Rated 5 out of 5 by Endo Made to order
I brought the 8350 with the intention of running multiple programs atonce, especially when gaming. I like to check speeds temps loads fps an so forth so requirements needed something heavy.
The 8350 delivered those requirements. I play and work with no problems. Just waiting to overclock. Only niggle is the cpu fan. It's a bit on the noisy side. But if you plan to over clock, an after market cooler will be needed and appreciated in its noise output...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Little92 Stick with 8320 if your only going to 4.4ghz.
Great chip, recommend it if your water-cooling.
I'd recommend full tower case with fan's if your getting the pre-made water loop's.

Rated 4 out of 5 by FamilyTechGuy Perfect for work, not as good at play, but is set to be better supported in the future
The virtualisation features make this CPU a necessity for people running virtual machines but the 8 cores also make it great for multi-threaded work such as computer aided design (CAD). With games providing better multi-thread support and the newly released consoles having a custom version of this processor in it means the longevity of the processor in gaming is better than a similarly priced Intel one despite Intel having a performance advantage at the moment.
The processor is very responsive during normal use in Windows 8.1, you wouldn't notice a difference between this and an Intel i5, but it manages to do better than my old 4 core Intel processor when there are more windows open which is great.
Good features, very good price and a promising future with multi-threaded support getting better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nervox12 Bang for your Buck!
I have bought this CPU because it was just as good as an i5 3570k - 4670k, but this is bang for your buck and it goes really well with an AMD R9 270X Toxic edition and a Zalman Z5 case. The stock cooling is good if you don't OC it to

An amazing processor very very fast. The only thing i would suggest is buying a better cpu cooler, as the one it comes with is painfully loud. Playing BF4 was awful, i could hear the fan through my headset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cuffy Excellent!
This product is brilliant for gaming. No frame rate issues at all, PC boots up extremely fast. I would recommend this product to anybody. And I'd just like to say how excellent the service at scan.co.uk was as well. Order got here next day and was informed every step ofthe way where it was. Brilliant.
