5 out of 5 eggsScreaming Fast

Pros: Amazingly fast processor, and handles multitasking the way a great processor should.

Cons: It isn't really a con, but this processor runs very warm. 33 - 38 degrees Celsius using a very high end liquid cooler with four radiator fans in push/pull configuration.

3 out of 5 eggsoops

Pros: Worked well initially, ran all graphics programs at maxed out levels without any lag.

Cons: only compatible with a few motherboards.

Other Thoughts: I assumed that it was compatible with all 990fx motherboards, so I installed it in an asrock 990fx killer. I had no problems for about 6 months , then one day I smelled ozone and smoke when the computer went down. It had actually caught the motherboard on fire. I tested the cpu in a compatable mobo but it did not survive the event fully intact, neither did the ps. Stick with one of the three examples of mobo's given on newegg .

5 out of 5 eggsGreat processor

Pros: This processor is fast as h**l. You will want to make sure you are using a good cooling device with it though. I highly recommend a water cooling solution.

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsProcessor Has Heat!

Pros: * Great price
* Great Performance Value against cost.
* Powerful! This processor doesn't skip a beat with anything you throw at it. I have it running multiple VM's, alongside Cosmology@Home and this puppy keeps on barking in all the right ways.
* Will cause your gas bill to go down in the winter. This processor can heat your house for a fraction of the cost of a gas heater. :)

Cons: This isn't enough to take away an egg, but the processor really does generate a lot of heat when under full load.

Other Thoughts: This processor is installed on an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX using a Corsair H110 Extreme Performance liquid cooler. When I first tried running the proc under full load (using only two 140mm fans attached to the radiator), the proc hit 70 degrees Celsius... I had to add two additional fans to the radiator for a push/pull config and now the processor idles at 32 degrees C and tops out at 50 degrees C under full load.

Needless to say, make sure you have a big case with a lot of air flow and a solid cooling solution or you will have issues, overclocking or otherwise. When paired correctly with a proper cooling solution, this processor is an absolute beast. I am using a Corsair Obsidian 750D to house this monster.. and yes the 750D can hold a 280mm radiator at the top with a push pull fan config and still have wiggle room. Just a thought.

4 out of 5 eggsA Word From The Wise

Pros: This Thing Is A Monster , If you want raw power this is your cpu , it is difficult to get stable when overclocking but when you do it screams , but if you are thinking about purchasing this please do your homework , This CPU Is Intended to be used with liquid cooling only , Do Not Buy or think you are going to use an air cooler with this cpu it is too hot and air will not keep it cool enough under load , with great power comes the desire to see what it can do if you push it with air you will kill it

Cons: Not really a con but hard to overclock stable

Other Thoughts: Liquid Cooling ONLY !

5 out of 5 eggssmokes

Pros: Really fast and basically makes turning on my computer fun.
Multitasks like crazy.

Cons: Keeping the processor cool takes liquid cooling, I use the H80i which makes a lot of noise, irritating.

Other Thoughts: Bolted on the MSI 990 chipset mobo. Insist on a 990 chipset mobo, do not listen to others who think its OK to use with a 970 chipset. The processor was meant for a 990. Thank you for reading this.

5 out of 5 eggsNo Problems

Pros: Been Running Smooth.. OCed to 5.2 ghz. Running Koolance 1X3 180mm Rad + 1X2 180mm Rad
1 Pump.
Also chained in the Watercool 3xSLI GTX 580 vid cards.

Cons: Does Run hot, but it's a watercool processor.

Other Thoughts: Not sure why other users state their problems with the processor. Might be a bad processor. The watercool I'm pushing is less then some remarks, so I'm not sure where the issue may be.
