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

Pros: i runs this at stock speeds, no turbo, on water cool setup (h60) at 1.29 volts stable. max temp i see the socket get under heavy load is 40C, use it in a gaming rig that also does heavy multitask and audio editing. had the FX-6300 but this is CPU does better with RAM speed and way faster and stays around the same temp (6300 under load did 38C on same setup)

Cons: depending on Mobo, and cooler setup, can be a pain to make it stable and cool if you don't want to go below 4ghz. but that's obvious. sometimes when you do over clock, the temp sensor can go crazy showing a max temp blip of 255C. does it in every 990/970 MoBo i try....

Other Thoughts: have this CPU in a GigaByte 990FXA-UD3 with 8 gigs 1866 G skill ram and twin 550 Ti's. i run 3 screens, no hicups. you can Bog this CPU down with single threaded stuff, but when it multitasks it performs...

EVGA 01G-P3-2616-KR GeForce GT 610 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: for just desktop applications and maybe some light gaming (old games, not BF or COD or whatever). uses almost no power and makes no heat (idles at 77f, which is room temp). doesn't add an extra screen to bios when starting up the computer. works fine....

Cons: fan can get loud, thats about it....

Other Thoughts: you CAN play some games with it if you want but you can cook the GPU... old skool stuff in dx7 and some Source engine games will work. i can play fallout NV on low settings with 40FPS, but the card is cooking at 180 degrees F

Thermaltake SMART Series SP-650PCBUS 650W ATX 12V 2.3 SLI CrossFire 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: was not DOA. cables are long enough to stretch thru a Tower case. quiet and smells like fresh other Thermaltake PSU that everyone complains about (tr-2 600w) is still alive after 5 years and that thing is cheaply made. this PSU has some weight and good components.....

Cons: there was a loose piece of plastic floating around inside (probably a cut-out for the fan air guide) BUT i know to check every PSU for something like that (i've seen the wire sleeves not trimmed and hitting the fan on fancier PSUs)

Other Thoughts: i mainly use Antec and sometimes Corsair PSUs...but for the price/watt range.... i rolled the dice and got a good PSU
