Kick *** CPU from amd man if Intel can lower than price for once maybe I get core i series without burning the bank down for once.

Very fast, has out done everything i have thrown as of yet.

A step up from an APU, the lowest on the totem poll with the FX series by AMD however it's still a decent CPU with a decent stock cooler however I highly recommend that it's overclocked to at least 4Ghz to avoid bottle necking.

Fantastic multi-core CPU that packs a punch on a budget.

I had a dilemma whether to picked 6300 or 8320. I did some research my self and got some opinions from people that 6300 is just underclocked of 8320, so I can just overclocked the 6300 to get the same result as 8320. Overall 6300 is all I need basically + its cheaper.

I have not overclocked the cpu yet because I ran out of money, which is why I didn't include the cpu cooler. But I will buy CM hyper 212 evo in the future when I have money.

NO complaints, runs cool on stock cooler without overclocking.

Great CPU, and doesn't get hot!

Overall so far very pleased with the CPU - quick and responsive perfect for what I need. Nothing seems to phase this CPU and for the value of it right now at around 130$ you can't beat it with it's overclock ability.

Good budget processor. Not extraordinarily fast, but not extraordinarily slow, either.

Great CPU for the price, awesome for overclocking when combined with even a cheap liquid cooler. I got mine to go 4.6ghz.
