Summary: Bought this mainly for bf4 and it works like a dream. bios are super user friendly, one click of a button and it was overclocked to 4.2ghz. only complaint is that it runs a bit warm (60c under load), even with 5 120mm fans.
It's a cheap monster for speed, yes intel is faster but you pay big bucks!

Summary: This may not be the fastest 8 core chip made but it has given my video editing a lot more speed. If you have a program like cyberlink or Corel that takes advantage of a multicore cpu this will be a workhorse with corvette speed for you. On my computer programs like crapcleaner take around 3 seconds to work with this cpu. With an Asus sabertooth motherboard the fx-8150 overclocks with ease and has been stable at 4213 mhz, the normal speed is 3600mhz.
Summary: Fantastic processor! I am very please with the speed eight cores has to offer. Most of the time, even when I'm multitasking, the processor doesn't even utilize all eight core because it doesn't need to.
Summary: This thing is faster than Paul Walker. For the price, can't beat it. This cpu is stable, fast, and handles Everything I throw at it. slap some ram in and go. great job amd! looking forward to the next gen!
Summary: I'm sure AMD doesn't want to hear their CPU's are "budget", but let's be real - Intel is just kicking the living trash out of AMD right now. Still, for a budget build, the performance is fantastic at the price point. Put this in a build for my uncle's PC and it worked without a glitch - a Windows 8 build. This is the 2nd 8150 I've purchased and would definitely buy it again.
