Great CPU

Received my FX-8120 today. Excellent next day service.
I bought it to replace my Athlon II 640, while not being sure if it would actually work on my motherboard, as only up to the FX-8100 is on the compatibility list, my board is a Gigabyte GA-870A-USB3L.
Well it works just fine, the only thing is the board thinks its the 8100 and it sets it to run at 2.80, but its not really a problem as you only have to change the multiplier to get it to run at 3.10
I now have it running at 3.80 just by using the multiplier, the temps are 22c idle and 52c full load on my old Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro.
It has run faultlessly through prime 95 and 3D Mark Vantage and leaves my old 640 for dead.
All that's left to say is... Great cpu and I thoroughly recommend it.

Simply fantastic!

This is a great CPU does everything i tell it too, i overclocked it to 4.2 without any hassle using the noctua NH-D14 cooler, my system is future proof!

Superb CPU

Like many others I have found this CPU " Absolutely Fabulous " Period....!!!

The so called benchmarking crap thats been going around is just for the sheep, Those who can't decide without being told what to do, Trouble is most wind up believing the misleading/misguided rubbish, That in the real world means naf all....:D

If you are looking for a performance steal in real terms, Upgrading a current AMD board has never been so cost/performance excellent.

If you have no idea what your doing, Go buy an Intel i5 daisy bridge ( Whatever ) like the rest of the herd.

Bottom line, This is a very decent chip, Add it to a decent board ( Asus M5A99X EVO ) Some decent Ram, Maybe an Arctic A30 cooler and the job is a good un.......!!!!!!

Replaced my AMD Phenom quad core with this and the difference is outstanding. However my free copy of dirt showdown turned out to be dirt 3, but i am much more interested with the processor. Great service from overclockers once again !!!

A Great Buy

I Brought this back in January to replace my old Q6600, so far i can't complain this thing doesn't break a sweat over anything and there is no noticeable lag when the CPU changes frequency (both lowering and turbo kicking in) so i've left the power saving feature enabled (something i could not do with Intel speedstep on the q6600).

For a 8 core it's surprisingly cool too, it doesn't exceed 42c unless it's undergoing stress testing, i'm a big gamer too so with a result like that for my average use it's very impressive.

I'd recommend this too anyone who isn't obsessed with benchmark results and can understand that in the real world benchmarks mean nothing.

Can't complain cheap, fairy cool, and doesn't break a sweat over anything i chuck at it (gaming, compiling code, forensic analysis, anything).

lovely stuff

bought this along with a asus M5a78l-musb3 mobo.

o/c to 3.6ghz idle temp is 19c, it goes up to 46c when im gaming this is using the stock heatsink and fan.
4ghz is no problem for this chip!!!

bill 2012-06-30

Darryl Atkins 2012-06-23

Free, Fast, Awsome

A great all round CPU, for my first computer build.

Saved myself some money to buying 890fx mobo, and just updating the bios.

Plus Free Deus Ex, couldn't go wrong

John 2012-04-20

WOW !!!!!

OMG how sick is this CPU it has completely blown my mind how Quick and stable this AMD FX8 CORE is couldn't ask for anything better for the price........

scott speedy leeds 2012-03-23


Got this as an upgrade to my trusty old q6600.The difference is night and day i have it running @4ghz just by changing the multiplier nothing else stable as hell on prime 95 for 24 hours awsome cpu.

Scott Ryder 2012-03-11
