I'm starting this thread so all of us AMD guys can collect our overclocking and benchmark results for the FX-8350. I'll start.
Here's a photo of my new chip in its fancy tin:
I flashed the bios on my Crosshair V Formula motherboard to the most recent version and installed the chip last night. Ran it at stock setting for about 5 minutes to make sure it was stable and went right into bios to overclock. Selected the "Enable Extreme Overclocking" setting in my bios, increased the multiplier to 22.5, tightened up the RAM timings to 9-9-9-24-33-1T, and bumped the vcore to 1.4 volts. Left everything else at stock settings. The chip is now humming along in Prime95 at 4.5GHz. No errors so far and it's been about an hour. Max temp thus far is 47 degrees Celsius. I'll post a screen shot when I'm done running prime. And I'll put up some benchmarks too. So far I'm pretty impressed with this chip. The overall responsiveness of my system is noticeably improved compared to my 8120 and overclocking is a breeze.
Looking forward to everyone else's results as more of us get this chip.
