awesome. 6/22/2017 8:27:58 AM

Pros: it runs my gskill 2133 MHz ram at its rated speed.
doesn't get as hot as people say it does

Cons: it wasn't free

Overall Review: i wasn't really expecting my ram to kick up into full speed because its an old amd fx processor and i have read a lot of things saying amd fx series of processors don't like 2133 MHz ram? but im happy that my ram finally gets up to speed. this thing is a rather nice step up from my old fx 6100

Great product. Easy install. Works even better than expected. 6/12/2017 3:09:11 PM

Pros: it was so easy to install. It seemed to run good at first, but after a few minutes, it was sluggish. some programs wouldn't run at all. BUT -- the problem was NOT the CPU. Repeat. It was NOT THE CPU! I researched and found it was Windows (not surprised). I would advise you to have Windows on a separate hard drive just for unexpected Windows problems. when when changing to a faster CPU, sometimes Windows doesn't understand the communication from the new CPU and doesn't read the new speed or the number of cores. Once I re-installed Windows (I have Windows 7) it worked like it was supposed to. I love it! I recommend it to anyone wanting a higher speed harder working CPU.

Cons: [ have no cons for this product. My only con is with Windows. :-)

FX8370 Still a good option 5/22/2017 1:18:58 PM

Pros: Great performance, overclocks to a perfectly stable 4.55 ghz on a cheap motherboard, artic silver 5 and a wraith cooler. Overclocking through the multipliers is much safer then front side bus. Unstable frontside bus causes data corruption and eventual sindows failure. So do not overclock on on most intels.

Cons: Hot, be sure to use a quick shut off power setting, if you run this beast all night you will be sweating in your sleep in the summer.

Overall Review: with eight fully unlocked cores clocked at 4.55 ghz everything is very fast compared to my Q6600. Go intel if you just want a gaming system, but if you want to listen to pandora, unzip massive files, and do alittle 3d designing or gaming in the meantime then youll need the extra hardware. With no onchip graphics to worry about.

Best current gen cpu imo 11/9/2016 5:47:56 PM

Pros: It's running @4.75ghz and well under 60 degrees with my enthusiast air cooled setup (a Silverstone Heligon HE01 with 5 Silverstone FHP141's in a jet engine type compression line with tolerable noise and better than small and med. liquid coolers cooling capacity), the 8350 maxed out at 4.64ghz and over 60 degrees with higher voltage requirement and I haven't even pushed the 8370 to the max yet and it's beating the best I could do with an 8350

Edit: I got it to over 4.9ghz but not stable, air has its limits, 4.76ghz is stable though with my MSI 990FXA Gaming mobo

It's not an intel chip therefore it is affordably priced

Faster than an 8350 and overclocks faster than a stock 9590 without much trouble

Cons: It's not as fast at single threading as intel is, like a 3.5/5 compared with 6700k but almost tied with the 6700k for multithreading (confirmed with cpu-z benchmark tool)

Overall Review: I would recommend amd over intel any day, this is a beast chip if you're a gamer you'll like this better than the other 8xxx chips and probably the 9xxx chips (I haven't personally used the 9xxx chips as they require water cooling), though admittedly it's not as fast as a 6700k it also doesn't require a new motherboard and ram

Fast Performance, Runs Hot 9/20/2016 8:09:57 AM

Pros: - Fast performance, clearly faster than my older 6 core Phenom II
- Great for gaming

Cons: - Runs hot, but not unexpectedly...they all do
- Stock cooler is insanely loud (think jet engine loud)

Overall Review: I wasn't sure if I could get my new liquid cooler (Corsair Hydro Series H100i V2 Extreme Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm) installed in my new case, at first...so I used the stock cooler with this CPU for the first day. What a bad idea that was. The stock cooler was insanely loud (jet engine loud) and by the time I got my liquid cooler installed and was using it, I noticed a 20 degree decrease in temps. So, the point is to use something other than the stock cooler, if you prefer something even remotely quiet and you'll likely get better temps using a cooler like the one I bought. At it's peak, I believe my temps for the CPU have read to around 46 degrees Celsuis (114.8 F), but that's unusual. My average usage watching videos or playing games has been around 34 C (93.2 F). I will say, though, that the cooler I bought is also loud, unless I put it in "fixed" mode...whatever that is.
