I wanted to test the FX-4100 but will probably go for a FX-6350 or a FX-8350 or even the new FX processors. Just trying to enjoy this CPU for now. But everything seems great, could not ask for more out of a budget build. Mainly Starcraft 2 build but will branch out to other games in the future :) I consider this my wife's computer for business and everyday use when she needs it (she does light gaming) but I occasionally use it. Happy building everyone!
Stable at 4.6GHz Cooler Master 212 is a beast of a cpu cooler. Never went above 55C temp.
