-------------------------------------------
In our review of the AMD FX-8150 last month, we noted that AMD would at some point begin bundling the new Bulldozer CPU with a stock water cooler with the promise of opening the doors to even better overclocking performance for enthusiasts. We've at last got our hands on the model which will come included with the FX-8150 in the near future, and we put it to the test in our updated coverage for the FX-8150 CPU. Find out just how large the additional overclocking headroom becomes with the upcoming stock water cooler.

The cooler is essentially the same as the Antec 920, which means all you need is to get the standard Asetek mounting kit and it will work just fine on an Intel system. I tested this and it works using the Antec 620 mounting device.

However they is just something disturbing about using an AMD branded cooler on an Intel processor :-)

Thanks for the obviously biased review. Any review that mentions "fanboy" loses a great deal of credibility.

LOL

You know what he meant and he is right. For the same price you can get an Antec or Corsair cooler that performs the same, but also supports multiple sockets. It is cool that it is an option now, but since the price isn't really any less than the other coolers available it isn't necessarily the best choice, unless you really want the AMD logo.

Hi ashantiqua,

This information is not disclosed.

AMD does warrant its products for a period of three years however.
