Switched back to AMD after years of Intel chips. I was worried at first but very please now. Didnt even bother with the stock cooler instead put on a Cooler Master T4 single fan on Asus Crosshair Formula Z 990FX mobo. It ran about 38C at idle and about 10 degrees hotter gaming. Popped on another fan and used Asus OC utility and its sitting at 4.2ghz for now. Idles at 33C and after hours of gaming still hasnt passed 45C. Ran multiple BurnIn tests for processor max temp and it wont pass 51C. I can probably push a little higher before I need a liquid cooler. Im pretty sure with the right set up this could easily compete with the 8350. Value ratio was the deciding factor on buying this CPU.
Power hungry at 124W. AMD needs to dial it down.
