For starters i just wanted to say that the amazon description on this item isn't the full name and detail.
This is a 4 module 8 logical core processor, this doesn't mean its not an 8 core processor as it is still 8 cores for processing power as well as these cores are definitely more physical than Intel's i7's Hyper threading which provides 4 virtual cores but in reality its still a quad core. It also mentions 8MB level 3 and 8MB level 2 cache in Total 16MB Cache, each module shares 2MB cache so between 2 cores it has 2MB so it works out at 1MB per core + an additional 8MB on top for all of them to share.

Anyways this is the AMD FX8350 i want to point out to a few people first that X3XX in the processor's name for the FX range of products means that its based using the Piledriver architecture which is 20-30% better overall than the original Bulldozer architecture (X1XX) so this is a major improvement over Any FX8100.

This processor is suitable for anyone who requires high multi-tasking power as well as multi-threaded work such as photoshop & video editing / multi-threaded converting. In my case i do Gaming and Streaming with abit of photoshop work and over 20+ tabs on Google Chrome (a bad habbit of mine) If you are looking for purely gaming performance i would recommend looking at Intel's overpriced i7s BUT if you are running a lower budget THIS or the FX6300 is a definite choice, It completely dominates price for performance ratio in this price range. The fact it keeps up with pretty much every single i5 which cost MORE than this processor shows how potent and sufficient this processor is in the market and industry.

Firstly, the CPU came on time with amazon delivery, as it always does, very pleased with the delivery service

This processor, despite being released all the way back in 2012, is one of the best processors out there on the market. Before i built my system, i was using a shared computer in the house, which couldnt handle very much, and heated up very quickly when you played games on it. So i decided to build myself my very own pc system for university and games etc.

My rig:
AMD FX 8350 8 Core Overclocked to 4.4GHZ processor with a Cooler Master Nepton 280L
Crosshair V Formula Z motherboard
Avexir core red 16gb 1600Mhz DDR3 ram
Sapphire r9 270 dual-x oc edition
256gb Crucial mx100 ssd + seagate barracuda 3tb hdd

I can honestly say this is probably one of the best processors i have ever used. Even at stock speed, it runs extremely quickly and has no faults whilst under heavy usage

For all those people looking for a budget processor, i would 100% recommend this processor, since its cheap and although it doesnt beat the high end intel I7's on the market on paper, the difference is barely noticeable when actually using this system. I have compared this to a friend's configuration running an i7 4790k and the speeds are almost the same. The i7 is faster of course, but not that much faster as to compromise usage or have any overall effect, and it is £120 more expensive.

Whether you're upgrading or building a pc with a budget, 8350 is a must have.

Came on the day estimated...good start!

Anyway, I had the Phenom II x6 1090T processor, on idle 20c full load 45c (water cooled H50 push pull 2x SP120 corsair fans)
Got this, runs at a very noticeable faster speed, even though i had the 1090T OC to 4GHZ this comes with a 4GHZ as standard and just click on your turbo in BIOS and poof!!! 4.2GHZ.
now my point is that this core for some reason that is magic runs COOLER yes COOLER than the 6 core,
Idle 16c some times 14c depending on room temp which is around 22c - 25c and max load i don't even touch 40c anymore. there really is no need to clock this CPU to 5GHZ just yet as there is no game out there that needs it. but if you do have a sealed water cooler over heating will never be an issue, oh yeh make sure you get good thermal paste, it will help.
Renderring:
40mins per 15min 1080p HD video with the 1090T
17mins per 15min 1080p HD video with the FX

speaks for itself.
now i rarely use stock coolers so your temps will vary and it will always run hot with stock.

This processor for AMD is worth every penny £150 for a processor this good that rivals the best i5 chip at a fraction the cost?? it so obvious what to buy!

My rig:
NZXT Phantom 630 gaming case
16gb Corsair vengeance RAM 1600mhz
Sapphire 7870HD 2gb
Corsair 850w Modular PSU
Crosshair Formula V - Z
AMD FX8350 Black edition 8 core processor (4.2GHZ)
H50 sealed water cooling (push pull setup taking air from inside the case limiting dust that builds on the fins)
4x 200mm fans also in a push pull config keeping good air flow.

My review on the 1090T before had a good rating and i hope this review is just as helpful.

The FX8350 is an 8 core/thread CPU with a pretty potent multi threaded performance
It's clocked higher than the FX8320 processor (which is at 3.5GHz) but I would point out that the multiplier is unlocked on all the FX range (including the all the 4/6/8 series models)

You can if you want to simply increase the multiplier on the FX8320 in the bios to achieve the same performance as this CPU.(subject to variations on processors, some over clock better and some require more voltage to get there)
All that aside, on to the processor though.

The FX8350 offers 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. It's particularly well suited to demanding tasks, esp since most modern software supports multi threaded applications.

A larger level cache also makes for a good gaming chip, esp for heavier graphics demanding games, just about all new releases have good support for many threads and cores.

So it's both a good chip for applications that are typically hard on processors, but also does well for entertainment needs

Quick summary of good and bad points

Pros:
+ Outstanding bang per buck
+ Excellent multi threaded performance, quite stunning in some applications (esp video work where it's comparable to higher level rivals)
+ Improved single threaded over bulldozer
+ Great potential for over clocking
+ Newer instructions: Support for AVX1.1, FMA3, F16C, Bit Manipulation and Trailing Bit Manipulation instructions
+ Turbo core 3.
