More ghz and less vcore sounds good to me

If it's binned better consistently, you might be losing 4% performance on your 8350 (4.8ghz vs 5.0) but that's not worth $279 or even $100 IMO, if you were paying a premium for benchmark breaking scores, then it might be

well my MOBO is not a bad one, e9 asrock so i am not worried about that

How long will this 8350 last at these volts? With the 9XXX I'm good for 4-6 years before needing to go looking for a replacement.

My last puter lasted 6 years and the one before that lasted 4 years. Oh, and it's more like 4.7 vs 5.2ghz.

The 8350 will last the same amount of time as a 9590 will at the same voltage. If 9590 is better binned or you get a good one, it might clock 200 or 400mhz higher (if)

If people are getting 5.2ghz on 9590's as easily and on the same voltage levels as people are on average gettin 4.7ghz on 8320's and 8350's, then you must have info i don't, cause that sounds crazy wink.gif

I paid $195 for this 8350 and the 9370 is $250.
