Pros: Fits a Hyper 212 EVO. Holds my Gigabyte R9-280x REV2, decent cable management, usb3.
Cons: Top 140mm fan makes a grinding noise sometimes, but just a light tap fixes that.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX
Pros: Paired with a R9 280x, this baby flies. No bottle necking either. Then I tried overclocking. This thing is a dream! 4.7ghz on a Hyper 212 evo, 30c just browsing the web, 78 max while running Prime95. Battlefield 4 on ultra, always above 60fps! For $120(I got mine on sale for 99), this beats out any i3, and then some. All in all, a great processor for the money.
Cons: Heat sink is cheap, but that's to be expected. Go with a minimum of a 120mm cooler.
