The 8350 is a multithreaded monster but in gaming it just pretty much gets falcon punched by the Intel quads

I ALMOST got a 8320 but with the 990fxa and 8320 it would've been around $250

For $203 I got a FX 6300 and 990fxa

I'd rather have the 8320 but for the price i'm sure i'll love the 6300 as my backup gamng/streaming/htpc build

The hate comes in when the few boards that let you OC properly are just the Crosshair and maybe the sabertooth,. Both ATX boards. There are no mATX boards for overclocking, no mini ITX at all and the 8 cores seem gimmicky. Also for overclocking, it requires an expensice cooler even for a mild oc.

I got one, and it does good for what I need, but the lack of motherboards is what really turns me off.

Other than that the chip is great!!

Yeah again with the same excuses.
If you want high OC you need a good board. That is the same for Intel K cpus.
If you want to do an average OC nothing extreme there are a lot of decently priced boards out there for the 8320.
So high OC mATX and mini ITX boards are a must I take it. This CPU is crap without great OC mATX boards boards. Again a senseless excuse.
OC doesn't require a more expensive cooler then the one you would use for an i5 or an i7.

Not true at all. I had a 4.8Ghz 3770K paired with an 85 dollar Pro 3 and it ran flawlessly for 6+ months.

For some reason its not displaying the above quoted text

I don't think there's a lot of hate for it, that would be silly. You're just on a site where a majority of the people are primarily using their PC's for gaming, and that's not the FX-8320's strong suit, so people are more likely to opt for Intel.

If you can make use of what the 8320 has to offer, it's a powerful CPU. But you have to get it using all eight cores.
