Isn't the 8120 just a slightly slower 8150? Or are there actually more transistors and what not?

Looks great willup. So, you are happy with the Sabertooth? I am considering a mobo upgrade. Looking at Geeks, can get a refurbished one for $120, I might go for it.

Very impressed with the sabertooth. Only have had it installed for two days and I have to say it's great. I have been building computers for over 10 years and this might be the best motherboard I have used for easily 3 years. It just works. With the Asus software it shows me the thermal temps of everything. One thing that I'm noticing tho is with overclocking higher the vrm is getting a little hot at times. If your going to want to push to 4.8+ I advise getting a water cooling block. Which I'm going to purchase soon. That's of course with over 3 hours of testing lol. Doubtful with regular use it would ever push the cpu and vrm that hard. Very solid board go get it!

If you overclock the FX-6100 to the same speed as the FX-4170, will it perform the same as the FX-4170 in games? The reason I ask is that in most benchmarks the 4170 is ahead, which I assume is due to higher stock clock speeds??

That sounds about right. Most games use 4 cores or less, so the faster clock speed yields better results than more cores. The biggest exception to that is BF3. It will use all the cores you have, so 6/8 cores will do better, even with lower clock speeds. I play mostly RTS games, so I don't have any exact numbers I could give you regarding BF3 performance with an FX-4170. I can tell you that getting really high clock speeds is easy with a 4170. I was able to get to 4.6 Ghz with one click of the mouse in ASUS AI suite. All auto-voltages and rock solid stable. To get a 6100 up that high might require a better mobo than the M5A97 EVO I have, and of course some good OC skillz.

@ Willup: Summer is my indoor season here in Arizona, so I have been tinkering with my rig a lot lately. I added the 4170 a month ago, yesterday I ordered a Thermaltake W2 Pro (the fatboy smile.gif) and a new NZXT case. I am in the process of building a new Graphic design rig for the wife right now using some old parts, and the one part I don't have laying around right now is a mobo. So I can either go the easy/cheap route and get something like an M5A88 EVO ($47 on Geeks) and use it along with my old 555, OR I can get a better mobo for this rig and then use this M5A97 for hers. I like the idea of having her rig be a complete known to me, so re-using the M5A97 makes sense. And of course, "papa gets some new shoes" this way. thumb.gif I have a fair amount of confidence in my working knowledge of this line of ASUS mobos now, so buying a refurbished one that perhaps does not include all the documentation, etc that a new one does is not so intimidating. $120 for a Sabertooth is sounding like the way to go. I started a thread to try and get some feedback about this here. Not that I completely base decisions from community feedback, I guess I am just looking to wash the options around some and maybe fishing for some sort of validation on my thoughts. I could get the $149 CH5 too, but so far I have not found a really good reason to get it rather than the Sabertooth. If someone has some convincing reasons why I should go with a CH5 rather than a Sabertooth I would sure like to hear them. I am pretty much a tightwad, so it is a rare occasion when I drop this kind of money on a hobby, but when I do I like to make sure I am making good choices.
