Pros Runs great Easy installation Price is right - definitely not the fastest CPU on the block, but gets the job done even for gaming
Cons None as of yet
Summary I know some people have talked about this chip running hot, but even using the stock cooler I've had no issues whatsoever. Even under load I'm only in the 55 - 58 degree range and when idling I'm well under 30 degrees. I'll continue to monitor and may upgrade my fan if necessary, but no complaints right now.
On another note, NCIX was great - shipping was fantastic and customer service was spot on. Thank you!
Pros Great multitasker. Great overclocker. Put water cooling on it on a decent board and OC it like crazy.
Cons not as fast as intels top end
Summary Still a solid performer this chip gives great multithreaded performance. An intel chip will be better on a single thread, but don't overlook this chip, especially as the newer ones seem to be better binned.
Cons -she is a hot one. Scope out something better to cool it.
Summary Overall between my gaming and work and my kids on it over the last little bit here I have noticed a great deal of improvement in my system without doing to much. Benchmark scores and game now run at higher FPS because of it in my rig. would buy another and would suggest it to anyone that wants a reliable build on a budget.
AMD FX 8-Core Processor Black Edition Still unlocked for your overclocking pleasure, and still the only 8-core desktop processor around. Unmatched multitasking and pure core performance with a new architecture.
