fx 9370,a maior mancada da AMD!
I agree. I have the 9370, and I may be looking to replace it with the older 8350 for the primary reason being that the 9370 gets too hot.
O fx 9370 só perdeu no quesito "consumo de energia". O restante, como era de se esperar, venceu o FX 8350.
I own this processor.This is a Perfect processor.Using a Corsair H75 Dual fan Water cooler i have temperatures of 0ºc in idle and 57ºc.Power in idle 54watts in full load up to 350watt.I want to point out this was artificially maxed out.This processor does not normally max out.Even in some programs even if a program is set to use all cores it may only use 1 core to get a job done because it does not feel it need to use all.Performance is beyond anything i have experienced from any computer.In fact i would say every other computers response times an performance were horrible in comparison.Not bragging. In games Temps average 44ºc.I am using 2x8 2133MHz ram.In Turbo mode Cool and quiet works excellently!I would like to Overclock this to see how far i can take it.However i have found that Overclocking these more advanced processors will not burn out.But your motherboard will.So i will not conduct this test.If someone has done this test please leave links to this information.I highly recommend this processor over any others with the exception of the FX-9590 which is superior to this one. Performance in games are limited by your graphics card an not the processor with this chip.Despite what is believed this is not just some overclocked FX-8320 or FX-8350.The memory is higher an components are designed to do higher calculations.So leave those delusions at home.From a memory L2 and L3 of 1600Mhz to 2133Mhz this is way faster on chip.So no it is not overclocked. There are NO crashes,blue screens,freezing up,screen tearing,sound anomalies,overheating,random mouse movements,blur in video productions,faded areas,stuttering,or any possible issue i can think of using Pentium Celerons or Haswell processors.None of them!This score of 8.3 is way off.It is a 9.9 in overall. Using FX-9370 on a Asus M5A990FX motherboard using 2x8 2133MHz ram,in a Luxo M30 case using a 900watt Rocketfish Silver Power supply on Windows 7 Ultimate.In my Windows WEI i have all 7.8s
This is where AMD really dropped the ball. The FX-9370 uses a lot more power than the FX-8350 but only bring marginal performance enhancement; the one to recommend would really have to be the FX-8350, even if the price (currently) is slightly lower for the FX-9370.
