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

The CPU is fast, is excellent for multi-tasking and is at an unbelievable price, those who think you need a core I7 to play games on max think again, this CPU is half the price and can run planetside 2 (the most CPU intensive free game I could find) on max setting perfectly. However I find that the stock fan is small and since the warranty is void if you don't use it I find that the CPU is getting hot (around 40 *C idle and close to 70 *C on high intensity), nevertheless I'll be getting an after market CPU cooler and thermal paste some time in the next year. Anyway this CPU is definitely the absolute best in its price range and intel has no competition here.

Excellent fast processor. I mainly use mine for music studio & video editing.
The item arrived in good time and was packaged in a sufficiently sized box [rather than a ridiculusly big one].
The supplied heat sink is the usual laminated fins + 4 copper heat flow pipes. Looks effective ! The supplied fan is noisy and will probably get swapped out at some point.
The processor chip was pre pasted with heatsink compound and the whole thing was easy to fit/plug in.
Altogether a big step up from my 7 year old intel quad core.

A combination of this a GeForce 7 series Graphics card, 960gb SSD, 18gb ECC ram, and a Sabretooth motherboard has given me a blinding machine.
