Q: Would this processor bottle neck a GTX 650 ti boost computer or would it improve it from my origional 3.6Ghz AMD processor?
Answer by Matthew on 17th January 2014
Whilst it may provide an improvement, I cannot say what improvement without the model number of your original processor. However it is highly unlikely to be a bottleneck to a lower-end graphics card like the 650Ti. -MR

Answer by Dan@CCL on 20th January 2014
I expect you'll see more of a performance increase in future as games become increasingly designed for 8 core processors, but it should still give you a bit of a boost compared to your existing chip now. It definitely won't cause any bottlenecks. -Danlevan

Answer by Dan@CCL on 9th November 2013
On individual core performance the 4670K does benchmark better, however if you're planning to play games we're expecting performance increases with new games on six and eight core processors due to the next generation of consoles, so you could well see the 8350 being the better performer for gaming in future. -Danlevan

Nice CPU, but can run hot with the supplied cooler. I have a ASUS M5A99X EVO. on fitting the CPU, it didn`t work but after updating the BIOS using the EZ Update from ASUS, it now works perfectly fine. now to look for a decent cooler so I can overclock a little :)
Website User on 2nd December 2015
Brilliant CPU, Apart from the board you have in a bundle severely bottlenecks the CPU, the CPU prefers an AMD 900 series board not a 760G chipset
