    I'd definitely go for a better cpu cooler. These days you can get a decent one for almost no money. The Bulldozer cpus are known as not beeing energy efficient, they tend got get very hot easily (the same problem with its successor, the Vishera cpus).

    Under the bios there is a "CPU Smart Fan" Option and it has these settings " Disabled, Auto, 3-Pin, 4-Pin" It's currently disabled. My buddy said he's going to get me a new cooler. The Evo 212 I think it was.

    80c is way to hot for your 8150, and you are at risk of destroying it. I've been running an 8150 since they have come out, and to me, something is wrong somewhere.

    Some of your numbers seem outta whack, compared to mine.
    Also, I don't use the stock cpu cooler, I use this one.
    Noctua NH-D14 CPU Cooler - Newegg.com set to "low" setting.(for quietness)

    CM 212 Evo should be enough if you don't plan some radical OC. It has 120mm, 4 pin fan. If "CPU Smart Fan" is set to Disabled that means your CPU cooler fan is running full speed all the time. Watch out when you change CPU coolers. First, most probably, MB will have to be taken out to mount cooler, it has a metal base to go behind MB. It's probably going to come with a kit for mounting on all kinds of processors. As it has exposed heat pipes at the surface mating to CPU, applying paste is different too.

    Ugh, small wander you get great temps, that's probably the best cooler out there. I'm using this one : Mugen 3 Rev. B: CPU Kühler, Lüfter, Lüftersteuerung, PC Netzteile von Scythe but with 2 x 2200rpm fans.

    Hey Count, what would be making his frequencies so far off(below) the mark do you think...??
    Mine are standard. Also his voltage seems to be off.


    (I got my cooler largely for the quietness factor)
    Scythe is also top notch...

    My case was designed for easy heatsink installation. The panel on the right side where all the cables are hidden has 4 holes drilled for the plate. In fact that's where the plate for my current HS is. No need to take the MB off.

    I had to go radical with cooling, not even CM212 Evo could do anything about temps on my Phenom when on 4.2 GHz. This one keeps it under 55c no matter what. Btw, that FX 8150 clocks like crazy, my friend has his going at 5 GHz 24/7 without any problems but under CL 12 Evo cooler. Had it going for couple of seconds of course at 5.7GHz once and even booted to BIOS at 6GHz but wouldn't go to windows. It's on a GA990fx-UD7 MB and 2133MHz RAM because HT goes sky high at over 5 GHz.
    About Colin's problem, I think BIOS did not recognize processor properly and Auto settings are off from optimal. I prefer finding exact data for components and setting BIOS manually. Those "Turbo" or undervolting and "Power saving" features do not have to be optimal if all left on auto.
