  1. Basically the same the 8320 start with a higher base freq and can run multi threaded apps a little faster, the 8300 is supposed to be about 20-25% more power efficient (or so they say) I'd go 8320 if I had to chose

    thank for the reply..so if i change to 8320 for my mobo it will be no problem right?cuz my mobo now also support new fx6350 that got 125w tdp..so it should be no problem for me to use 8320..just wonder why it not in the mobo support cpu's list
  3. Best answer
    May want to check and see if any BIOS upgrades, but would think it should work, if it supports other 125 watt CPUs...does your mobo list the 8350? If ANY doubt, check with GB, there list may be out of date.
  4. FX Series all use the same Motherboards of AM3+

    So yeah. If it supports the 6350 it will support the 8320/8350.

    Only difference between these CPUs in the FX series is the TDP.
