Well rounded 04/08/2014
-Easy to overclock within AMD's drivers
-Very usable stock heatsink and fan included
-Very cost effective, got it around $139
-Good for gaming; although games don't generally use as much CPU power as there is available by any means, it's definitely good to have power to spare
-Games don't utilise 8-core CPUs very much...yet.
-Didn't really notice much of an improvement when upgrading from my Phenom II x 970 ... almost felt like a waste of money. I'm doing more multi-tasking than I was with my Phenom, simply because I have the need to now more than I did previously, so, not sure if my Phenom would have bottlenecked where the 8320 would do fine, but I will never know.
Definitely worth the price. I bought my Phenom II x4 for $150, which is more than I paid for this, which has 8 cores.
