Nice. Heat added.

This is a good price but I can't recommend using it in a gaming rig unless your going to try for 4.8ghz.
#3
Typical just ordered at £125.

Good price heat added.

Cancelled and ordered this price :D

Cheers

This chip is fine for a decent gaming rig. What crap u talking about

This chip is fine for a decent gaming rig. What crap u talking about

I owned the 8320 clocked at 4.4ghz and was tearing my hair out why I was getting such poor frame rates now change to a stock clock 3770 at 3.4ghz and all my problems went away in games such as Skyrim and Borderlands 2. You would get better gaming performance from buying a standard I5. But when it comes to multitasking and rendering the fx is brilliant.

Never heard such rubbish regarding frame rates, I own a 6350 and get ultra settings on skyrim bf3 & 4 at 50fps or more with an r9 270x. My friend owns this and a 7950 and gets more.

Sounds like too overclocked and overheating which was killing the performance.

It was running off a h80 never got over 60c at the core. I don't like avg frame rates as its does not tell you the whole story I always look for min frame rate in borderlands 2 it was going down to 25fps with skyrim was going down to 45fps. Battlefield and Tomb Raider its all about the graphics card. Amd are so far behind in single core performance its alarming. A 3ghz I5 has a better single core performance then the fx 9370.


Take A look here.

I know Intel are better and ahead of the mark also cheaper to run with power etc.

But I have a rig that is ready for this CPU It would cost me at least £200 to go down the intel route dont have the money :(

So this is a good buy for me.

The GameGPU results are in Crossfire and SLI,not single cards.

Thief uses Mantle,so that means with AMD cards once you get to 1920X1080 the card becomes the bottleneck.

This pushes an addtional CPU load as a result,plus the setups are well over a £1000.

What motherboard were you using BTW??

A mate runs Borderlands 2 on an overclocked FX6300 and a HD7870XT,and has not seen these dips.

Plus Skyrim is a third person perspective single player game,meaning measurebating about framerates does not really matter for it.

Even my Core i5 can get below 40FPS at times,but I have dozens of mods,and it only happens in one part of a town in that game.

Edit to post

I had a look on YouTube:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0CRdaiRz-Ik

That is an FX8350 and a R9 270X running Borderlands 2 at 1920X1080 on Ultra settings with FXAA.

55FPS minimum,80FPS average and 120FPS maximum.

I was using a ASUS M5A97. Those results from watch dogs are from techspot the same company which put amd graphics card ahead of nivida on watch dogs they are not to be trusted on these results. I actually hate both Intel and Amd. I hate Intel for being lazy no real improvement in the last three years. Amd for not doing enough to try catch up no new fx coming this year. I went down the second hand market and won a i7 3770 from ebay for £125 now running at 4.2ghz. I think at this price you would be better off getting the fx 6300 and buying a nice water cooler and try for 4.6ghz.

That motherboard has a 4+2 phase VRM design - its quite possible that that at 4.4GHZ the FX8350 was throttling under heavy load since the VRMs could not handle it when overclocked. The ASUS M5A97 EVO would have been a better choice as it has a 6+2 phase VRM(can handle upto a 275W TDP),and with the earlier PRO version could overclock Phenom II X6 CPUs fine. There is also the GA-970A-UD3P with an 8+2 phase VRM too. If I were going the FX83** route I would get the FX8320 and put the money towards the motherboard and cooling.

Having said that an FX6300 setup would save more money towards a graphics card and pushes motherboards and coolers less when overclocked too. Plus it would be cheaper and more money could be put towards the graphics card,and it might end up faster in many games.

TBH,we do seem to have a decent choice of Intel and AMD CPUs now between £50 to £120,with well priced mini-ITX to full ATX motherboards,so its actually not too expensive to build a fairly reasonable rig nowadays,especially since there seems to some nice reductions on the GTX660,GTX760,R7 265,R9 270,R9 270X,R9 280 and R9 280X too.

Regarding Watch Dogs,dual GPU setups put far more stress on the CPU due to the drivers - it would have been nice if single cards were tested too.

Toms Hardware also tested Watch Dogs too.
