I have one for about 7 months now, runs smoothly, never had any problems. Very good CPU.


Good

4 days ago.

good for gaming without clocking pair with better gpu such as gtx1070


Poor

2 months ago.

The best CPU you can get for a killer gaming computer, it does it all. True, you cant overclock it, but the power it already has will give anyone 70 fps+ at any game with a capable GPU.
