something doesn't seem to make sense, conflicting info. i see people saying they have the 8120 at 4.9ghz. seems the 8150 would go to 5.5 at least. then i see a thread on this forum saying 4.5 was max stable for 8150. if 4.5 is max stable for 8150 i definitely wont buy it.
its a coin toss with cpus and overclocking. It depends how lucky you are when you chose a chip and which bin it came from. Every one is unique. Some will oc higher than others. Its just your luck if you got one doing big numbers on air.
The 980x was a very expensive oc exercise for the professional overclockers as it was the chip for the records but at 1000usd a pop. Like buying a 1000usd raffle ticket
