5 out of 5 eggsA powerful monster that needs a good leash

Pros: The 8 cores really show their strength in multitasking and the overall power is outstanding idling at less than 1%. Blows through everything I throw at it and never complains.

Cons: Comes at the cost of tons of heat. Mine is cooled with H100i which manages to do the job, BUT does not provide any headroom for overclocking.

4 out of 5 eggsTurbo Core causes instability

Pros: speed
cost

Cons: Turbo Core not working right

Other Thoughts: Purchased with ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0, GSkill RipJaws X-Series (2x8GB), and Cooler Master Seidon 240M liquid cooler. Upgraded old MB, CPU, and RAM. Reused Sapphire HD7970 3GB video card, and 2 Seagate 7200rpm HDs.

Upon first assembly and refreshing Windows Experience scores, the system would slow to a crawl about half way through. System clock would essentially stop. Tried adjusting BIOS settings to figure it out, but nothing fixed it. Decided to try PCMark 8 Demo, and had same effect, except it slowed almost immediately. Started up the CPU Fequency monitor from Asus Suite, and rerun PCMark. When the system slows down, the cpu frequency would spike anywhere from 800 to over 2000, and would not drop to normal until I managed to cancel the benchmarking. Went into the BIOS and disabled Turbo Boost, and repeated the benchmark and everything worked fine.
Not sure if this is a CPU issue, MB issue, or a bug in the BIOS.
Other than that issue, the system seems to work perfectly fine.

5 out of 5 eggsEpic

Pros: Does the job and more from the gaming aspects

Cons: As expected heats up alot make sure you have the right cooler. I went with a Thermaltake NiC C5. It's fine for now but no chance of overclocking it with that.

Other Thoughts: Cheap for what you get

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Eight cores, fast, cheaper than the other guy. Runs like a scalded dog.

Cons: what??????

Other Thoughts: I have this cpu running on an Asus Sabertooth R-2 Gen 3 board. I have had no problems with heat or stability. I have it cooled by a Corsair H110 with fans just in the pull configuration and it idles @34-36. It is also clocked @ 5.3, all day long with no hiccups. Memory runs @ 2600.
People need to pay attention to what motherboard is compatible with this cpu. Seems to me like there is a lot of operator error dealing with this cpu. As for a power supply, I run an XFX 1250w psu. You need to do your homework when it comes to this cpu. If not you will wind up like some of these folks here with a destroyed motherboard or blown psu or it just doesn't work on an incompatible motherboard.
This is my first serious AMD FX chip. I really like it. I would also recommend this chip to anyone who wants to build a high end AMD machine. I can't wait for the next gen of FX chips that come out in 2016.
If you have the money and the right equipment, I would recommend this chip. You won't regret it.

4 out of 5 eggsFinicky but good value

Pros: The last hurrah for the venerable AM3+ platform.
5MHz clock speed in burst mode.
At $250, the price/performance ratio is unbeatable even when you do factor in a premium heatsink.

Cons: Generates insane amounts of heat. The stock AMD AM3+ copper-bottom air cool heatsink won't cool this beast; a heavy duty heat sink is required (preferably water cooling) and even then it runs hot.

It does have built-in thermal throttling which drops the clock rate when it reaches a pre-set threshhold, so it's safe to run, but if you want to get the full benefit of this CPU you need serious cooling.

Basically, this chip is overclocked out of the box, so of you're looking for something that you can tweak, forget it. It's already pushing the limits.

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd AM series CPU over a stretch of 7 years. It's pretty amazing how well AMD has kept the platform relevant and competitive.

I'm a little annoyed that Newegg dropped the price by 25% a week after I bought mine, but that's life.

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing Fast...Not Nearly As Hot

Pros: This processor is extremely fast. I was planning on OC for fun, but with AMD Turbo enabled I have no need while using it for serious gaming.

Everyone has been commenting on how this runs hot. I purchased a water cooler (Corsair H100i) to go in my NZXT Phantom Full Tower. I also replaced the stock H100i fans with Noctua NF12's for whisper quiet performance. With this setup I'm idling at around 24°C. With Prime 95 it peaked at 44°C. I also attempted to set up a push/pull config with the Noctua and stock Corsair fans but saw negligible improvement (not enough to warrant using the loud H100i stock fans).

Running this with 16GB of RAM and a SanDisk SSD and it manages to boot to Windows 10 Technical Preview in about 8 seconds.

Cons: Nothing worth knocking an egg off for.
