4x4x8 or more exactly 128 cubic feet.

Correct, at least by Department of Commerce posts anyways.

If the wood is cut to 16", you'd need 3 rows 8 feet long and 4 feet high to make a full cord.

Which is why a "face cord" can be deceiving; which is one row 8 ft. long by 4 ft. high but the logs can be cut at shorter or longer lengths.

Be careful buying firewood. Some sellers advertise a stove cord. That's 8ft.long X4ft. High X 16inches; one third of a full cord. There are slippery sellers that can use creative stacking that can sell you half of what you pay for. And some of the stuff sold as seasoned wood was growing last week. Some sellers are totally honest and have long term customers but some are not. And not all trees are the same, fire-wood wise. Buyer beware.

As icehousebob said, be careful when buying wood. A stove cord or fireplace cord is much, much smaller than a true loggers cord of wood. 4'x4'x8' is it. A true cord is very hard to fit in the bed of a shortbox pickup truck. I've seen the difference of both a loggers cord and a fireplace cord in a truck and stacked on the ground and you would be very surprised. Ask whoever you are buying the wood what the difference between a fireplace cord and loggers cord is and see what they answer. If they tell you the truth buy from them. If not, go elsewhere.
