or one of the few am3 890fx boards with bio update for fx. the 8350 will not worth with am2/am2+. Certain am2+ boards take am3 and could then go with an PIIX6 if ur on am2+ platform, or upgrade to am3+ to go with the 8350

Windows starts loading, gets past post, cpu shows up in bios at its default settings, either at the stock clock or whatever cool n quiet sets it at if enabled.

U will need bios 1703, which i think shows u in the bios, or download cpu-z and it'll show u. If u need to update, download the update from asus, use asus updater and go from there. Need to do this with the 8150, make sure its successful and then swap out the cpu.

high end air coolers perform just as good as lets say a H100 or a closed loop cooler.

Custom liquid cooling costs alot and cools alot better than a closed loop. U have to refill the liquid every so often, etc but i havent done one before nor have look them up. So if u go closed loop go ahead but many high end air coolers do the same thing for cooling.

Going from the 8150 to the 8350 is not worth $200 imo. The difference in performance is not that big

Sell the 8150 for $100 and its a $100 upgrade. OP seems set on a new cpu, as the no budget for liquid cooling lol

OK now that makes sense. I would buy him the 8150 for myself if that what he wants to do

If you have no budget get an extreme11 + 3970x :D 

But seriously 8350 is only 10% faster than a bulldozer, plz wait till the steamroller in Q1 2014 :)  An 8150 will survive until then...

Why not just overclock the 8150? No AMD CPU is really worth the upgrade from it.

Since I was going to ask something along these lines, I'll just jump in here. I have an 1100t in my AM3+ board and was wondering whether any of the current AM3+ CPUs are worth the money to upgrade to.

My main complaint about the 1100t is that it's incapable of allowing my RAM to go at full speed without some northbridge (I think) overclocking, which I don't really feel compelled to do.

Eh no AMD CPU is worth the upgrade from the 1100t either.
