Pros: Red LEDs, With match your computer nicely
Cons: Everything else, This item has been RMAed 2x now. The first time the PSU worked for about A year. The 2nd one they sent me did not work out of the box.
1st PSU , Worked for about A year. My computer screen would go black and lock up when I was playing some games, very rarely . Then it started to Artifact. I assumed my GPU was going bad. My GPU was RMAed and replaced with A new GPU. However my computer was still doing the same thing. After hitting up some forums, I replaced the PSU with A older GPU and everything worked ... Magic right ?.
I RMA-ed the that PSU.
They replaced it with A bran new one, YEA!!! ..
( WRONG )
I did not install it for about 4months ( I am disabled and it is very hard to rewire your computer when your hands dont work well, However for Xmas I got A few more computer parts, So i was going too do everything then.)
I have everything installed, Very nice and clean looking.
I turn on the comp and their is A very HIGH PITCHED BUZZING coming from my comp, I check all the fans. and wires ect ...dont see anything .... and the sound goes away. I go back to computer launch Chrome and the buzzing come back way more strong. ... I can now tell its coming from the PSU. I try a few other things look in the PSU threw the fan. I see nothing odd.
I launch Word of Tanks .. the sound kills out the buzzing for the most part...but when their is no sound you can hear it.. But then I get Artifacting !!!!. My computer was just working with the old as PSU .. but the bran-new OCZ ... Nope...
Other Thoughts: Do Not buy this. I am now 0 for 2 on these. I have no Faith in OCZ.
Remember When you have too RMA this PSU you will have too pay to ship it too them, Shipping this is not cheap, it weighs over 8LBS in all, also they wanted it packed their way or they will not accpet it, that will add too the weight. It cost me $36.87 to ship it to them one time! I am going too have to do it again .. I have paid almost $80.00 too have them send me a working unit.
On another note OCZ declared bankruptcy do you really want too buy something from someone who is DEAD !!!!!. google OCZ declared bankruptcy
Pros: Worked As Stated 2133 @ 9-11-10-28 w/ 1.65 on AMD FX-8150 & Crosshair V Formula
+ 500 Pts on 3Dmark 11 (P) vs 1866DDR3
Color matches my MB and really Matches Lian Li ARMORSUIT PC-P50-R
Cons: Price Vs 2x Dual Channel Kits. As we all know Quad Channel kits are just 2x Dual Channel Kits. It is Cheaper to buy 2x Dual Channel kits then this (saves 15.00)
That x2 = 140.. 155 - 140 = 15.00 more.
I Had been watching the Dual channel and they went out of stock .. waited a few days ... still not in stock. I then Ordered the Quad , later that day the dual is back it stock .. go figure ..
AMD Does not take advantage of Quad Channel. save yourself some money and buy 2x Dual Channel kits here.

This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8150FRGUBOX
Pros: Works, No Issues, Overclocks Well ( W/ H-80), Will run everything you need. (However you still need A GPU for new games)
Cons: 1) Not much better (if at all) Vs AMD PII 6x 1090 /1100 (in fact the older CPUs do better in A few benchmarks).
2) Do not hold up Vs intel Sandy Bridge (1155) far as Value (Value = Cost / Preformance, FX-8150 Vs i7-2700/2600.
3) 8x Cores is useless, For the most part you will not Make any use of the 8x cores. Even in BF3, It will not use all 8x.
4) I have seen (in person) A few Fx-8120 that will OC to the same speeds mine OCed. Save money get the 8120.
Other Thoughts: First And Formost.
I am not, and in no way A intel fanboy.
