AMD FX 8350 Bottlenecks?

Hazarded

Does the fx 8350 get botlenecked by 2 r9 290's without overclocking? Or should I get a 9370?

I already have the gigabyte 990 fx ud5 mobo and don't really want to overclock

Thanks

Actually it might be the other way around if there is any throttling of the 8350, it may bottleneck the 290's

An 8320 can't even bottleneck a 295x2. I even built a rig for a friend and he has an 8350 with a 290x and it isn't bottlenecked.

Getting your CPU to bottleneck your GPU is actually kinda hard, you'd have to run a cheap i3 to start bottlenecking.
