Great processor for those looking for something cheaper than intel
7 October 2013
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. But the is a downside, this processor runs VERY HOT if you do not have an adequate cooler on it. For my opinion you need at least a cheap EVO 212 cooler for this if you want to attempt SLIGHT overclocks.
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 up to 100 fps more!
Summary: I was showing my son how to build a PC, when I opened the CPU box, I notices that several pins near the triangle marker were badly bent. It looks as if somebody returned it back to Amazon, and Amazon turned around and sold it to me. The external box was nicely sealed, but the anti-static case of the CPU was definitely looked like somebody had opened it. I am very disappointed that it ruin my PC building experience.
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.
Excerpt: With single core performance finally at an adequate level, the modular architecture AMD introduced with the shameful Bulldozer line, has begun proving itself a powerful adversary for Intel's Ivy bridge line of processors.
Excerpt: I bought this from my local microcenter to replace my unlocked x3 720 that I had for about 4 years. Noticed a jump in frame rates in games, the system overall is snappier, boinc is doing more ppd, couldn't be happier. At this price point, you can't beat the performance you get. The only thing I'm not 100% happy about is that I can't really get past 4.7Ghz stable, but that is probably because of my cooling and the luck of the draw I got with the chip.
Excerpt: The AMD FX-8350 is a very fast processor and handles my video rendering with ease, even at stock clocks. However, to really see the benefit of it you must have programs that use all eight cores (threads if you are using Windows). Adobe After Effects and Sony Vegas both love this processor's extra capabilities and utilize it to its full potential. Single core performance is still quite impressive and will be a major performance boost over any last generation CPU.
Summary: REALLY ITS A TOTAL FLOP ONCE AGAIN FROM AMD WITH FX 8350! STILL IT CANT BEAT I5 2500K PROCESSOR OF INTEL . THESE ARE NOT TRU 8 COREU CAN SEARCH IN ANY SITES LIKE. TOMSHARDWERE,ANANDTECH.GAMEDEBATE ETC, SO TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!!!! GO BUY AN INTEL PROCESSOR U WILL BE HAPPPY ALL DAY LONG!!
