I know people think this is a bad CPU but no one has been able to say why other than heat!!

Low IPC - AMD CPUs do less work per clock cycle making them less efficient than Intel and thus consuming more power.

220W TDP - WTF. You will regret it once your power bill comes in. ;)

No DDR4 support - you are essentially one generation behind the memory timeline. There's only been 4 DDRx generations.

Old - released June 2013, around Intel Ivy Bridge. Nobody builds a computer with an Ivy Bridge CPU anymore.

Weak cores - People compare 2 AMD cores to 1.5 cores, so with that logic, you are buying an 8 core that performs like a 6 core.

HEAT! - You may not think it's a big deal now, but sit with a 50 degree C computer next to you and you will hate it.

The only thing it's got going for it is ability to be overclocked - and that's pushing more voltage through the already high-power consumption CPU, and even then it still suffers from the Low IPC rut.

You seem like someone hell-bent on getting this CPU. I can't stop you but please, for your own good, consider something else. An i5-6600K will eat this CPU for breakfast.

Well, AMD CPU's always run hotter than their intel counterparts. But that CPU is almost no more powerful than an I3-6100, and that CPU is only around 100$. It's price to performance isn't great, but that CPU has good overclocking potential. A friend of mine overclocked his to 6.0 GHz. This CPU is a better workstation CPU than it is for gaming, if you're comparing it to the i3-6100. If you compare it to the 6600k, which is ~250$, it's much better gaming CPU. It consumes a boat-load of power. And heat does matter, if your CPU runs hot, it could seriously damage it.
