I have that very processor and it runs well. But then, who really says they made a bad investment even if they did?
Now I am not going to tell I didn't seriously think about purchasing the latest Intel 3770 when I was shopping around. I almost did but I took the plunge and decided to try out the FX-8350 with the Asus M5A99X. Both the processor and the motherboard got just above average reviews and I did see several complaints on the motherboard but thought I would challenge the odds for the cost of a return and refund. Needless to say, I have had these two items running for a couple of weeks with no issues.
I also have two gigabyte 7870's crossfire. I do not have it overclocked.--
Oh, praise the one who paid my debt;
And raised this life up from the dead.
