-After processor upgrade to AMD FX 8150 Black Edition, windows crash (soon as "loading operating system" disapear) saying that "recent hardware changes afect some files and need to reinstall or repair", both options didn't work, reinstalling from usb pendrive hangs up or reboot with blue screen, the same with repair.

well just to update the thread,

the FX8150, was a faulty processor, I return it and get a FX-8320 as replacement, I was so happy with it, until I try to play Battlefield 3, and the app crash everytime.

I stress test it, at stock speeds (3.5Ghz, fsb:200Mhz) with prime95, OCCT, Overdrive, aida64, all tests fail bigtime (hardware errors).

I'm going to return it again today to the reseller so they can test it,

I can't blame the motherboard or the ram since both works great with the PhenomII x4 945.

it's the first time amd is such a pain in the... at least for me
