what are the top stable CPU clocks so far on this 8150? i know what they are on the 8120. what about the 8150??

Really high, though the frequency doesn't reflect much since each core is about the same as a Phenom II, or even a tad slower on certain bench marks. I've seen some 5500Mhz+ though.

Intel FTW. Hopefully AMD Does better soon.

the people were expecting that bulldozer will be the topper but unfortunately it can't beat 2500k or 2600k so don't waste money on fx series.

A number of websites show 4.5 GHz. OC's with ease on air but I think people are still learning the best means to OC these new FX CPUs..

from the fx8150 reviews i've read,
4.4-4.5 on avg. on air, typically 4.4 ghz.
using water cooling it goes higher.
4.5-4.8-.9, sometime 5+ (2 reviews iirc), typically 4.5-4.6 ghz.
fx8150's max turbo core speed is 4.2 ghz iirc so the oc speeds are not that much.
even on those speeds fx 8150 was slower or nearly at par with 2600k oc'ed @ 4.6 ghz, sucked up a LOT of watts. 2500k on 4.4-4.6 ghz could keep up with the oc'ed fx8150. 2600k's max turbo boost speed is 3.8 ghz on single core and 2500k's is 3.7 ghz iirc.
imho amd's ghz and cpu cpec numbers are sorta deceptive compared to intel's. they always look more from a spec perspective but they always end up being slower in tests/benches.

If these processors had an average oc of over 5ghz, with some hitting 6ghz on air. (already seen a handful of 8120's at 4.9ghz)...I think AMD could make a real push against Intel. Even with the benchmarks showing no gains. As long as the performance margin is ballpark range, people would buy just to have an 8 core computer @5ghz+ , regardless. Trust me, I know Intel has a better product, but we don't want a monopoly in the computer processor world.

why not because amd fx has 8 cores therefore it should be oc'ed to 8ghz and intel 2500k has only 4cores and oc'ed to 5.2ghz with liquid cooling.
but ivy bridge can solve this problem when it comes out..

Any? No. Although it has 8 cores there are many mutlithreaded games/applications that bulldozer could not even beat 2500k in. I think it was metro? Not sure. Bulldozer does excel in some things but IMO overall its not worth it. Bad performance per watt and per dollar. I read an article somewhere where an old employee admits that bulldozer was botched because bulldozer wasn't hand-designed or something so there were many efficiency issues.

Really interesting you say that because AMD's FX holds the record and its nowhere near 9000 and the second runner up is a Celeron D 352... No cpu hit 9000

Its amazing how quickly people forget what the OP is about. The OP simply asked what the highest stable OCs' were for the FX-8150 on air, and somehow this became a thread just trashing the FX-8150 and how terrible it is compared to the 2500K (which isn't as dramatic as they would like you to believe). The FX series is very overclock-able and can achieve fairly high OC's on air, the average user can usually get a stable 4.5GHz sometimes more and sometimes less

FX 8150 with 8 cores is a LOSER! It got "BULLDOZED" by The GREAT Intel core i5 2500K which has only 4 cores.

i read that some people had the 8120 @4.9 as soon as they were released....it seemed to be a consistent # that kept popping up, so was expecting higher #'s from the 8150 with a +500mhz stock clock. are they still working on stepping for these chips? or they just didn't bother?

There really isn't a difference with the 8120 and 8150 when it comes to overclocking on air... Kind of like the 1100t, 1090t and 1075t...

^^^^ Again, when talking about overclocking there isn't much difference when all the above are compared on average overclocks. Do you remember the X2 5600 BE vs the X2 6400+ situation... Same thing... I am not the best by no means but I am ranked 37th out of 2000+ people in the united states on HWBOT so I do tend to know a bit...

if that's the case then that's the case, but that isn't always the case. you will get a couple hundred +mhz top end overclock with a 2600k compared to a 2500k.

First, no reason to bring intel into this thread and you comparing a 2700k to a 2500k is totally different. You would have to compare a 2700k to a 2600k as they are the same type of chip. Which actually turns out to be the same idea I brought up...

last time i checked i wasn't really interested in arguing with you....so not sure why you are coming directly at me, as if i really had anything to do with your life. next, last time i checked the phenom black chips were the same chips, and the 975 was going to get a bigger oc than a 955. look up the word displacement in the context of psychological aberration.

lol, now he is on Phenom II X4's... you sure bounce around to make a point... I will not visit this post again... ur not on the same page... However, a Athlon X2 5600 BE is not the same as a Phenom 9950 BE or a Phenom II 970 BE nor a Phenom II 1100t BE nor a FX-8150 BE... So therefore all black chips are not the same, not even if you compare Phenom II X4 970BE to a Phenom II X6 1090t BE...

Stock clock speed is unrelated to overclock outcome. Highest 2600k and 2500k oc speeds are similar as with bulldozer cpus too.
