well depends how you get your tax return, if its a snails pace like me, wait to see what is on AM4 at the get go, those should be close to market by the time taxes come back.


getting a newer fx chip is just gunna yield a variation of the same it is a true side grade, they will top out at the same frequencies, heat is still a factor as these chips LOVE amps and those will heat you up more than volts netting you in a very similar position with maybe 100-300mhz higher clocks.

Yeah I guess I should've worded it better, my bad. What you said is very true though as I received valuable information from at least 4 of the regulars in this thread and there is never an end all be all solution to something like this.

I'm mostly just curious what kind of end results I'll see on another chip since I feel like it was a little bit of a waste to buy the Sabertooth, a better more reliable PSU and H240-X cooler if all I ever got out of my chip was like 4.5-4.6 I probably could've achieved that on a cheaper board. I feel like I've got a decent base system and I'd like to see how far it can take a chip that isn't such a hog. Then again buying a better PSU and cooler isn't exactly a detrimental thing since I can carry those forward to future builds..problems.


I initially thought about buying an Intel platform to see how things are on the other side but then I thought with AM4 and Zen not too far off it'd be wiser to wait and see what it brings to the table and just play with another FX chip in the mean time as I've had no real complaints with this CPU aside from my chip eating volts like its no ones business.

If I ended up with a stable 5GHz clock I'd be happy but even if I managed to stabilize 4.8 or 4.9 I wouldn't be complaining as it's still a performance increase (Albeit slight) over my chip running at 4.5 like it has for the past while and it'll be another learning experience so who could say no to that?

well, being the winter i don't have a "true" answer for you, I replaced my old 8350 due to bent pins (i don't have super still hands so i didn't want to risk snapping a pin) so i got a 8370e that was on open box discount (got to store 15mins b4 closing after bending pins)

also considering that i've switched coolers also skews the answer a little bit

but going from a h100i to a captain 360 (deep cool) isn't a huge change but it is a change and i'm only really managing 200mhz more than I did last winter.

seeing some benchmarks on sources I trust, state that are almost equal in stock config, but i don't run stock config at all.

I would think the money spent to expand your 240x would be less than what you would spend on a new chip and likely get you to the same place (totally IMHO)

What a coincidence..theres an open box 8370e selling with a 10% discount on $279 CAD I was looking at and I was actually thinking I might pick up a 360 rad and place it up top and front mount my H240-X at the same time as I grab the 8370e just cuz the rad isn't too expensive ($62-69.99 CAD)

According to the secretary at work our T4 slips should be arriving this week and being mailed out the following week. I'll have her hold mine to be picked up in person and with any luck I'd have my return roughly a week from the time I bring it to my tax guy.

Wow , that seems steep. They have the 9370 for 269 at the egg right now.

9590 is $180 US at Microcenter, so $11 less.

That seems to line up with my experience of getting 200mhz improvement per 120mm increase in rad size I went from 4.6-4.8ghz upgrading from Antec 620 to glacer 240l

the existence of the FX8370 and fx8370e essentially render the FX 9 series a Bad deal.

did they continue the 9 series after the E variation were released? I don't know i've not seen em instore enough to think that they are merely getting rid of the last few batches that were sitting around.

i'm almost willing to bet they are all silicone from while the process was still maturing.
