The FX 8300 was chosen over the FX 8350 because it could easily be set to the same speeds as the 8350 without much issue and for cheaper. The eight core is definitely aging but it still does the job.

8 cores and it is compatible with the MSI 970A SLI motherboard.

It's a CPU that works for me. If you don't mind dabbling in a bit of overclocking, I see no reason to get the higher-end chips since this one easily overclocks to 8370 levels for $80 less.

So far I am very pleased with this CPU. I wasn't ready to jump on the ryzen train but I wanted a 6 or 8 core CPU since I usually have quite a few things going on at once(game running in the background, blender and gimp running while playing music or streaming youtube. This thing has no problem keeping up with my workload. The fx series run hot from what I'm told but the wraith cooler keeps this thing nice and cool.

Despite being a bit of a fake (being an 8 core but in reality it's a 4 core) this isnt a bad cpu. It overclocks really easily, provides decent performance and can be a fair workhorse/light gaming machine. That said, don't buy new as the platform is really dead by now and I dont recommend the stock cooler. It runs very hot!

Holds it's own, handles an overclock nice, for the price I paid, you can't beat it.
