Many people with twin tower air coolers top out around 4.7-4.8 ghz with the 8350. I got 4.8 with mine but so much depends on the case, its fans, and the motherboard.

If you is willing to overclock your CPU, the 'late' FX-8370 do have some good numbers regarding clocks and voltages.

Remember you need a good motherboard to proper overclock FX-8XXX. VRM Layout play a good role in the equation. Also good cooling on it is a must.

I have one FX-8350 and it is a great CPU. It´s old ? Yes. Is EOL ? Yes. But it runs everything with great performance and modern games run awesome.

Old games runs well too, i have none problems with them.

Good Luck !

End Of Life. The next generation of AMD CPUs, Zen, is scheduled to be released in October or so. The prices for FX should drop then.

There are newer AMD cpus, but currently the FX-8350(and it's higher clocked variants) is the closest AMD cpu performance wise to the i5 you asked about.

@7850k Yeah that's how it usually goes. This thread is very nice tho with good information and no egos.

We are all excited about Zen!
