AMD FD6350FRHKBOX FX-6350 FX-Series 6-Core Black Edition
If you're putting together a computer, or replacing your old CPU, and you don't need all the power of an eight-core processor, then consider this one as a terrific option. While it only has six cores, it still runs nice and fast with clock speeds of 3.9GHz. You get 6MB of L2 cache memory and 8MB of L3 memory, which helps your system run faster and manage programs more effectively. Ultimately, if you were running two systems to compare this with an eight-core processor, the chip with more cores would definitely run faster. But this is still a solid option at nearly half the price, which makes it a great choice if you don’t need blisteringly fast speeds but still value terrific performance. This is also a great option for overclocking, with low power requirements, which can pretty easily deliver speeds over 4.0GHz, so keep that in mind if you're an experienced overclocker.
