AmazingJust upgraded from a PhenomII quad core 980 BE and the performance difference is huge. I am now watercooling this piledriver CPU using a high performance xspc 360 kit and have mananged a 5.2ghz overclock which is stable on all games so far :D, when overclocked this high it outperforms an i5, i am not biased as i have two rigs on the go, one is intel i5 based and the other is AMD, they are both great cpu's but from a non biased opinion the amd cpu offers value for money and rivalled /better performance over some intel chips23/12/2012

SO QUICKDidn't expect too much from this processor, but WOW!
AMD have really pulled their thumbs out their arse for this one!
8.6 on Windows 8 WEI, Overclocked to 4.5Ghz no problem with my motherboard's BIOS (Asus Sabertooth 990FX).
Didn't even need to flash the BIOS!
If you're looking for an upgrade from a Bulldozer, GET THIS.
I am very impressed.
Also OcUK's delivery was quick (2 DAYS TO JERSEY WOW) Thanks again OcUK!

    Great performanceFor the price especially with the OC sale on bringing it to 149.99 it is just simply amazing.

    Yes it's not the BEST like i7 but considering how much more an i7 is, it is not value for money as the different between this and the i7 is not BIG, whereas the price between this and the i7 IS BIG.

    Definitely a good value for money CPU nothing will slow this beast down and the OC potential is BIG.235 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    im fx'd upmoving on from a 1100t and this is just as exciting
    at stock speed i can drop the voltage to 1.22 and be fully stable
    i find these to be the best stability testing tools for amd systems
    grid, dirt 2, c.o.d. black 1 & 2
    if there are any weaknesses these three will show u
    why run a benchmark when you can test and enjoy yourself at the same time
    back to the cpu..
    mine overclocks to 4.6 on stock volts so i stopped there and am loving it226 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Very GoodJust upgraded from my old 8150. Running it at 4.6ghz @ 4.00v (H80 water cooled) to get it stable in prime95. I wasn't sure if it was worth the upgrade, but it was definitely worth it. I think overclocked it's approx 15% faster222 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    4.9 GhzWell. I have it at 4.9 ghz at 1.56 volts (i thought that was crazy high volts but its stable). On h20, ran prime 95 for 2 hours. Just wont hit 5Ghz stable. Motherboard asrock extreme 970. I was amazed to find that it almost doubles my fps in bf3 (amd 7950). I guess my old phenom 965@3.8 was bottlenecking! I would drop to 40fps sometimes, now its never below 75 fps @ 1080. Very impressed!218 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    quicker than I thoughtNot owned a amd cpu since opteron 930 and I came from Q9550 which has been a real work horse but this is twice as fast as that and runs so quiet and cool. Have overclocked up to 4.6Ghz with one bump of vcore and it eats through anything I put its way.214 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Consider ThisVery happy for 149 pounds this is a fantastic processor. I had a phenomx2 955 quad at 3.2 ghz. Games ran fine with all the graphics on full on my 1080p telly sometimes lagged a bit. But as soon as i turned phsics on in bourdlands two or batman etc it was rubbish. This processor allows me to have the phsics on full. The games are so smooth. MSI 6970 lightning gpu and a MSI 990 FX chipset mb. This chip runs ram faster than the 1033 max old chips you get the most out of your ram. Reviews say i5 gets a few more frames in games. Real world never actually notice the diffrence. Phisics in games make the most of all cores in a processor. So games without physics or with built in gpu cuda might get a few more fps on a I5. But soon as you use heavy phsics this procossor eats the i5 which everyone seems to totally miss. All the test i found are testing on gpu with cuda. More games are using physics so this is a perfect processor if you dont have it built in to your gpu.212 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    Best purchase in a long time!I heard lots of horror stories about this process and a lot of bottlenecking. I have also been an AMD fan and figure it deserved a try. Am glad I did. Running this on a Asrock 970 Extreme with a MSi 6870 and 8GB ram It handles everything I can throw at it.209 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes

    4.9 GhzThis is a very nice cpu, i had amd 4100 before this one and it was bottlenecking me hard in guildwars 2 and battlfield 3, i basically played on high settings but now i can enjoy on ultra settings with 40-70 fps with gtx 570.
    overall very happy and strongly saugest if you planing to upgrade in socket am3+ motherboards.206 User found this Review usefullHelpful Review? Yes
