It's fast, Plain and simple, 6 cores (no sorry, 3 modules) Clocked at 3.8ghz with a 4.1ghz turbo, well, we don't see very many CPU's with stock clocks going over 4ghz, heck I have mine oc'ed to 4.3ghz. It stopped the bottleneck on my 560ti448 so BF3 runs flawlessly.
There is one problem with this CPU, well with the FX series in general, which many have discussed. The per-core performance isn't as good as it should be.
Perfect example: Borderlands 2 is being CPU bottle-necked (It only uses 2 cores I think), and 2 4.3ghz cores really shouldn't be causing a bottle-neck in that game, but alas... they are....
For that, I knocked off a star....WOOPPPS AMD
