Summary: I would have paid the extra money just for a decent CPU fan to be included in the package, really. Now I need to find an alternative. I just want this project to be done.
Pros: The CPU is great. No issues to speak of on this front whatsoever.
Cons: The CPU fan that was included in the package was fine for about a week. I built the computer for my parents at my house, and when I moved it to their office and set everything up, the CPU fan suddenly decides that it wants to run at a constant 6000 RPM and is now about 20x louder than it was when...
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.
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.
