Kicking Development Work Station!! 01/07/2013
This review is from: AMD FX-4130 Zambezi Quad-Core 3.8GHz Socket AM3+ Desktop Processor FD4130FRGUBOX
Very Quick & Responsive, even on WD Blue 500GB HDD.
Surprisingly Quiet stock CPU Fan
Surprisingly Low / Cool CPU Temps ( cool to the touch )
More than enough horse power as a Development Machine
High Idle power usage.. bout it. But then again, your not buying this if your concerned about power..are you?
Though it is a 125w TDP CPU, at no time was I able to get the entire PC anywhere near that rating. Running 4 instances of CPU Burn In for 5 minutes pegging all four cores @ 100% yielded a max power usage of 96w @ 36c (though the temp seems low to me). Idle / avg power was rated at 62w to 84w per my P3 Watt Meter & 28c during normal use. Paired with an Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P Motherboard & 16GB of Kingston HyperX Memory... this thing flies! FX4130 = Happy Developer!
