Great CPU. Enough cores to last me into the future. Doesn't bottleneck anything else in my system.
great middle ground between a FX6300 and an FX8350. overclocks really nicely and it a great value. I like Intel and AMD, AMD was chosen because it was have the price of a comparable intel core i5 that could be overclocked.
I have yet to find a situation where this wasn't enough for me. Its not the best or the fastest thing out there but i got it on a good sale at the time and it destroys the quad core that was in my old rig.
It runs FAST for how cheap it his it's crazy. Why not go for a 3.9GHz processor for only $120 (I got mine for $100 on sale).
A veritable beast for the price I got it for. No issues with performance in any way so far. I had originally planned on keeping it at an overclock of around 4.5, but since AMD's Turbo Boost automatically brings it up to around 4.2 when needed I'll just hold off until/if I actually feel it needs it.
seems just fine, clocked it to 4.2 easy peasy
Does what is says on the tin, got it for about £90. Wouldn't recommend getting it if it's much more than that, it was the best value for money at the time.
It does it's job perfectly. Handles games well, but I wouldn't recommend such an old CPU at this point. Go for Intel or upcoming Zen architecture. I feel life Bulldozer and its branches are irrelevant in 2016 unless your build is <$600.
great cpu. fast cheap and an extremely noisy fan
Great CPU for the price, overclocked to 4.5 Ghz with a Hyper 212 Evo. I would still recommend waiting for AMD Zen though, as it promises to be much more efficient.
