Currently running just fine OC'd at 4.0GHz. Stock cooler is pretty bad but everyone knows this by now, sorry AMD. Apart from that, I believe this is a better buy than the 8350, as you can get the performance of that CPU for less.

This CPU is a few years old as far as tech but man does it still kick major butt! It destroys games with blazing speed! Makes me extremely excited for the new Zen stuff coming out.

Stock fan is very loud. Its worth it, only if you get it under $120, then it would be bang 4 buck CPU.

from completed build Hol' - First Ever Build (Budget of roughly £450) AKA "Murphy's Law"
Fantastic CPU, hasn't broken a sweat yet in the tasks and stress tests I've put it to. With a good mobo, solid cooler and the right adjustments of voltages and frequencies you have so much headroom with this Processor. Without even touching the voltage I had 4.0GHz stable at 44 degrees w/ 100% load. Passmark scores for this chip say the rest, beastly. And although single core performance struggles in comparison to Intel Core series chips it compensates in other areas.

Fantastic CPU for the price. Definitely worth saving the few $ over the FX-8350 and buying this one to OC.

Fast, runs cool, and is very powerful for the amount you pay. Will be upgrading this to a Zen CPU eventually.

Awesome, it has kept good temperatures for me, and runs what I need it to. At 3.5 GHz, it does not bottleneck my GPU. I will overclock soon.

from completed build First Build, Might as Well Make It Look Good *Updated May 2018*
Currently clocked at 4.5ghz. Great CPU, no issues whatsoever. Its paired with a corsair aio so the temps dont go past 35 degrees celsius under load.
