A great cpu with no problems installing. A good alternative to an intel i5 7600k

Great chip
Got this to replace an fx-8320. Paired with 16gb of flarex 3200 ddr4, and msi b350 gaming pro carbon, this thing screams. Using a noctua nh-u12s se am4 air cooler, it stays below 63 c when overclocked to 4.1ghz on all cores (at 1.38v). My basement is a steady 60 f though, which helps. I have it running at 4.05ghz for everyday use. I knew it had no fan included, so no big deal.

Only supports up to 2666mhz on ram
But performs solid as hell. Upgraded from an fx-8370 and on cpu bound games, i'm getting nearly double the frames. Running a gtx 980 sc with it.

I bought mine roughly 5 months ago and i love it! I've run into absolutely no problems with it, and even after the spectre patch it runs like a dream. I use mine for gaming, video encoding, 3d modeling/rendering, and more, and it's never failed to impress me for. A heckin' good processor for a heckin' good price.
Nice and powerful
New cpu for a new gaming rig. Nice and powerful, and runs very cool.
