Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: A lot of storage space. No failures in 3 years.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This the main drive on a 3 year old build.

AMD Athlon X4 860K Kaveri Quad-Core 3.7 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AD860KXBJABOX Desktop Processor (BLACK EDITION)
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: A quad for less than 80 dollars. PCIe 3.0. DDR3.

Cons: Comes with cheap heat sink. Why bother? FM+2 is dead end.

Other Thoughts: The X4 860K is comparable to an I7 920. " Sins of a Solar Empire" Would not respond often with the i7 920 build. With the X4 860K build the issue is less. This is due to clock speeds. FPS are about the same in other games.
My 7970 can take advantage of PCIe 3.0. FM+2 may not be a dead end. I could upgrade the GPU.

DEEPCOOL Gamer Storm CAPTAIN 120 CPU Liquid Cooler AIO Water Cooling Ceramic Bearing Pump Visual Liquid Flow with 120mm FDB PWM Fan Rubber Coating Deep Silent Support LGA 2011-v3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy to install. Works great keeping temps under control on my AMD Athlon X4 860K.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: Some complaints about the tubing being to stiff. The tubing is just fine. Just orient the pump and radiator in the right direction. The inlet/outlet on the pump should face toward the front (forward) of the case. The inlet/outlet on the radiator should face toward the top (upward) of the case. I purchased the Captain 120 because the included heat sink that came with the AMD Athlon X4 860K is worthless. The price of the Captain 120 is comparable to after market air heat sinks and water cools better than air.
