Big Grin 
so today ill be getting my first new CPU in about 5 years, much excite.

i think my phenom 965 is becoming obsolete with these new high tech games now.

ill be getting a AMD Piledriver 8350 black edition with eight cores, so hopefully that will allow my gfx card some more breathing room.

plus i just like the name Piledriver tbh.

I could have gone the intel route if i had more cash to get a decent mobo and i7 etc, but AMD for me is a balance of performance and price.. anyone else have one?

the 8350 uses slightly less watts than the 965. and ive ordered a Akasa cpu fan to go with it. was thinking of getting one of them sealed water cooling kits (bolt on and go job) but i think for £8 this akasa will do the job.

I would have gone Intel, but it's a personal choice, are you planning to overclock or leave standard

not going to bother oc'ing it, i personally don't see the need too. if i wanted more power i would have chosen a different cpu Smile

That fan should be fine then, water Cooling would have been overkill

I'd personally have gone for a devils canyon i5, around the same price as the fx 8350 yet the cores are much more advanced and take up less power. Saying that, I'm an intel fanboy, so of course i'd say that. Wink

Have a look at some sort of low profile noctua coolers, or the good old cooler master 212+, really good for their prices
