this was the best CPU supported by the motherboard, 22 Jan. 2017
In order to resurrect a 5 year old system, this was the best CPU supported by the motherboard. Compared to the FX 6100 it replaced, it was a big improvement. I set all cores to turbo speed (4.3ghz) and it handles everything I use it for without issues.
It will become dated (if not already) with new upcoming AMD cpu releases in March, however it is the best available AM3+ socket chip and was the cheaper option to keep it going for another year without replacing the motherboard.
