AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This CPU has been Great, I owned it for about a year now and it handles 2 VMs running on top of my base windows system. Handles everything well.

Cons: A little Warm, even with Liquid cooling.

Other Thoughts: As I said a little hot.
I'm not sure how hot with stock cooling but it could be cooler on my liquid cooling.

If I could do it again I probably would have went with the other guys because of cooling.

OEM Production 2550L2D-MxPC Intel NM10 2 x 204Pin SO-DIMM Intel GMA 3650 Black Mini / Booksize Barebone System
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It works ok with Pfsense and a little better with untangle.

Cons: Not sure if it is the Nic cards but my network performance with pfsense is very sluggish. I am hoping I can turn this little box into a Tv Box instead.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying this for Pfsense I would recommend getting something with dedicated nic cards and a little more processing power. However the poor network performance might be due to driver issues because with untangle things run much faster, and untangle is much more resource hungry than pfsense.

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This thing really Surprised me. It is much Snappier than my i7 960 was, and its not even overclocked.
It handles everything I can throw at it. Even the new Next gen games run great on this.

Cons: Not really a con, but it says turbo to 4Ghz, I never seen it go that high, it always stops around 3.7.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why AMD is not the front runner in the PC/Laptop market. Being an intel fan all my life and now seeing that More money does not always mean a better product. This thing is so powerful I can be running 2 VM's running scrapebox and other marketing software and still be able to run Battlefield 4 all for 149$. Good Job AMD... You will probably have my business from now on.
