Pros: I run this in a day to day gaming machine as well as recording software, and some HD (What is HD but i digress) video editing and graphics . never gives me a problem. the fan isnt all that loud on quiet mode and temps do not raise dramatically . Case temp never gets abouve 50 degrees c , and thats with it being in a closed desk .
Cons: Not really any that I can think of, it is subject to the everyones build and uses like anything it may not do everything well , but i have yet to find any real flaws.
Other Thoughts: Best bang for the buck and it simply works well for me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD FX-8120 Zambezi 8-Core 3.1GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8120FRGUBOX
Pros: OS windows 7 64 , I am using mostly for goofing with a little gaming, audio recording with protools 7.4 and tracktion 4.1.2 . Running a virtual machine of xp constantly with some really load heavy iterator type stuff. Not a single complaint, with a 2006 video card at 512mb. Temps stay around 52c when cruising.
Cons: I hear the heat sink is hard to remove with out messing up the chip, so far not a problem for me, but the whole amd line is like that. If you an overclocker you should buy a high line chip as I could see this being a little sensitive to that.
Other Thoughts: If you are running any recording software this chip works great, I bought it for that and it does a great job. I edit some video as well and never even blinks at the work.READ FULL REVIEW
