I pre-ordered this cpu from Ebuyer UK in early September 2011. It was supposed to be released on 16/09/11 but due to delays, I did not receive it until end of October. I initially purchased an Asus Crosshair formula V mb but due to ongoing problems, I had to return it. I suspected the mb was inherently unstable or it was causing some compatibility issues with the FX8150. Fortunately, on USA Amazon at the time of writing, there are 4 reviews (and many comments) for the FX8150 (where a few guys have confirmed there is some compatibility issues between the Asus mb and FX cpu). I replaced the Asus crosshair V with the Gigabyte UD7 990FX AM3+ mb. It is a great mb. It is working perfectly and I have no issues whatsoever. I gave reviews on UK Amazon for both motherboards. I was also very disappointed to find out there are no reviews on UK Amazon, Novatech, Overclockers, Ebuyer, etc for this FX8150 cpu. So I have just submitted my review on UK (and now USA) Amazon (and a short version on Ebuyer).

Despite all of the negative reviews given by Intel fanatics, this FX8150 really is not bad at all. I also prefer to judge for myself (although I was initially concerned due to negative reviews by intel fanboys). I have been using it on a stable mb for just over 4 weeks now. At idle, cpu hovers between 37-41 degrees celsius (dependant upon ambient room temperature). When stressed (gaming), cpu can go up to 55C, so it does tend to run a bit hot (I am using it in a coolermaster HAF 932 atx case). BTW, over the last 7 years, I have had 6 Intel based pc's but now I decided to give AMD a go, as I was intrigued by the Bulldozer.

My AMD rig = FX8150, Gigabyte UD7 AM3+ mb, 580gtx, 8GB DDR3 corsair vengeance ram 2000MHz but at default 1333MHz, 1200watt psu. Everything is working perfectly.

There are many reviews on the Internet and bench mark results which shows this card being very bad in comparison to Intel or the previous Phenom II. In my experience I have found it to be faster and better than my previous Phenom II, I get more FPS in games for a start and seems to be all round slightly faster running programs and such.
This processor AMD have gone about creating a new architecture which only means they will only get better and better as they improve on it. These processors I believe have got bad rep from all the reviews but I think its slightly biased or done by Intel fanboys for bragging rights. This processor is nowhere near as bad as people are making it out to be and it worth the money.

The only thing I find slightly annoying is Intel fanboys always comparing benchmarks when in the real world for example an Intel CPU would only be .25 seconds quicker, if that. (I don't mind Intel at all its just the obnoxious people that buy Intel, which seems to be the majority when you look online)
Although you need a new socket on the motherboard for this AMD CPU. You won't need to buy another motherboard when or if you upgrade to furture AMD CPU's (AMD 8350 for example). Unlike Intel which needs a new motherboard with every CPU upgrade basically.

Runs perfectly well with the Asus Crosshair v Formula motherboard. Also a few reviews pointed out the standard CPU cooler isn't up to scratch, in my opinion I would get a new one (the cooler the better) but it isn't vital only get one if your overclocking. I don't want to get into great detail about the CPU and have a long boring review that nobody wants to read, so:

Its a good processor, overclocks well, runs rather cool and I think worth the price.

I've got the fx-8150 in the Asrock 970 extreme 4 mainboard and Artic cooler 7.
After 24 hours of burn in, and using Bios settings, it OC'd to 4.4 Ghz. That's a 25% increase, stable on all 8 cores. (55c @ 21c ambient room temp, full load)

Vcore 1.3125
CPU 200Mhz
Multiplier 22x

It will probably max out @ 4.5-4.6Ghz with the Artic cooler 7, 60C?

The Win 7 hotfix gave a 5% increase in Luxrender performance.

I recently brought one of these, connected it up to my 13 row artic cooler and at idle i was getting temps of 49c. I thought this was strange and put the originally cooler on to just make sure it wasnt a case of poor fitment on the cooler.

With the original fitted the idle was at 56c without overclocking. Using prime 95 the temperatures quickly rose above the safe 62c limit. At one point after 2 minutes or so it was at 68c so i stopped the test. I have seen that this processor also comes with a watercooling kit and i can see why the two are bundled together. The standard cooler just isnt up to the job so factor in a good cooling set up if you want to use this processor 100%.

I refitted my artic cooler and even then the temps were too much for my liking so im getting a Corsair H60 water cooler.

This processor is great value for money. I managed to get myself this processor, 8GB DDR3 ram and Asus motherboard for £300 and thats pretty cheap for the spec of PC i now have.

I would factor a cooler into the equation when buying this processor, it will help performance but also ensure it doesnt melt!
