    Stinger, I would like to join my colleagues and wish you healing. Maybe we can help somehow?

    It's really so. Both chips can easily overclock to 4.5 GHz without voltage bumping. But:
    -8120 has stock frequency 3.1/3.6 for 8 cores
    -8150 3.6/3.9 for the same
    For this reason, it is assumed that at the same frequency over 4 GHz 8150 has lower power consumption (subjectively, it is less heated at the same cooling).
    I have not been able to to reach 5GHz with 8120, only 4.9, while, as 8150 was 5.1 in air.
    In my country, 8150 is 50% more expensive than 8120, otherwise I would have left it at home.:)

    I totally agree with Norton that if there is a possibility - it is better to get 8150.
    I would like to add that only a few tasks FX performs faster than the Phenom.
    Norton says thanks.

    Sorry I had to correct you. Sometimes we lose sight as to what the chip actually is. :p Oh did I mention I like the fx-6200 ?

    Fixed: for 4 dual-core modules:p

    As for the FX-6200, Norton can appreciate, I have not used this chip.

    8x1= 2x4= 8 hardware processing units. Whatever it is, it can run 8 jobs at once! :p

    Unusual tidbit: WCG lists FX as 6 or 8 individual CPU's (Thubans as 1 CPU w/6 cores)

    FX-6200 runs well but I like them both.

    The mailman dropped off the K9A2 combo and the 720BE just now. I need to hurry the !@#$ up and get my stuff done at work so I can get these running. :D

    Yeah, they said the CPU would come in tomorrow but it arrived today with the combo. USPS Priority Mail stuff is supposed to be 2 days but my video card I sent to Kantastic is taking 3. It's a bit ridiculous how their tracking system can't even track a package and get the delivery date right sometimes.

    What's funny, when you said the mailman I thought you meant "TheMailMan", meaning our own TPU comedic.

    Brandon's board is working great with the 720BE, GT 440 and my 2GB OCZ 1066 CL5 sticks. Currently at 3.6GHz for now on a dirty Win7 install (I think I installed it on the M5A99X I had to return) until I can play with it more, but at least it's up now. Too lazy to pull the Thuban out of the mATX PC because honestly it's a cute little sleeper. Haven't decided whether I will torture it with GTX 460s and F@H yet, but it does have 4 PCIe slots so... :)

    FX-8150, cheap PSU, 8 port gigabit switch and Accelero L2 Plus ordered yesterday. Can't wait!

    EDIT: Oops, it had a BSOD. Bumping it down a notch since it is a C2 stepping.

    Anyone here got a spare 939 board with some 333 ram they wouldn't mind giving up? I found a Athlon 64 X2 3800+ for $10 on my local kijji and I wanna start up a new cruncher :3

    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    I have a spare 939 board and some pc3200 memory in it. I can't in good mind give it away but I will give you a good price on it since you are a fellow cruncher. It also has a x2 4200+ in it. Pm me if interested. :toast:

    Yep, it's running good at 3.5 now. I'll have to see what voltages it likes at that frequency and I'll probably swap with the 1045T.
