4.0 out of 5 stars Nice processor, ridiculous stock cooler, 27 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Eight Core Processor - 3.60GHz, 16MB, L3 Cache, Socket AM3+ (Personal Computers)
I replaced my 2010 motherboard and processor and installed the FX-8150. It is working just fine. I do image and video editing, and things are running quite smoothly. In some benchmark tests this processor didn't fare that well, but in everyday use I see no reason to complain.

However, I was surprised at the abysmal quality of the stock CPU cooler, even though I had read about this issue in customer reviews. The amount of noise the cooler makes is phenomenal, even when in an idle state. When I started to watch a (standard quality) streaming video, the cooler became so loud I was afraid that it was going to come bursting through the case. I ran into the store and got a Zalman cooler to preserve my sanity.
