AMD FX-8120 with liquid cooling is available for pre-order

In February we reported on pre-order prices of then upcoming FX-Series microprocessors, one of which was a boxed FX-8150 with liquid cooling. The CPU had close to $400 pre-order price, and the price eventually slid to $375 level ($384 from Amazon). The processor hasn't appeared in stock yet, however different FX model with liquid cooling solution surfaced in online stores. That chip is FX-8120, and it has part number FD8120FRGUWOX.

Like the FX-8150, the FX-8120 SKU has 4 Bulldozer modules, with 2 cores per each module, and shared 8 MB L3 cache. The CPU is clocked at 3.1 GHz, and Turbo Core feature can boost frequency as high as 4 GHz. The frequencies are lower than on the FX-8150, and the price is lower too. The 8120 processor with an air-cooled fan/heatsink has official price of $205, or $40 cheaper than the 8150. AMD FX-8120 with liquid cooling can be pre-ordered for $310, that is $65 - $75 less expensive than liquid cooling version of FX-8150. Availability date of the new FX-8120 processor is unknown.

What about AMD FX-8120 (FD8120WMW8KGU / FD8120WMGUSBX) or FX-8140 (FD8140WMW8KGU)? Some time ago they announced that 8140 will be available in March 2012. I'm still waiting.

I wouldn't wait for them... Those are 95 Watt parts, and all of them could end up in OEM systems.

Well, it seems that FD8120WMGUSBX is boxed CPU... I'll give them some more time, or will go with FX-8120 (FD8120FRGUBOX). One can say - wait for Vishera :)
