I am still in the process of going through all my applications (4 partitions worth) to see what runs and what doesn't (damned registry).

If I get an inkling, I'll load Prime95 and see what the temps get up to under stock with the H20 620 on it.

So being on a tight budget I was looking at the amd fx-4100 series for current setup. I am curious how most are working for day to day use of gaming among other things if it is a good processor or not. I have always had AMD and have loved them since owning my first one.

The FX-4100 was great. Its cheap, worked great for the games I played, and ran cool. I bought into the benchmarks at one point and used an i3 for a budget gaming rig because it always showed it pulling higher frame rates. But the fx-4100 felt smoother for some reason in games, even though they both were pulling the 60fps I need. I think it was because with other programs running in the background, one of the cores on the i3 would sometimes max, causing a stutter. It wasnt bad, but it was noticable, whereas the fx-4100 was smooth. Just my experience thumb.gif

EDIT: It also overclocked very well for me, but that will depend on the motherboard!

Great thanks for the input. Being as I wanted the FX-8150 but out of reach right now I do not mind settling for the FX-4100. Always can upgrade at a later time. I have a BioStar 990FX mobo, 8 Gb Corsair PC1600 Mhz Ram, CM Haf922 case. Seagate 1 Tb hard drive, Radeon Hd 7770 video card ( came from a friend, upgrade later), Corsair 850 W ps, cm hyper 212 cooler. Looking into SSD for games and os system. So as far as the FX-4100 what is a stable clock for it ?

U can easily run it with your cooler on 4.6+ Ghz 24/7.

I only ran it at 4.2ghz for the heck of it, without a voltage increase... But like the poster above said, 4.6ghz is very much achievable with the right cooling biggrin.gif

Great to hear. Look forward to this processor. I shall order it tomorrow then. Have to learn more about over clocking.

Is this really safe OC in the ASUS M588-M(CHEAP!) motherboard?? or it will explode after a month of overclocking
