Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For the price this is a great CPU For the price this is a great CPU easily overclockable but buy a better cooler

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Questions & Answers

Will this processor bottleneck the GTX 770?

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.
Asked by: Bigmekkmatt
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. I never did anything fancy just let motherboard do for me. But as for bottleneck img ur gtx 770 ? No cant see that happening.

Does this come with retention bracks for the back of the motherboard?

Asked by: TQuickie
The stock cooler does not need this unless you are using a third party cooler where you should check the description to see.
