Competitiveness


It's still relevant in the gaming community despite being several gens old now, it's just a beasty processor and has never had trouble.

    Now, i would not recommend using the heat sink that is supplied with the cpu.

    Cpu hasn't gone above 89 degrees.

    I was satisfied with my purchase, it came in through the mail a week early.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Very prompt delivery & was exactly as the seller said, not like the other one i had to return.
