This review is from: AMD 760K Richland Quad-Core 3.8GHz Socket FM2 100W AD760KWOHLBOX Desktop Processor
Fastest processor owned to date.
Heatsink. 'nough said.
The original temperature reads were alarming to say the least... (70C at idle) however after doing some research i found that for some reason these processors run hot out of the box regularly. (would have been nice for AMD to include a heat-sink to compensate for this) however, not worth removing a star for. It still never over heats dangerously.. even playing Crysis 3 on High, with 16x AA. At a price of only $89.99 you can't really justify any negative emotions about a product this good. lol.
If you're going to buy this processor and plan to overclock, I would personally recommend going with an aftermarket heat-sink. I personally purchased the EVO 212 just to be safe.
But can honestly report no reading above 70C while under heavy load.
I will also add... she has barely any thermal paste on her (if any) I almost returned her originally thinking i got a lemon CPU (cleaned for reboxing/return)
If you've read this far.. just buy the thing!
