Sorry for hijacking the thread.
Below is the score from my wife's 1600X that I built for her a month and a half ago.
It does pretty well,....runs great,...and I just tried to give her an Intel Core i5-9400F box as a further upgrade and she threatened me if I did it.

The FX-8350 uses no more power, other than maybe full load, of which most doesn't do all the time.:)

Here's the Phenom II x4 965 build, trying to figure out how to get the RAM to run in dual channel mode on this MB. Maybe I should remove one stick, boot so it registers, then add the other. First time I've seen this, will try another set to ensure my MB isn't bad (don't think so), this is my 3rd of the same model, the ASRock 970M Pro3 is the best 970 mATX on the market. Newegg recently restocked it at $65, it was going for nearly $180 on Amazon (used).

Good Luck with your build & have fun!:toast:

The FX-8350 uses no more power at stock, this is true. However, it has a lower operating clock frequency (4.0Ghz) and turbo (4.2Ghz) versus the FX-4350 @ 4.2Ghz stock frequency and 4.3 ghz turbo, and once you start overclocking the FX-8350 pulls ahead rather quickly. A 5Ghz FX-8350 will pull about 220w versus a 5Ghz FX-4350 running 150W or thereabouts.

Good luck with your AMD 965, thats a fun CPU to work with. I had mine at 4.0Ghz for years and years. Still holds it's own for basic computing tasks.

That about finishes up the build. I'm decided to keep the CPU for my collection. Final upgrade to 8GB RAM and 320GB storage hard drive.

Have some work to do, not getting the results for the clockspeeds I'm running vs what others have scoredwith the same chip type (FX-4300 here) but will figure it out sooner or later.
Good thing is I can get the speeds so I have that to work with at least.

Where is your processor missing the mark? i.e what benchmarks are you running?

When you get it dialed in feel free to run Cinebench Extreme and post your result here since this is now a hybrid thread :)

Yeah, it was CB15-E I was running.
Did it with two chips today.

And my 720BE.

More work to do but I'l get it figured out.
As for my FX it's doing great, just need to get some tweaks dialed in, speeds are there and that's something to work with.
