4 out of 5 eggs Great, but a little warm 09/16/2012

This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD8150FRGUBOX Desktop Processor

Pros:

The CPU is very powerful, and it performs well under all conditions.

Cons:

I noticed it seems to run a little hot (112 F idle with stock heatsink), which is understandable with an 8 core processor. I purchased a larger two fan heat sink, which dropped the idle down to 60F.

Other Thoughts:

I would recommend this to users that require a larger AMD CPU. If you need more power you can choose to go to Intel, but expect to pay a lot more money.

If you purchase this I do recommend that you purchase a different, larger heatsink.
