My System Specs

My friend just picked up a 8350 with an AM3+ sabretooth. We both did cinebench test at 4.5 ghz. I had a 3570K which does not have hyperthreading and he barely beat me. I think it was 7.43 to 7.24 if I am not mistaken.
Agree. And in your last scenario the 8350 would be sucking back substantially more power than the 3570k.
