Sometimes even thick chinese power cables are actually less than 0.5mm^2:

Yeah, that's why you should always buy good quality wire. Unfortunately almost everything comes from china nowadays but luckily there are some good hardware stores that sell good quality wire over here.

Yeah, actually, it was a cable from my Chinese audio DAC. I even read the power rating on the cable and it should have worked, but no, it was one of those "thick" ones with hardly any actual metal in them.

I'd say always use the cord that came with your PSU.

I came across this post in another forum talking about the upcoming 480X being paired with an FX8350. Any opinions? Even though current FX chips are long in the tooth, I thought this underestimated them a little bit. I thought plenty of people on this form were running two high end cards.

If performance is actually around an R9 390X, then yes, it's likely you'll encounter issues because of that CPU. Sometimes minor, sometimes significant, sometimes not at all. Depends on the titles played, can't guarantee anything though. The highest end GPU I recommend pairing with an FX processor is around the level of an R9 380 and a GTX 960, any higher is guaranteed to see issues in specific titles, and the higher you go, the more titles.

While the author of that quote is of course right for the most part, I wouldn't necessarily follow his/her recommendation. I'm quite happy with my 8350@4.6/GTX970 setup. Obviously there's titles that are CPU bound and only utilize the GPU at ~50% but f.e. DayZ Standalone, ARMA 3, CS:GO or Guild Wars 2 would show the same thing on a 6700k/380X or GTX960 setup - just with about x1.5 more fps. DOOM, RainbowSix Siege and The Division o.t.h. run very nicely on my setup. So it really depends on the game.

"Running into issues" is not very good choice of words here t.b.h.; it's not like it would run better with a slower GPU...

erm. Benchmarks maybe?

Scroll up a few pages and you will see this:

http://wccftech.com/fx-8370-i5-6400-gaming-comparison/

Bottom line, if the titles you play are within the list, FX will do just fine.

But, if starting from scratch, I wouldn't really recommend an FX at this time. Zen is coming. And Intel's offering can give you better longevity. Even if the prices are lower going with the FX, the performance that you can get from Intel is undeniable.

Save for months and wait til Zen surfaces or start thinking going the Skylake way.

I'm excited to see AMD getting aggressive on GPU pricing. I'm interested to see how prices trend after Polaris hits the marketplace.

Nice benchmarks Mus1mus. I know FX processors are not the fastest and never were. I am cautiously optimistic that the 8 core optimization/DX11 in games will help them a wee bit over the next couple years. OCing the FX has been fun and rewarding regardless of performance.

If you are a gamer, and you are running an FX rather than a K series i5/i7 you really should buy 780ti + or 290X + , what you save on cpu can pay for the difference between a those cards and a 960 or 380X. Crysis 3 running a decent overclock on the FX , I can wring the guts out of my 780ti classified, even at 1080 with medium settings.
I can however see recommending those lesser video cards to guys building with i5's or i7's who are trying to push a high refresh rate monitor at lower resolutions, if their budget doesn't allow both the expensive gpu and cpus.
In my opinion a ghz edition 7970 should be the absolute minimum to pair with an FX 8 core. It can be made to maintain a 60fps minimum on most games at 1080 with lesser settings, the ones it can't even at low settings will probably show slowdowns due to poor cpu thread utilization when used in combination with any cpu prior to Skylake( perhaps even with skylake, I just haven't bought one to test for myself.) Add resolution or eye candy and visible slowdowns will become evident.

Just sounds like a guy who's only used intel all his life, tried an FX once, didn't overclock it correctly and now slates them or thinks they're heavily underpowered. I'd just ignore it and move on.

I went from my FX8350 to an intel i5 4670k and those extra 5fps really show how bad the FX is.... rolleyes.gif

I've been splitting my time between:

The Witcher: single player, DX9, single core only and it can get bad fps at times but mostly fps is good.

World of Tanks: MMO, DX11, 4 cores only and the fps never falls below 100.
