AMD FX-8300 FD8300WMW8KHK CPU Processor 3.3GHz (Max 4.2GHz) 8-core Soket AM3+ 938-pin

FX-8300 95W OEM CPU is a BIG WINNER!!!

Agent Smith1984

Pros: Great price if on sale, excellent multithreaded performance, overclocks like a dream and does so on lower voltage than traditional FX-8 series chips

Cons: Single thread performance is lack luster, needs better than average cooling, uses lots of power when overclocked.

The FX series CPU's from AMD have been around for some time now, but with the CPU industry moving at a much slower pace than say, 10 years ago, that's not necessarily a problem right now. This is especially if you consider how excellent these chips overclock, how well they perform when overclocked, and what kind of deal you can score one for when they go on sale. Something I will say that I do...

“Enough of the jokes. I take Tom's "Best CPU" monthly articles literally...for gaming (of which I not much of a), "if you're not going to OC, you probably don't need more than a 4440.) And when I was looking of an i5 for this new build I'm now working on, I saw an offer of this i5-4440 for only $168 at NCIX, it seemed that it would do. Review is predicated on a damned good price basically....” --dennphill

“I had one of these 1155 Pentium CPUs for a year, give or take a few days. With 8 GB RAM and a Gigabyte GT 730 GPU added onto an ASRock H61M-VS4 Motherboard, the G2030 was quite capable of doing small 3D renderings in TurboCAD, and it can handle older games like Xcom and the UT series, though not on hi-res. There was also no problem with movie watching, (as long as all necessary codecs are...” --Kosenator

“I recently built this into a budget gaming/work PC. I was stuck between a cheap i3, and a much more expensive i5, and this seemed to be a nice compromise. 4 cores is nice, but this will handily out run and quad core, as long as no more than 2 cores are used. At 3.8 GHz Stock, this has more than enough speed, and I have been able to push this cpu to extreme performance. It is matched with a...” --Macgyverman1123

“Gotta love ppl not real 8 cores when in fact it is it's a 4 modules cpu with 2 cores in each modules that share resources get over it it's a 8 core and AMD came out with it first now Intel will come out with one. Mine OC great runs well with a h212 OC n the winter with push n pull but really loves to be on water when room temp is hot. At 4ghz my h212 had no problems even when my room had no AC...” --STRATUSRT02

“I bought this for my third build this year after having an 1100t 6-core, and an FX-8120 previously. The 1100t was sweet but the fx was a dud, to say the least. This processor outperforms them both in every test and application that I have thrown at it! I cool it with the stock cooler that came with the FX (it's beefier than the one that came with this one) and I'm running 4.2 gig without...” --oldcompgeek

“I've always wanted a phenom. Been into AMD since my first Athlon 64x2 3800+ machine in 2005. And my dad owned an AMD k6 machine in 1999 with 64mb of RAM. I've been using intel machines ever since that athlon died and i needed something to remind myself why i liked AMD. Got this with my friend's rig and I have to say... it hasn't failed to impress. I'm amazed at how well it gobbles most new...” --TheMrnerdgeek
