CORSAIR CX series CX430 430W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Can be mounted vertically or upside down, using in a NXZT Gamma case.

Cons: Runs hotter to the touch than I would like - especially as there's no discrete video card installed/one 300gb velociraptor/one DVDRW/five 120mm case fans running simultaneously, but that is Channelwell Technologies' style

Other Thoughts: This is powering 3870k, Biostar TA75A+, GSKILL DDR3 1600 for an away-from-home GTA IV/EFLC machine

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket FM1 100W AD3870WNGXBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6550D
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I have been using this processor with Biostar TA75A+ (bundle deal). playing GTA IV/EFLC with medium/low graphic settings with memrestrict commandlines

Cons: Hard (for me) to figure out how to overclock this chip and get real world results/benefits. Cheap noisy heatsink, so am using Thermaltake V1

Other Thoughts: $300 for motherboard, processor, and ram, worth it.

5 out of 5 eggs Usual Biostar Quality/Overclocking 09/03/2012

This review is from: BIOSTAR TA75A+ FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Using this board with 3870K to play GTA IV/EFLC without a discrete graphics card installed

Cons: No real concrete info out there on what socket FM2 is going to perform better or not

Other Thoughts: I spent about $300 on motherboard, processor, ram. Worth it, but note living in a hot or humid area will decrease computer performance severely
