Description

I started to build up an AMD build slowly from scrap and changing everything from my old computer to this. I love it, recently bought the R9 380 because my old 7850 was a little slow but I loved that card too. I like to be in the red side of the world.

I love AMD too. My current rigs are all working top notch without concerns. Your love needs to be contagious. Benchmarks are the killer here. The real benchmark is how well it plays your games on your setup.

WHy don't you put the cooler to blow fan towards the back of the case instead of onto your gpu?

in my opinion that was a bad choice, GPU,CPU and how much ram for a crapy cpu. I did have a 8320 @4.4GHZ with r9 380 and it still bottelnecked like craze for gta v was the wost. I just stared building my new 5820k and 1080 cant wait!

Why not? I'm far from being an AMD fanboy but it's like: why is your name Lividxphos? Because it's your choice. Simple as that ;)

well, im just saying. for $100 from intel you can get the same performance as a $200- $250 cpu from amd, with pretty much no heat output

Maybe he prefers AMD... I dunno, I would have also chosen an Intel CPU

So... AMD offers a $200-$250 CPU? This FX-8350 is (was?) a flagship 8-core processor and has always been in the $150 department.

The AMD/Intel beef has been real since day 1. For gaming, where games are developed for single-core performance, most intel CPUs will beat out a competing AMD CPU. The problem here is that unless all you do is game (or media), intel just isn't worth the premium. The performance differences everywhere else are NOT significant enough to justify the more expensive CPU, more expensive MoBo with the appropriate sockets, the more expensive RAM to "take advantage" of the specialized i-something capabilities, and be a part of the i-Crew. I have a laptop with an i7 and it crushes, but my desktops will remain AMD because I prefer the better overall performance and significantly lower price :: performance ratio.

pretty much no price difference and the intel one looks better still, much less heat output and the fx 6300 is 30% slower. and with gaming benchmarks the fx 9590 and the i3 6100 only has a difference of about 1%

Point taken-- but "gaming benchmarks" shouldn't be the only consideration when buying a PC, unless all you would possibly do with it is game.

AMD suits me fine as the cheaper option for more cores.

And so the battle of Red vs Blue rages on

Depends on what he's doing, yeah if we wanted an HTPC, or something to play Minesweeper on ultra settings, the i3 6100 is the perfect CPU, way better than anything AMD has to offer, but maybe he's gaming, and today's games, a 2 core-4 thread CPU just doesn't cut it, it bottlenecks many top line GPU's even some mid range GPU's where the 8 core-8 thread CPU wouldn't bottleneck all the way up to a GTX 1070, and with overclocking capabilities it's just an all around better workhorse for the heavy user.

hehe base clock is 4.0 GHz and you downclocked it to 1.4 GHz :-)

"I had one for years"... so, not this CPU :-)
