Awesome cpu 03/08/2014
This is the best bang for your buck you can get especially when you can find it on sale! Once all the cores start up for something like battlefield they just roll through it all l;like it's nothing. Also great for overclocking and or under clocking if you are into that stuff. With the smart turbo core enabled it automatically pushes mine a little past 4.2ghz while gaming because it averages around 58c while gaming on the stock cooler.
The cooler that comes with it is rather pathetic looking, it get's the job done although it does get really loud. I was advise in investing in some sort of water cooler or a aftermarket air cooler if you don't want all that noise, it is loud enough to hear over headphones if your tower happens to sit right next to you.
Although the cooler gets the job done it looks extremely shady. I was very doubtful it would do its job when gaming, however it keeps the temps right around 58c when all cores are about 70-80% so I can't say too much.
