Conclusion

Wrapping this up is going to be pretty easy. On the benchmark front, we had solid performance. I know the 6350 isn’t going to be the best, but we have extremely good performance for a wide variety of tasks. More cores are becoming more beneficial as well. The Wraith Cooler is fantastic. I’m still surprised I managed to reach a 4.5 GHz overclock on a stock cooler! I really hope the Wraith invites some competition in it’s arena. When it’s all said and done, you get a nice $130 price tag on Newegg. That’s a great price for the amount of performance you’re getting right out of the box.

FX-6350 Look (1)

I really have nothing negative to say about this chip. Single thread performance isn’t great, but we’re seeing more multi thread applications across the board, making it less of factor than before. The thing I love the most about this chip is how affordable the components around it are. The ASUS Pro Gaming/Aura is an excellent sub $100 board that also overclocks well. DDR3 memory is very affordable and still performs pretty good. You can save money by sticking with a SATA SSD, but you have the option to grab a good M.2 NVMe drive if you want to. Seeing an old chipset like this get some decent updates is certainly not normal in the computer industry. If you haven’t guessed it already, we happily award the AMD FX-6350, with the Wraith Cooler, the Puroverclock Editor’s Choice Award!
