Pros: 8 cores for the future

Cons: Intel fanboys

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. Mine OC great runs well with a h212 OC n the winter with push n pull but really loves to be on water when room temp is hot. At 4ghz my h212 had no problems even when my room had no AC n the summer last year very hot summer. If you go by benchmarks you will never get any where the ppl with the money intel/nvidia pay most of them to be in there favor and not in amd favor. example I had a catzilla score over 15000 with my 7970 not that long later a new catzilla came out and i...

Fast- Runs Hot!

Posted

Pros: Fast! Great for gaming, can keep up with Intel!

Cons: Hot, needs water to push it far

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!~ Heat is the only negative thing about this cpu it runs Hot as hell~ So if your planning on buying this thing make sure you have a nice motherboard to put it in so you can utlize its full potential! Also as far as cooling goes iam getting a custom loop for mine but with a regular air cooler I dont see this thing standing the test of time it just runs way to hot compared...

Speed and Price Optimized

Posted

Pros: Technically 8-core, 4.0Ghz base clock, lots of cache, AM3+ socket

Cons: overclocking is heat limited very quickly

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. Because gaming is so heavily GPU reliant you will see no real difference in gaming performance unless your last processor was limiting your GPU bus performance. Overall, this processor is more than worth the money and garners...

A pretty good processor. (good bang for buck)

Posted

Pros: Quite cheap, unlocked

Cons: Not as powerful as you might think, and it gets HOT also the modular architecture suffers in many situations due to lack of support.

So, the AMD vs Intel war continues, the AMD FX 8350 is a octa core 4.0 to 4.2 GHz processor from the bulldozer series. First, lets take a look at the specs: And compare it to the i5 3570k, the nearest intel competitor AMD FX-8350 i5 3570k Chip: AM3+ Chip FCLGA1155 Clock frequency: 4000MHz (4200 at turbo) VS Clock frequency: 3400MHz (3800 at turbo) Power consumption:125 watts Power consumption:77 watts Max memory bandwidth:21 GB/s ...

The next best thing to a 9370/9590 or an Intel Counter part.

Posted

Pros: Runs 8 Cores, lots of Cache, Runs all games Maxed, Great Price

Cons: HOT, Need WC for Pushing OC's, IPC ain't ground breaking, did I say HOT?

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. When it comes to OC, you only need 4.6Ghz to 5Ghz for her to really pull away from the others, that being said, you need WC to do it. This thing runs a little hot on higher OC, but with a H100i, you can't go wrong. BF4: 55-85FPS Ultra BF3: 65-90FPS Ultra Crysis 3: 70-110FPS Ultra I look forward to the Newer games coming out, this thing will push them just fine. If you looking for a good Gamer CPU, get this. If you want to beat and tie with World...

Great CPU

Posted

Pros: 8 cores, 4ghz stock clock, not Intel.

Cons: cost?

Went from a 955BE@3.8 to a 1090T@4ghz to this 8350@stock in pretty quick order as things happened to work out. The 955 I ran for several years. They were all fine CPU's for light gaming and any other use heavy or light. The 1090T was a fair upgrade over the 955 gaining two cores and cooler operation. The cores only help in software smart enough to use it, and having them there to assign to virtual machines that I use a lot. The leap to the 8350 was less dramatic, but still worth it considering I sold the 1090T, quickly I might add, for half of what I paid for the 8350. At $100 the 8350 was a steal, at $200 I would have been OK with it but a bit less of a deal. I'm sure prices will...

Great processor for those looking for something cheaper than intel

Posted

Pros: 4.0Ghz clock, very fast, easy installation

Cons: Stock heatsink is junk, runs hot

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. At the overclock I'm running stably now I have an H100I by Corsair, and with it my max temps under load are 48*C. Also keep in mind when overclocking this CPU the max rated temps for sustainable use is 63*C on the cores and 70*C on the socket. Overall...

Perfect

Pros: Very fast. It's the cat's meow until the steamroller comes out. Easy to heavy overclock if you have a good cooling solution.

Cons: Not a one yet.

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.

Great CPU

Posted

Pros: Price, Performance

Cons: Overclockability, doesn't make me toast

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.

AMDs return to competitiveness

Posted

Pros: Multi-tasking for gods , media creation is as good if not better than the i7 3770k, which costs a chunk of change more. Newer games run great!

Cons: Older games and most Emulators don't utilize the full power of this processor, although single core performance beats out Nehalem. Power usage.

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. the 8350 is a very capable processor, it is excellent at multi-tasking for the user who just can't have enough programs open at once, and still want to play all the newest games at maximum settings with great results. When Quad-core CPUs were just coming out, I remember Nay-Sayers speaking of the dual-core as the ultimate gaming platform. And just like back then, they will eventually be proven wrong. When a program utilizes all 8 cores, and 4 modules of this chip, it...
