Hmm, depending on your uses it seems like a toss up. Personally I would go with the 8150 and overclock it as much as possible. Clock for clock, Single threaded is better on the 6300. With a slight overlock, the 8150 would be faster single threaded than the 6300 stock.

The 6300 would be the better choice unless you just absolutely needed the extra 2 threads. I would recommend the 8150, but the power consumption is just ridiculous for the performance it has.

Turn off two modules, and try to see if it's stable at 4.0GHz at stock volts. I've turned two modules off and bumped the volt a little to get 4.3GHz on my 8350.

Not that great of a unit. It'll get the job done, but not my first several choices.
