Got it from 2017 and still slaying 1/21/2020 6:37:44 PM

Pros: - Played all the games I wanted in high detail (sometimes ultra)
- Way better than my FX 8350
- Performed well enough for CPU intensive games (Cities: Skylines, Total War, etc.)
- Supposedly easy to overclock, but I'll try it once my warranty runs out

Cons: - No fan included (I had a Hyper 212 EVO, but its something to consider)

Overall Review: First CPU I bought was the Phenom II and since then, I've always used AMD. Perhaps one of these days I'll try Intel, but they still can't beat the price for performance ratio AMD offers.

AMD starts making Intel afraid 12/31/2019 6:44:32 AM

Pros: Fast, stable, reliable, well worth the money.
Made Intel scared

Cons: Runs a bit hot
Stability at the beginning was not that good because of motherboard and windows support
Really sensitive to memory speeds
Doesn't come with a heat sink (knew that, but now they do come with it, so the questions is why AMD, why)

Overall Review: Would buy again if the 3000's weren't around
Windows power plan and motherboard microcode issues aside, it's been very stable and reliable.
Weird issues include base clock hovering at 3.7 without overclocking or individual core boost. Not sure if it's because of the main board or I just won the silicone lottery. BIOS has been reset several times, and base clock is still the same.

2 Years Later Still Greatest Bang for Buck Option 11/30/2019 9:04:47 AM

Pros: Best value back in the day.
Still plays AAA games, and ESports titles >120FPS.
Render the video later, easy.
Watch youtube....anything can do that.

Cons: Newer IPC tempting with Ryzen 2.
Will wait for change over past AM4.

Overall Review: 1600, 2600, or 3600 only options to consider for midrange.

Not an expert, and there's the trouble 11/24/2019 7:37:17 AM

Overall Review: Nowhere do I see advertised the fact this has no igpu. Not a big deal in itself, but it needs to be made clear to those of us who aren't experts on AMD hardware. I was trying to do the initial boot without my GTX 1070 installed, and wasn't getting very far!

Overall Review: Im a low end gamer with a very good system now.

Works well so far 10/24/2019 5:24:17 AM

Pros: I can't say a lot other than it works. The CPU was packaged well and the cooling fan supplied went on without too much of a fuss. My son is using this PC as a gaming unit, and he hasn't complained once.

Cons: Had a little trouble understanding mounting instructions for the fan and it took a little bit to figure out how to mount it to the motherboard we had purchased. Other than that, there are no cons I can mention.

Overall Review: I have always been a fan of the AMD processors over the Intel when building my personal rigs. I believe the performance is great for the price when comparing the two brands. I've only built this current rig recently, so only time will tell how well it continues to work.
