For a mid range CPU, this is a very good bang for buck. Will easily run at 4Ghz, and can get higher with some extra cooling/voltage. It does run quite warm (despite what the internal sensor reports) but with good cooling, its perfectly acceptable. Single threaded performance kinda sucks, as does Paired with a mid range graphics card, this makes for a very good system.
I did a lot of research and found that, at this time, this CPU is unbeatable in terms of performance/price. When all 6 cores run, it's awesome. I don't game, but when I ran a 720p video, the overall usage wasn't even 10%.
On stock cooler I'm around 31-36 degrees Celsius. When I ran stress tests, I went up to 61 degrees Celsius and that was it. I do have a good chassis that allows for a lot of air flow and I've got 6 fans going; no water cooling or anything though. Individual results may vary.
i bought this to upgrade from my old pII 965 be for my gaming computer and i was very happy and suprised at how easly it overclocked and how stable and fast it is now going a month or 2 strong and loving it paired it up with a asus m5a99x evo r2.0 and gigabyte 7950 windforce and games 60+ fps max settings whatever i play
If you are getting this to upgrade an older am3+ board. Or are on a tight budget. Its hard not to recommend this processor. However if you're a gamer. The 8320 is very close in price. With next gen consoles both sporting 8 cores. We are going to see a change in optimization. The extra threads could come in handy down the line to prevent a gpu bottleneck.
Used this CPU in a few build for friends now and it does not disappoint for the price. It games better then my x4 phenom and runs at moderate temperatures even boosted just with the stock cooler.
