Lenovo Z50 (80EC000TUS) Notebook AMD A-Series A10-7300 (1.90GHz) 8GB Memory 1TB HDD AMD Radeon R6 Series 15.6
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Newer Kaveri CPU is very fast with signifigantly powerful GPU for barsically all indie games.

Cons: Everyone of these cheap lenovo laptops sufferes from this a absurdly tiny battery. 2 hours is about what you shoul be expercting, not 5. for a 700$ laptop it is clear that they need to get over this stuff and put a decent battery in. (every amd lapop that I have seen from lenovo has had this problem)

Next up Screen Resolution
You have a powerful GPU in this thing, signifigantly stronger than all intel intergrated GPU's lets see you use that for something useful. Like a decent screen.

Its up to lenovo to make a decent computer for this new processor and they have yet to try

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: None

Cons: I bought the first version 1.0 of this board it went bad a few months ago due to the common north bridge overheat. I didn't get my RMA back, so i though I would give this one a try since it has a significantly better heat sink. Unfortunately that doesn’t matter if there are no Ethernet drivers for linux ANYWHERE. This is the final straw with gigabyte for me, I shouldn't have bought another board from them I guess I will just return this one.

Other Thoughts: Advertised 8 sata ports but 2 are esata
Heat sinks are mounted with good metal bolts compared to plastic stubs that are normally used. Still no linux drivers

1 out of 5 eggs Great heat sink impossible to install 09/27/2013

This review is from: GELID Solutions GC-VGA02-01 1 Ball, 1 Sleeve VGA Cooler

Pros: There is a noticeable increase in heatpipes and aluminium compared to the stock cooler on my 560ti which would probably been of great help.

Cons: As of right now I've spent around 3-4 hours trying to install this thing. the heatsink is self is rather easy, but any of the other vrm heat sinks / ram heat sinks are just stupidly impossible to install. Just when you think that you've got all the heatsinks attached you turn it up side down to do a test and half of them fall right off. Not to mention pulling the two sided tape(is it even tape I though to be tape it had to be sicky) apart without folding the tape back onto itself is basically impossible. Depening which card you are using this for you may have some extra considering these things probably cost like 0.01$ they should give you a load extra. I've run out with about 3-4 pieces that fall of when i put the card into the pci slot. I'm not even goint to atempt to move the case. I don't see how something like this got through development, why not get stronger tape like I'm probably going to return this card because I don't have the time to go and find actually adhesive non-conductive tape. I can't explain how disappointed with their product.

Also, no where either on newegg or on their site do they mention that this is a 3 slot cooler, while this is not a problem for me, it is something that needs to be mentioned as the assumption would be that it is a standard 2 slot cooler.
