As i seen, Piledriver is noticeable better chip for gaming then Bulldozer. I can maybe strech for FX 8320, so thats option too.I now have FX 8120 and its clocked to 4.0Ghz.
6300 and a asus sabertooth 990fx. My 8150 is clocked at 5 ghz in my sabertooth.

Once we were done with the optimized CPU OC settings, we reset the BIOS and proceeded to see how far we could push our Intel Core i7 3770k. We weren't disappointed with the performance of the ASRock Z77 Pro3. Our maximum stable overclock with ambient cooling has been 4.7GHz, and we were able to hit that without an issue today!

Oh, but it's true that Asrock board isn't as good for overclocking with lliquid nitrogen. Gee, who would every consider getting it instead of the ROG board now? /sarcasm

Locked i5 vs 6300 is the sum of the argument, and a six core CPU with tons of overclockability, wins, hands down.
Then why is it the only benchmark thread you ever link is that thread with a few GPU-dependent games showing tied performance between an fx-8350 & delidded i5-3570k? There ARE gaming benchmarks out there showing locked i5s vs overclocked Vishera chips. You just don't like to use them for some reason. proof.gif

What happened here then? Why would a lowly locked i5 2400 (old sandy, not even Ivy) pull more frames than an FX-6300 at 4.8GHz?

Something looks wrong with that graph. Can you post more from that source?

I just did a fraps bench run in Skyrim just outside Whiterun on my i5-2400. Same settings as in that graph. I guess it makes sense if they went by max fps. This is from the frapslog. Fraps recording sure does kill this cpu though. It puts me in the 20's while recording.

Folks, let us keep it clean in here, shall we? No need for foul languages, and name calling(eg. intel fanboys,amd fanboys)..

Thanks

Either way, NH-D14 will cool the chip, i5 or FX ( i will return to overclocking later if i buy locked i5 now ). i5 is significantly better on power too, and i presum in gaming scenarios. I also think that FX 6300 @ 4.5 Ghz is on pair with i5 i n general on games but with much more power draw. So is it worth to swap FX 8120 for i5 3330 ???

Itomic, I missed this post amongst all the bickering not related to your decision, and I played a big part in making your thread confusing, so I want to apologize.

I didn't realize earlier that you could get a straight swap without spending any money for the i5. That makes upgrading to the i5-3330 a good gaming upgrade. But if you can get an fx-6300 for the same amount you can sell your fx-8120 for, that is also a good upgrade. And you're right that, in general, the fx-6300 & that i5 will perform about even.

BUT, while on paper either upgrade is good, looking at the specs for your computer I see you have an LC Power Green Power 560w. This is one of those units which lies somewhat about its true wattage capacity but is not otherwise terrible quality (according to some google searches). As a result, I'm hesitant to suggest a heavy overclock on the fx-6300 for fear of stressing your power supply. Currently you say your fx-8120 is overclocked to 4.0 ghz, so if you're stable and don't have problems now, you should at least have some overclocking headroom on the fx-6300. But you might be better off with the i5-3330 because a) you don't have to put any money in and b) you'll have no worries on the power front.

Sorry I couldn't be more certain about what is the right choice! Personally, I'd probably go for the i5-3330, especially if you think your fx-8120 will sell for less than the cost of the fx-6300. But if you like to tinker and upgrade a lot and would change out your processor again in a year or so when the new AMD processors come out, there's a good argument for keeping your current motherboard. The good news is both choices are upgrades.

Edit: Finally found a good review of the LC 6560GP3 @ tomshardware.de:
http://www.tomshardware.de/LC-6550GP2-V2.2-LC-6560GP3-V2.3-LC-Power,testberichte-240781.html
According to google translate your PSU can be considered a quality 450w model, but not really a 560w model. This doesn't really change my recommendation above. A quality 450w system is borderline for an overclocked fx-6300 - so you might not be able to overclock very high. But it's tough to be certain.

About PSU, it is more then capable coping with overclocked FX 6300. I have power metter so i can monitor power draw at any given moment. It holds withouth problems even FX 8120 overclocked to 4.6Ghz, and FX 6300 for sure draws less power then overclocked bullodozer. I wil decide about swap or upgrade in the next few days.
