4 out of 5 eggsIt's a good cpu

Pros: Fast! 3.6 GHZ
4 Core 8 with hyperthreading.
Do not heat so much!

Cons: Price
Can you really see a différence with AMD FX Series. The différence between amd and intel cpu is too expensive.

Other Thoughts: An AMD fan Boy!

5 out of 5 eggsThe BEST

Pros: FAST and stable

Cons: stock fan/heatsink

Other Thoughts: The fastest processor I ever owned. Very stable, the speed stays consistent. Pages load faster than I can blink my eye. With Turbo Boost enabled in the BIOS it goes to 4Ghz. overclocking feature not needed or wanted. Perfect CPU for SSD's. I'll never undestand why Intel always includes that inferior fan/heatsink with every processor. Nobody uses it. It's just a waste of aluminum.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat am I going to do with all this power?!

Pros: Incredibly fast, doesn't even really stress the stock heatsink despite high TDP, superb multitasking ability

Cons: Price, obviously, but you get what you pay for. Not overclockable (obviously, it's not a -k)

Other Thoughts: This was, at the time of my purchase, the fastest non-unlocked chip I could get. I was going to get another i5, but decided to splurge and get one of these instead. Since I'm not an overclocker, I didn't see any need to go a step beyond and get the slightly faster 4790K.

The title of my review isn't a joke. I literally don't know what to do with all the processing power I have. The bottleneck for my system is actually the hard drive, not the processor or memory - most of the time, the system is sitting around waiting for files to load. Rarely does my CPU usage even climb above 30% under the heaviest stuff I can throw at it. I'm going to be seeing about donating processor time to initiatives like BOINC - I've got nothing else to do with it!

This is an amazing processor, and if you're looking for something that's reasonably future-proof, well, I'd think this chip is it. I think this thing will still be competitive in seven years.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

Pros: The days of risking bending a pin or two on installation are over, thankfully. Been benchmarking it out and it exceeds my usage requirements, but has enough leftover for future applications.

Cons: As usual the stock heatsink and fan allow it to run a bit warmer than I care for. I blame the thermal paste that comes from the factory on the processor. I'll give it a week, but I may pull the assembly back off, clean it and apply some Arctic Silver 5 which I trust. I docked a star only because of the factory thermal paste.

Other Thoughts: I was torn between this and the new AMD 8 core CPUs, but decided to stick with what I know as it appears those AMD chips still run a bit warmer than I feel comfortable with. In my way of thinking, if you need to watercool a stock setting CPU, there is an issue there and a ton of wasted energy.
