A 5970 kicks the crap out of a 680 video card. It won't stall out the cpu, that's a bunch of crap. I have a 5970 and only use 50% of all the cores on my 8350 when playing bf3 at ultra on everything. Here's the spec comparison. Opinions are like a-holes....everyone has one. Lets stick with the facts.

Bulldozer was an utter failure but Piledriver is utterly brilliant, much better power consumption, Less heat, more overclocking headroom, much better performance and the list goes on.

Both camps are fine for gaming. If you're into heavy editing and rendering the FX8350 will be utterly brilliant considering its price tag.

That said I believe the 3570K to be the best gaming cpu on the market.


Stop being fanboi's and start being enthusiasts.
^ totally agree

One can obviously see the difference between fanboys and those that are really into the topic to improve everybody's knowledge about it. There are so many speculations and theories about why i5-3570k > FX 8350 or vice versa. However, it is rather wrong and noobish for someone to conclude such claims without proof or conclude it as rubbish, useless or foolish to go with it. The FX 8350 will be GOOD for gaming, period. As to how much is it better or worse than the i5-3570k? It's up for you to experience once you consider factors like budget, preference, futureproofing, and so on. In the end, PREFERENCE WILL NEVER BE CALCULATED NOR COMPUTED. Such thinking goes to other popular debatable topics as well like mac vs pc, nvidia vs amd... it will be endless! Keep your biased "conclusions" to yourself... conclusions, not opinions..

A 5970 kicking the crap out of a 680? I'm sorry but this is laughable laugher.gif

Particularly, a 680 Lightning will run circles around a 5970 all day! Every day!

To the OP

- Regardless of your choice, Ivy or the FX 8350: Don't expect to get either of them to 5.0Ghz on an H100

Ivy due to the Tim issue
FX 8350 due to heat/quality

While there are some FX 8350's that can hit 5.0Ghz+ it takes a high end board (Sabertooth 2.0, ASRock 990FX Extreme 9, Crosshair V-Z) and great cooling (Custom Water)
There are some FX 8350's that could hit 5.0Ghz with an H100, but that would be a Golden Sample.
(Golden FX 8350: All Modules are equal in quality - they can all hit the same frequency with the same amount of voltage - medium stock Voltage ~1.34v with Turbo Disabled)

So if you go by the ideal that you could get 4.5-4.7Ghz out of either of them on a well priced motherboard and a high end air cooler or closed loop water cooler.

Edited: You could probably game at 5.0Ghz with either system, but you wouldn't be able to stress the system to know if it's stable.

My personal choice would be
i5 - gaming only, extremely easy to OC
FX 8350 - gaming, extreme multi-tasking, multithreaded tasks, easy to OC but takes a bit more research/MOBO choice important

If you decide to go with 680's in SLI then either setup will be fine with that as well.

Agreed. 4.5 is easy enough on my 8350 (1.4v 22.5x multi), I could probably do 4.75GHz if I could fit my second fan on my H100
