Have person I work with who is wanting to buy AMD system for general rendering and VirtualBox.
He was wanting to go with FX-8150 and clock it to 4.2ghz from 3.6ghz full time.
Then FX-4170 came out at 4.2ghz but only go to 4.3ghz and appears to be poor overclocker.
I would lean towards him to get the FX-8150 because it is established in bios of many boards and also seem commonly able to clock to 4.2ghz and past with air cooling.
But I would ask for thoughts from others on this situation.
