AMD FX-6350 Vishera 6-Core 3.9 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD6350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Awesome value, very decent CPU that was very reasonably priced.

Cons: I love lamp.

Other Thoughts: I'm not an OCer, but I am water-cooled and I can't get this thing to heat up at all with gaming (World of Tanks mostly -- which is single-threaded for some ignorant reason).

Want to eventually bring some OCing friends over and see what I can get out of this, but that's just for ego.

5 out of 5 eggs Updating from 2-stars review 12/03/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Lots of features.

Cons: Software scared the life out of me. See other thoughts...

Other Thoughts: I reviewed this in August, and had to RMA the first one after it burned out soon after installing the OS and it had a meltdown.

Got the replacement board, and since the OS and driver disk were already installed, as soon as I booted to desktop the software started screaming bloody murder. Scared me that I had another bad board so shutdown quickly. Double, triple-checked the fans and the CPU cooler, power cables, etc. Finally gave up and figured if it's gonna melt I might as well do it early so I can RMA it again.

So, I powered back up and muted the PC speakers and opened the software. Turns out, because I didn't have a fan plugged into one of the monitored ports, it figured a fan had failed.

TL;DR - If the software freaks out and tells you it's melting, make sure it isn't something like a stupid fan port that you aren't using.

5 stars to offset my earlier 2 stars and give it a pretty accurate 3.5 rating.

Other Thoughts: Needed this for a server upgrade for VM farm. Worked right away, been running strong for a few months.
