AMD 8350 or 8150

Hello all tom's hardware reader! I was wondering if i should get the AMD 8350 for $200 or the AMD 8150 with closed loop water cooling (AMD water cooling) for $210. I am using my comp. for gaming and wanted to know which one is you think i should get! Thanks for reading and any comments will be appreciated! (Except AMD vs Intel fanboys fighting over company names, products, etc.)

  1. 8350 is more powerful.

    If money is an issue I'd go for 8320 with a good cooler.

    You can find 8350's for $180 out there, I'm not sure where the 8150's are priced now but I'd think the performance difference between the two would be worth $20 or so. As for cooling, you should be alright on a $35 Cooler Master 212 EVO, unless you have your heart set on a water cooling rig.

  3. I concur with Finneous. Piledriver is better than Bulldozer.

    Like he said, an 8320 has the same specs (L2, L3, IMC Speed) as an 8350, just a lower clock, meaning you could buy that and get a nice cooler for it, then overclock it.
