AMD FX 6300 or 6350 with stock cooling?

Last response: in CPUs

Looks like 6350 is on sale right now and is the same price as the 6300. I was thinking of getting the cheaper 6300, but now that they are the same price, I'm not sure.

I'm sure the 6350 runs hotter though, and I was hoping to save money and use stock cooling. Will the 6350 run too hot with stock cooling?

I'm not a big overclocker, btw, so that shouldn't affect much. And my motherboard is ASUS M5A97 R2.

(I just noticed I can save $20 at tigerdirect for orders over $100 today, so the 6300 *may* be cheaper for me once again, but I'd still love to know the answer to the question)

If they're the same price, the 6350 is a no brainer. You can always get a better cooler later. AMD guarantees their stock coolers.
