What more do you want ?
That an i5-3350p will perform much less than an i5-3470 and worse than a fx-6300 ?
He wants an intel cpu, in case you didn't know the i5 quad cores ivybridge beats the fx-6300 or even the fx-8xxx series in gaming.
And i am the fanboy...when you recommend always the same cpu, the fx-6300.
Also see your comments here : http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/fx-8350-core-i7-377...
It's seems someone is biased.
And that's all, show some proof that the fx-6300 is better than the i5.
And again, you do not have to overclock on every build - it doesn't hurt but it doesn't always help either.
If you were basing a recommendation for a cpu on that link it would have to be an AMD 8 core which performs better and is better value for money than the 3550p at the same price .
And while I agree with you that OCing is not "required" it is very much part of the value proposition for people building their own computer .
The good news in this thread though is django who thinks its not a good idea to recommend AMD when the OP asks for intel .
I feel sure this will mean he will never again insist that people wanting to build with AMD would be better off with an intel .
