    Best price to performance CPU on the market. I didn't win the silicone lottery which is a bit disappointing, but I was able to get it up to 4.4 on high voltage (1.5). These chips can take 1.55v, but it is not recommended for everyday use. I settled on 4.2 at 1.45v. No L3 cache is a bummer as well, but for the money I am beyond happy, although I have to leave a star off due to my bad luck with the silicone.

    Good Bang for the buck. Got mine OC'd to 4.3Ghz on 1.4 volts with a Cryorig H7.

    Cheap quad core processor for the latest FM2 chipset. A good buy right now and leaves the possibility of replacing it in the future with a better FM2 processor when AMD releases one.

    OMG this thing is great! Easy to overclock and just feels so smooth. I cant say enough about it. Want to build another system with it and really see what I can get it up too.

    I should be able to give this CPU 10 stars. It is the best budget CPU that AMD has to offer right now, and it flat out performs. For a little background, this chip is the A-10 7870k without the integrated graphics in it. This little guy, combined with my GTX 750 ti (both at stock clock speeds) handles Xbox One/PS4 games at 1080p and on high/ultra settings with ease (including Fallout 4, GTAV, Shadow of Mordor, and Wolfenstein: The New Order, more on the way as I become rich :) ). Buy this processor and you will not be disappointed, it is a true budget gaming unit!

    If all you had was £55 for a processor then this is about as good as you can get, not a true Quad Core but 4 Threads all the same. Overclocks really well, but all chips are different. No Level 3 Cache but still it can hold its own. Obviously Clock for Clock Intel will win but Intel do not sell an unlocked Processor in this price range and the one they do is only Dual Core and is known to become swamped with later games requiring more than 2 Cores. Once overclocked they do start to pull away and can cope with some demand. Paired with a feature rich FM2+ board for £45 and you have decent combo for £100

    Solid CPU for gaming on a budget. Have yet to overclock but plan to soon.

    Perfect budget CPU. Does everything I want it to, and I have no complaints.
