5 out of 5 eggs Best CPU for the money 09/30/2013

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

Pros: Runs Great.
Mine runs at about 50c with minimal cooling during heavy gaming.
Haven't had a single problem when tweaking and playing with it in Bios.

Cons: Cons Are the usual for CPU's.
Stock cooling isn't great but it works just fine, if you have heat issues look into better ventilation or aftermarket cooling.
Stock Thermal is rather Blah, Scrap it off buy something good, your already spending the money spend another 5 dollars.

Other Thoughts: As i am sure most people know by now.
This is not a True 8 core CPU, its 4 cores hyper threaded acting as 8 which is still better then a standard 4.

Pros: Runs efficiently.
Runs quiet.
Plenty of cables for all your needs, and you only have to us the ones you need. No dangling cables you need to manage and hide.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I see other people complaining about electrical noise in this unit.
So i decided to hold off about 2 months on this review, and so far its running as perfect and smooth as the first moment i turned it on perhaps its just bad luck on other users part.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Great Card, Good warranty, Performs like Expected from ATi/AMD. Fps has dramatically improved for me in everything i play went from 27fps in dalaran to 50.

Idle @ 39ºc
Full load @ 54ºc

Running it at 900mhz and 1300 memory, use nothign but standard fans in my case

Cons: Card is freaking Massive... like an inch longer then my 4870 was. Had to work awhile to get it in eventually had to set it in case sideways and slowly turn it til i could seat it.

Other Thoughts: Great buy if you can afford/ Manage to grab one.
