This review is from: AMD FX-8300 Vishera 8-Core 3.3 GHz Socket AM3+ 95W FD8300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
Pros: Runs much cooler with a H80i Than my 8320 with a H80i and overclocks higher than my 8320 at stock voltage. Mine runs at 20x without a increase in core voltage.
Cons: Box cooler might work alright on a dual core sempron. Leave it in the box.
Other Thoughts: Wish I would got another one instead of my 8320.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works great for older games and apps that need a 256 bit card. I use mine for personal video encoding on a modest system.
Cons: Had to send 1 back
Other Thoughts: Bought 3 of these. 2 for crossfire, and one for another machine. The third one had issues with the memory and I had to underclock it to 1225. I returned it and got the replacement. Same thing, but this time I decided to run VMT (Video Memtest) after running that one full cycle, which takes over 2hrs, it is now fine at default speeds. The Problem disappeared. SO I guess it just needed to be heated up. New memory of any kind sometimes needs to be stressed. The card is working perfectly now and I'm pleased.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Opened the box to find a brand new looking 6 year old laptop. Not a scratch or blemish on it. Plugged it in, booted it up, entered the activation key for the O/S and it works great
Cons: Not really a con but the 03/27/09 date coded battery is dead and won't charge. But for 62 bucks, I didn't expect perfection. Got a new one for 13 bucks and it fine.
Other Thoughts: Bought this for the garage to run OBD II diagnostics replacing my old and very slow pentium M laptop, but it's almost too nice.READ FULL REVIEW
