The entire advantage of the AMD processors is that they overclock well.
I know, I just didn't know if the 6350 vs 6300 is like getting a GTX 560 with factory overclock vs a normal one... you can overclock it yourself and save the money and getting the factory overclock doesn't really increase the maximum overclock you can get
Well, since it's the same architecture and the same process size, you're still playing the same luck game (after binning of course) in the capability of your chip, and the ceiling should remain the same, although the boost in non-turbo speed is nice for non overclockers since it's a flat boost in speed on all cores, rather than a boost in turbo speed, where one or more cores is throttled down as the others speed up. No changes in cpu memory cache, so in a nut shell it's almost like the factory oc option although with the whole multicore aspect it works a bit differently than ramping up base clock/ boost clock/ kepler boost
Well this is why I am here, to correct many fallacies in statements :). The FX series does NOT have logical processors. The FX-83xx has 8 cores on a module design. The problem is, the FX-83xx has 4 modules each with 2 cores and 1 floating integer. So if you want a true comparison, an FX-83xx has about 6 full cores of power. You lose about 50% gain after 50% load give or take. The FX-8350 does NOT get stomped by the 965 BE. Sure OC'ed to 4.2GHz it will probably win in single threaded applications, but most newer games that use 3 and 4 cores, the FX-8350 will offer better performance as well as better multitasking. Now if we're talking about first gen bulldozer CPU's, ya they were garbage. Same basic design with 2 IPC's vs the redesign of 4 per. Also, in no world will a 965 BE beat a 3570K clock for clock in any situation.
