The PII X2 vs e8400 comes down to the price, in which the X2 beats is for price/performance. Also not including a combo deal.

Your other argument is invalid because I didnt have to worry about the price of 1156 being the same as AMD motherboard because I got a free motherboard with my X4

The Phenom II X6 is a better value even though the i7 920 is better. The X58 is a huge investment, some of the motherboard were $250-300 for a long time. With Phenom I could get an el cheapo AM2+/AM3
Not sure why you are still comparing prices of 2 year old hardware.

Going by MC prices the 8150 will be the same price as an i7 2600k, and the mobos are about the same price, except with i7 you get $80 off with i7 combo. I haven't heard of BD combos but I'm sure they will eventually.

The 8120 will actually be $40 more than the i5 2500k.

My point, current gen hardware is what people care about in 2011, and in 2011 Intel still retains price performance crown ATM.

NB clock cannot go above 2800/2700 on air. I have tried, itll be in my OC guide.

NB clock makes almost no difference. but under LN2 you can bump it upto like 4ghz+ which helps with LN2 benching, which i think is what BD will be good at.

It probably runs so hot because its a big die, with a large transistor count, and has a longer pipeline with higher clocks than prior chips. Also, leaky chips tend to OC better, even as their power consumption is worse.

Seems reasonable that the leakiest dies are going into the FX chips while the ones with more favorable power profiles are being saved for Opterons.

yes, its impressive. Ima try the same tomorrow. See if we can bench 7ghz full go with BD, on all cores, then dude that might be enough headroom to do good.

It does run hot, but the stock voltage is WAYYY too high. I can do 4.8ghz stable with 1.41v load/idle. AMD says stock VIDs from 1.3-1.4v.

I can do 4.5ghz with 1.28v idle/load, and it runs cool as stock.

They are overvolting too much

Aye...
Well, for AMD's sake, BD had better put up a better showing on the server side of things.

in gaming at stock its getting trumped by the 980 BE?

a world record holding bottleneck, this is quite sad.

are there any reviews of it with cores disabled and overclocked? im curious.

how about max OC on air? anyone?
i did this, http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2041683

Than i did this: http://valid.canardpc.com/show_oc.php?id=2041712

Another thing, BD loves high HTT link. Like 230+ is better than multiplier. SPI loves multi, other benches dont.
