price and close to some i7' chips (without overclocking) that are 30% more expensive!

Cons: Be warned: This beast puts out heat! (220 watt TDP)

Other Thoughts: If you're not sure your motherboard supports it, get the 8370. If you're not ready to water cool, get the 8370. If you don't know about proper airflow and static pressure, or you don't want to run the risk of melting a motherboard and processor, go with the 8370. I love this processor, but it is hot and requires both a motherboard that supports 220w TDP and cooler capable of easily moving 220 watts of heat.

That said, if you want the power that this has to offer and are willing to do the homework to get what's necessary to support it, this little hulk will not disappoint! (ex. ASRock 990FX Extreme9 mobo with a Corsair Hydro H110 cooler is what I use)

5 out of 5 eggsnice and quick processor

Pros: Quick, solid, and reads extremely fast. Quick start up compared to regular hard drive and the price is perfect. Very stable and quiet with no whirling sounds or pausings

Cons: None So Far

Other Thoughts: Beside the space, this SSD is worth the bucks and you can get two to bridge/raid which will run even smoother

5 out of 5 eggsMONSTER

Pros: This thing is a freaking monster. It runs like a freaking beast. Very happy with the purchase as of this moment. Needless to say it runs hot!!!

Cons: It runs hot! Not really a con.

Other Thoughts: It runs HOT! Get your self H100i cooling set up with it. That is what I'm running with and so far it has kept it in check. From what I have read it is more than enough to keep this thing running cool. If this changes and the processor melts I will update my review.

1 out of 5 eggsNot worth it

Pros: Is considered a cpu

Cons: Fit fine in my CPU socket. Something I overlooked though this ridiculous CPU want 225W?! Anyways long story short this CPU and my mobo are now dead thanks to this waste of money. Plus even if I did have a compatible mobo, you can get a much better Intel CPU for the same price.
