Great article: http://benchmarkreviews.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=962&Itemid=63

I am also upgrading to the 8350 and my mobo to formula v-z.

Want to upgrade my ram as well. I am going to get 32gb's of it just because lol. Even though the 8350 can only support 1866 duel and 1600 quad channel, would it not hurt to go with the higher frequency like 2400? My thinking behind this is, cant you slow the frequency down and get tighter timings with the higher frequency ram then going with sticks that are rated up to 1600 with looser timings? If my thinking is wrong please correct me. I am not going to spend that cash on the 2400 but wouldn't a person be better off getting the quad channel 1866? Thanks for any advice and knowledge you share a head of time.

also to sum up the link to the article if you don't feel like reading the whole thing:
Pros:

+ Eight cores and 5GHz on your desktop computer
+ Officially supports DDR3-1866 memory
+ Better performance than Intel on multithreaded tasks
+ An FX system has 38 usable PCI-E lanes as opposed to the 24 lanes of a Sandy Bridge system
+ Excellent price/performance ratio, finally competitive with Intel in the $200 CPU range

Cons:

- Single core performance still lags far behind Intel
- Few programs use new FX instructions like fused multiply-add, so the full performance potential remains untapped

Hopefully AMD will work on the ICP for jack hammer. If they do, expect a higher msrp and an AMD come back.

I actually changed my mind on the 32gb of ram. I went with the G.Skill Trident X 1600 to try them out. They are a little on the high side but the timing looks good.

Could someone advise me on which RAM would work best with my new(as yet uninstalled)AMD 8320 and Gigabyte GA 990 FXA UD3 Mobo? It looks as if the Coolermaster 212 Evo heatsink/fan will block at least 1 of the scokets unless I exaust the fan towards the front of my case, which may not be ideal.Also the memory sockets are numbered 1-4 with 4 being closest to the CPU / heatsink. When installing memory does it matter which scockets are used or in which order? Thanks for any help or feedback, I appreciate it.

From my research from the past week. Any 1600 casl 9 kit should be perfect. Anything more and its going overkill unless you do professional video editing or care about benchmarking. But as for real world every day use the difference is not noticeable. As for your CPU cooler, exhausting the air forward will mostliky mess up the air flow in you case, unless you have the rear fan as the intake and the front at an exhaust. I would recommend a zalmen cooler if the width of the cooler is a problem. Don't quote me on this but I was always told to start with the slots closer to the CPU.

Thanks for the response Masztalja. I think my only other choice for CPU fan direction is up, towards an exhaust fan. I have 4 fans I've installed : front low intake, rear high intake,side exaust and top exhaust. All are 120mm fans except the top which is a 140mm fan. However any way I install the heatsink/fan other than blowing forward it appears to cover #4( the closest to CPU) of the memory slots. If I'm left to choose between these 2 less than ideal issues, Forward blowing CPU fan or covered memory slot, which choice should I make?

why sacrifice the hardware you payed for. If you want to use it make it work lol. I am not sure if you are getting any benefit having both the front and rear being intakes I suggest this, having the front, and top fans being exhaust(higher speed) and rear and side being intake( lower speed then exhaust). The side fan should be the slowest of all the fans. Just trying to stir up and air that tends to hide from the air flow. Having it set too high will cause unwanted turbulence messing with the flow.

Just a quick reply as I've been swarmed with other unrelated troubles these days.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233186

I've installed 2 of them into RAM socket right underneath of Cooler Master 212 Hyper Evo and they fit like a glove[same mobo too]. Be sure to install them prior to installing th cooler though. Alternatively I think you can take of the fan and put it back on after mounting memory.

Hope this helps! ^^

P.S. So far, cooler master and just 2 case fans are keeping the case dead silent and frozen cold at 24-27 unloaded state. At max settings [thru sppedfan], I can make them actually be heard, but not by much. After this, my old PC sounds so loud haha.

Red Dog,
Thats great information. Also for some reason the included memory(in the combo deal I purchased)never showed.It was Mushkin Enhanced Silverline DDR3 1333, 2x4gb. I now have the option of getting something else. Any suggestions or advice? Thanks!
