4 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU, Bad Fan/Thermal Paste

Pros: GREAT CPU! Great performance. 4.0 Ghz CPU with the amazing AMD price point.

Cons: DO NOT USE THE STOCK CPU/THERMAL PASTE! It was fine for a couple months, and then my PC started shutting down. After diagnosis, I seen it was because my CPU was running at about 70 Celsius in just idle. I bought a water cooler ($60 from Corsair) and my load temp went from 70 to 27. I seen the reviewer above saying to NOT USE THE STOCK FAN/THERMAL PASTE and I didn't heed his warning. Ignoring his advice almost cost me my CPU, don't let it happen to you. This is a great CPU, so get a different cooling item for it and you will not regret it.

Other Thoughts: Buy it! But get a water cooler or better fan/thermal paste.

5 out of 5 eggsYUP

Pros: STILL relevant, 2 years later. Still impressing friends and piledriving through processes (pardon the pun). Its everything you want in a non top of the line I7 processor. BEST processor for the money IMO.

Cons: ?

Other Thoughts: If you can get it. do it. make sure youre mobo can fit it

5 out of 5 eggsFx-8350

Pros: Fast... What else you need? (Well, coming from a q6600, this new CPU is fast)

Cons: None so far. Even the heatsink is doing the job at stock speed.

Other Thoughts: I feel confident in this CPU. I think I won't need to upgrade it at least for 2-3 years. Just hoping I'm right.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for buck AMD CPU

Pros: Definitely one of the best bang for buck AMD CPU

Cons: Stock cooler doesn't give you good temperatures, I had to order a Hyper 212 evo which has been working great in a case with not a lot of airflow.

Other Thoughts: I love it

5 out of 5 eggsWorth every penny

Pros: - 4GHz stock. Handles anything I can possibly throw at it. The only time I have ever lagged my computer out was when Media Monkey had a derp moment and tried to load 380 songs with "play now" shell extension, one instance of media monkey for each song. I think even then, I ran out of RAM first.
- 8 cores means you will run out of RAM and hard disk read speed loading and running programs before this guy ever lags.
- Can overclock very easily. I already have the settings saved on my motherboard for 5GHz overclock, but I simply have no need for it, since stock 4GHz can handle anything with ease.
- Very cheap for the performance
- Runs all of my games with no problem
Natural Selection 2, Crysis 1/2/3, Battlefield 4, Heroes of Newerth, DOTA 2, PS2 emulation, Skyrim, Starcraft 2, Hearthstone, CS:GO, GTAV, PlanetSide 2, Titanfall

Cons: Will get hot with stock fan and heatsink while working on processing shaders and textures in games, or heavy file conversion and image processing tasks.

After a few months, I grabbed a Corsair H80 that was "refurbished" (but brand new in the box), and threw it on top of some Arctic Silver thermal paste, this guy almost never goes about 30C now, and usually runs around 24-29C.

I can't comment on its power usage, though I imagine it is rather high. I have a Cooler Master silent pro m2 720W.

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend getting a better heatsink, or preferably a liquid cooler to put on this CPU. It will solve all of your heat issues, and this CPU will really shine without making your room roasting hot.

I've had this CPU for nearly 2 years now and it hasn't choked up once

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome CPU

Pros: Great performance, runs cool. 8 cores of pure power

Cons: Was not working correctly with my RAM at its stock speed, but that is motherboard related.

5 out of 5 eggsJust a monster beast

Pros: This thing is just a beast. Handles everything I do.

Cons: The stock heat sink it comes with will not be enough

Other Thoughts: If you do get this processor, do yourself a favor and buy a better cpu cooler or even go with a liquid cooled one like I did. This processor seems to run a bit hot so make sure u keep this beast as cool as you can.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: ***Upgraded from a 965 BE.

-The 8 core multitasking capabilities are truly great. It seems like no matter what you try to run on this thing it just doesn't stop!
-the 4.0GHz speed is actually pretty fast. Paired with a 560 Ti (getting a 970 soon) this thing brought about 20 more FPS in Shadow of Morder's in game benchmark on average. I also play WoW, and while the game doesn't require much, it was still a noticeable difference loading into the game, new areas, etc. Cut the time in half I'd say.
-still am3+ so can fit into many amd boards (see below for more, however)*
-great price for the value. The usual asking of ~$180 is nice, but I got it for $140 (from different site) so it was really a no brainer on a semi-budget.
-overclockable**
-decent temps

Cons: -Don't care much for the heatsink. It will keep you out of danger levels under stress, but living in Texas I would be concerned around summer time as to how well it holds up.

Other Thoughts: *As I stated above, this CPU fit into my Asrock 970 Extreme3 board, but it did come with some fiddly results at first. I flashed the BIOS before installing the chip, and put it in with the stock heatsink and fan. It started up alright and ran well for a couple hours, but then everything would freeze up completely forcing a hard restart.
Eventually this translated into complete shutdowns, and then finally not starting at all! However, I got it started up one day and its worked ever since. I readjusted the GFX card, switched around the RAM, and installed the evo 212 cooler. All I can think is that it was maybe overheating but it wasn't being stressed much and that doesn't explain it not starting? Working great now though for about a week of no hiccups.
**The processor can be overclocked very easily, but obviously not with the stock fan. Go ahead and grab the 212, as it works extremely well with this CPU. Idle temps in the low 20s and mid 40s (if that) under heavy game load.

Overall great chip, but I would recommend a)grab a newer model MB and b) grab better cooling to go with this bad boy. It deserves some pampering.

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a power house

Pros: Wow this processor can handle most anything you throw at it. I can easily run steam (while downloading games), download programs on chrome, and watch YouTube with no sweat. Combined with a solid graphics card, you can go far.

Cons: While its multitasking is superb, an Intel processor can do more with single core processing.

Other Thoughts: Note I'm not saying Intel is better, I love my AMD, it is what you want in your computer.
