Since this processor wasn't going into my current gaming rig, it was just laying about. I couldn't let it go to waste. At stock speeds of 4.7GHz, and turbo speed of 5.0Ghz, this thing is FAST!
This processor does draw 220w, so it needs a good motherboard and good PSU.
With high power draw and fast processing comes high heat. This package with liquid cooling system comes packaged with the Cooler Master Seidon 120 AiO Liquid Cooler. This is the exact same cooler I have on my 8350. I expect this to be just as reliable to keep temperatures down.
I have the same Liquid Cooling System on my FX-8350 and it hasn’t let me down yet.
Let's see how this fares with my XFX R9 295X2
