Pros: Very fast, much faster than I expected based on benchmarks and reviews online. This is a big step up from a Phenom II processor.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-970A-DS3P AM3+ AMD 970 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: This was a pretty hassle-free installation with an FX-8350 processor. No surprises.
Cons: This is a pretty basic board in terms of features. It only comes with 2 SATA cables, but this is all known going in.
Other Thoughts: This is a decent budget board, mine works fine. It works well in Linux but you have to disable the IOMMU in the BIOS. This came as no surprise to me as I have had several UEFI boards with this same exact problem, it's just what you have to do to make it work.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS9700 LED 110mm 2 Ball CPU Cooler
Pros: 5+ years old and still works great.
Top notch cooling performance.
Fits standard AMD bracket, don't need to install aftermarket backplate.
Cons: Difficult to install. If you have a small or difficult to access case, I recommend installing it outside the case.
Non-PWM fan, but many boards can still control the fan without it. You have to look though. This cooler predates PWM fans.
A bit loud on full blast, make sure you have a fan controller of some kind.
Other Thoughts: I bought this cooler over 5 years ago to cool my socket 939 Opteron 165, and it worked great, was a notable improvement over stock. I changed cases and had to switch because it wouldn't fit a couple years ago. Recently, I just bought a new 6800k APU, and needed a better cooler that fit the standard AMD bracket, and this thing fit the bill. Dusted it off, put on some new Arctic Silver 5, and it worked great. Cooling performance is still top notch, worth every penny. Dominated the stock APU cooler, more than 20C improvement at full load.READ FULL REVIEW
