Great choice at a great price!

This processor is a great choice of you want something very fast, versatile, and a lot of bang for the buck. I moved up from a Phenom II 1090T to this and definitely noticed a speed increase. Load and boot times are next to non existance. I'm temporarily using the stock cooler, which is actually decent, and my temps never get above in the 50's celcius. mine is over clocked to 4.5ghz. I'm sure a top of the line Intel would beat it, but the cost would be a lot more and I don't think it's worth it. If you need a good socket AM3+ CPU, go with this, you won't be sorry!

Don't listen to the negativity.

Ok so you could do better with an i7 but this processor will compete with high end i5s and it's way cheaper. Trust me, there are a lot of people with the top end of graphics and computing power that use this.

Best upgrade ever

Upgraded from phenom II X4 to this. Was going to reused old motherboard but the mother was too old. After getting the right motherboard and with a ssd the computer boots super fast.

Great for gaming

Just had this installed in my comp - had a couple problems with the installation in my Asus M5A97 EVO MB because I didn't have the BIOS updated (so do that first if you have an older MB).
Once installed I couldn't be happier. I have an aftermarket cooler on it so it stays within temp range. Runs all my programs and games faster.
Had it price matched so got it a little cheaper than the advertised price.
Overall I really like this CPU.

This cpu is better than an i5 from intel but a little less than an i7.
