Experience: 10 Days
- 8 cores
- Pretty fast cpu
- Nice packaging
- Stock fan suck
- Runs hot
Built my machine and was getting idle temp of 60c. Reseated it twice with different amounts of AS5 and got it down to 52c. Finally purchased a third party fan cooler and it's now at 39c idle.

Good CPU, good overall system price
price premium for the metal case or guarantee of overclocking capacity ?
I do some development and this beast is good for me.
FYI, timed linux kernel compilation (my cfg): 2min vs. 17 min for my previous (temporary) CPU (Athlon II X2 245).

A nice thing is that it gets very quiet when idle (1.4GHz).
When busy+overclocked (currently very stable at 4.062GHz), my Antec Earthwatts 650W PSU is making new noises.
So you can know when the computer has finished its work !

I took this one over the 8120, because I'm stupid and I don't want AMD to die.

Experience: 4 Days
very fast cpu
Very good processor for the price. This is a processor that is designed for overclocking it does get up to some pretty high speeds.

Experience: 10 Weeks
-faster than my old CPU
-packaging saved the CPU
-tons of heat
-does not perform as well as a i5 2500k in gaming
Good processor overall if you are to upgrade from a older chip but id get ivy bridge or piledriver if they are not much more

Experience: 4 Months
nice and fast
no hassle
8 cores of power
runs a little warm
stock heat sink woefully inadeaquate
all in all a nice upgarde from the quad core althoough the heatsink issue causes concen for all out performance.
my upgrade to a hyper212+ coolermaster cooler cured that.
this with a 7850 ati 2 gb card put my futurebenachmark 11 scores to 5900.(also the 2 hotfixes from microsoft for the fx were a big help)
prices have come down for this cpu and i would recommend for any multimedia system

Experience: 11 Months
Great price and performance
Horrible stock fan
A lot of people have some bad things to say about this cpu's performance. It's true that it does not perform as good as others for single threaded applications (but is still fast), but for multi-threaded apps it is amazingly fast. I use this cpu for 3d rendering and if I wanted just a little more performance, I would have to spend almost double. The stock fan that comes with this cpu is horrible and should be replaced. I will definitely buy this processor again.

Powerful right out of the box, only gets better.
Extremely poor heatsink and fan.
This processor is awesome. Out of the box you get wicked performance, and it only gets better. However the heatsink and fan included are extremely poor quality, I would highly recommend getting a bitter heatsink if you are going to overclock this.

Experience: 6 Months
overclocks price bench 8 cores ,,,
this is very good overclocker , very good price 8 cores unlocked 3.6 ghz very very very nice

Experience: 3 Days

Runs super fast !
Overclocked to 4.9GHZ !
None Yet
Super awesome CPU that runs everything without any problems ! I also overclocked it to 4.9GHz using my Corsair H80 CPU cooler. Best CPU I ever had yet ! I recommend it to everyone who can afford it !

Experience: 5 Months

Stable, fast
Good product, stable and fast. I didn't see any problem with this processor. It's working well

Comment: "If you're considering buying new, I feel like the 2500K is a better overall part. You get more predictable performance across the board regardless of application type or workload mix, and you do get features like Quick Sync. In many ways, where Bulldozer is a clear win is where AMD has always d
