AMD FX-8350 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ Eight-Core Desktop Processor
Very Good
Below Average
Rating: 9.54/10

Review Date: 04/18/15
Cons: none for the moment

Pros: better perfomance in game for the price compare to intel one
Average CPU Mark score is 8983, he hit about 9250 ~ on amd970 chipset system board

Review Date: 03/21/15
Cons: None

Pros: Very Fast Great Price Quality CPU
Bought this for Gaming and love it... Would highly recommend the 8350..

Review Date: 01/06/15
Cons: None as of yet

Pros: Runs greatEasy installationPrice is right - definitely not the fastest CPU on the block, but gets the job done even for gaming
I know some people have talked about this chip running hot, but even using the stock cooler I've had no issues whatsoever. Even under load I'm only in the 55 - 58 degree range and when idling I'm well under 30 degrees. I'll continue to monitor and may upgrade my fan if necessary, but no complaints right now.On another note, NCIX was great - shipping was fantastic and customer service was spot on. Thank you!

Review Date: 12/05/14
Cons: -gaming slightly under an i5

Pros: -cheap multi-tasking cpu-good overclock
Way cheaper alternative, with prices under an intel i5 and multi-tasking performance close to the i7's twice it's price. Recommend for budget high end rigs. If only gaming, grab an i5 instead.Fact: While i7s use 4 cores and 8 caches, the AMD uses 8 cores and 4 caches.

Review Date: 11/24/14
Cons: not as fast as intels top end

Pros: Great multitasker. Great overclocker. Put water cooling on it on a decent board and OC it like crazy.
Still a solid performer this chip gives great multithreaded performance. An intel chip will be better on a single thread, but don't overlook this chip, especially as the newer ones seem to be better binned.

Review Date: 11/17/14
Cons: Fan is loud sometimes

Pros: FastOverclocking well
Work very well with MSI 970 gaming Motherboard and SLI cards.

Review Date: 11/06/14
Cons: non

Pros: Awesome super fast
Bought this for a non-budget build. Super fast & stable. Using stock cooler which is very quiet.

Review Date: 10/25/14
Cons: -she is a hot one. Scope out something better to cool it.

Pros: -AMD-8 Cores-system love it.
Overall between my gaming and work and my kids on it over the last little bit here I have noticed a great deal of improvement in my system without doing to much. Benchmark scores and game now run at higher FPS because of it in my rig. would buy another and would suggest it to anyone that wants a reliable build on a budget.

Review Date: 10/08/14
Cons: price higher than it was a yr ago

Pros: Fast Cpu for price
Overclocks well put it to 4.5ghz without any tinkering

Review Date: 10/03/14
Cons: Not great single threaded performance (compared to the Intels)

Pros: Great for multi-program use (media programs, and such)Great for livestreaming at high presets.Good value
Overall this CPU has been awesome. Have been able to OC it to 4.5ghz with a after market cooler Hyper 212 and the CPU staying relatively cool under high loads. I was quite impressed.

Review Date: 09/28/14
Cons: Not the fastest CPU (Intel I7 a slightly faster but much more expensive)

Pros: One of the best CPU for a standard (non gaming) machineMuch cheaper than Intel equivalent, more core for business multi-threading environment. Very good CPU overall. Best money/performance ratio
Best money/performance ratio

Review Date: 06/28/14
Cons: Runs warm.

Pros: Great chip out of the box. Overclocks well and benches well. I used the stock heat sink fan on the back of my mobo to keep my socket temps down while overclocking.
Great chip for its value. I would recommend this chip to anyone on a budget that doesn't want to pay insane Intel prices.

Review Date: 06/08/14
Cons: None

Pros: 8 Cores - Great Value - Very Fast
The AMD FX-8350 is a great processor for gaming and a little bit of video editing. With it's 8 cores, this CPU should last you for quite some time being very future proof, and while this CPU isn't as fast as a Intel Core i5 or i7, it still is a great value. The 8350 is clocked at 4.0GHZ and is a very good overclocker, giving you even more performance for your dollar.

Review Date: 04/15/14
Cons: Runs hot, high power consumption, stock fan barely adequate

Pros: Fast, multicore, cheaper than Intel, overclocks fairly well
New build for basic video editing and general desktop work. No real need for a high-powered build but this machine should at least be useful for a few years. Replaced the stock cooler since it was barely adequate even at stock speeds. With a single-fan CM212evo temperatures are within a more reasonable range. OCCT linpack stable for a few hours without any issues. Unfortunately, it's power consumption is nowhere near Intel. However, with clocks set to auto and all APM turned on, it does seem to consume a reasonable amount of power given that it needs to power 8-cores.

