AMD would be better off focussing their efforts on their new Zen microarchitecture with DDR4 support and AM4 socket design rather than throwing another AM3+ CPU on to the market like it would make a huge amount of difference. AMD really need that one to be a hit to regain customer confidence.

Jim Keller seems to have left though so how that will impact them who knows. This won't tempt me all that much to upgrade from my x4 965. I'm still likely to switch to Intel's Skylake when I can budget for upgrades, probably coupled with a 980 ti.

When you say you couldn't overclock I assume you were using the paltry stock cooler. This chip will overclock to 4.5 GHz without issue with a good cooler and go higher with a good motherboard, good PSU, and good cooling. Use the fan on the stock cooler to cool the motherboard VRMs.

Pair this with a Gigabyte UD3P motherboard and you can have a good budget system for tasks that will use all the cores (like H.265, Blender, etc.). Avoid overclocking on 4 phase boards and the AsRock 970 board which recently came out. This chip can also do gaming pretty well, even at 4K, if clocked high enough and paired with strong GPUs. The weakest link for overclocking on the Gigabyte board is the VRM cooling but the board is only $50 at Microcenter with the bundle.
