Reviews Word on the street

Phenom II X6 Black 1100T  vs FX 8350 

The AMD CPU has other benefits, though: its unlocked multiplier, which makes for drastically simplified overclocking; and the fact that AMD's unified socket design means that the CPU will work in essentially any AMD motherboard on the market.
Phenom II X6 Black 1100T

AMD has finessed the new 1100T's pricing carefully and it matches up well with the Intel Core i7 870 in multithreaded benchmarks such as video encoding and professional 3D rendering.

i must have been confused when i wrote this. i can't even remember why i did or how i came to my conclusion in the first place haha
Since when does the 6350 kill it? In single threaded apps, the 8350 will still do better as its clocked at 4ghz stock, while the 6350 is 3.9ghz they are the same chip, just 1 has more cores, nothing else,
mine a 1100t no degrade is still running at 4027.Mhz more than one year and I can still bump up but a little choppy so @ 4027 still runs like a charm water cooled on a Corsair H50 idle 23c full load 52c.... but 8350 is my next upgrade with a better water cooler probably corsair H-100 and OC hopefully 4.8
I'd prefer u get an 8350 and O.C. it to the 9590 5Ghz. Benchmark tests proved that 9590 is still slightly inferior to the 8350 O.Ced to 5Ghz. hah i know my suggestion is damn late. :(
how does this have the same "performance" of an 8350, yet the 6350 kills it?
Agreed with awi5951, 1100t was a champ in it's day but over time and constant use at 4.3 GHz it's now degraded to 3.9 GHz. Saving up for when the 9370 because the cost of the 9590 "IS TOO DAMN HIGH".
My amd 1100t started to degrade after about a year of being overclocked to 4g now i can only run at 3.7
