Pros: Excellent performance, top notch instruction sets, incredibly fast processors, encodes like a dream, plays games like a dream, nice and stable.
Cons: doesn't talk to me. doesn't make me breakfast in bed. will produce large amounts of heat.
Other Thoughts: watch your temperatures. this was never meant to be aircooled. i got mine with a asrock fx990 extreme 9 mobo, a corsair h60 hybrid water cooler, and a HIS gpu (i ended up giving it to my sister since my gtx 260 core 216 was way better) for around 700 bucks. after looking at all pieces, the cost of the cpu was 271 bucks. talk about a deal! as always, newegg is best :) if you're looking for a new cpu and dont think you'll have the money later, GET IT NOW! it's a great cpu! one other thing: when i pressed it with prime95 and seti@home, the temperatures stabilized.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: COOLER MASTER RR-B20-N620-GP 120mm Rifle CPU Cooler
Pros: love it, keeps my thuban overclocked at 4.0ghz at a chilly 100f, idle 70f/23c
Cons: it cost money?
Other Thoughts: listen, if you wanna overclock the thuban, this thing will work like a charm, i got the phenom 2 x6 1090t black edition and installed this on my m3n-ht deluxe/hdmi am2+ motherboard on top of my thuban, at 3.2, it never went above 90f, even with turbocore on, so i upped it to 250mhzX16@1.475v
idle (same as 3.2)
Full 100%load on all 6 cores: 90-100f, depending on the temperature of your house
Pros: high multi-tasking abilities, turbo core is pretty amazing, unlocked multiplier, low thermal output, AM2+ compatibility
i have this in my main pc, which i haven't upgraded yet to the newer chipset; eventually. future proof indeed. this thing overclocks easily as well. just a quick... elaboration on vcore: it kicks in anytime less than THREE are fully utilized, so basically anytime any of your processors are not being utilized, they will under-clock the multiplier to 8x, and clock the used core to 24x (these are default numbers). i thought it was simply a gimmick, it is not, and it is a great addition to an already amazing processor.
My frames are not suffering; in fact, they seem a little better, but not by much: when i check to see what the processor is doing, typically only two cores are utilized. AMAZING!
Cons: nothing. it doesn't make pancakes for me?
Other Thoughts: Rig:
