This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD8150FRGUBOX Desktop Processor
Pros: A great processor. Fast as all get out.. and while some say it was not good for gaming it did fine in everything I threw at it.. from flight sims to FPSs. Where this processor really shines in multitasking. I can rip a CD in WM while doing a virus scan, surfing the web, playing a MP3 file in WinAmp with photshop open and a game running in the background with not even a burp. My temps have never gone over 48C either doing all that..
Cons: None so far..
Other Thoughts: The one thing I will say is that the stock cooler is not the best. I mean it will work fine for the casual user.. but I suggest you get a better cooler if you plan to push it. I have not over clocked and I was planning to get a water kit.. but the after market cooler I got (Cooler Master Gemini II) works just fine and the processor runs so well I have had no need to OC it.. I know these CPUs bench poorly when compared to some of the Intel offerings .. but in practice I have to say that it has done what I bought it for and more very well..READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Well first off right out of the box it barely held a charge. It worked for about 2 weeks but the sound quality was not that good and it kept dropping the BT synch. Then eventually it just died. Totally dead.. The customer service leaves a bit to be desired as well.
Other Thoughts: I do not recommend this product. Save your money and put it toward something that will work better for you because this is not it.READ FULL REVIEW
