Throw me some opinions

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, Im looking for some opinions here and Im totally open to any suggestions/criticism anyone may have to offer, Im just about to tear down my current sig rig and transfer everything into my new case along with a few minor upgrades, Im currently running a 960T@4ghz which wont stay 100% stable unlocked no matter how much tweaking I do. What Im looking for is whether or not you would upgrade to a Vishera 6300 or 8320?

You won't see a large difference in single threaded games but probably more in multithreaded. Since you already have a AM3 board I would stay with AMD. Vishera also offers massive performance upgrades looking at the FPU which will make your computer faster in video editing by allot. Vishera also overclocks better. It's up to you if your not happy with your Phenom.

Without a doubt sticking with AMD on this one, Its not that Im not happy with the 960T I guess it might just be more of a upgrade itch because Im already going to have the machine torn down so I figured why not look into it.

You've got the Kuhler 920 and the Crosshair Formula V motherboard, so go for it! The Vishera is a nice bump up in most respects from the Phenom II quad core I had. Virtually nothing runs slower and many things run noticeably faster, but I highly recommend you go with the FX-8350, not the 8320.

Any particular reason for the 8350 over the 8320? Just curious as I was under the impression from reading reviews and such that they were identical in OC ability, I might have missed something however in looking into them.

I don't really get his point. It's the same CPU except that it has a lower stock clock. If you're into overclocking and have a good mobo then go for the 8320, otherwise go for the 8350.

There is some thought that the 8350's are higher binned and will likely be better overclockers than the 8320's. I thought this was the case with the Bulldozers and sprung for the 8150 over the 8120 and didnt seem to get anything out of it. Im reading about a whole lot of 8120's up near 5 Ghz while Im stuck at 4.6 with my "higher binned" 8150. So I call BS (Barbara Streisand) on that theory. Get the 8320 and save the $40 for something else. And as for the original question, yes I think you should go ahead and upgrade. The 8320 would be a nice upgrade over a quad Thuban especially with a healthy overclock on it.

You can get an 8320 that overclocks really well, but for the most part, 8350s seem to do that more often. Look here.
