5 out of 5 eggsExcellent CPU

Cons: Stock fan not so good.

Other Thoughts: Excellent upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsAMD Fx-8350

Pros: Best bang for the buck and the CPU runs everything just fine on a Asus Sabertooth MoBo with Ripjaws16g-1600 memory.. Will auto overclock to 4.3ghz with the stock cooler. I'm using the Corsair H100 cooler with the stock 200mm fans in my Cooler Master HAF-932, I've run up to 4.8ghz using the AMD program. Once over 4.8g the fans really dial up and things start humming. But since I have no programs or games that stress it, I leave it on auto tune.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Forget about power consumption! Just cooking a breakfast of bacon and eggs on my electric stove is equal to my PC running for 40 hours non-stop!

5 out of 5 eggsFX8350 = Beastmode

Pros: I built my 1st Gaming rig about 2 years ago purchased the FX8350 (the day it came out) I am running it with

MOBO: ASUS Crosshair V Formula
Ram: 32gb G-Skill Sniper
Cooler: Evo 212 dual airflow with 2-240mm 1-200mm 4-120mm fans.
Ssd: Phoenix 240gb
HDD: WD 500gb black edition (finally ran out of room & ordering a an additional 2tb black edition)
Graphics: MSI GTX 760 2gb
dedicated PhysX: GTX 570 1.5gb (more then enough as a dedicated physX processor)
PSU: SuperNova 1300 G2
Case: Thermaltake Chaser MK-1

This baby runs anything you can possible through @ it I have it OC'd to 4.5ghz and have literally tried to overload the system running every possible thing I could including every virus scan etc that I could think of @ 1 time and never used more then 26% of its total processing power (or more then 20% of my available ram)

My brother has an older generation I7 and performance wise both systems are very similar. This build also works very good for gaming (you won't hit 300fps) but you will never drop below 60 on ultra and you will average 130-160 Over all this CPU is AMAZING and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a good gaming system that can also out multitask Intel with very little effort.

Also: I would NOT!!! suggest doing this. but when I was OC'ing it I increased the voltage like 5x what its supposed to be and (should have instantly fried the entire system) instead it ran perfectly while testing a videogame for 5 minutes until (I noticed it and fixed it) I think that speaks pretty highly of the quality and wanted to mention it.

Cons: I can't say I've found any over the last 2 years with this.

1 out of 5 eggsTotal piece of junk

Pros: Big words

Cons: Melted onto my 150$ liquid cooler
Fried my board
Almost gave me a heart attack dealing with customer service

Other Thoughts: This useless waste of metal is by far the worst computer part Ive ever seen! I waited for 3 weeks to get it and when i mounted it i was so excited. I barely got done with my chrome install by the time it was beyond recovery heat wise.
P.S. my 120$ core i3 ran made this thing look like it was from the 80's when it came to performance

5 out of 5 eggsThe FX-8350

Pros: - Standard AM3+ socket
- Easily overclocked
- Best performance for price

Cons: - Runs hot with the stock cooler

Other Thoughts: I bought the 8350 for the performance it offers at an extremely good price point compared to other CPUs. Double the price for an Intel CPU doesn't justify the miniscule increase in performance. It locks in easy, is identified by the BIOS easy, and can be overclocked easily. 4.0GHZ to 4.5GHZ with ease without turbo turned on.

In terms of overclocking, I suggest getting a really good CPU cooler: Either a Noctua D14 (AIR) or corsair H100i (liquid). The CPU runs hot at stock (40ish Celsius idle) so I could imagine trying to overclock with the stock cooler. I used the D14 and went from 40ish Celsius to 12-15 Celsius at idle. Perfect now.

Overall, I highly recommend the 8350. It’s a solid, reliable CPU for the best price.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful and stable

Pros: This processor is a beast. Installed on a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 R mobo with a Corsair H105 water cooler in an Antec nine hundred ATX mid tower. Overclocked easily and has been running at 4.77 GHz for over one and a half years with no problems. This processor has been used heavily in C++/Java-GPU computation and has run at 100% for over three months straight without a single problem!

Cons: For the price, its not bad. A lot of programs are optimized for Intel procs and you do notice a slight decrease in performance in comparison. For instance, running a highly-parallel C++ with sufficient operations to utilize all cores, of which is compiled to maximize performance, a quad-core i5-760 in a comparable rig yields a decrease in performance by about 20% in comparison to the octa-core 8350.

However, for what you pay, you get more than your money's worth; allows more of your money to be spent on GPUs (if you like OpenCL), SSDs and more ram!

5 out of 5 eggsAMD FX-8350 BE

Pros: - Fast
- Overclocks well
- Relatively cool
- 8 Cores handles everything thrown at it.

Cons: - Stock radiator sucks.

Other Thoughts: Combined this with a Corsair H100i and have not looked back. Cool temps at 4.5Ghz with plenty of extra OC room. Runs all modern games I've thrown at it like it is nothing.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything it claims to be

Pros: Fast. Flexible. Performs as advertised. Will buy again.

Cons: Stock fan, as others have mentioned. Will purchase an improvement, and throw another one in the cart next time we buy this.

Other Thoughts: It's cool when it's idle, it's hot when it's not. Shouldn't be surprising to anyone if it's 55-65 under load with stock butter. AMD CPUs have always shipped with the same relative level of cooling hardware and it doesn't cost much more to just buy a better heatsink/fan; you're already getting a sweet deal on this thing for how well it performs.

2 out of 5 eggsGreat processor, terrible customer service

Pros: Excellent business/multitasking CPU.

Stock Cu/Al heatsink works well. I have never seen a real need to overclock this processor.

Cons: Warranty service

Other Thoughts: I have dealt with literally thousands of AMD processors. I have had fewer problems overall with them over the years than with Intel. They offer very good performance for the price.

HOWEVER, I have been trying unsuccessfully to RMA a defective FX-8350 since April via their website and by phone.

I've had two case numbers assigned, but have not received a valid RMA with return instructions. Most recently, a message sent via their own in-page service form generated an "Email Blocked" return email: "You submitted your Service Request from an email address that has not been registered in our Services Portal."

This despite that fact that I have successfully RMA'd AMD processors in the past using the same email account.

Very frustrating.
