Summary: Beware packaging. The plastic case this processor comes in is garbage; had to apply quite a bit of force to open it, and when I did, processor went flying (but not the sticker - just my luck) and bent several pins.
The next best thing to a 9370/9590 or an Intel Counter part.

Excerpt: Got this CPU for my X-Mas Upgrade, and coming from a C2Q Q9550 @ 4.3Ghz, I must say WOW, On BF3, BF4 and Crysis WOW. On WoW and ETS2, kinda okay. It was worth the $190 i gave for her, and will serve me well for the Future games.
Great processor for those looking for something cheaper than intel

Excerpt: Hello, I am currently using the FX-8350 Processor from AMD Overclocked to 4.7Ghz. It is a great processor and has done its job well over the past 5 months of use. It is very easy to overclock and runs very stable under the correct voltages.
Excerpt: Another Micro Center purchase for me, I got mine with the Formula-z motherboard to replace my fx 6100/ m5a97 set/up.Compared to my bulldozer the main diffrence I have noticed with the 8350 is I get ALOT more fps with the games I play,were talking 40+ fps at most games,while certin games have jumped...
Excerpt: Gotta love ppl not real 8 cores when in fact it is it's a 4 modules cpu with 2 cores in each modules that share resources get over it it's a 8 core and AMD came out with it first now Intel will come out with one.
Excerpt: It's simple, if you are an AMD fan then buy this. $179.95 I felt like I was stealing. Thanks New Egg.Beats a 3570k at $50 more and try to find a ROG board for that 3570k with out losing and arm and a leg.
