i was wondering whether the 8150 fx will run properly in a crosshair iv extreme i have been looking for answers to this question but im getting mixed results and unclear answers im a week or so away from my purchase and id like some input from some one else running a similar setup ( 8150 in an am3 socket )
The 1090T is a better gaming CPU but the Bulldozer will do more heavily threaded work and apparently overclocks well.
im running Linux as my main os and don’t really do a pile of gaming so i think bd fits better than the 1090t for my needs. as long as it will have no issues with running on my board i think bd is my best choice.
I'd go with the 8150, but your going to still need a bios update first, if your old cpu is dead I don't see how your going to do that.
only 2 cores are dead the bios update is not an issue
