I am buying a new processor soon the fx8350 would a corsair hydro series h60 be a good cooler for the fx8350?

Yes, I am using a H60 with my FX-6200. Really good cooler. Getting some better thermal paste will help bring the temp down a bit more too.

CPU temp is usually

- 25-30°C Idle/Normal usage
- 60-70°C Under Stress/Full Load

From experience, Artic Silver 5 and Arctic Cooling MX-4 are both pretty good.

You just wipe it off. You don't have to use different paste, it will still be cool enough. It would just help bring the temperature down further.
