Last year I was having audio problems and I thought that it was the motherboard. So, then i purchased my current mobo. Eventually I figured out the problem was not motherboard related. Then this year, I saw FX chips dropping into $100 territory so I went ahead and upgraded from an Athlon X2 455. I'm ambivalent about being stuck on old architecture. Those skylake I5's going for $220 on Newegg are sexy. My FX is not super fast, it runs really hot, it's burns way too much energy, I had to get a higher powered PSU, but on the other hand, I got a processor for cheap, 8 cores, fun to OC and cool, and I didn't have to upgrade my ram. Best of all, the community here and elsewhere of FX lovers is outstanding and probably hard to match with any other CPU platform.

I know people here have scoffed at the idea of deactivating cores and pushing for a higher clock, but I think I'll try it out this fall when I graduate school. I doubt I'd use such settings daily, but It may improve performance in specific situations and I'm curious if I can squeeze out another couple hundred Mhz, see what the temps look like, etc.

I am taking Doom as a sign of things to come. Heavy vram usage Heavy system ram usage and decent multi threaded capabilities.

I've been watching Witcher3 B&w Streams and its gottem me interested, might pick up the GoTY version in a few months time, but i kinda still need to play the witcher 2, and prolly should replay 1 cus i can't remember anything

Read the lore on Wikipedia and play the best game in the series biggrin.gif That's what I usually do. I bet you'd consider this serious heresy Flail... I confess I skipped Darksiders I and only played Darksiders II. Everything I read said DSII > DSI. Too bad THQ closed up shop and DSIII is in limbo /:

At stock clocks??

They run cooler than enthusiast level Intel chips and only draw 125W. True, performance per watt isn't what the competition has. But getting flustered over what is realistically ~30W in everyday computing is silly. That equates to less than $1 over the course of 5 years.

I'm baffled at the thought of people spending more than the price difference in electricity for 100 years of continuous usage on Intel chips, rather than just going with the AMD solution, when the AMD solution fits their purpose.

I love how people complain about the supposed power usage of FX cpu's but leave lights on they don't need, have tv's going they aren't watching etc....

About 30 minutes into a Prime95 test, I started smelling burning plastic. Felt the power cable and it was hot and started to melt through the insulation... rolleyes.gif

power usage shouldnt be a concern. intel 6 and 8 core cpus pull some serious power too when overclocked. Dont even get me started on the people still running x58 setups...

The same cannot be said with GPUs though.

rx480 is gonna change all that though. The people complaining about power usage are quadcore i7 users. Of course a quad is gonna pull less power than a 8 core even if the 8 core is running stock. I mean hell if i undervolt the fx8350 to like 1.15vcore it will pull as much power as a quad i7 but hey i dont care. Overclock and get more performance. I got a 8 core for a reason. http://www.guru3d.com/articles-pages/core-i7-5960x-5930k-and-5820k-processor-review,8.html 5960x pulls 180 watts full load at stock. Thats around what a 8350 does. overclocked should be about the same too. load overclocked the 5960x pulls 380 watts at 4.4 ghz. 1.35 vcore

Idiots will argue as idiots do. Just ignore the intel placebo nerds and enjoy what you have to it's potential. Everytime I get in a dust up with an intel nerd they have spent loads of money on a rig with unlocked chip and high end gpu and they're more often than not stock clocked.
