CLEARING THE AIR
With negative reviews floating all around the internet about the FX Bulldozer one may think this is trash and a complete waste of money which is totally not true .
The performance hiccup materializes beacause the scheduler in windows 7 is not optimized to distribute load across modules
and microsoft has already released an incomplete patch to overcome this situation and will surely be completely fixed in the coming months .
Even in the current situation , the processor performs no less than the intel sandy bridge processors and which makes this a great eight core processor with the required fixes expected shortly .
8150 or the 8120 FX ?
If you plan to buy a Bulldozer 8 core buy the 8120 over the 8150 because the 8150 is just a binned processor with a higher tested core frequency . With the Rs 2000 odd saved you can buy a good after market cooler like the cooler master hyper 212 plus to overclock it to achieve similar performance of 8150 and even go beyond with liquid coolers like the corsair h60
The 8150 and 8120 processors are collectors edition chips and hence come in a nice TIN BOX and like all FX series processors come with their multiplier unlocked to achieve easy overclocking .
To achieve best performance you can buy gigabyte ud3 or ud7 990fx chipset motherboards or asus m5 990 fx chipset motherboard
If your sole purpose is to game then disable some cores in the bios which lets u overclock the remaining good ones even higher and also save power.BF3 runs smoothly at 75 to 80 fps with 6950 on a 990fx chipset motherboard .
If you are still a little shaky then wait for the next revision of these processors expected in first quarter of 2012 ...
enjoy the amd fx multi core performance and remember there is nothing wrong with the hardware only that software has to be optimized to take advantage of the new module based architecture ...
Yo Guyz...!! I jst purchased dis CPU and believe me its MIND BLOWING the best performance CPU i ever seen till now...!! Before i got i5 and now dis and its better than i5 but sorry to say its uncomparable to i7 Extreme edition but NO PROBLEM i got wat i need..!! ;)

all my components i buyed from flipkart...!!
and of course great service from flipkart...!!
Note: Dont O.C. dis processor with STOCK COOLER
if u think my rig is cool and if this review helped u so thumps up...!!
I have been using the FX 8120 for quite a while. Initially i was apprehensive to go for an AMD build or stick to the costlier Intel build. I decided to go for the FX build.
I had checked reviews and benchmark test results on several review websites.. they scared me.. it seemed that the FX series was hardly performing better than the older PHENOM X4s!! yet I took a gamble and built my system.
My mobo isnt powerful.. BUT, the 8 cores are really showing off their potential.. I am a freelance graphics artist and video editor. I am running aftereffects, PS and other intense apps without the CPU breaking a sweat.
My only problem is that the CPU overheats after 4 hrs long video rendering times.. but, i did expect that and it is also nothing that an after market cpu cooler cant fix :)
Real bravo to AMD for a fine job!
now, if only the pesky, intel-inclined review sites can stop posting biased reviews for AMD!
The water cooling system is only available on their flagship processor the 8150 which comes in a normal cardboard packaging and not with the one which comes in a tin box
Flipkart only has the tin box edition which is the collectors edition and comes with a traditional heatsink and fan
The water cooling system for the FX Chips is manufactured by Asetek.
Asetek were one of the first companies to offer closed loop water coolers and are also the original manufacturer behind popular water cooling kits like the Corsair H50 and H70 and the Antec Kuhler 620 and 920
But anyways you can always buy this and add a corsair h50 water cooling which is cheap and a great performer especially if you are overclocking and you should without any worries
its very decent processor which will not disappoint any one in any field. Windows 7 index rating for this is 7.5 so you can imagine how powerful it is along with this the performance to price ratio is also quite high. till date the intense games or softwares use at most 4 cores so in some benchmark results shows that it lags behind. but it beats its competitor when there is any software or games which use more no. of cores.
without even overclocking it shows a great and satisfying performance.
the only problem is with the stock fan and heat sink. they are really useless. it reaches around 65C when playing games in ultra resolution graphics and at ideal its around 45C.Amd has said that max temp should be 61-62C.Buying a liq cooled or some good cpu heat sink will definitely do.
