All in all these processors had never failed me ever and now (as always) they are relatively cheap compared to the performance they produce. I was thinking to upgrade to the new ryzen series but it is not really cost effective compared to the price of the energy I can save. So these processors will serve me for at least a good couple of years more.
At first I was worried that it may not be a worthy upgrade due to all the hate online for AMD's FX chips, however I have been blown away by the difference, especially in video encoding, where as with my old Phenom it would take me around 1x play speed of a blu-ray film to mp4 encode, the fx6300 literally halves the time!! and amazingly I am still able to work online and perform all daily tasks while this is happening without incurring any performance hit!! Hmm I can see why you would hate a £69 processor that has all that power........? a second hand beet up old i5 costs twice what this does new Plus the best upgrade is the running temp, where as the good old Phenom 955 at 3.2Ghz stock would hit over 50c while encoding full mp4's this FX 6300 at it's 3.5Ghz with 4.1Ghz turbo barley exceeds 35c!! on the exact same 6yr old air cooler...why do the haters say that it runs hot? I suppose if they overclock it within an inch of it's life for an extra 2fps haha.
So in short if you need a dependable workhorse pc, but don't have too much cash to spare, this even in 2017 is a solid choice, ok if you want 240fps in gta 5 and haven't desovered ps4/xbox one then it's probably not for you :) just remeber to sell your car to buy that nice new i7.
Anyway this CPU is great for the price, upgraded from a fx 4100 and I can see the difference already, everything is smoother, programs start up faster, open world games are better and even rendering videos are better! It is not the best CPU on the market, but for the price and what you get is very good as the amd 8350 is not that much better than this one! Overall happy with the buy and definitley recommend if you are going to build your own rig. Make sure you get a better heat sink than stock if you plan to overclock!
Although I have since built other computers, I can still to this day boot up the computer that this is installed on and enjoy a good gaming session on even modern games. It isn't always churning out 60fps on high settings, and sometimes I've had to battle with config files to get it to do so, but that's not something I'm going to complain about. I've already had more than my moneys worth of use from this product and it remains functional and capable even now.
This processor is becoming outdated, as they all are, and so at this point in it's life cycle I can't 100% recommend this now. I don't think it will hold up well with the latest releases another 3 years from now. However, my experience with it has definitely been five star worthy!
