Pros: quick. Vishera. cores+threads. 95w. runs cooler than the old Zambezi architecture
Cons: absolutely garbage stock fan. I bought a cooler Master hyper 212 EVO to go with it and that is much better.
Other Thoughts: this processor may be the best in the sub 130 dollars processor range. I upgraded from the old Zambezi architecture and it's so much fast and even more overclockable even on air cooling. I'm pushing 4.4 GHz and it runs under 65c at load. matched with a 970 Mobo this is great.
Mobo: MSI 970 Gaming
CPU: AMD FX-6300 Vishera
PSU: Rosewill HIVE 650
RAM: adata 2x 4GB
GPU: EVGA GTX 760 2GB ACX
HDD: WD Blue 1TB 7200 RPM
Pros: quick, looks great, BIOS is awesome
Cons: maybe use some more PCI slots, can only run sli/crossfire 2 way.
Other Thoughts: looks appealing, fits well, nice MSI construction. using with a FX-6300 Vishera and it's so much better than the 760 GM I used to use lolREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Grand Theft Auto IV: Complete Edition [Online Game Code]
Pros: Runs almost like a 680
Cons: Initial cooling issues, none really
Other Thoughts: Owned this for 4 months now and initially, it would get really hot under load. After a few weeks of use though, it settled out at around 60C load 29 idle. Runs everything blazing fast. Even has PCI 3.0 so it'll run faster when mobos update to 3.0
Great card. Getting another for SLI and then I'm going to forget about my power. I'll be set for awhile.
