many people can't even POST with the FX8150 or 8120 even after updating the bios, so beware. (this is on the CHIV)

Probably people who don't know how to reset there CMOS, that's all I had to do once I dropped mine in to get it to post via jumpers.

Far from it, you cant post at the minute with the stepping that is in the retail channel with a CHIV.

Sounds like you're pretty new to this. Take my word, don't buy a Bulldozer processor. For your own good. If you want an AMD processor so badly, stick with ur 1090T. Cheaper price, better performance. 8 cores are useless for 99.999% of applications that most people actually use. And the single thread performance on Bulldozer is historically poor. It also uses way too much power.
