Well even 5 Ghz watercooled is a big task for the i7 3770k, if you care about benchmarks then in this world of Intel Optimized Everything go with the i7 3770k. If you do not mind being a few % slower not that you will notice than the 8350 is amazing for its price.

Since you asked if the 8350 will be better; definitely not. Will it suit your needs? As long as you don't care for winning every benchmark out there (or in other words if you are fine with losing against the same system with an I7); yes it will.
