Very Good
Below Average
Rating: 9.6/10

Review Date: 03/22/15
Cons: None

Pros: Good product low price
Perform low price

Review Date: 01/25/15
Cons: I've done some research and it may not be the wisest to use this CPU with high end cards like the 970 and 980. If you're wanting to go with an AMD build, maybe look into the 8370, or 9000 series

Pros: Got on sale for $150. Along with the AMD game. Works well with lower end cards like the 3gb GTX 660. It's been reported to me that in Garry's mod, it may frame drop  a little if too many objects are placed on the screen. But I don't know for sure from a computer I built for someone.
Overall if you can get this CPU on sale, it is a good bang for the buck. If you're looking for a gaming build under $1000 then I see no problem getting this one. I also found that there are some patches for the bulldozer series, to install that if you want a bit more performance from the CPU

Review Date: 01/11/15
Cons: None so far other than it is a bit power hungry at 125W.

Pros: True Octa-core.
Huge improvement from my old AMD Phenom II X2. Runs all of my games perfectly bundled with a Gigabyte HD 7770.

Review Date: 12/28/14
Cons: Not very good IPC, hot.

Pros: Good processor for the money
I bought this to build a computer for my brother, generally I would have recommended Intel but he needed it to do a lot of rendering so AMD was the best value for our needs. I bought the Cooler Master 212 Evo and the temperatures seem to be reasonable. I haven't tried overclocking yet as we are waiting to get the new ram. Till then I just pulled out one of the DIMMS from my PC so that he can use the computer.

Review Date: 09/10/14
Cons: single threaded lacks a bit unless high oc

Pros: Cheaper than intel for same performance if OC
Owned for a year now. Mine runs at 4.816 Ghz on an Asus Crosshair V Formula-Z and Corsair H110.Under load 44c / idle 31cUsed in gaming rig with AMD 7970. I prefer to run a pure AMD rig in this case.Very pleased all round, but I got a good chip and if you expect my results (I can post at 5 Ghz) you need the Crosshair V and liquid cooling. Compares nicely with stock i5 -perhaps a bit better, but I paid less and put the money into a good board and cooler.

Review Date: 08/19/14
Cons: None so far, rock solid.

Pros: Great price, amazing performance.
Bought this in a bundle with a M5A97 ASUS motherboard. They have both worked extremely well since building it up and everything has been rock solid despite my best attempts at overclocking the whole thing multiple times. Its easy to ramp this processor up to 4. ghz and runs really stable at 3.7 which is where I left mine. Simple liquid cooling kit on the processor, nothing fancy. Buying up to the 8350 isn't worth it, stick with this 8320, you won't be disappointed!

Review Date: 08/17/14
Cons: high heat output, recommend after market cooler

Pros: good for the price, fairly powerful for even enthusiast gaming
overclocks very stable to 3.8ghz, has 8 true cores but sadly runs hot for my liking I get 38C stable with an h110 from corsair. other than the heat it is a pretty good CPU for the price.

Review Date: 07/10/14
Cons: Single thread performance is lacking compared to an Intel.Energy sucker at 125w.Stock cooler is horrible, loud and males the cpu run hot.

Pros: Price.Speed for multi threaded apps.Socket compatibility.Real world performance has been wonderful.Easy to over clock with.Keeps cool with a decent after market HSF.
You cant go wrong for the price of this CPU. At $150 you are getting a 8 core cpu that while falls behind Intel in single thread apps when games start being programmed with more cores in mind this CPU should shine. This CPU has amazing over clocking potential and can stay pretty cool if you can feed it right. Overall I'm happy with the cpu and what money I saved over going Intel I put into a better GPU.

Review Date: 07/07/14
Cons: None

Pros: Fast, cheap, 8 cores
Very fast CPU for the price. This was for a build under 800$ and I'm very satisfied!

Review Date: 07/02/14
Cons: -Stock Fan is trash

Pros: -Performs really well-Runs games at High
The 8320 is the little brother to the 8350. It performs quite well, and will work with GPUs ranging from 250-350.

Review Date: 04/30/14
Cons: not powerfull as the 8350

Pros: 8core, Speed, Unlocked, Overclock capability
I cranked it up to 4.7ghz with watercooler and a lots of tuning. And it does the job pretty well. I have no regret for this cpu. Highly recommend. If you guys are looking for a cheap option for a beast thats the cpu to go with!!

Review Date: 04/05/14
Cons: hard to keep cool when overclocked

Pros: Best value chip out right now
Overclocked to 4.0ghz without voltage adjustment... my corsair h60 can't handle much more than that.Get an h100i or h110 or a huge air cooler if you're gonna OC. Great multitasking and gaming performance

Review Date: 03/24/14
Cons: stock heatcooler sucks!

Pros: does the job!cheap!works well on my M5A99X EVO 2.0 motherboard!
k, so i bought this bad boy a year ago when i built my (first) gaming PC. i always noticed it was a bit loud and 6 months later it would shut up in the middle of a dota match. i'm not experienced at all with computers so i had no clue what it was from. it kept happening so i dusted out my computer cause i figured it was overheating. which it was. the cpu would get to insane temps (+70C!) so i took it out and checked out the cooling paste. it was melted to the cpu and heatsink and i had to pry it to get it off. anyways, the stock heatsink it comes with is very loud. it's pretty bad for heat management when i'm overclocking it. other than that! get yourself a new fan!

Review Date: 03/18/14
Cons: Produces a lot of heat. Need a good motherboard and cooler to overclock it.

