Hi, i'm thinking about doing streams on twitch and all that and wondering which of these cpus would be better. If your not familiar with streaming the cpus will need to run the game, a split timer and probably a second monitor just for music or something.I was thinking on these processors:

amd fx 8320 £108

amd fx 8350 £148

intel i5 4670k plus intel MB £229

thx in advance :)

Definaltly the 8350. they are gerat for streaming as they have 8 cores which is great for multitasking plus there cheap and overclock very well. i have one and i can tell you its a great cpu for games like bf4 that use all 8 cores. when a game uses all 8 cores the 8350 beats i7s

would you say it's worth the extra £40 over the fx 8320 that also has 8 cores ?

welll they are the same except the 8350 is clocked higher. you could overclock the 8320 but then you would have to by a cooler for about 30 and you would only really save 10 so i would go with the 8350 for the extra 40 and in the future you can overclock it to 4.5-5Ghz. It would also help you alot if you streaming with the higher clock the 8350 has

I use an FX-8320 and I'm more than happy. Streaming in 1080p and games are running super smooth, stream is super smooth etc. Plenty of power for streaming with it's 8 cores, plus it's also unlocked so you can easily overclock it to 4ghz simply by upping the multiplier to 20 and you got yourself an 8350 for cheap. You don't even have to mess with the voltages at such a mild overclock. Win/win.

I streamed some Anno 2070 the other day, and all 8 cores were being worked. Never seen that before, usually it's 4-6, but as always not a dent in performance. My old quad core would surely die if I tried that :p 


interesting, would i have to change my build for it though and would it be a big difference over my current cpu

cpu: fx 6300
MB: asrock 979 extreme 4
gpu radeon 7870 XT OC edition
psu 550w 80+ gold

It will have 2 extra cores to utilise over that FX 6300, so things may run a little smoother. I'd recommend a different motherboard to that one (unless you already have it); for a 970 board a M5A97 R2.0 or a GA-970A-UD3 - or for a more expensive (and better overclocking) 990FX board a M5A99X or a GA-990FXA-UD(3,5,7).

So do you have a 6300 at the moment? Is it not performing well enough?

I already have the extreme 4 yes and since the fx 6300 at 55C just gaming I think i'll need a better to have other things going since it should only go as high as 61C

An FX 83xx would only run hotter. What you need first is a better CPU cooler. Are you currently using the stock one?

no the hyper 212 evo like you according to your profile, i've got 5 case fans in my zalman z11 plus and i've made a tread on whether that's an average temp and they all replied yes: http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1969454/cooler...


Fair enough. I ran my 8320 @ 4.4 and it was cooler than that when gaming, but whatever. It differs on every CPU. As I said though, getting an FX 83xx series would only run hotter than that.

Get the 8350. more cores and better for multitasking. If it was for games, than the 4670k. Choose best answer :)

if you don't mind me asking what was your cpu temp when gaming and hows the fx 8320 working out for you

dude the 8350 is a clear win.....thats why it costs more. I prefer intel CPU's but for streaming the 8350 is better than the 4670k for that and only that.

actually i've seen some tests and for gaming and intel i5 4670k won some and lost some so they're actually pretty even all round

If you're going to stream and play games a lot...get the 8350...Not that hard. Pick as solution ;3

It performs absolutely fine. However it seems mine might have a weak/faulty IMC and I might have to return it. But I'll definitely get a replacement, nothing beats its price/performance.

Costing more does not make something better.

Of course not. My mistake. But the 8350 Is better for some stuff and the 4670k is.