Pros: A+++++++++++++++
Good Choice, i love this productA+++++++++++

Review Date: 03/10/14
Cons: included loud 4-heatpipe HSF is begging to be replaced with any aftermarket one you find here on NCIX

Pros: 8 *real* threads of blistering integer performance, awesome performance, unbelievable price for that performance
I held off buying this AMD Piledriver processor waiting for a price drop  but that didn't happen, for the good reason that it truly holds up so well against the price-point competition. What forced me to upgrade to this replacement was when I accidentally *baked* my AM3 processor to its heatsink. *ahem*It shocks me that all the attention on the top FX-series CPUs is how they compare to top Core i7 platforms that cost at least 5 (five) times as much, and on windoze benchmarks. The reason OS is an issue is because those apps are typically compiled with an Intel compiler or optimizations. Software vendors think they need to do this is because the majority of units out there are from Intel. That excludes the brilliant capabilities the differently architected AMD Bulldozer/Piledriver/Steamroller/Excavator can do. Agnostic configured Linux compilers let AMD processors shine like they should, and if they are optimized for one of the latest FX-series, yield even more performance-upto 50%. I bring all this into my review because my usage intentions with my FX-8350 are some Piledriver-tuned compilations on Linux OSes (no extra code fluff with special Intel paths.) Custom tuned Firefox or OpenGL 3D games, anyone?Anyway for those here that still need to run windoze (me, included) the fairest overall comparison benchmark I could find that isolates CPU performance is Passmark's. Looking at current NCIX price/performance comparisons:The AMD FX-8350 is ~29% faster than an i5-4570, even though the latter costs ~$15 more. (AM3+/LGA1150 mainboard cost differences considered.)Next closest on the other side is the i3-4340, which is ~$15 less including motherboards' differences. The AMD FX-8350 is ~78% faster, with the gap widening ever more as expected.Not bad outperformance running Intel-optimized apps for similar costs... Note, these Intel offerings don't have the ease of fully unlocked multipliers as the AMD FX-series do.Any heatsink fan you find here, even $15 or less, will do a better job cooling these processors than the included OEM, and same goes with the more elaborate Intel ones, too. I'd recommend that so you can play with all that overclocking headroom without the expense of your ears. For those that heavily consider temperatures as the king of metrics, remember: temps are only a numbers, stability is the real goal.Over the past couple years, I have yet to find any AMD driver specific issues so far with my 990FX chipset with either Athlon II or FX processors, my Radeon HD7970, on Windows 7 Ultimate.

Review Date: 03/04/14
Cons: -runs rather hot when overclocked and draws a lot of power

Pros: -works great for the price-overclocks very well. got 5.1ghz with a d14
Great CPU but the power draw can be much lower on this one

Review Date: 02/25/14
Cons: Power hungry so needs a good heatsink.

Pros: Good fit for servers. Overclocks really well.
i use 2 of these in servers, and this CPU is great for the massively multi-threaded environment that a server presents, plus gcc has optimizations for the Piledriver and Bulldozer architectures.During testing i was able to overclock both the samples i have to 4.5GHZ by using a 22.5X multiplier, without turning up the voltage. Kept NB and HT to 2400MHz. Didn't test beyond that. You do want a good thermal solution for this CPU, altho during normal server duty it's pretty close to idling and so doesn't draw much power.

Review Date: 02/01/14
Cons: -Not all cores are put to use while gaming.

Pros: -Great stock clock.-It's 8 cores provide amazing multi-tasking.-Runs cool with it's stock cooler.-Overclocking is great on the processor.-Great for gaming.-16 MBs of cache.
I bought this processor for my gaming PC, it works great! it has a good stock thermal solution (WAY better than intel's stock cooler) and it hold great clocks. It has headroom for MASSIVE overclocks if you use the right thermal solution. I found that the best overclock using the stock cooler is 4.25 GHz. It's a great processor, especially if you don't want to mess around with liquid cooling. but it's even better with liquid cooling. with a closed loop it can run 5.1 GHz at an alright temperature.

Review Date: 10/28/13
Cons: runs a little warm44 Celsius under medium load

Pros: nice running cpu amazingly stable
the difference of 20 dollars between this cpu and the predecessor 8150 is well worth it in future benchmark 11 scores jumped from 6700 to 7204 scoreati 7850 vid card and 8 gb ram and corsair 800 psu

Review Date: 10/24/13
Cons: Still not on par with some intel

Pros: Great bang for the bucks
Doing work in a cheap video editing / 3D rig!

Review Date: 10/15/13
Cons: Heat

Pros: InexpensiveFast
It's and AMD, so it gets pretty hot. With my Antec Kuhler 620, I'm able to keep it at 4.3GHz r 1.4v r 64C Prime95 load for 10 hours. Anymore juice, and it'll just shoot up in temps. It's a great performer at this price though, very good bang for buck. Stock HSF will do as well, if you're not into overclocking much. It's actually not too loud.

Review Date: 10/05/13
Cons: stock heat sink fan is a little noisy.

Pros: fast, cheap
all i can say is WOW! on my previous pc i had a pentium dual core e5300 s 2.6 GHz and after moving to this everything just seems way more responsive and faster. even in windows it feels faster. the stock heat sink works decent but it is a bit loud. i got a coolermaster 212 evo to replace it and cpu idle temp is 31 degrees Celsius with it.

Review Date: 09/30/13
Cons: Runs Hot but it's a AMD

Pros: Blazing FastStableOutstanding performance
This CPU is great it's very stable and I've pushed it to it's limits and brought it back down it didn't crack under the pressure. It runs hot but it's not a AMD if it doesn't... I love this CPU and highly recommend this to any hardcore gamer.
