Unless he goes in big for a FX-9590 if he really wants it.

If your goal is Arma III.you need Sandy bridge or newer intel cpu.the fx vishera cpus are tweaked version of the bulldozer cpus back in 2010-2011.what else are you going to play?

But as he wrote. He wants budget and of your going to spend on a 9590 you can get an i7 for same cost, maybe not the best one but a better performance than 9590. Like I said before if budget go 6300 with a good motherboard (bc you need it to over clock ) and I'll give ya my enermax t 40 black air cooler that I don't use

My Firestrike physics score with Phenom X6 at 4.1GHz is 8700 biggrin.gif

The thuban does better in newer games/apps than it did when it came out due to dev optimizations..... AMD chased that multi core market a little earlier than they should have, and now you end up with this CPU still relevant almost 5 years later..... rolleyes.gif

Seems a little off topic, but my point to the OP is, drop the whole "which chip hits 5GHz thing?".....
The real question is; which chip with the amount of money you have to spend, with an average documented overclock (through forums and reviews), will perform the very best for what you do on your system........ thumb.gif

Let us know the absolute REALISTIC amount of money you are spending on this upgrade (TOTAL for CPU & MOBO only to keep it simple)

Then tell us exactly what you want to do with the system, whether it be one thing primarily, or multiple things equally etc.....

THEN, and ONLY THEN, can we really suggest anything.....

I mean, hell... if you just want 5GHz no matter what, go pickup a used i5 2500k on ebay with a decent used board, throw it under water, and your odds of hitting 5GHz ARE WAY BETTER...... oh.... and that chip at 5GHz is NO JOKE, especially compared to the 965 you are running....
But then I'd be recommending you buy old hardware wouldn't I? You see the issues now with your question......

The fx-6300 is perfect for what you're trying to do. You could easily hit 4.8ghz and stay under 60c with an h60

No they really dont overclock well at all. They have a stock 4GHz turbo speed and usually top out somewhere between 4.5-4.7GHz from what I see from most people. If you want 5Ghz then you should not try to get lucky with one of these. The FX-6300 is also quite random, I see a ton of people who can not get them above the mid 4GHz area (myself included), and yet there are others who can run close to 5GHz on them. Too random for what you want.

The highest likelihood of 5+ GHz is the FX-8370E, since it is a special model with much less leakage than the others and works best for air overclocking. Many of them hit around 5GHzish. The cost might be more than you want though for upgrading on a dead platform.
