Fast little chip! 11/23/2017 12:20:16 PM

Pros: Bought it for my son's PC to give it a little boost, and it did exactly that. Helped with his gaming as well as whatever else it is that he does when i'm not paying attention, lol.

Cons: This chip gets crazy hot. Stock cooling is not going to be enough to run this chip properly.

Overall Review: Buy an aftermarket cooler with this.

5 years - and still running strong 5/31/2017 10:44:00 PM

Pros: This octa core processor has performed fantastic ! ! I have NOT experienced any issues with this unit. I installed it in a HAF Cooler Master 932 Advanced -High Airflow Full Tower- with EKWB cpu block, pump, 360mm Radiator (on top /push> < pull), 270mm Reservoir, and 1/2" ID tubing.

Cons: Reading the poor reviews from individuals that do not understand how to install high performance equipment.

Overall Review: Highly Recommend -- to those with the proper knowledge.

Works good. 12/15/2016 9:32:03 AM

Pros: Have not had any issues with it. It runs fast and installed with no problems. Read more below.

Cons: This thing runs hot. Get a liquid cooling unit for this baby as it roasts without one. The wattage is unnecessary and I am not sure as to why it is higher.

Overall Review: I already had liquid cooling for my last processor. Another issue I ran into, which is most likely my fault, was that it was not compatible with my 1st gen Crosshair mobo. I had sent this back thinking it was DOA, but it turned out that the motherboard couldn't handle the wattage. I bought the Gen 2 Crosshair mobo and it worked fine. Still, kind of wish there was a little more information regarding the requirements for newer stuff, otherwise expect to spend more that you'd like.

Warning: requires liquid cooling. 10/19/2016 3:59:48 PM

Pros: - Has exactly the same clock speed as it says it does
- Will install just as easily as any other processor using the same socket.
- That's about all I know

Cons: - Haven't been able to use the processor because it requires liquid cooling to keep from overheating. Without liquid cooling, it will overheat in anywhere from 1-5 minutes.
- The store page says nothing about requiring liquid cooling, however this: does.

Overall Review: - Be sure to buy liquid cooling. Even though it doesn't say that it's necessary, it is.
- Also, make sure to use high end thermal paste, cheap thermal paste will likely result in overheating as well.
- Will update review when I get liquid cooling for it.

Good bang for the buck. 10/16/2016 11:01:15 AM

Pros: Cheap compared to Intel CPUs with comparable performance values on the benchmark list.
I run most games on Ultra.

Cons: It does run hot and a cheapo cooler is not going to cut it. Having said that it does NOT REQUIRE water cooling. I use a massive Noctua NH-D15 SSO2 D-Type Premium CPU Cooler, NF-A15 x 2 PWM Fans that barely fits into the large Cooler Master Stacker Case.

Unable to run CPU intensive and unoptimized games on Ultra, I have to settle for high.

Overall Review: GTX 1080

AVOID IT! 6/8/2016 1:15:37 PM

Pros: It is fast but costs more than the money you spend on it.

Cons: I built this to upgrade a favorite PC I built about 8 years ago (which ran very well until Feb 2015). This thing NEVER ran cool under loads and I clean my stuff about every 5 months to keep all fans etc clear. I have a Corsair Hydro cooling it and just over the warranty period it will not come out of sleep mode. The PC starts to load then shuts itself off. During my teching I noted the tubes to the water cooler to be uncomfortably hot. Let me be clear.... this processor is EXTREMELY hot all the time! If you do not have a water coolant system it will not even run. It sucks a lot of power which makes your powersupply work harder and hopefully I did not fry my board with it. This being said... I regret buying it and am super mad that the warranty is past so I will be out another few hundred dollars! I have been an AMD guy on every machine I have ever built and for not being a rock bottom cheapo processor this surely has let me down. I am going to try to contact AMD but I do not expect much.

Overall Review: I would not want anyone else to make the same mistake I have with this processor. I build PC's all the time and none have took a trip to the junk heap this fast (just over a year) EVER with a build I have done. I am very annoyed and it has been weeks now with my favorite go to box out of commission while I scrape up cash and decide what the hell to do with fixing it. I hope my motherboard and ram are not fried also from this thing running so hot. Good luck if you try it. I had a 4 core before this and to tell you the truth it was not much faster than the 4 core was.... the quad lasted me about 8 years. You do the math.

Nice processor, REQUIRES LIQUID COOLANT 2/11/2016 6:05:01 AM

Pros: Really nice processor

Cons: It does not come with a cpu cooler, and you have to buy a liquid cooler or your cpu WILL overheat. This was not obvious to me when buying this prosser which is why I'm giving 3 star rating.

Overall Review: CPUs frequently come with coolers, I wouldnt buy this processor again try and find a deal that comes with a cooler. If you already have a coolant system buy this one, it is really nice!
