Time to pull out the Linuix distro CD. Pull all but one stick of mem, yank the hdds and everything else not 100% needed...and try again under a dif OS. IF it still happens....time to return and replace.

What if I just put back the 1055t and see if that works no problem?

Problem is that wont show say an incompatibility with the CPU and mobo....just that the mobo and ram work perfect with your 1055. Honestly, I would be RMA'ing it and not bothering with more work..as its most likely toast....but if you want to be 100% sure (and dont have another mobo to try it on) remove all variables you can. :)

It's already out of the rig and back in the box. I'll take it back to Mem Ex tomorrow and get them to exchange it. I've never heard of this happening before. Odd.

I do actually have multiples of all the components I'd need to test. I have a couple of AM3+ mobos, 3 sets of RAM and a couple of SSD's.

If I have a problem with a second processor, then I have lots of options.

Edit: Screw it. I'm going to return it today, but instead of getting a new one I'll get a 3570K instead. They're holding a nice Z77 motherboard for me.

What?! Traitor!!

Just kidding. That was probably a good move if it was looking like you had to get another mobo for the 8350.

Actually, I have an extra AM3+ motherboard now. Sabertooth for sale in the BST.

And no worries, two other rigs in my house are still running AMD equipment, and no chance of changing those in the near future. They just got 'upgraded' (hand me downs)

I'd be interested in hearing your opinion comparison on the two cpus.

For what it's worth, I experienced a lot smoother gameplay coming from a 1055T @3.6GHz. The 8350 at stock speeds was a slight improvement already; at 4.6GHz it made quite a difference for my 7950's crossfire. GW2 became very playable even in wvw.

According to Sky's benchmarks, it is a marked improvement over an 1100T, even an overclocked one. Overclock it, and you're looking at even better gains!

Like sa seba said, smoother game play. With the 1100T, the odd time I would experience some stuttering, even with decent frame rates. It wasn't enough to worry about and ruin the game play, but it was there. The biggest improvement I noticed was in Far Cry 3. Frame rates are more stable and smoother at higher settings. That's coming from the 1100T at 4.1 GHz and CPU-NB of 3GHz. I have the 8350 at 4.8GHz and 2.6GHz CPU-NB.
