What is 'good temps,' for you?

Bring up the console-window in BF3 and type in render.perfoverlayvisible 1 (might have to use perfoverlayenable first), and see if the cpu graph is below the gpu or is spiking alot (above the gpu-graph).

GPU is below CPU, no idea what that means.

Would you guys say I should go for an octa core instead of quad? Is that much better performance wise?

@aznpersuazn
To what point can you OC the 8320?

Performance wise, with the right CPU, you're essentially doubling it. (Yes I know this is oversimplified)

In my opinion, the CPU hitting as high as 80% can be indicative of the CPU being worked to near limit. I have played through BF3, and I have not seen my 8120 reach higher than 40% (so far, I also do not play online)

I know personally, my 8120 can reach 4.5Ghz. Either on air or Closed Water Loop. ( H100)
I've heard a few members on here say that their 8320's and 8350's can reach near 5Ghz without too much trouble.

Please keep offers to PM's. It keeps the thread clean...

Vishera chips can easily do 4.5 on air. Just make sure you have suitable cooling solutions for anything higher.

Then you are probably bottlenecked a little by the cpu. How much however, I can't say. You could get a 8320/50, or you could wait for Steamroller, which (optimistic) rumours say will have about 20-30% increased performance over Piledriver.

I don't know what Steamroller is but maybe I'll just go for a 8350.

It is next on AMD's CPU road map.
