same with 8350??? much improvement??? i guess what my question ultimately boils down to is.....
If you had a hot 8150, and wanted to ditch it for somthing cooler running but still a good performer, would you run the pII 980be that sits on your shelf? or would you splurge for the 8350??? im looking to take advantage of your 20/20 hindsight
Hmm.. Not sure for BD so far since I only touched a FX4100 but seeing how long those things are even compared to my 925...
But anyway, A 980BE should be cooler depending on the amount of load you are going to place on it. Would prefer a X6 thou.

Im going to be surfing the web however itd be great to so performance on the real deal
Current setup for me is a Sliver Arrow and A AP-31 in the middle. Temps are a bit better compared to my Ven X RT with the same fan but that ball bearing rattle is annoying. Depends if you are going to overclock as well.
