Very nice!
4.6 seems a sweet spot in terms of voltage bumping. I need to go past 1.4v to get over 4.6 and I just don't want to.

Is the only difference between the 8320 and the 8350 clock speed? I want to buy one of these chips, but not sure I want to spend the extra $30/40 to spring for the 8350. I wonder if the 8320 will overclock just as well as the 8350, and if so, will it perform similarly? I.E., will it hit the same clock speeds, and will it have the same performance per clock?

These should be the same chips basically except that the 8320 might be a bit lower binned. If you look at user reviews and forums, people usually get the 8320 easily beyond 4.6 GHz which is seemingly the best performance/heat/consumption compromise.

The money you save on the 8320 you can invest in proper cooling ;).

I already have proper cooling... one of these...


with a Push/Pull config. It's currently keeping my 1055T at a frosty 52C at 4.0Ghz.

So, the 8320 can go beyond 4.6Ghz....what is the 8350 commonly capable of doing?

I'm just trying to determine if the 8350 is worth the extra green. If I can get the 8320 up to the same potential as an OC'd 8350, then what's the point in spending the extra money, right?

Well, because i got curious after reading your post, I spent some time going through forums and the consensus seems to be that the 8320 doesn't quite get as far as the 8350 and often requires a bit more voltage to produce similiar results. Both will hit at least 4.6 with 1.5v but above that you will need to feed the 8320 with quite a bit of voltage.

Its really only a 20 CAD difference if you buy/pricematch from direct canada, which is why I went with the 8350.

Okay, Thanks. I have some mulling to do, then.

I watched as video on Youtube about the 8350.... it beat intel 9/10 times... terrifying....
Heres the review...

Yeah....look I like my 8350. I like it a lot....BUT my 3770K eats its lunch in anything but iGPU gaming (and who honestly uses a iGPU for gaming on an enthusiast rig?). Not even in the same ball park. No one but ultra rabid AMD fanbois even argue otherwise (as its a 2bill vs 3 bill CPU!). Biased video is biased....and I didnt even bother clicking the link to know that.

AKG, I agree. I'm going to buy a Vishera as a temporary stopgap until I switch over (eventually) to Intel. Goodness knows I'd love a 3770K, but a total platform change is currently out of reach.

Plus, I just bought a used 990FX sabertooth, so I want to do that board justice!

I'm kind of in the same boat. I bought a Crosshair V with an EK waterblock a while back and I'd hate to ditch it. The other thing is that running eyefinity and one 7970, I don't think there's any bottleneck at all. The key to overclocking AMD processors and achieving big performance gains is increasing the CPU-NB. A lot of people just increase the CPU speed and call it a day, thinking they've done all they need to and leaving the rest alone. This week the FX-8350 is on sale at NCIX for $190 and because of that I have a hard time seeing where the benefits are in switching to Intel unless I was offered a smoking deal. I'm close to pulling the trigger for a Vishera.
