FX-8150 Performance Question???

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Gang,

I'm wondering if anyone has already done some performance testing with the FX-8150 and AsRock Fata1y Pro, and Crosshair V. I'm wonding which board the FX-8150 performs better on, either standard or o/c'ing.. I have both boards here in hand, so If no one knows then I guess I will be off to the testing bench..

I'm asking those with hands on experience, I've seen the sites with reviews, but from this point I'd like to know from a real users point of view.

EDIT by pioneerisloud:
Please refrain from using the term fanboy, and keep this discussion civil. Thanks.

Motherboards make no performance difference... It's only a few percent and within the margin of error when you are doing benchmarks. I like the AsRock though because it is priced better, better expansion layout, and has onboard debug LED.

Crosshair V is far better in quality because its one of the top boards of ASUS

Is that true for 900 series boards? I haven't seen any motherboard comparisons, do you have any you could share?

All within the margin of error. Same goes for pretty much any group of motherboards that have the same chipset. Very rarely does one board have a major performance advantage or disadvantage over the other. I know this is using Phenom II but same difference.

So, Dopamin3

It really comes down to layout and preference.. as I look at both boards.. the fatal1ty does have a nice layout, and offers a little more, like dual gig ports, and led red out.. but the Crosshair V seems to be solid looking.. I know the UEFI on the Fatal1ty is crap compared to the Asus UEFI, but the my be my own opinion.. lol I may end up using the fatal1ty.. but the next 5 days will tell.. lol.. which one goes to the workbench and or which one goes to the gaming desk..

Motherboards matter for durability and most especially how far you can overclock your CPU. A bulldozer aint no lightweight when it comes to power draw so youre gonna want the biggest, baddest, beefiest motherboard out there and right now thats the Asus Crosshair V and Sabertooth as those are the ones built with the toughest components and will handle the most abuse.. But yeah, in terms of how well itll bench, theyre all gonna be about the same. And Im hear to tell ya, Asus' UEFI is just freaking awesome! Easily the best UEFI going right now. If you can read, you can work it. Heck, you could probably work it pretty good even if you cant read!

I don't get how the bios is crap. It's just as good as the Asus. Keep in mind you can change the background logo so it doesn't show his face, that's really the only negative thing I can think of about it.

It doesn't really make a difference other then the layout and functions like pci-e 3.0 and such but also i would advice you if you didn't already buy the 8150 just go for the 8120 instead it's the same chip and cost's less the 8150 is just the same with a stock overclock, personally i'm using 990 FX Sabretooth and it's great
