  1. You can save the $ 40.00 and turboboost the 8320 to the same speed as the 8350, or you could go to Newegg and buy the 8350 now and not worry about using turboboost.
  2. Buy the cheaper one and OC.

    IMO, no. AMD CPUs are known to have great overclocking potential anyway, you can hit 4.8GHz with ease if you want.

    On the 8320?
  6. If money isn't an issue get the 8350 and you will hit 4.8ghz-5.0ghz with no problem. The 8320 will OC to the stocks speed of the 8350 some will do above that but it's the luck of the draw on that.

    Well is it worth an extra $49 and waiting till god damn amazon restocks and yea amazon is the only store ill buy from
  8. Yes it's worth it and is the reason I skipped it and went with the FX 8350. I wasn't about to make the same mistake I did when buying the FX 6100. Don't get me wrong the 8320 is a nice cpu but I want the most OC headroom possible and I got it. Even at stock speeds with the turbo it's a beast, I'm at 4.8 right now with OC. I run BF3 at Ultra settings with NO AA with advaptive vsync on and cards in SLI with three monitors at 6080x1080p. My cpu is never goes above 45% use, everything is put on my video cards.

    Well im not overclocking much and it will be first time overclocking so no going crazy
  10. Well if you get it, than run at stock speeds with turbo on and if later you want to OC you know you can.


    Good luck :)
  11. I just read in cpuboss or cpuworld website that someone oc 8320 to 8ghz
  12. There's no point in wasting $40-50 extra on 0.5 Ghz. of extra clock speed. You could easily Overclock the FX-8320 to 4.0 Ghz. and beyond.

    Not to mention, with the money you save, you could put that $40 to a CPU Cooler like the Cooler master Hyper 212 or a Corsair H55 Liquid Cooler. That will allow you to overclock your FX-8320 to a decent 4.0 Ghz and above.
