    I my opinion the best bang for your buck currently out there.

    A very fast CPU. Amazing value. Easy to overclock obviously with endless potential. This CPU goes perfect with a watercooler due to it's overclocking potential and temperature. I've got it to go to 4.8GHz at 1.45V.* It now gets a slightly higher benchmark that a £220 i7.

    *(PLEASE do not use this for reference since suitable voltages vary per motherboard, power supply and cooler)

    It is still one of the best CPU you could get for its price! I used it for about two years. With appropriate cooler you can overclock it substantially. I primarily used it for rendering in Maya, Solidworks and Keyshot.

    This Processor is great for overclocking but if you overclock it from 4,2 to 4,8 or 5.0 GHz you need a good cooling solution because it heats very much.

    Great processor, showing a bit in age but can still handle itself well. First PC build ever so I don't have much to complain about.

    Love the value. Picked up one of the old sku's without the wraith cooler very cheaply. Overclock went smooth.

    from completed build Typical AMD Red/Black Build :P

    Nothing much i can say about it that is not already said else where. Decent CPU. Does what i need it to do. Will prob upgrade sometime in the future to Zen if its worth it.

    This thing has been running strong for about 2 years now! It was a great budget/performance for it's time. I would not recommend this thing in 2017. There are plenty of new and better processors out there. It still works for me for now but I will be upgrading soon.

    Also if you are looking for high frame rate games (100Hz+) you're going to want something with way higher single-core performance.

    I'm comparing this CPU to my old Phenom II X6 1075T which ran at 3.0 Ghz stock - OC to 3.8. So far the performance is only noticeable through benchmarks.

    I like that the FX chips have a higher max core temp at 70C rather than 62C. I like that the multiplier for this processor is unlocked, made OCing quicker and more convenient. I'm an AMD guy so I have nothing bad to say.

    Edit - 01-26-2016 - I'm OC to only 4.4 Ghz. I ran as high as 4.6 with combinations of base + turbo to 4.6, ran 4.5 for a while, and stock of course, but 4.4 is as high as I can get which gives a good temp under load. About 62C max ever seen under benchmark load, but max gaming load is about 55C.

    Edit June 22, 2019 - Just got to 4.5 OC @1.356V. (TEC added back to V10, not on this date but in general.) Temps are very good at max 55C.
