Antec EarthWatts Green EA-380D Green 380W Continuous power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Quiet. Don't hear the fan much. Stable power, no issues at all.
I bought this power supply from second-hand web auction site but I was impressed and wanted to leave a review. I installed this in my stepson's computer and it's powering an Intel Q6600, a Radeon HD5750 (1xpcie power connector is on this harness), as well as the LED case fans and other components in the build. He is a light gamer, usually playing Steam games and he has had absolutely no issues in the 6 months that he has had it. This is a very good power supply and I will seriously consider it for my next build, an APU dual-graphics build for my wife.

Cons: None yet.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Good multitasking processor that is more than capable for any game out there to be played at the highest settings when paired with a good GPU (or 2). Stupidly easy to overclock, and even with a windowed game playing with streaming and internet windows open in the background or on second screen never seems to slow down.

Cons: Stock cooler is loud even at stock speeds. While overclocking on this processor is common (free performance), even if not overclocking I would recommend an aftermarket cooler. Overclocking is COMPLETELY NOT RECOMMENDED ON STOCK COOLER.

Other Thoughts: I originally owned an FX8320, which died under warranty. AMD was kind enough to upgrade me to an FX8350, which has been in my gaming computer for almost two years now. I currently use a Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo, and the CPU runs at 4.5ghz with a maximum load temp of 58c. I have played every game in my steam library with this CPU, and coupled with two R9-280s I am playing nearly every game at the absolute maximum settings. I have only good things to say about this processor, and barring any unforeseen issues, I should be happily gaming on it for at least a few more years.

XFX Black Edition Double D Radeon R9 280 R9-280A-TDBD 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Plays any game out there wonderfully at very good settings. I only play @ 1080p, so i cannot speak for any higher resolutions. I recently bought another for crossfire, and two of these bad boys coupled with a nice CPU (FX8350) make for a really good gaming experience. Most of my games support Crossfire with good scaling (Witcher 3, I'm waiting...) and the XFX cards have the nicest looking designs out there as far as the R9 series cards go. I have yet to see either card go above 75c, even at 100% utilization on both cards, so the cooling solutions are definitely working. And I don't hear the fans, both cards are still quieter than the Cougar Vortex PWM fans on my Hyper212 Evo CPU cooler.

Cons: Not with the actual product, just with the "rebate". I sent a clear copy of all items required for the rebate including invoice and box UPC, only to have them tell me that my rebate was refused because my original invoice was not legible. I printed it straight off Newegg! It's not like it was a handwritten receipt, how was it illegible??? I had a high opinion of XFX up until this point, but now I'm starting to think that they are the same as all the other companies out there. Offer a mail in rebate to get you to buy their product, and then do anything possible to avoid have to pay out said rebate. We will see who I decide to buy my next video card from....
