Pros: Octo-core - when fully utilized (read: ≤DX11 games do -not- fully utilize multi-core CPUs), this CPU is an absolute beast.
In gaming, Mantle/DX12/Vulkan unlock this CPU's true potential.
In productivity, this CPU performs spectacularly.
Cons: Binned from FX-9590 batch (speculation) - branding of inferiority/lack of potential; makes overclocking far more difficult.
High TDP: higher temperatures can result in shorter CPU lifespan.
Terrible performance in single-threaded applications (read: DX11/9 games, namely MMOs)
Other Thoughts: I bought this CPU by mistake while shopping for a 9590 18 months ago. Upon removing it from the Newegg box, I realized my mistake. Since Newegg only covers replacement-only with CPUs, I figured I would make do with what I had; it did come in a combo deal with a Corsair H80i (practically free) at a time when the bundled AMD coolers were unavailable.
I burned it in (stability test) and then looked into overclocking it towards the 9590 stats. Complete failure. My chip only overclocks a max of +1%. Bottom of the barrel in the binning.
Used with: ASUS Crossfire V Formula-Z
32GB Radeon Gamer Series DDR3-2133MHz CL10
ASUS AMD Radeon R9-290X DC2OC
Corsair H80i greased with Arctic Silver Céramique.
Pros: Compatible with VESA mounting. After 6 years of ownership, it still works.
Cons: Stand cracked early. Display refuses to cooperate with HDMI input - use of HDMI results in screen offset, large margins, or just completely won't work. I have come to the conclusion that either the HDMI port is possessed, or ACER should stay out of the monitor business.
Power button is flimsy, and not reliable.
Adjustment buttons are difficult to work with if monitor is positioned at a height that is comfortable.
Speaker is a joke.
Other Thoughts: I purchased this monitor because it listed HDMI input. The rain dance required to get HDMI to work is negated once either the computer it is connected to, or the monitor are powered off.READ FULL REVIEW
