Bought this to replace my athlon x3 cpu. and wow what a difference..Combined with my 16gb ram and gtx550ti it helped finish of an amazing gaming machine. Handles the hardest tasks with ease, including 3d rendering. Love it.

Got this a few weeks ago and has handled everything i've gave it with no slow down- i've built this with a as rock extreme3 motherboard, 16gb ram and a hd 6870. not seen any slow down in any games i've gave it either. Don't understand some of the negatave reviews i've seen for this, why spend more when this does everything you could want

If you love looking at synthetic benchmarks and spend a lot of time debating the difference between 73 and 77 fps in a game, or 5 seconds difference in a 2 hour rendering, and have more money to spend, you are probably better off with an intel something. This cpu is not "THE" speed demon. Is plenty fast to do everything you need to do with a pc nowadays, heavy gaming, rendering, browsing, compiling, zipping, whatever... in some cases (optimized sw) it can top intel's more expensive stuff (again, by the all important split second margin.), and relative performance will probably increase over time, as sw becomes more parallel, but I digress. The whole FX platform is cheaper than the intel "I" equivalent, and by a good margin. Just try to compare fx 8120 + sabretooth 990fx or any other medium-high quality motherboard with the i2500k + equivalent, and you will see what I am talking about. So if price/performance is the most relevant criteria to make your choice, go with this chip, you will not be disappointed. I am a software developer and I work with 3d (3dsmax) and at my workplace I have a comparable (but much more expansive) xeon e3-1230 based workstation-with an ssd drive etc. and, although I know the xeon should smoke the fx, I have to say that my machine (fx 8120, sabretooth 990 fx, 8gb corsair vengance 1600, crucial m4 256 gb)feels snappier. I am not a big overclocker but I am running my at 3.9 ghz (by raising the multiplier only) with no problem whatsoever on a scythe ninja 3b. I could push it way further but I don't feel the need, actually the chip was perfectly fine at stock speed, but I like a bit of fiddling :) . I can game pretty much everything at fullhd resolution with high/max details (radeon 6950).Read more ›

Did some research and for the price and my budget seemed the best option..... and it was!

If you are going to OverClock I suggest you don't use the stock fan in the tin get a proper "chiller" and don't forget (suggest) Arctic Silver 5 3.5g Thermal Paste

I am using the AMD OverDrive software to overclock it's gone from a 3.1mz to 3.9mz without any trouble at all and with no voltage increase (voltage I believe increases heat and wear and tear)
I will after some "research" copy the setting straight in to the Bios but as I was rebuilding a new rig so doing "baby steps" lol

I gave myself a £500 ish budget to build a new rig as I already had a Tall Tower and 750PSU from my old set up, so did a little research and came up the combination below. My rig operates at 16 degrees or less as I am doing this so got a cold draft, so this is running superfast super cold and most importantly super quiet, so this is my "gaming rig" played The Secret World (FunCom) on ultra so guessing this should do for at least a year lol

AMD are well known for delivering amazing performance at far better prices than Intel, who only have a couple of processors I personally would ever buy (which are still more costly than this beast). Once installed, it easily runs my most graphic-intensive games like BF3, Civilization 5 and The Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition maxed out at ~45-80fps, working with a Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 1GB GDDR5 and 8GB Corsair Vengeance 1600MHZ RAM, and renders HD video super-fast. All in all, very impressed and would recommend this easy-to-overclock processor and would say ignore the negative reviews.

This CPU is an absolute monster. With the motherboard I chose it overclocked straight off the bat to 4ghz and handles any and all tasks I throw at it with ease! So far for me at idle it has a temperature of 14 degree's and at max load it averages at 40 so even this is good. Would highly recommend it to anyone as it hits a very sweet spot in terms of price/performance.

I wrote my own Open CL program and had low expectations given ok performance on my I5 and Nvidia Gt540.
I was totally taken back by better performance by the bulldozer using OpenCl than Nvidia.
Way to go AMD ATI.

GPGPU can benefit from this parallel architecture.
