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 54.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good There is little negative to say about this CPU. It isn't the fastest, but the price was great and after almost a year is this CPU still running smoothly without a problem. In fact, it paid out to invest into an 8-core CPU as more and more applications have become multi-threaded and keep putting the CPU to good use. The only downside I have found is that even when it's sold as a Black Edition does it not always over-clock well and it tends to enter into thermal throttling at about 60C, which isn't a really hot temperature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great buy Great processor well worth the money and stable kicks out heat tough so be sure to have a good cpu cooler not stock.

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
Date published: 2017-01-07
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 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.
