    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.

    from completed build My first budget rig

    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.

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

    This CPU is a wonderful bargain. Yes, it's old, and yes, it's cheap, but it works like a charm and has not caused me any issues.
