easy overclock. Its a beast
POWERHOUSE!!!! This thing rocks!
very good for its age
Overclocks well and is old but is running just fine in 2018
Still runs great even without much OC'ing
A beastly CPU, I got mine for £80 on ebay (usually goes for cheaper). Absolutely chews through games, VR and 4K titles, and productivity tasks.
Only problem is you'll need an X79 motherboard if you want to oc. These are usually very expensive; I got mine for £150 on ebay. easily worth it though. Only thing comparable is the R5 1600.
