Great when its not freezing 05/21/2013
Pretty fast, makes video rendoring quite a bit faster than my last rig!
The day that I started installed this I started getting random freezes, I figured I was low on wattage so I threw a new power supply at it. That didn't end up being the culprit (but I got a new power supply with my wifes blessing because of it, I will call that a mixed con) so I checked every single component to no avail and it was still working fine when I swapped in my old CPU. The random freezes are still a continuous plague, and waiting for the new PSU put me past the 30 day swap warranty with newegg... Which led me to AMD "support" where I was given a windows update that had no effect, then I was told to contact newegg and ask them to help me troubleshoot the problem and to make all further requests for tech support with newegg...
This really makes me wonder about my continued loyalty to AMD, I know it's more bang (in numbers at least) for your buck, but if this is how they treat customers with broken products, I am no longer interested in that kind of "savings."
