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.Read more ›
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
1) Make sure you have a mother board that supports fx processors, usually it'll be "AM3+ mother board"
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.Read more ›
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.
Admittedly, the GPU I picked up is overkill for this CPU, but it hasn't really got in the way. I'm eventually going to get one of AMD's Zen CPUs and some DDR4 to replace it, but for right now I feel no pressure to make any moves. I took this 6300 to 4.2GHz, the limit for this motherboard as it's a 4+1 power phase piece of junk that I bought before I knew any better, but I'm pretty happy with it there. I don't feel like I really need any more than this for right now. For $100, the 6300 is an amazing value.
