My desktop, a Frankenstein rig built over a couple years
Nice build. Fan of AMD CPUs.
Great setup. Same with Smk54, love seeing a good AMD build.
I'm looking to build a rig with the same CPU. I see you have a liquid cooler on it, did you OC it? I'm not sure if I should buy one unless I plan on OC it, maybe in the future.
I have played with OCing, I have a ton of head room. I was easily able to get the clock to 4.5ghz without trying. I generally don't run an OC because I simply don't need it (yet). The fx 8350 is getting quite dated though, I would personally look at newer cpus, but AMD isn't giving many options for us. And the fx 8370 seems to just be an 8350 but just with a slightly increased clock.
I hope to see new AMD enthusiast CPUs soon and I honestly do recommend waiting if you can. however if that isn't an option, the 8350 will serve you quite well.
