I've built a few rigs based on this processor (I use an FX6300 myself)
This is the one to go for if you want an FX 8 core CPU. The FX8350 is clocked higher and costs more, but as the multiplier is unlocked on all the FX cpu's you can simply increase the multiplier on the motherboard and match the clock speed of the 8350.

The FX8320 offers potent and improved performance over the bulldozer chips, in some cases quite a bit better than expected. Single threaded performance is better, but where you really feel the extra power is in intensive applications such as rendering and video encoding work. This is the ideal processor for heavy lifting tasks that require more cores.

Quick good and bad points

Pros:
+ Outstanding bang per buck
+ Excellent multi threaded performance, quite stunning in some applications (esp video work)
+ Improved single threaded over bulldozer
+ Great potential for overclocking
+ Newer instructions: Support for AVX1.1, FMA3, F16C, Bit Manipulation and Trailing Bit Manipulation instructions
+ Turbo core 3.0 improved over previous version
+ Full 8MB lv 2 and lv3 cache

Cons:
- Power hungry with heavy overclocking
- Stock cooler too small, even if you're not overclocking get something better (like a coolermaster Hyper 212 Plus - one example lots of choices) and is too noisy
- Would prefer 95w v 125w
- Mixed performance in some applications, it's very strong for video (punches well above it's price v the Intel equivalents), in some applications it's not as good as an i5

The newer "piledriver" offers some enhancements over the first generation
Improved FPU and integer scheduling, and better branch prediction and pre-fetching.

It currently does what it's supposed to. I've overclocked it to just below 4GHz with ASUS M5A98 R2.0 & CM Hyper 212 Evo. With no issues so far, would recommend, for sure.

Bought as part of my sons new PC build. He's mainly using for minecraft and a Cinema 4D project, and he's been very happy with frame rates and rendering speed

Reaction time while copying and pasting in Word, searching in the Internet is more than excellent, Installing Windows 8 goes very fast and is a pleasure in itself. The smaller programs, apps, can be installed simultaneously. I could not have imagined that the difference with its predecessor, AMD Phenom II 965, would be that great. All was quiet and cool on the CPU front because I again used the silent CoolerMaster HyperTX 3 Evo CPU fan as before. This customer is very happy with his purchase.

I love AMD and upgraded to this along with a gigabyte 990fxa-UD5 and love the combo.
Overclocking has been easy and nothing can stress this cpu too much, Battlefield 3 is my main game and it runs at about 40% cpu usage, limited by my 7870!! This will definitely be a long term purchase and I look forward to AMD's next range of processors.

This processor is great. Plays GTA V paired with a 960 at well over 60fps. However, the stock cooler. Could it be any louder? I had to talk very loud while recording a video because it honestly sounds like a jet. I upgraded the cooler to a Hyper 212 Evo. I have also got a stable overclock of 4.2ghz. I like the cpu, it also is good for rendering videos too, renders fast.

I went for this processor over the FM2 socket'ed and graphics including cousins even though it doesn't support as fast a memory for my gaming build, and its great. Stock cooler doesn't look worth a damn though, but haven't tried it due to buying a Zalman cooler for it.
