Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great CPU For the money but can get cheaper on other sites. The CPU is Great. Its fast, Overclockable and does everything i demand it to do with ease and that gaming, 1080p HD video rendering. HD video playback. I run a successful youtube channel and it all because of this. Differently recommend if you want a really decent CPU that sits in the middle of the intel i3 and i5 in performance! Its a great upgrade for people coming from lower end CPU's like me running a AMD SEMPRON 145 before upgrading to this 6 core beast! Yes INTEL are better if your doing major stuff like everyday GRAPHIC DESIGNING, WEB DESIGNING, HD RENDERING but this packs alot of power for the price and does these tasks pretty well for what your paying for. You wont be upset with this products its superb and really worth getting if your just getting into PC gaming your upgrading from a low end CPU.

I have a AMD E1 CPU and would like to upgrade to a AMD FX 6300. Do I need to change the motherboard, fan etc. in conjunction with this change. Thanks

Asked by: Syd F
This would be entirely dependent on the socket of your motherboard. Whether the old CPU has the same socket type as the AMD FX 6300 which is an AMD AM3+ socket.
