What's not to like: power processor on the cheap! 07/19/2013
What's not to like. It's fast and powerful and cheap. Did I say cheap? This is really a heck of a deal!
It's not faster or cheaper?
I got this for a budget build in a [very cool] budget case with budget ram and budget fans and budget hard drive and.... Well, you get the picture. But here's the thing: if you just get everything on Shell Shocker, its shocking how little it costs to put together one fantastic computer. The 965 Black is a great component of that kind of system.
By the way, I have an aftermarket cooler installed (forget what) to keep the temperatures down and am using a 95W CPU motherboard. There was some ambiguity in the online boards about what this CPU needed so that, at any rate, is how I'm managing the situation.
