AMD FX 8 core processors: sweet dreams. FX 8370 vs FX 8370e

While AMD gets pretty close to the i5s and the i7s from Intel, it does so by being a bit cheaper and this is something I like. The guys at Tek Syndicate tested the 8 core FX processors FX 8370 & FX 8370e and found out that the first one was a bit better, by 2-3 frames in each test they did while running the video games at max settings.

What caught my attention and what needs to be stressed: certain processors only go best with certain motherboards and wit certain graphics cards.

Check the image from below taken from the video above:

As you can see, an AMD FX-9590 processor, like the one form my dream gaming pc, works best on an AMD 990FX motherboard and with an AMD Radeon R9 290X graphics card. You could couple these with a Cooler Master Nepton 280L PC CPU Liquid Water Cooling System and a 100W power supply with PSU from Fractal Design called Tesla R2 .

Now you’re ready to game!
