I wonder how the power consumption was when overclocked...5+ GHz and that voltage has got to be toasty! :evilgrin:

I was hoping the single-threaded performance would go up to at least Phenom II level though. :(

Toasty? Greg has some serious watercooling going on haha

Gonna read this later though. 5+GHz tell me its all cores now.

Actually the H-100 handled it very well :)

It's now sitting in the Holodeck ( I installed the third radiator) and is 23 minutes into OCCT @ 5.3GHz :cheers:

So you didn't test in the holodeck? Also 5.5 looks nicer than 5.3 ;)

Haha well looks like you finally have that upgrade you where after now to bring quadfire back again :)

It's on order :P heheh. There are rumors that with Heavy duty watercooling 5.5 is doable, guess I'm gonna find out :)

How much does the CPU pull at those speeds/volts? My 8120 pulled over 400 watts when pushed hard...

It appears that OC power consumption is down by 15-18% with the 8350.

So basically it's still sky-high compared to anything else on the market? :P

That's disappointing to say the least. :(

Wow...it's not any more efficient than the 8150 at stock. The higher clocks can be blamed for that I guess...which means overclocked consumption should be down a decent amount (but still sky high).


Oh well. People will buy them anyway. :lol:
