Works as advertised. Cheap compared to Intel Core i5 equivalent.

Not the best value for money but, as mentioned in some guides. If you got it at ~$50 or less then you're good.

from completed build My Very First PC Build!

Doing the job perfectly fine I seen it come up cheap on Ebay and took the chance and so far is running all games with no problems.

Cannot say anything bad about this processor. My original store bought PC is running pretty good for a good 9 months now. Even OCd to 5Ghz and still using the stock fan that came with it! Solid 5 stars.

Pros: This CPU works well for gaming. It can run most games and keep up with my GPU. Very easy installation.

Cons: Trying to unlock the cores lead to my PC not being able to boot, requiring me to reset CMOS. Is very slow with video editing and graphic design.

I used to hate the FX series because I'm a Phenom fanboy and Bulldozer and its brethren turned out to be huge disappointments, but I got a certain affection towards the FX4300, of all chips. While the build I used it in was not overclocked, I can tell you it does overclock well, right up to 5Ghz. For a LAN Party Build plus an RX460, it can beat the best FM2+ chips... Yeah, for a base Piledriver chip. If you're going to get this in 2017, ensure to find it as dirt cheap as possible, it can't be worth more than 30/40USD.
