Hey guys I was thinking whether the AMD FX-8150's Stock cooler capable of keeping CPU cool like playing games like MOH Warfighter or Battlefield 3 or Metro 2033 or Crysis 2? If yes what max temp will it get?

At stock settings, yes. Max temp will be high 50's unless you have the rig in a hot room.

Once you start overclocking the stock cooler is useless.

Actually, the stock heatsink included with the FX-8150 is pretty good and you can mildly OC with it. However, I don't recommend this course of action.

If you plan to OC, get something like a CM Hyper 212 EVO. You just don't want to take chances with your CPU.
