AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easily o.c. to 4.4 ghz. Barely breaks 40c on full load. Idles at 29-31 with zalman cooler. Surpassed intel i7 3770 on all benchmarks.

Cons: Nothing to do with the CPU. Bios on my formula v has been a red headed step child since I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a Zambezi and wow. Don't think you're saving money getting the other. Night and day differences. Still have to say intel has the upper hand these days though.

5 out of 5 eggs awesome cooler 09/04/2012

This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9900MAX-B 135mm Long life bearing CPU Cooler Blue LED

Pros: Keeps my fx-8150 around 34c even over clocked to 4.5ghz. Remember to use a decent thermal paste. Makes a difference.

Cons: Big. Awkward install.

Other Thoughts: Bang for the buck, this is your best shot at keeping the CPU cool. Make sure your cas can handle it though. Full tower case.

AMD FX-4100 Zambezi Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD4100WMGUSBX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast and Cheap!
I've got this thing O.C. to around 4.6 Ghz on an Asus formula V... with a Zalman 9900 and it barely ever breaks 34 c

Cons: It was a "fill in the blank" that needed polishing. I had Voltage issues when I started turning up the rates per core. Worked with the ASUS tools instead of doing it the old way and it worked perfect.

Other Thoughts: I was building on a 900 dollar budget and this was the last thing I added so it was a cheapo move. After I got everything tweaked right this thing did everybit and more than I expected. I run everything full res, no lag, and it runs my autocad and photoshop suites like a CHAMP. For the money you can't beat it. Windows isn't optimized for too many cores yet anyway and if you're building a hack'n'tosh you know that intel is where you need to be for that anyways.
