Summary: I honestly wanted something to match the legendary i5 2500k without completely changing setups and reinstalling windows. And this basically does just that! I am a casual gamer, but like to spend time tinkering with things, such as overclocking. I might not go there with this cpu as of yet. (actually its my motherboard that needs replacing for more OCing) It does run a little hot, even with my scythe Gran Kama Cross 2. But that's what I expected.
supper fast technology,all core work perfect.Great value for the money!

Summary: first of all,it needs Fx compatible mobo,luckily that I got from my friend he was nomore using that computerit was dead i.e.power supply,hard drive and 4gb ram too. I pulled out it and installed this and matched perfect and have8 8 gb there.The core I checked because I bought used from ebay bidder,using Iolo technoly pro and found no error.allmost all games can play and respond very fast.Super fast web browsing even using 3mbps speed internet,but 15 is recomend for home...
Summary: Got this on a deal around Christmas for $200 and I got the cpu and liquid cooling together in the package. It's a closed loop system which was nice since it was the first liquid cooling system I've put together. It was a major upgrade from what I had before. Easy to install and no complaints and fantastic when on a strict budget.
Summary: No complaints from this CPU. Still learning the more in depth part of computers hardware and overclocking. This processor held up through all of my growing pains(aka big mistakes when overclocking). The cooler keeps the CPU cool even during my stress tests.
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: 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.
