5 out of 5 eggsGreat price for a great Processor

Pros: Used one of these in my first build, I use the computer for everything so it's on more often than not and I've had zero issue.

Cons: Stock fan and heat sink aren't the best but that's not news.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely buy again.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Processor for the price

Pros: This processor is amazing for the price you're paying. I built a gaming rig with one of these and I love my performance. Anyone building a budget PC should most definitely consider one of these bad boys!

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I see all of these other reviews saying things like "wish it had a better heat sync" and "I've seen 4 core CPUs run faster than this"...well that was probably a $250+ i5. You're paying a little over ONE-HUNDRED dollars for a 6-core processor that is able to be over clocked to 4.2ghz. Quit whining or buy something more expensive. Don't give this CPU a bad rep just because it didn't meet your incredibly high expectations. That's all I have to say. Keep doing what you do, AMD.

2 out of 5 eggseasy to install, it works but...

Pros: the CPU works
stays under 55C with my Cooler Master vortex plus
the CPU works good in my gaming rig paired with a GTX 660 3GB
i have had this CPU for 6 months

Cons: this CPU that i have will not be over clocked to its max at 4.1GHz only at 3.9GHz very disappointed. i currently don't remember the voltage i set it at.

Other Thoughts: i will recommend this product but be sure you buy the warranty just in case you get a potato CPU that overclocks bad.
But other than that its good.

2 out of 5 eggsHardware Accelerated Execution Manager HAXM for android developers not supported on AMD processors

Pros: For the price if your not planning to develop android software it's a good buy

Cons: Intel Hardware Accelerated Execution Manager (Intel® HAXM) is a hardware-assisted virtualization engine (hypervisor) that uses Intel Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT) to speed up Android* app emulation on a host machine. In combination with Android x86 emulator images provided by Intel and the official Android SDK Manager, Intel HAXM allows for faster Android emulation on Intel VT enabled systems.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor !!

Pros: Runs 24/7 as my Computer is on 24/7

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Have to say, these amd Processors are a GREAT buy for the money !! Compared to Intel which is twice the price and does just the same amount of work. I believe you get a Great CPU for the money !! Buying it again for my second Build

5 out of 5 eggsFX6300 wow

Pros: Amazing overclocker, and inexpensive.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: On a cheap gigabyte mobo and an old school arctic freezer pro 7 cooler from an old am3 rig I was able to get this bad boy up to 4.2ghz, that's a 700mhz overclock and it's cool and stable never going over 45c

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Processor!

Pros: Installed easily, Been running great with no problems for a over a month. Boot time to me is very fast, as well is opening and closing out programs. I have no intention's of dealing with overclocking.
I'm running this processor with stock fan and heatsink on an MSI 970A-G43 motherboard, 8 gigs vengeance ram, NZXT case and MSI 960 4G GPU. I built this rig on a budget to play ARK, 7 days to die, Battlefield and Mechwarrior Online.

I'll use ARK for an example, It takes about 45 seconds to load the game from the title screen and I'm averaging 55 fps at stock high settings. Minimizing game with windows key has a little hiccup but it's not bad. I can run explorer and whatever while the games running in the background with no issues. According to the case's temperature readout, CPU idles at 40 degrees C and the highest I have seen it pegged out was 70 degrees C after an extensive gaming binge. The Fans picked up and the temp dropped and leveled out after that.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend this processor for a budget gaming PC build. This was my first PC build and I'm quite happy with its performance. Thank you Newegg for your excellent service.
