5 out of 5 eggs Awesome processor, great bang for buck 08/24/2012

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

Pros: This processor sits at an excellent price and is VERY quick. I use it to run VMs and do some gaming, as well as heavy multitasking and this thing flies.

Cons: The stock cooler doesn't work well enough and the way 990FX boards are, you must buy low profile RAM. Once I purchased a liquid cooler, my temperature problems went away.

Other Thoughts: Corsair H60
Sabertooth 990FX

G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9Q-16GAB

Pros: Looks good, low profile, good price

Cons: You have to overclock it to actually get the advertised speeds, which is poor business practice I think. However they aren't the only manufacturer to do that.

Other Thoughts: This memory didn't work well with my system, but it isn't on the compatibility list so I won't blame the memory. I really just want to stress that this is did not work on my system with a Sabertooth 990FX and AMD FX-8150.
