Pros: Worked great while it worked. Played every game I threw at it.
Cons: It seemed to run hot, and within 2 weeks of its warranty expiring a capacitor on began to leak. After about 20 minutes of running the card shuts off at around 60 degrees Celsius (well under threshold)READ FULL REVIEW

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