Pros: Very hard to beat this CPU for the price. You get a lot of bang for your buck after a pricematch. I'm a loyal fan of AMD. Intel is overpriced.
Can be easily OC'ed to 8350 speed without any additional volts. Probably the best price vs performance ratio CPU on the market right now.

Review Date: 03/08/14
Cons: Toss the stock heatsink

Pros: Fast, cheap (specially if price matched), runs cool, 8 cores
Running at 26C with Noctua NH-U14S and dual fans, not an AMD fanboy but have always used their CPU's, got an Intel 4670k to see what all the hoopla is about and will say AMD is underrated. Can OC an AMD 8320 to 8350 spec easily

Review Date: 03/03/14
Cons: 125 W de consommation

Pros: pas cher, bon raport qualité-prix, 8 coeur
très bon processeur niveau qualité-prix. Acheté pour 150$, j'en ai eu pour mon argent. Très bon pour les jeux, avec une gtx 760 j'ai 60 fps en moyenne sur bf4. Le seul point faible que je pourrais dire est sa consommation 125 w c'est plus si on comparare à un Intel. Si la consommation electrique n'est pas un problème allez-y les yeux fermé, vous ne serez pas décu.

Review Date: 01/24/14
Cons: Horrible stock cooler.

Pros: 8 Cores, Best Price/Performance ratio available.
I was aiming to build a sub 700$ PC since my old Dell XPS 420 decided to die on me in November. However, I still wanted a decent video card, an SSD, a decent motherboard with room for future improvement and a gaming friendly CPU.Now, I'm a senior game developper myself, and let me tell you that modern game engine architectures love multiple cores. I know this CPU is on a single-core basis way inferior to the mid range intel i5 and high-end i7. However, if you're on a budget, paying for CPU is not the best way to go. Save that 100$ you saved on the CPU for a better GPU.The thing is, you don't need 8 cores to run Google Chrome. But you don't need a super fast single core CPU either for that. I find that this CPU offers exactly what you pay for : No embedded GPU, few tricks, etcs...I bought this in a combo with the Asus M5A99X Evo Rev 2.0 motherboard on cybermonday for 259.99$ with a 20$ MIR (which I'm still waiting for) and it's really a lot of performance for the price tag. My only problem with the processor itself is the heat sink it ships with. That thing is nowhere near adequate if you even remotely enjoy silence. It's super noisy and the CPU is super hot even when idle (41-45 degrees idle). I have a colleague who bought a FX-8350 and complained about the same issue, and we both installed a Cooler Master 212 Evo heatsink, so be prepared to shell out a 30$ extra for silence.

Review Date: 01/12/14
Cons: not as strong on a single thread as a similar priced i5

Pros: Speedy, great multitasker, price.
Great bang for the buck. Performs better than a similarly priced intel chip on multithread applications. Not as strong on a single thread as some intel chips.

Review Date: 01/06/14
Cons: none

Pros: FastStablesDoes the job
I bought this as an upgrade from Athlon II x2 240 (2x 2.8ghz). It was a big leap and I definitely feel the computer is far superior to the set up I had before. I paired it with an ASUS M5A97 R2.0 with no problem.

Review Date: 01/01/14
Cons: hot.Crummy stock heatsink

Pros: Great overclockerLow cost.8 cores
So I got this to move up from my I3 3240 witch was the worst choice I have ever mad buying that. But the AMD 8320 is just what i needed works wonders with my GTX 660.

Review Date: 08/12/13
Cons: None

Pros: Great multithread performanceCheap price
Bought to replace Phenom II 955.Used with a ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 with 3029 bios without any issues.Can overclock to 4.2ghz at 1.4v. Remember to disable LLC in bios.

Review Date: 08/03/13
Cons: none

Pros: fast Just really fast. 8 cores
Well what do I got to say. i am able to game no problem also using fraps running and recording ijn backround with minimal loss of fps. Ive notice in all my games ioive gained at least 10 fps from my previous processor amd 1100t. There is no way id turn back from this cpu. I give thumbs up to anybody who would consider this cpu.

Review Date: 06/12/13
Cons: - None at the moment.

Pros: - Cheap- Easy to overclock beyond 4.0 GHz.- Great for FoldingrHome, for the price.- Good thermals compared to a Phenom II x6 1090T.
For the price, this processor has been a very nice upgrade from a Phenom II x6 1090T. Now, I have no comment on the included OEM fan as I am using a 3rd party version.Reference set up:Mobo: ASUS M5A99X Evo (Rev.1.0)RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB at 1866VID: ASUS GTX 660PSU: Seasonic M12II 620W

Review Date: 05/22/13
Cons: None so far.

Pros: Excellent value for an 8-core CPU, excellent price/performance ratio.Overclocking is hit and miss for some people, but I seem to have gotten a good chip.
The Vishera FX line of cpus are excellent, most modern games are more video card dependent than CPU intensive so you can buy a slightly weaker CPU and with the money saved buy a stronger graphics card.My own FX-8320 is excellent, with water-cooling it can hit a rock solid 5.0ghz. Also, this chip pumps out tons of heat with the heavy overclock. It will be a nice space heater come the winter.This is a secondary PC and is not currently hooked up to my window mounted radbox. That may change with the summer heat fast approaching.

Review Date: 05/20/13
Cons: small heat sink

Pros: fast and cheap
i been using this processor for 3 weeks now and so far i cant say anything bad aside from the small cpu heat sink. its an octo core for a cheap price you cant go wrong.
