i was just thinking to myself....people are getting to 5ghz on the fx8120....if some people start getting the fx8150 to 6ghz, don't you think that will start an AMD craze? even with sub-par benchmarks? if people start seeing 6ghz, they will go nuts.

So why get a CPU just because it overclocks well when there are performance issues with it to start with.

I am at 4.2 GHZ on stock air with a max temp around 45 degrees celcius, its is an unbelievable processor and for the money, beets the i5 2500k, but get the 8120 instead to save like 30 bucks the only difference is the clockspeed, clock for clock they are the same.

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
