AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: > Price, AMD CPU's are great value.
> Overclocks very easily in my Asus M5A99X EVO.

Currently running at 4.2 GHz @ stock voltage :)
I could definitely push it farther. Currently mounted with a ZALMAN CNPS9500A-LED 92mm Cooler.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you are considering the FX-8350 buy the 8320 instead and just overclock it.

Temperatures with my cooler are fine, I don't hit above 55 Celsius while gaming.

ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990X + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: > Well built and sturdy.
> Lots of USB 2.0 & 3.0 ports.
> Numerous onboard LEDs
> UEFI Bios is amazing. So easy to use.
> Board overclocks well. My FX-8320 is @ 4.2 GHz with 1.35 volts.
> Bios flashing is very easy. Took me less than 10 minutes to update to the latest bios.

Cons: None really. If I had to complain I would say the price is high, but so is the quality. You get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: I originally could not get the USB 3.0 header ports to work on my PC case but after replugging in the connector everything worked fine.

This board is the center of my new gaming PC.

ASUS M5A99X EVO R2.0
AMD FX-8320 @ 4.2 GHz

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C8D-8GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: > Great timings.
> Gotta love a lifetime warranty. G. Skill also has good customer service.
> Looks great on an Asus M5A99X EVO Mobo.
> Using a coupon code I only paid $75!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Im a newb to PC building so it took me awhile to figure out how to set the timings. My Mobo was being stupid and running the sticks at all sorts of weird frequencies until I set specific parameters for the timings.
