    Probably going to try each cooling setup to see were it maxes out at. The box is the same for all WOF CPU's AMD sells. It has no cooler so thats likely why its not in a tin.

    What is the normal stepping for FX chips everyone has? The one on mine is FA 1317PGS which puts this as a very recent chip diffused in April of this year. I have never gotten a chip that close to purchase. There must have been some updates with processes, I was expecting a late 2012 chip.

    It will be printed on the top of your CPU have to pull the HSF to get it.

    Oh, too much work :laugh:
    I posted my stepping number somewhere on the forum, just don't remember. I do have to admit, what ever stepping I have must be a great one, because it OC's quite nice with super high bus speed with low voltage requirement.

    Honest opinions needed people. I'm looking to get a new rig together in the next couple of months. It's sole purpose is for gaming @1080p (all types of games) and I'm trying to decide on which platform I should build it. To all you highly clocked FX 83** users, if you had the budget or choice again, would you go intel (ie haswell) or has the FX performed adequately in everything you have thrown at it?

    Are there any particular games you have found it lacking in? or any regrets? What have been the positives?

    Remember, just good honest thoughts on the matter please, I'm open to either AMD or Intel and I just prefer to go by what people have experienced with everyday usage rather than numbers in a benchmark. Thanks and :toast:

    What games are you planning on playing. For the most part a well clocked FX chip wont have a single issue playing games at 1080P.

    I play literally everything from flight sims to Minecraft, rpgs, shooters, sports, mmos etc. I want consistency throughout and I'd be looking to go high end with the chosen parts on either platform but obviously a saved buck or two would be ideal rather than just splurging the cash on excessive or overkill components.

    The only games with major issues are games like skyrim. Which is horribly coded.

    How so? Purely reduced fps or other anomalies?

    It doesn't perform as well as the similarily priced Intel chip. Not saying the game is not playable, but if you think you need 1000FPS in every game an FX probably isn't for you.
    ...PACMAN... says thanks.
