    FX-6300

      AMD FX-6300 CPU » HARDCORE GAMES™

       

      Prices are lower now so I was considering retiring the old Phenom II X4 965 as the FX-6300 does leverage the RAM I own a tad better

       

      I have seen lots of threads on the CPU which suggests that some additional work on my review is needed

       

      Besides the CPU cooler being below par, MX-4 does fix that problem

          the fx 6300 in not worth it it bottlenecks my r9 380 alot  the fps is all over the place once is smooth 60 fps then all of a sudden drops down to 30 -40 then goes back up thing like that u would rather go for an i3 6100 its mutch more stable in the avarage-max fps area

            oh im sorry then im my country the i3 6100 is just 10 dollars more expensive than the 6300 but after looked a bit at ur processor and i dont think its mutch of an upgrade, i think if u overclock it to  4-4,1 ghz it will be as good as  the fx

                Getting hard to find the lower priced AMD processors, expectations for Zen must be closer at hand

                My MSI 970A-G43 is socket AM3+ so I was looking at a potential CPU improvement

                maybe if u buy a second hand 6300 at half the price but with that motherboard im telling u its better of overclocking the phenom and save ur money for the zen cpus
