Pros: Inexpensife, easy to install, 8 cores! Say no more.

Recently upgraded my old AMD 6000+ Dual Core chip with the newest AMD FX-8150 8 Core powerhouse. Installation is easy with the ZIF chip housing on the ASUS Sabertooth 990 FX motherboard. For the price you cannot beat what AMD is offering. I have not OC'd her yet, but will do that soon as I can't wait to wring some extra power out of this CPU.

Pros: Better than the reviews; OC's to 4.5gHz easily; best video transcoder and multitasker available.

Cons: Water cooling is almost an essential; ALMOST the best thing AMD ever produced.

There are far too many reviews comparing the FX-8150 to what it was supposed to be. The things is, in my opinion, it IS exactly what it is supposed to be - an eight core processor that, when tasked with software that acually uses eight cores, is one of the highest performing CPU's in the market. Using tanscoding type benchmarks, such as x264 FHD Benchmark, transcoding a DVD into an HD .avi or .mkv, or simply having fun OC'ing the processor shows us a processor that that has guts, power, and the ability to chew up and spit out the toughtest assignments a computer user can apply. Bulldozer is a perfect name. It may not be a perfect processor for the gamer or the one who has an extra...

Best chip for my use

Pros: Cheap, server grade, full virtualization, 8 real cores

Cons: none

If you've seen all the negative review on the FX-8150, you might be afraid to try this chip. For me, it's a godsend. I don't play videogames, if you do maybe this chip isn't for you. I run more of a server/workstation than a desktop computer. However, having a small, unprofitable business, I don't have an unlimited budget. For me, the FX-8150 is by far the best chip on the market. For my purposes, it beats an i7-3960X, which costs more than my entire system did. The chip also supports ECC memory, which the i7-3960X does not, but I'm still not sure if my motherboard does...
