Just bought an FX 8350!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Got one today from Tiger Direct in Raleigh for 169.99. Excited. I also ordered an Asus 990x motherboard for 105$ yesterday. Going to retire my old 880g motherboard and 965 BE. The new tech will be paired with my current Vertex 3 and GTX460.

I haven't searched all that hard, but are there any thoughts on what 8350's overclock better according to serial number or the date of manufacture?? I remember reading about the older Phenom II's and certain grouping of processors according to when they die was produced or something.........

Yay!

To answer your question, not that sure. What cooling would you pair it with?

Currently I am using a Cooler Master, but it is not the 212. It is a slightly smaller model that uses two 92mm fans. It is bigger though that the Hyper TX3. I can't seem to find it on the TD website where I bought it earlier this year and I don't have the box anymore.

Are you referring to steppings? C3 is the stepping that OC'd better i think on the 965s

Congratulations! These chips run hot so good cooling is a must. Even a golden 8350 will be limited to 4.4 or 4.5 GHz if you don't have high-end air or water cooling.

To answer your serial question, I remember there being an overclock database for Visheras but I can't find it right now. Your chip's VID will be a good indicator of quality though.

Edit: I'm an idiot, the owners club has the database: http://www.overclock.net/t/1318995/official-fx-8320-fx-8350-vishera-owners-club/0_20

Sounds like you are referring to the Hyper N520. I don't think that cooler will get you very far with an 8350. These suckers do run HOT.
