Pros: Lightning fast and Super to OC. Easy to obtain 5.2ghZ, The ultimate bang for buck.
Cons: This CPU must be liquid cooled. Draws 220TDP and not all AMD MotherBoards will support this beast!
Well I spent a little time tuning to obtain a stable overclock and found it fun and quite easy to obtain a moderate 5.2 GHZ Overclock.
For benching all cores are un-parked and to my surprise ambient temps are around 20-25c at idle and peak around 60-65c running the most stressful of all the tests and Ive run quite a few.
I would thoroughly recommend this CPU to any one who wants to max out their settings for Flight Sims, High End Graphics and Gaming, that are CPU intensive.
I'm not a Fan Boy off AMD nor do I work for AMD and have no partiallity toward Intel nor AMD, They both manufacture good product!!!
