Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 20 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by AMD FX 8320 Black Edition and Gigabyte GA-F2A88X-D3H As expected of a Gigabyte motherboard this installed easily and was up and running within hours, it is fast, rock solid and easy to set up. The AMD processor fitted easily into the slot, and the whole process was an absolute dream to set up, as yet I haven't tried any overclocking because for my purposes this runs fast enough. The main improvement being that from switch on to reading my email is less than a minute including sign in. 10 November 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good CPU I'm normally and Intel boy but built this AMD machine for little one. And have to say the CPU u good does what's it's asked. 29 July 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great processor Plumped for this over the 8350 as I was going to overclock it. It's stable at 4.2GHz so it's already beating the stock 8350 at a better price. AMD processors obviously can't compare against Intel but this is a great processor for the money with great overclocking potential. 01 April 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Beautiful and value for money It comes with 3 Red LED fans and 2 other fans and do their job well. The LED fans lights up the case to make it look beautiful and the side window is also amazing. The case is sturdy and the side panels open easily. Would recommend for value for money and good looks 17 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by A CPU It's a CPU. It's central and it processes and is stored in a nice unit. It has all the gigahertz you need to do lots of different things at once. 11 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by For the price this is a great CPU For the price this is a great CPU easily overclockable but buy a better cooler 29 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by This is a great processor to run multithread applications. I would highly recommend this processor only if you will be able to use its full potential launching applications that can use 8 threads. If you are looking for a cheap processor for games I would rather get FX 6350. The 8core processors from AMD come with a bit better cooling than 6 or 4 cores do but it is very loud and I mean really this fan can work with 5500RPM it sounds like a turbine or something. For this processor I would also recommend buying a case with extra fans to cool this processor. With my CiT Vantage case (it has 4 fans) even under heavy load this processor stays quite cool as it has around 53 degrees Celsius compared to an Intel i7 2nd gen 80 doing the same stuff that is cool. Although passmark shows that FX8320 and i7-2600 are very close the results in work show that the AMD processor is faster and I can really feel it. But like I said for games don’t buy it, it will only be louder and use more energy but you will not get more fps. 19 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Product is amazing So far this CPU hasn't let me down only thing to recommend is buy an aftermarket cooler if you are wanting to use the overclock feature as it gets quite hot wit stock cooler overall an amzing CPU 17 August 2014

I saw the clock speed can be increased if bottlenecking will occur and if this is necessary then will the stock cooler be insufficient for cooling? If this processor will not run the graphics card well then I was going to go for the AMD FX 8350.

Answer: 
This CPU will not bottleneck a GTX 770 or even a 780ti for that matter and is a great gaming CPU. If you are going to overclock it though I would highly recommend replacing the stock cooler.

If I was u I would put a water cooler on it then clock in a little.
It loves to be overclocked as long as u cool it down enough.

Answer: 
No, it won't bottleneck the GTX 770 - you don't even need to overclock as it's a good processor.

Your stock cooler is fine but it's recommended that you upgrade to an aftermarket cooler IF you are going to overclock.

Answer: 
The stock cooler, to be honest, is pants, but this isn't an AMD-specific problem as Intel's stock coolers are the same.

My FX 8320 will happily overclock to over 4GHz with an aftermarket cooler, but to be honest I run mine at 3.6GHz as I don't need the extra speed.

If you're planning at gaming up to around 1080P/1200P with a decent graphics card, you're not going to realistically see any difference between this and an FX 8350.

You should only be looking for more power (i.e., Intel i7) if you're planning to play around with two high-level graphics cards for gaming at 1440P/1600P or much higher 4K (2160P) settings.

To be honest, I've yet to find a game that really challenges my FX 8320 and I'm on a two-generations-old HD 6950. Then again, I'm only gaming at 1200P max.

Hope this helps :)

Answer: 
FX 8350 is the same chip as the 8320 - just clocked higher. I've heard it's worth getting the 8320 and overclocking rather then paying more for the 8350.

Either way, both CPUs will be fine with the GTX 770.

In Summary: Nothing will bottleneck.
