ASRock FM2A55M-VG3+ FM2+ 95W / FM2 100W AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

AMD A8-6600K Richland Quad-Core 3.9 GHz Socket FM2 100W AD660KWOHLBOX Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8570D
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -good speed
-quad core
-overclocks well (use bios though software doesn't know much about apus)
- 30 fps on 720p benchmark
-cheap system builds and htpc's would make good use of this

Cons: - thought graphics might be a little more powerful
- fm2 doesn't support pci-e 3.0 on most mobo's
- no winning lotto numbers
-with the limited graphics you have to ask yourself if going into the fx line 6300 or even getting a x4 750k and graphics card would be a wiser move if you spent a few extra dollars more total in the combo of cpu+gpu individual
- price for dual core a6-6400 is 60-ish is the step up worth it?

RAIDMAX Blade ATX-298WBP Black Steel / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: big case, good design, still trying to figure out how to take my faceplate off and install a front fan though...

Cons: horrible power supply!!!!!!!! seriously! it sparked and started my couch on fire! thankfully i was around to smack it out!!! smelt so horrible in that psu after that that I had to throw it away.

cables were not long enough either.

Other Thoughts: four stars since i like the case...but horrible psu NEVER AGAIN will i trust a psu bought with a case from Raidmax.
