4 out of 5 eggsGreat CPU!

Pros: It worked straight out of the box. Good fast processor.

Cons: None of the processor itself, but the CPU fan and paste don't work as I thought. The CPU runs over 100 degrees F., which is kind of a problem. The processor hasn't overheated and fried, but I feel like it will. Get a separate water cooler.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you get a water cooler for your CPU.

Pros: Good for everything BUT gaming.

Cons: Unstable, bad power consumption for its performance. Overclocking can't really go passed 4.6ghz without a serious mobo.

Other Thoughts: LISTEN, don't get this CPU for gaming, get the FX-4300, it's a quad core 3.8Ghz, but its single thread performance is much better than this. MORE CORES IS NOT ALWAYS BETTER, particularly when gaming because almost no games are optimized for multicore CPUs. Every game I tried to play only used one core on this thing, and it bottlenecked my R9 390 so hard, I was getting 25fps average in ESO. Again, don't get this if you're going to use your computer primarily for gaming, look for high single thread performance.

5 out of 5 eggsOnly thing it doesn't do is make me dinner.

Pros: Price for performance this CPU is unbeatable. It runs Squad and all my other games on Ultra with no problems. Would definitely recommend.

Cons: Won't make me dinner

Other Thoughts: Runs cool, fast, and doesn't have a lot of problems. As a side not I would like to mention that the first one I received had bent pins but I was able to get a replacement within a week or so. Email me if you have any questions

5 out of 5 eggsAMD delivers fast quality products every time

Pros: I've always been a bit biased towards AMD, for the price of this CPU/spec wise, you would have to pay double or more for one of Intel's chips. This thing handles everything I've thrown at it. I always have some form of video/movie/game/skype going on at the same time on my computer (3 monitors :D) this thing has never hung up, hiccuped or otherwise shown me that I've been stressing it at all. 10/10 would buy this again.

Cons: She runs a little warm, having her over clocked to 4.5GHz will do that, upgraded my cooler and now she sits nice and cool at 33C

Other Thoughts: Computer specs are.

AMD FX 8350 4.0GHz over clocked to 4.5GHz stable.
32GB Ram (Do lots of video rendering)

5 out of 5 eggs2 years - no issues!

Pros: No issues at all, even after two-years. It also keeps me nice and toasty in the Winter; that's what I call good ROI!

Cons: Can't make me a sammich

Other Thoughts: I've had this thing running great for two years. Use it in my gaming machine for GTAV along with a GTX 980 and for the price it works great!!! Just buy it! You know you want to!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor

Pros: Runs like a charm.
Distributes load well over 8 cores to not overload itself.
Runs fairly cool with a proper set up.

Cons: Install was kind of tough and felt like I would break the processor; however, it is quite durable.

Other Thoughts: Recommend to anyone

5 out of 5 eggsIt' a Multi Tasker

Pros: Coming off a 34 bit yeah it's quick. I decide to get this one over AMD's 9590 because I didn't want to deal with potential heat issues. Still got the H100i GTX cooler and my 8350 couldn't melt ice. Ran Unreal Engine for about 4 hours and never ran into any heat threats or worse a shut down.

Cons: None so far, I do wonder how much it will put up with my rendering over time.

5 out of 5 eggsYep, Its that good! 5 Eggs!

Pros: - Super Fast Handles Everything thrown at it without hesitation.
- I have build multiple PC's for friends and family with chip. Everyone is a happy camper (including myself).

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: - Would Absolutely recommend over Intel.
- I have run both builds and for what most people are doing (heavy gaming, streaming, and video editing) it is flawless and for the price tag you cannot beat it.

5 out of 5 eggsit suffices for a cheap build, but would definitely upgrade to intel in the future

Pros: there's nothing wrong with it. great quality for the price. i have it overclocked to 4.7ghz at 1.5 volts for its maximum stable oc, but i hear it's different for everyone. i have it water cooled to stay at 45 under stress test, but it's high priced one, you don't need to put down more than 100 on a water cooler like i did if you want to reach max oc

Cons: i really wish i could have oc'ed it much higher.

Other Thoughts: i know having 8 cores seems appealing and all but you really don't need that many for gaming.
i don't know where the hell it gets its temps from, but when the temps go up it shows the temps go down and when the temps go down it shows them go up. i thought my high end water cooler was broken when it showed 60c when it was really at room temp. the software is ok to oc and stress test with but aside from that use HWMonitor to get temps, otherwise you could simultaneously fry your chip and void your warranty in one fell swoop. if you have your chip oc'ed to 4.7 with a stock cooler with a stress test running and it shows 15C (below room temp) something is wrong.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Capable product

Pros: -Good at multi-tasking
-Great overclockability, easy to learn how to do
-Great for a highish end budget cpu

Cons: -High Wattage
-Lots of heat, if you are overclocking after market cooler is a must! Even if its only a little
-Lacks in comparison to most intel products

Other Thoughts: -Overall this product has served me well for as long as I have had it! I look forward to my new i7-4790k I ordered, as it will be leagues ahead. The only good thing in comparison between the two is that its $300 cheaper.
-If you are looking for a cheapish/highish end multi core cpu, then this will work well. However if you are gaming, go for an i5, as even the lower end ones will be better for gaming then this thing.
