Reasons why I bought it: This is the latest version of processor from AMD codenamed Vishera. It has new microarchitecture, which basically uses 32nm meaning it consumes less power than previous generation, and this is the best-bang-for-your-buck product compared to intel's processors. Also, it just works and paired with AMD's improvements (just read the product detail if you want to know more) made it quite tempting to buy on sale. In addition, I found no need to use an aftermarket cooler or a liquid cooler SO FAR lol, cooler provided by amd has no problems with overheating even on games maxed like gw2, sc2, sleeping dogs. I believe the max temperature for AMD FX series is about 60-65 degrees C, and mine is maxing at 35C. So, I think I'm good. Also, I want to point out that all Visheras are unlocked, which I believe means you can overclock it as high as you want if there's no heating problems.

Package contains:
1) 1 processor (obviously)
2) 1 cpu fan (silent, blows air downward with gaps/fins in all 4 directions for heat to leave in all sides) with thermal paste already on it
3) 1 sticker
4) 1 small guide/information packet

Requirements:
1) Make sure you have a mother board that supports fx processors, usually it'll be "AM3+ mother board"

Comparisons:
1) Even though AMD's line of processors can't beat intel's higher end i7, I think the price for Visheras really makes it quite worth the money, but this can compete with intel's i5.

2)Comparing FX-6200 vs FX-6300: Both are 6-core processors but the fx-6300 is newest model with 10-15% increase in performance.

Haven't seen my son leave his room once he put it in his gaming machine, though. Starting to wonder what my son looks like. Wish I could give one to my boss at work and get the same effect.

My experience with this CPU has been a noticeable speed boost from my X4 975, and gives superior performance than my Intel i7-960, at *stock* speeds. I haven't OC'ed it except to see whether it was made with OCing in mind. At 4.1 GHz this chip stays cool enough you can get by without having to buy anything gigantic or expensive. Watching a full HD movie on VLC with 10+ tabs open in firefox, chatting on skype+IRC *and* a temp monitor running... this thing hasn't gone above 56% with most cores underclocked via the auto-power-saving features.

The important info follows: *it assumes the buyer is basing their choice on what has the muscle to run their taxing apps, and that the other options being considered are other choices in the same line (though most of this applies when deciding between an i5 and this cpu)*

1. Good single core performance. Articles bothering to measure this are rare, but the FX-6300 actually *outperforms* the more expensive 8-core models in running tasks dependent on individual core performance rather than the number of cores.

I'll cut to the practical info to take from that: multimedia-oriented programs will benefit from more cores (so graphic artists would want more cores) and to a lesser extent, gaming will benefit from greater single-core performance.

*Nobody* mentions this fact, and honestly I'm writing this review primarily to get that information out there, since the default logic would be that if anything the 6 core is definitely inferior to the 4 cores, or that the 8 cores would be faster in every way bar none.

Also, if you're just browsing, checking email and watching youtube and skyping etc... don't worry! 6-cores and the stock 3.

When the FX series first came out, it wasn't what AMD fans had expected. The bulldozer architecture had many shortcomings. When these first came out, I bought the FX 6100 processor. After about a week of trying to like it, I sent it back and put my Phenom II x6 1055t back in. Many people insisted that it was my motherboard and ram that were the real problem, but I upgraded both (990 board/1866Mhz ram). So when these new piledriver processors rolled out, I decided to give it another go. This FX 6300 exceeded what I expected. It handles single threaded applications much better and does everything much better. All my games had a framerate increase of 10-15fps over my old Phenom II. I am very happy with this chip and how easily it overclocks. Just get a good cooling unit before trying to overclock and you should be good.

Edit: I was never using the stock heatsink/fan with this chip, I am using the Cooler Master Hyper TX3 with arctic silver 5 thermal paste and I have never had temperatures over 40 celsius even when doing 6 core video encoding at full cpu load and overclocked to 4.4ghz.

I'm a research nut and if money is not an issue then technically Intel is more powerful, but in terms of value (price/performance) AMD FX series sky rockets out to 1st place. Just make sure you get a model with vishera technology (6300 is vishera).
