Really solid performance especially with the minimal overclock I have got on it of 4.2 ghz

Fast, This cpu for as old as it is already is really fast. I havent seen the thing go past 50% usage yet, and ive done some pretty heavy use on it. ive seen the thing boost to 3.7 ghz so far so i would recommend if you found the right price for it.

EDIT: So i am able to make it turbo 100% of the time with this cpu. I dont have it turbo at 100%, but i can get it to turbo up to 3.9 GHz and i have seen other people get it to turbo to 4.0Ghz. I really want to see how a K series one would overclock!

Snappy Ole Sandy. 8 Threads for real cheap. Honestly only about a 12-15% loss in performance to an i7-6700 for a little more TDP... will take the trade. Pulled from a Dell Workstation that was dead like doornail

This CPU last 6 years for my dad and 6 months for me so far. I love it.

Even though it is over 5 years old it can still keep up with modern games

Still a great processor for gaming and can be found quite cheap. Would recommend over the fx 8350 any day.

So far, it's an oldie but a goodie. It's locked but can still handle hefty workloads with 8 threads. Per some reviews, it can still handle a GTX 1070 with no bottleneck so there's room for expanding.

It is astonishing that this holds strong in 2018! i have beenm gaming on it, multitasking, and overall it hasn't locked up once. cant wait to see what this thing'll do with a base clock overclock!!!
