1070, 1080, 1080sli, no problem. However if I were you I would wait for the AMD RX 480. They say two 480's are as strong as one 1080 but for half the price of an 1080. If thats true, much better deal (it would even be cheaper than a single 1070).

VR minimum is that CPU and zero difference, why can't this CPU be used for VR? (GPU doesn't count because I know this GPU I use is not for VR.)

The 8320E is an "low(er)" energy cpu. The cpu clock is lower and the FX 8320E shares cache per 2 cores. This means less performance and Instructions Per Core (IPC). Resulting in not strong enough for VR.


For laptops, they need an i7 quadcore (no i7-4500u, u stands for ultra low voltage) with 2,6GHz or more (my laptop with i7-4710hq is not good enough but my friends i7-4720hq is good enough,).

Since more CPU are involved in the world, most of the CPU are maybe powerful than older CPU.

This is not a K version of a cpu which means it got a locked multiplier. This cpu can be overclocked to the turbo boost speed (3.7GHz max.). However keeping a non K processor stable is much harder. Don't do this if you don't have much experience with overclocking. Even when you did overclock a K version once I wouldn't recommend it.

Stock cooler is good enough. However: the temperatures when playing cpu intensive games will get high (60-80C). At those temperatures, the cooler will make a lot of sound. Buying an aftermarket cooler will keep the temperatures lower and makes less sound :)


You can keep the stock cooler. I strongly recommend an aftermarket cooler, something like gelid snowstorm, hyper 212 evo or a hyper 103.

Great CPU. Remains cool too. I have a CM Hyper 212 EVO and the hottest core never goes above 36C under full load. I can't believe it either…

I get with the gelid snowstorm 45C at full load. Can't complain about those temperatures :) It is standing in a room where it is like 25+ C all year long.

This one! I just installed it and I am still kinda speechless. It's cool (does not exceed 52C no matter what, I swear) and unbelievably fast. I must say this is a serious CPU. Highly recommended.
