This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8150FRGUBOX
Pros: Great at multitasking and overclocking. Can run benchmarks at 4.9GHz on 1.425v.
Other Thoughts: I read a lot about this CPU before purchasing. Every review and benchmark I read through complained about how the 8150 could be so much better. While true, perhaps, these reviews shouldn't stop you from buying this CPU if it's what you want. As a tech geek myself I was afraid I wouldn't like it. But after some overclocking and benchmarking I couldn't be happier, especially for the price!

Cons: The Ridgeback heatsinks might cause a problem if your CPU HS/F sticks over your memory slots as they are kinda tall.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Incredibly faster than a mechanical hard drive. Best upgrade I've done lately.
Cons: None that I can think of!
Other Thoughts: I was amazed at what I've been missing out on! Over the past several years I've always had top of the line hardware but always thought my rig should run faster. This SSD fixed that problem!READ FULL REVIEW
