    ComputerBase tested the whole Noctua TR4 line-up.
    A long story short: They suck (barely sufficient at stock).

    They kept a stock 1950X 0.2 - 4.9 degree C below the rated tDieMax (68 degree C).

    Thats a bridge, not a capacitor.
    Bridge has resistance of zero ohms so you can replace it with similarily (physically) sized 0 ohm resistor.
    The component has not failed without a reason so you...

    I don't have the official production data for these, but the variance appears to be very small.

    FX-8370E = 1.15000V - 1.20000V (for 3.3GHz)
    FX-8370 = 1.30000V - 1.33750V (for 4.0GHz)

    1. Crosshair V Formula-Z <> Sabertooth 990FX R2.0
    2. M5A99FX PRO R2.0

    Those three are the best AM3r2 boards available.
    No competition really.

    Dave, my personal preference is: FX-8370E > FX-8370 > FX-8350 > FX-8320 > FX-9370 > FX-9590.
    The FX-8320E would probably go right after the FX-8370 models, however I cannot comment about it since I...

    You mean the base clock would be at 4000MHz and the boost up to 5GHz?
    The trouble in clocking the cores that high is the fact that the design reaches it's critical point at 4.6GHz region.
