AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I installed this CPU on a
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
and not the mobo I previously listed.

For the price vs performance this does pretty good.
It was installed with a 4 copper pipe heatsink on a
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
which gave me 1833mhz memory speed via a very nice bios GUI and defaulted the CPU to 4.1 or 4.2 ghz. No OC'ing by me but it looks easy.
I was able to easily unpark the CPU's using UnparkCPU for smoother access to more evenly distributed CPU useage and speed..
Runs cool and fast with good cooler.

Cons: Not a bad con but it's noteworthy to mention that the OEM cooling is insufficient for heavy CPU use but fine for non heavy gaming use and playing videos ect.
The temp calcs used to show temps is not as good as actual temp sensors which i hear AMD omitted . The calc method graphs weird and shows excessive heat when there is none.

Other Thoughts: G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-8GAB
.
GIGABYTE GeForce GT 420 GV-N420-2GI (rev. 3.0) 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 ATX Video Card
.
GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
.
AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor

All of the above was at my door at record speed early and free delivery on top of that.

My previous review was too short.

Pros: I installed this on a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

and 8 gb corsair DDR3 2000 memory,

500 PSU

and GIGABYTE GeForce GT 420 GV-N420-2GI (rev. 3.0) 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 ATX Video Card (really great video card for great price)

ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise

I could not be happier. Not OC'd but very fast.

Not an APU (yuk)

Cons: Temperature "sensor" shows CPU running way too cool. Just use a good cooling solution and it should be OK. Stock fan heat sink is questionable. 0 C is not reality.

Other Thoughts: CPU peaks at 4.2 ghz with no overclocking at all. No need to be tweaking the bios.
Arrived in two days, free shipping!!!
