    AMD FX-8370, everyone told me not to go AMD for CPU, I did it anyway and do not regret it, works fine, and I have not run into any bottlenecking.

    Best bang for your buck. Price per performance. I have had zero issues. I overclocked the cpu to 4.7ghz, never rises beyond 61c.

    Great processor. Not too hot and can OC up to an FX9590 if wanted. Much better options at this price but if on sale for under a hundo you should pick one up.

    I don't intend to overclock so getting this model was a no brainer.

    This is (in my opinion) the best FX processor. You could argue that this is the same CPU as the FX-8350, but it really does hold it's own. However, this CPU is ridiculously hot. I ran this CPU on a Corsair H55 and reached 95c under load. I then paired this with an H100i and it has been preforming a lot better. Clearly, I wouldn't recommend you go out and buy one as of 2019. Most would say, "Upgrade to Ryzen as soon as possible". However from a professional's stand point, until you personally feel like it's time to upgrade and move on; that's when you should. I don't recommend you over-clock this CPU however. With it's temperatures high enough as it is, it's not possible to get higher than 4.2ghz without going over 95c.

    So happy with this processor, OC'd to 4.8 without a breaking sweat. Air cooled stays under 60C all the time. Haven't had a single issue.

    Plenty fast, its unlocked, stays cool with cheap coolers. All around worth it for the money.
