2 out of 5 eggsBetter off with Intel

Pros: Fast but thats about it.

Cons: There is no consumer liquid cooling that could properly cool this processor. no corsair h100 or h110 will properly cool it. You are much better off going with the Intel I7 6700K. It may be $100 more but whats $100 when you're spending so much money on a gaming rig or whatever power rig your building. Intels new chips run alot cooler and perform at a higher level for gaming. Anyone who builds a gaming rig with an AMD processor doesnt have a clue.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing works great, I have it paired with an h80i gt and it cools just fine.

Cons: When I first installed it would freeze up my entire system when starting games. Updated all my drivers and bios, and a few days in it works perfectly fine and doesn't get too hot at all, don't let it discourage you

Pros: VERY FAST CPU. and a blazing 5.0ghz speed with the turbo. 8 cores, 8mb L2 & L3 & cache. more than enough for modern gaming.

Cons: hmmmm.......
it would have to be the TDP at 220 watts super hot so if you wanna overclock you have to get a some kind of water cooling.

Other Thoughts: if i could i would take off a half of star but only for the TDP, which is super hot. i havent been able to overclock it yet because i am waiting on my cosair h100i gtx because my antec h20 950 is a little to small to overclock it. but we'll see. oh another thing make sure you purchase a good quailty board and psu to pair with this cpu . i personally went with the asus crosshair V formula z. or you could go with the asus sabertooth and a rosewill photon 1200 watt. more than enough on both.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's fast and warm, just provide proper coolin

Pros: As fast as you can get with AMD

Cons: It DOES get warm. But it's not difficult to provide proper cooling, with a bit of imagination.

Other Thoughts: Mine is kept below 60c at ALL times running 5.0Ghz at 1.475vdc, with a simple Corsair H70. No one ever said you couldn't put your own SCREAMIN' fans on an integrated water cooler. I run a pair of Scythe UltraKaze's in push/pull that can spin up to 3k rpm's when needed. No excuse for fryin' this cpu. Be creative and make your cooling solution work.

4 out of 5 eggsreqires some computer knowlage

Pros: great processor, and very fast.

Cons: you need to know what you are doing with this processor. I ran this processor with a corsair h100i and it could not handle the amout of heat this processor provides.

Other Thoughts: I run this for gaming and compiling progams. it runs verry well untill you start to run on the high side of processing percentage. At that point even runing water cooling i couldnt keep it from over heating. you could under clock the cpu or you could throttle the processing resorces (although not recomended). I somked this processor by overheating it one too many times. even tough though i dammaged this processor i will deffinately buy another. This time I plan on cooling with below ambient temperatures.

5 out of 5 eggsAttention Adobe Premiere Pro 4K editors

Pros: It's a great CPU, Fast and Furious. Great for all uses.

Cons: It works great with Premiere pro. But when working with 4 K, when rendering or Encoding it will tend to over heat at 4.7. All other uses in premiere Pro work great. You shouldn't overclock while in this program. No negatives here, just info.

Other Thoughts: Great CPU

5 out of 5 eggsgreat processor

Pros: Like I said in the title great processor, been using AMD for over 10 yrs and never disappointed with the price to performance, runs fast and efficient.

Cons: Does get quite unstable over 5GHz

Other Thoughts: not sure how tech savvy people are out there so if you are experiencing frequent freezes and hang ups Change CPU bus frequency in BIOS from Auto or 216 down to about 195-205, you won't notice any performance issues, but it will not freeze on you.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic CPU

Pros: This is an additional review to my 1st one, which I though it was very positive.
Works excellently and very stable with a Thermaltake water cooler.
at 4.7 GHz with turbo off and multiplier set at 23.5X.

Cons: Though my 1st review was very favorable with an air cooler, (a Coolermaster 212 Evo, with 2x 120 mm fans)... at times, and on multimedia especially, CPU overheated and caused freezes and reboots.
it is probably ideally designed to work with a water cooler.
Does not work too stable at 5 GHZ even with water cooler.

Other Thoughts: Happy with my purchase, but I had to buy a water cooler to have it runnin gstable. I understand from reviews, that the OEM water cooler this CPU comes with, it's not the best choice.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Even being a few years old this thing still holds its own.

Cons: -Runs hot. Recommend using an all-in-one water cooler or high end air cooling at the least. (Works good with my V8 GTX)
-High voltage. Lowering this and running benchmarks to find a nice stable low helps tremendously with heat as well.
