This review is from: Avatar Desktop PC Gaming FX8327X AMD FX-Series FX-8350 (4.0 GHz) 8 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Windows 8.164bit
Pros: Well organized, BIG case, 8 core - 4GHz Processor is hard to beat, Motherboard is good and can adapt to future upgrades (MSI 990FXA-GD65V2), Ram was good for entry level gaming (8GB DDR3 Silicon Power 1600 MHz 1.5V 11-11-11-28), Boot and restart buttons were easy to access, 2x USB 3.0 slots on top of case were handy, Well vented case but needed the three fans. Graphics card runs well.
Cons: I had to order three fans (12 cm floor fan and two 12 cm roof fans) to get good ventilation but it would be fine without them if you are not planning on running the computer hard. (CPU temp was typically 43 C at 5% operation without the added fans).
Other Thoughts: There are a few questions on online forums about the motherboard being stuck at 1333 MHz RAM and not supporting >1.5 Volts RAM. After installing the upgraded RAM and some BIOS checking, the mother board is fully capable of supporting RAM frequencies from 1333 MHz up to 2133 MHz (will downgrade speed to 2133 if above it) and can handle the full range of RAM voltages.
