5 out of 5 eggsFast clean workhorse

Pros: I downgraded from a FX-9590 for heat reasons and this is a clean, cool and fast processor. For day to day work and even gaming, you get all of the performance but none of the temperamental-ness of the other processor. It's overclockable just like the other one,but far more stable wafers.

Cons: It burns very hot too, so you need liquid cooling even for day to day use.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat cpu

Pros: Hi first off like to say its a great cpu..... if ur like me then u normally take a cpu and undervolt them .... well this cpu was great for it.....considering there isnt really any performance gains OCing cpu after a certain point... they do run hot but after undervolting it runs very cold make sure u have enough power to run it and a correct Mobo for it.... asus crosshair formula v z does the job perfect considering i picked mine up for lil over 80 bucks ... from newegg another story and a bad 1 ... If u ur looking for a gaming cpu a 6300fx will perform just as good as the 8 cores if u have a gpu to back it up.... i have 3 fx cpus and benchmarks tell it all ..... undervolt is the true overclocking when it comes to cpus..... and benchmarks prove it.... also can oc it to 5.2 easy if u want but u wont see any gains ....

Cons: vcore is set really high ...

Other Thoughts: 6300fx undervolted to 1.1 does just as good for games 8)

9370 great cpu but undervolt it to see the true potential of this cpu

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsNot that bad

Pros: I bought this for gaming... if you just want to game go for an i5 4690k the single core performance is better. But the good part of this cpu is that on boost you can get 4.73ghz who is pretty cool and when you multitask the cpu just dont care with his 8 cores.

Cons: HOOOOOT corsair h100i is a must

4 out of 5 eggsGood Value

Pros: It's a high-end cpu that is quite affordable.

Cons: It runs very hot even with a h60i cooler. Overclocking fails stability tests without a larger/better water cooler. TDP is obscenely high.

Other Thoughts: Its a good budget cpu if you already have a decent cooler/are getting a cheap one or don't have plans on overclocking.

Cons: none thus far

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.

2 out of 5 eggsGood and very bad

Pros: It's really fast when its showing full speed

Cons: It killed my mobo and before i found out that it actually was this processor that did it is slowed down to 3.8 from stock 4.4

Other Thoughts: If you get it beware also i cant return it for any reason aparently because its after the 30 days onlu by like a week

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.
