Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TLBD38G1600HC9DC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: It's two strips of DDR3 1600. Its got blue heat shields. It works.

Cons: The heat shields aren't red, which would match my mobo.

Other Thoughts: BLUE RAM!

4 out of 5 eggs Great board, running solid for 4+ months 04/17/2014

This review is from: BIOSTAR TA970 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Great board for building a gaming rig on a budget. Fired right up for me out of the box. No need to worry about popping caps with the solid ones on this board. Paired with a FX-6300, 16GB Team Vulcan 1600, xfire Radeon 7970's handles any game I throw at it.

Cons: BIOS is somewhat clunky. Overclocking is a bit of a chore. Two of the screw holes didn't line up with my case.

Other Thoughts: This is a full ATX board. If you have a micro tower it won't fit. It's cramed into my mid-tower pretty tight.

AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast, easy to overclock (but don't go past 4.1Ghz with the stock cooler!), competes with the Intel equivalent at half the price!

Cons: Stock cooler is kind of cheap...but easy enough to replace with an aftermarket one.

Other Thoughts: I paired this with a BioStar TA970 and saved some dough. Added 16GB of Vulcan DDR3 1600 and CrossFire Radeon 7970's (2GB vRAM each). Goes into full beastmode on any game I throw at it.
