No mean to derail but I'm kinda in the same boat, wondering if the I5 vs I7's a better buy, awhile back I would instantly say i5 but new titles may begin to use more threads now because of the next gen systems, I think I heard something about the 8350 having a lead over the I5 in a game which was using it's cores and threads.

I have dug around the 9370/90 fsb hole thread where people were overclocking them and asked for some advice. I tried so many overclocks but none are stable. With and without fsb overclocks.

I have a few things i still can try but i doubt i can get it much higher. Some of these just wont overclock.

This isnt my first fx chip. Went from 6300 to 8320 to this chip and it cant go a whole lot higher than my 8320

I also need to run 1.56v to keep my last two cores from failing almost instantly which may explain the temps

The i7 is slowly creeping up to the i5 and the poor FX is last eek.gif

so is the i7 worth it?

From personal experience, I have previously owned an FX-8350, and now a 4770K. The FX-8350 was great for everything EXCEPT gaming for me. Reason being most games I play are MMO's which are CPU intensive, rather than GPU. Specifically, the games were Tera and WoW. This is due to single core performance, where I experienced, and "Googled" was extremely poor on the FX-8350. FPS in Tera dungeons on the FX would drop below 10, as with the 4770K, would never drop below 40, same GPU. If whatever app/game fully supports multi-core, then the FX-8350 has some great potential, for e.g. Video encoding, 3D rendering, multi-core games (BF4 afaik). However the pure performance from my 8350 to my 4770K is quite large. Even with rendering (I do some 3D interior design w/ Corona) and the 8350 couldn't touch the speed of my 4770k.

My conclusion would be:
FX-8350
Pros:
-Great Multi-core performance if supported
-Bang for Buck
Cons:
-Terrible single-core performance
-Overly slower than 4770K
-I struggled to get a decent O.C.

4770K
Pros
-Excellent single-core performance
-Outstanding overall performance, even with HT disabled and stock clocks.
-Easiest 4.2ghz O.C I have ever attempted.
Cons
-O.C. runs quite hot
-Hurt my pocket

I guess people should drop the money and bet for the i7 4770k, great multi-core and single-core, however, if you don't have the money?!? FX or i5

(can you come up with another phrase other than "to be continued"

Check my CPU experience in my sig. I voted for the i5 for your needs based on your original post and my own experience.

i7 4770k is 48% more expensive than the 4670k and as our lord and master Linus shows us that in real world gaming performance all these chips are near equal so no need to spend the extra $$$ on the i7 for gaming.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4PDoy-mi0A

with all the chips performing near identically the clear winner becomes the one with the best performance to dollar ratio and that's the FX-8350 with the 4670k coming in right behind it at just $30 more.

so basically at the end of the day it really comes down to whether you are an intel person or an AMD person. you should either go with the FX-8350 or the 4670k depending on which company you prefer.

that wasn't so hard was it? thumb.gif

Based on some calculations I did here's what i've come up with

FX 8350 + Crosshair V Formula Z= 500$

i7 4770k + Maximus Vi Hero= 655$

i5 4670k + Maximus Vi Hero= 535$

The Formula Z is the best AM3+ mobo out there as far as I know

The Maximus VI Hero is ASUS's entry level gaming mobo: Great Overclocking and overall performance

thumb.gifthumb.gif

I'm leaning towards the FX but I'll need to get a custom WC loop if I want to get to 5ghz

Darn. Can't DECIDE redface.gif:o:o:o:o:o
