Either way I call bs. If you had that kind of OC you'd have proof somewhere. A validation screenshot 3dmark run. A post with you talking about it.

I am quite sure I did, but I don't want to argue, I didn't overclock to show it off. I had no idea that it was such a uncommon overclock. I can assure you I would not believe someone either if they claimed a very high overclock with no proof.

In every game I've played, my FX 8320 @ 4.7Ghz has easily outperformed my old Phenom II X4 965 @ 4Ghz. In games like BF3 and BF4, the difference is night and day, especially on my Crossfire setup.

On old games, you won't see much of a difference, but an FX 8 core @ 4.7Ghz has more than enough power to punch through older titles that might be single/dual threaded. If you're looking for raw benchmark scores in older titles, an intel i5 3570k will be faster. No doubt about that. However, if you turn off the FPS meter, good luck telling a difference between 500 and 300 fps in Half-Life 2. wink.gif

Also, I've "only" hit 4.7Ghz on my FX 8320 using a Corsair H110 water cooler. Bear in mind, the FX 8320's are not binned as high as the 8350 or 9xxx chips, but I will tell you that unless you get a SERIOUS air cooler or AIO water unit, don't expect to go much higher than about 4.6Ghz on an FX 8350 without some powerful fans. The FX chips start heating up really quickly once you exceed 1.425 Vcore. Good luck. thumb.gif

That's some really good information man. I appreciate you taking the time to answer. That's about a $40 difference. If I water cooled the 8350 what do u think I could get out of her. I have a Asus sabertooth r2 0

Since you have an Antec 900 case, you will be limited to a single 120mm AIO water cooler.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835181030

That one is $80. It's a little pricey, but the performance benefits are worth it. Since you've got a 200mm top fan on your case, you can easily use that fan as the only exhaust and have that water cooler pull in from the back of the case, so that will help performance some.

If you wish to stick with your current cooler, get a couple of these fans: http://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-F12-PWM-Cooling-Fan/dp/B00632FL8A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1389408934&sr=8-1&keywords=noctua+nf-f12

Those fans have a lot of static pressure, so they are really good for heatsinks.

I didn't like the color but from what I gathered from reviews and customer reviews those fans were cats ass... So I'm gonna put that in push pull and see what I can get out of the phenom II. Gonna purchase a new chip soon but I just don't know what to get. Should I wait for the 9590 to come down from 299...
