FM2 is, however, far more appealing, particularly for budget builds and we've done a great deal of testing on a (built and ready to go, and also in a Carbide 500R) overclocked FM2 rig based on a 5800K. Sadly though, it appears that FM2 is rather thermally irregular and likes to downclock/downvolt chips even when they're below the TjMax. We'll do some more research on this and liaise with AMD and hopefully be able to add FM2 into our cooler reviewers soon.
