This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6 GHz 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
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.READ FULL REVIEW
