But to be fair, if I had to choose, I'd choose neither, but pick up a FX 6300. That's a new Piledriver, and available for roughly in bteween the price of the two Bulldozer chips you mentioned (http://nl.hardware.info/productinfo/164239/amd-fx-6300 ; bij Azerty voor iets van € 128).
Piledriver, from what I've read is a very good improvement on Bulldozer, so again: if I had to choose an am3+ chip today, it'd be the 6300.
Best of luck!
(Kirchrah... daar ben ik wel een paar keer geweest wink.gif )

last questions on this:

* Is choosing for TDP of 95 Watt instead of 125 Watt better, because there's more room for overclocking because of heat?

* Is this a BE? (Because it says "boxed" on tweakers.net.)

* 1st. : as far as I know, TDP makes no difference for overclocking. It's for - again: for as far as I know - more a kind of idea of max heat out-put (on stock settings) which decides which stock cooler comes with it.

If you're going to clock the sh@t out of the chip: after-market cooler. HR-02 Macho is a relatively cheap and decent one, lot's of FX owner use the CM 212 EVO, or if you have the cash: a Noctua cooler is one of the better air-cooling brands.

Or you could go for an all-in-one closed waterloop like the Corsair H50/80/100 or an Antec H2O 620/920. But for those prices, a Noctua cooler might be just as good but slightly more quiet.

Or do like me, and build your own custom water loop. But those don't come cheap.

* Secondly, ALL current FX chips have unlocked multipliers (m.a.w.: BE) The boxed refers to the fact it comes in a box with a stock cooler. You can also see processors listed with 'tray'. I've always had boxed chips, so I'm not sure about what you get with it. I think just the chip.

Derp! You own a H50, so you'd be good for a nice speed bump wink.gif

Tray is just the sticker and chip in the little plastic thing that comes in the tin.
IMO you might as well just get the 8350. Its not that expensive and the way things are going multi-threaded it will be better for the future.

You could get a 8320 but they take more voltage and run hotter to get the same clocks for not much savings in money.

@walkin dude right now because of the black friday craze everyone and their brother is tieing up the phone lines.. you may get faster support if you can send them a email ( you then have a record) or web chat ( most sites you can save the message. ) then try in a day or so when things slow down a bit. Just an idea. I also try to call before the youngins get off school. ;>
Sunset1

P.S. sorry i havent had to call so im not sure.. If there is something we can help with please ask. Ill try to remember to check in.. more often.

@badpilot the market changes so fast what was the best chip for the price a few months ago when i researched has changed drasticly. I usually go ot a few review sites and take what they say with a grain of salt because at least in the states the sales have been crazy.

anyway here is a little reasing info ...
toms gaming chips for november..
http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/gaming-cpu-review-overclock,3106.html

as far as cooling the grass is always greener..
three camps or goups like the above poster said..
air coolers large heavy do good to great job of cooling and in my experience louc. Some are better than others. However the above poster picked a few nice ones. ( sorry i can read the above posts right now)

the clc coolers or all in one.. I can only state what i have used on my cpu. 8120 and i use the thremaltake water 2.0 extreme.. quiet and very effective. I did get mine when they first came out but on sale you might find a bargin..

Full water. I havent done this.. but i i did research it and people that do it right are happy.

a bunch of guys are also cooling their gpus ( video card ) with a cheaper clc. (the gpu mod or the red mod.

what works for us in the states because of cost differences may not be the best deal for you so i highly suggest the obove poster due to the fact that he knows your area.

Good luck.
nice board. Oh and get a nice well regulated power supply for the fx chips.. especially the 8000 series. It will save you headaches in the long run.

Edit : sorry Raephen.. ( the above poster) my ipad closes the previous posts. )

Thx guys.

Helped me a lot thumb.gif

Seeing the Toms hardware chart, I need to get up to a FX-8320, or a FX-6300, to actually beat my X4 965 BE redface.gif


EDIT:

Decided to go for a FX-6300

I think an FX-8320 or a 8350 is a bit overkill for me. blushsmiley.gif

I had it up to 4.8 stable, but I didn't want to leave the voltage above 1.4 idle. But if my temps are fine (which they are--in the high 40's under full load) is it okay to have a voltage between 1.4 and 1.45?
I want the chip to last.

I myself is not too impressed with the 8320. Normally it's about $30 less than 8350? The loss of speed between the 2 is not worth that in opinion. So if you got the money, go for the 8350 so you won't have buyer's remorse. Otherwise if you want to save money, go 6300 and you'll be happy there too.

I had considered the 8320 myself from time to time but in the end I realize that the 8350 can get better speeds at much better voltage and THAT turned me away.

I went with the 8320 originally thinking it would just be a little slower and maybe not clock quite as well but it was way worse. definitely worth the extra $ to get 8350. Now i am stuck with a 8320 that i am trying to sell

Idle(2900 MHz) my chip runs on 1,200V.

I draw the line at 1,5 V, though thermal wise my wc-loop would be able to handle it.

I prefer to stay close to 1,45 V Max. The chips with proper cooling can handle it.
