Performance TOTALLY! Outperformed my Intel Core i7-4960X Extreme Edition in my living room!That i found hard to believe but I'm getting 40 more FPS on my GTX 560.So yep!This will work great for me.I haven't used the built in APU graphics but i will someday.
had a problem with the motherboard FM2 due to so many of them being outdated.But there was a patch to fix it.The motherboard heated up saying the chip was running at 120c but that was impossible.It was cool in the system.I found no heat.It was obviously a bug.So remember to update your board.It gave me HUGE performance with no heat.Temps at 24c to 38c cap!
Update your motherboard or get a Revision 2.0 or Revision 4.0 FM2 Motherboard.This was worth the money!
I just built my first computer, its a HTPC. Most of the parts came from this store. It is hard to beat their prices, especially on combo deals. Highly recommend this store to the novice like myself... (more)
