I think 4.5 is basically the maximum this chip can do. Not once have I had a chip that OC'd exceptionally, they were all average or below.

At stock with turbo enabled, my 9370 would auto set the voltage to 1.58, when I get a chance I'll test out the usage differences.

Possible, but the poorest of my FX 8xxx's would do 4.7 ghz prime stable given an excellent supporting cast.

9xxx FX chips are typically high-leakage parts. They'll consume more power than an 8xxx FX at the same voltage and clockspeed settings.

Just a quick example using a low leakage 8370 at different voltages @ 4.5 ghz
1.47volts

1.51 volts


Now add another .07 volts to that and it is what my 9370 would use at it's stock turbo speed of 4.7ghz.

EDIT: example of how much more efficient the 8370 is

Point well taken. Some of the newer 9590s aren't quite as bad, but they're still binned for high leakage. If all you care about is maximum clockspeed under any conditions, that's great (provided you have the necessary cooling). If efficiency is even any little part of the equation, blah.

Btw those 8370 power numbers are pretty nice. Vishera has come a long way . . . and that isn't even an e part.

I didn't XD

That being said: The reason I stayed with my FX-8300 as long as I did was the low cost for a very fast processor. I had mine at max - up to 4.7ghz. I was stable at 4.5ghz. It was a very very nice rig. Only reason I switched to Intel was the Winter Deal. Honestly my PC is *very* overpowered for what I actually do, but it's nice knowing that it will last me a very long time and still be able to do things I want it to do when I need some extra processing power.

Whatever the successor to Zen is - provided it stands up to Intel in a reasonable fashion - Will hopefully tempt be back to the Red side of things. I do like AMD stuff, however it just isn't comparable to other offerings at the moment. (but I've a better tech budget now than I did 3 years ago. For those with a low budget, AMD is still an option IMHO)

It really has in the area of power usage. I have both versions of the 8370 - they undervolt very well by comparison to early Vishera's. 4.5 ghz at under 1.4 volts, 4.96 ghz at 1.44 on the e chip.
Remarkably little difference between my 4790K and the 8370e for power usage at those clocks , there is a very steep voltage wall just beyond that for the Vishera however and power used vs work done varies but nearly always favors the Intel chip. The power usage shown is total system power from my daily driver 8370,CHV-Z,780Ti classy, 8 gb of 2400 mhz ram ( could be even more efficient if i dropped the freq - cpu/nb volts) 3 drives 6 120 fans , NZXT hue, thermaltake extreme water 2.0 on extreme settings, and case lighting on the Stryker.

Daily clock/voltage ( probably could go lower on the vcore and cpu/nb)

I upgraded my 8120 to an 8350 when the 8120 died because an i5 3570k cost about £50 more at the time making the 8350 a competitive choice (needed new mobo to). I don't feel like it was a bad purchase, feels like it was good value to me for what I paid. For the time being, my practically stock 8350 (won't OC) can run all the games I have on ultra settings at 60fpsish 3 years after it launched.

I do envy those who bought an i5 2500k near launch though, still competitive with Intel's latest with a modest OC and able to run anything top settings games wise 4 years on.

The 9XXX power usage was outrageous, the post batch 1429 8xxx Vishera's are much better , do you know what batch your chip is?
