Pros: Very good performance for the money.
Other Thoughts: To JEFFERY W. I though I would write another review because of what you said about the GPU bottleneck.
I have two GTX 770 SLI and My FX 6300 does not bottleneck them. The Graphic cards used to be in an i5 setup and also i7 setup. Something is wrong with your overclock, motherboard.... something.
I think its only fair to say this so that people looking to buy this processor don't think it will bottleneck, It wont.
Pros: High capacity
Runs smooth so far
I have more storage!
Runs bout as fast as most mechanical drives.
I have too much storage now, but I can live with that.
Cons: 36,000 hours!!! 4 years of run time! But I knew that when I ordered, just hoped I would get lucky and get one with low hours!!
This backup drive will probably last a long time even though it has a lot of hours... I will find out.
Other Thoughts: Some reviews say their drive arrived dead, Hope they managed the drive in windows first.
Create a new simple drive.
Format new simple drive.
System will now recognize the hard drive.
Pros: I have been an Intel cpu user for the last 15 years. I was hoping not to regret getting this cpu over an i5 build.
Ive had i5 and i7 builds, so I can testify to the performance of the FX 6300 compared to these intel cpu's.
There is a small difference between the FX 6300 and the i5 3570k in some task's there is quite a bit of difference the i5 is noticeably faster.
But when I overclock the FX 6300 everything changes. This cpu overclocks beautifully!!
To experience this you must have, a good cpu cooler, a good motherboard is a must!!
Yeah people say but you have to buy a aftermarket cooler, Don't listen to that, my intel cpu's always have aftermarket cooler!!!
Basically, I have a cpu that performs as well as any I5 In gaming and general computer use. For $100 less.
The FX6300 runs cool and does not use a lot of power @4.7 GHZ.
Other Thoughts: Get this cpu....... and a good modern motherboard ...990 type.READ FULL REVIEW
