  1. why would you ever buy that chip? should have got a i5 3570k instead and would perform a lot better

    if you were sticking to the amd side of things, the fx 8320 would still be a big improvement

    for gaming, fx chips also lack performance due to weak threads.

    anyways, id try 4.5ghz to make up for the speed decrease

    I had a intel i5 CPU but i wanted a eightcore processor.
  3. its not a 8 core processor. its a 4 core that makes 8 threads. and cores dont mean anything in processing power
