AMD FX 8350 Black Edition, Vishera, 8 Core, AM3+, Clock 4.0GHz, Turbo 4.2GHz, 8MB L3 Cache, 125W, CPU, Retail is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 51.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade very happy with this purchase has made a notable difference in my gaming performance from my AMD Pentium CPU

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathed new life OK, lets face it, any of AMD CPU's are lagging behind Intel right now. But if you happen to have a AM3 motherboard and an old cpu this is a repetitively cheap upgrade. It far cheaper than having to buy an new Mobo, DDR4 RAM plus intels cpu. OK that aside what does this do, well side by side comparison of a I5 6600 I cant notice much if any difference in performance in games I lay, BF1, FO4, Skyrim etc.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from amazing great item comes with fan witch i do think most people do not need so would make item cheaper with out fan

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great value for money. I got this processor for less than £140, which is absolutely great value for money. The shipping was very fast so I got everything up and running no problem. Thank you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cpu Great cpu well worth the money, runs latest games fine on ultra settings! Going to over lock mine to get the fps up a bit
Date published: 2016-09-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the budget minded. Having owned this processor now for 3 months i can honestly say its worth it. Often comparisons are drawn with Intel's offerings and there clearly is no comparison. Yes, Intel's perform better, but at a higher purchase cost, usually with more expensive motherboards too. At the expensive of about 5-10 fps in CPU heavy titles you are saving money going AMD for a more budget build. The 8350 is partnered with a R9 390 GPU and is a strong performer. Its able to run GTA V (CPU heavy aswell as GPU) at 1440p with many settings on high at a solid 60 fps with only rare dips to about 55 on some stunt challenges in online play. Elite dangerous 1440p with everything on maximum is a solid 60 fps+, Rocket League is a walk in the park at any setting and i've had no trouble with Forza 6 apex at 1440p and many strategy games i play is no trouble at all running as intended. The 8350 may not be 'future proof' but there are motherboards now incorporation M.2 sockets 20gbits, Type C USB and other mod cons that will see you well into ZEN release and beyond. Oh and yes they do overclock well. I have mine running at 4.72ghz stable @1.46v, however there does appear to be a large drop off in overclock ability past this point, at least on my chip even with a h100i v2 water cooler keeping it cool, the chip just will not run stable, but i am no expert. Definitely consider this CPU for your budget build if you're not will to drop hundreds more on an Intel build.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great but needs serious cooling Purchased about a month ago. Had a couple of headaches with cooling. The stock cooler is useless, do not use. I purchased a cool master hyper 212 evo cpu cooler and added an additional fan. Worked a treat, working at keeping the chip running smoothly.
Date published: 2016-08-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic performance for a good price At stock clock speeds (4.00GHz) with the included cooler, this CPU runs pretty warm, reaching 75-80 degrees under full load and idling around 40. I used this as a benchmark for the water cooling loop I'm using now (2x140mm fans at 540.6m^3/h, 600l/h), which at stock speeds of 4.00GHz idles at 29-32 degrees and reaches 48 degrees at 100% load, using 122.36W. Overclocked to 4.8GHz, at 100% load the CPU reaches 63 degrees, using 192.23W (stats measured by lm_sensors). Running idle-ish (running two game servers, ~5% load) both overclocked and at stock clock speeds use between 35 and 65W of power. Now, all of this to say I'm unsure as to whether this (IMO) fantastic performance is down to the CPU or the water cooler, since to both I am rather new, but to all the people discouraging my use of AMD CPUs I have to say it's as powerful, if not more so, than my OC'd 4790K and on a water cooler has no heat issues whatsoever. Something I have to mention though is the cost. Long-term, the difference of 60-100W between this CPU and the Intel equivalent means your utility bill is going up and after 3-4 years you'll have spent the same as if you'd gone Intel. In the short-term, performance/price for this CPU is brilliant! And if your cooler's up to the challenge, come 3-4 years later and you'll quite probably be upgrading before Intel becomes a cheaper option. Regarding tasks, I'm using this CPU as a render node to help my workstation through difficult times. It's running Debian Jessie and hosting a few servers on its days off, as well as a DLNA media server. It spends a good 7-8 hours a day under 100% load and the rest of the time under 2-20% load. The average power draw for any given 24 hour period is 95W, plusminus 5%, equating to roughly 832kWh a year, or £143.14. My aforementioned Intel machine runs at an average of 75W, so extrapolating for a 24 hour timeframe gives 670kWh a year, or £113. That gives delta£ of 30.14. The 4790K is £314.99 and the 8350 is £134.20, which means after 6 (5.998) years the cost of the two CPUs plus the running costs for average 24/7 operation is exactly equal. Planning on keeping the CPU less than 6 years? Go for this AMD.
