FX-6300 vs FX-6350
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

The 6350 is not a TRUE 6 core, the 8350 isn't a TRUE 8 core either. They are 3 core and 4 core respectively. The 6350 has 3 physical and 3 virtual cores, and the 8350 had 4 physical and 4 virtual cores.
My Phenom II 965 BE stomps the 8350s butt and runs circles around the 6350. And Ive got it OC stable at 4.2GHZ on 4 PHYSICAL cores.
Even my i5 3570K stomps a mudhole in the both those AMD processors, but it doesn't beat my Phenom.
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.
