This will help temps stay low.

990FXA-GD65 8+2 Yes 140W - Recommended for OC Yes

While MSI isn't noted for their AMD Motherboards, the MSI GD65 is decent. I don't believe you can check the VRM temps directly on that motherboard, but you should be able to get an idea of temps with the CPU Socket Temp. If you find it is getting too warm (Ideally it runs below 70C) then you can either place a small fan on the back of the socket (behind the motherboard) or an extra spot fan over the VRM heatsink itself.

I'm also in the market for a new CPU as I have the feeling my FX 4100 (stock) is seriously bottlenecking my recently acquired GTX 760. I have an AM3+ ready Asus motherboard (BIOS update done), so I only need the processing unit.
I read even a 6-series AMD might bottleneck the GTX 760 at resolutions above 720p - I have a 1920/1080 Eizo. Will the 8350 be a good match for my GPU/monitor?

Thanks.

I don't think that FX-6350 will be a bottleneck to GTX 760! It may bottleneck a 770 but that too in some CPU heavy games..

A 6350 will handle a 760 with no problems. It's quite a bit faster than a stock 4100. You're getting eight percent more raw clock speed, 10-15 percent more IPC, and two more execution cores. All in all, you'll gain 15-20 percent on single core, and at least 30 percent on multi-core aware workloads. More if you overclock the 6350.

Thanks for the replies. Gonna go with a 8350, it's only sligthly more expensive than a 6-series, and from what I read significantly more powerful.
What I don't get though are all the versions.
I found 8350 "Vishera", 8350 "Black Edition", 8350

Are there differences and if so, which?

There's only one version. Vishera is just the code name for the chip, like referring to a current Intel chip as Haswell. "Black Edition" is what AMD called its Phenom II chips with unlocked multipliers. They dropped the moniker for the FX chips because all of them ship unlocked, but some people still insist on calling them Black Edition.

All FX-8350 chips are the same.

"Vishera" is the codename for Piledriver based FX chips (AM3+ platform).FX 43x0/63x0/83x0/9xx0 are all Vishera. Piledriver based APU chips ( for FM2 platform) are called Trinity (the original series)/Richland (the refreshed ones). As jsc said, all FX 8350 chips are the same thing.

I'd like to chime in

I went from a 965BE @ 3.8 to an 8320, and glad I did. First off I'd like to say the 8320/50 are amazing for budget builds, you get the power that will plow through anything, but not as expensive as the intel quads, you get 8 cores so if you ever plan on to make videos, stream your gameplay or do heavy multitasking, the CPU will be up to it, I can now record my gameplay with no issue, where on my 965 it made bf4 unplayable when trying to record.

Some thing to mention when getting an 8320/50, Turn off turbo boost, one thing I noticed is that on stock they will have the 3.5->4.0 boost for 20 and 4.0 -> 4.5 I think for 8350's. Which is good, but AMD gives way more voltage then whats needed for those clocks. I noticed my voltages go from 1.3 to 1.4 when it would boost up to 4.0. Well I disabled and started to OC the CPU and it could get up to 4.1 with the 1.3 stock voltage without the boost. tongue.gif
not all may do this since every chip is difference but its worth mentioning to try this out.

also your 8350 can last you as long as they will run if you'd like, even if AMD is not making any new AM3+, that's not gonna stop your cpu from running thumb.gif
I'll be using my 8320 until it dies, They are good chips and they are worth the $.

What program did you use to get it to boost to 4.0 ? I was playing around with at everything at stock on my 6300, which is 3.5 stock, boost 4.1, and the best boost I could get was up to around 3.8 or so.
