Sounds like throttling, to bring a 8150 that high, a heatsinked 6+2 pwm is a minimum.

Or it may be throttling because of temperatures.

Can't help unless we know the motherboard model!

FPS depends largely on IPC..aka Instructions Per Clock
Which the the FX series of AMD CPUs is highly lacking in.
i,e. an old Intel Core 2 Duo will get higher Frames Per Second.
Denebs and Thubans are pretty good.They are decent.

Neither PD nor BD has any problems AT ALL in Bf3. And even in the most un-optimized, console-portishly game ever, this should happen.

Edit:
To OP
You could try dropping the OC, might be throttling going on here. You won't notice a big difference in BF3 stock vs oc, if any at all.

The motherboard is a 970 Extreme 3 from ASROCK

Vrm are throttling, i had a fx-6100 on a asrock 970 extreme3 that would throttle at 4.6ghz before the temps were even close to tripping. I'd bet the best stable overclock you could get on the extreme 3 with an 8150 is about 4.3ghz, maybe 4.4ghz.
