3 out of 5 eggs You've Gotta Be An AMD Fanboy To Love This 08/26/2013

This review is from: AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX

Pros: Inexpensive.
Easy to overclock.
If you blow it up, you're not out much dough.

Cons: It can barely squeak past a Core i3 in the same price range while using way more power.

Other Thoughts: I build a few gaming systems every year, and decided to check out an all AMD build. Was not really surprised that there was no real cost savings overall for a power hog with sub-par performance.
Hopefully, I'll find an AMD fanboy to take this off my hands.

Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TLD38G1600HC9DC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: About 5 bucks cheaper than good RAM?

Cons: Will not boot my Asrock 970 Extreme4 motherboard when timings are set to 1600 using XMP profile.
Randomly crashes Windows 8 when run at 1333.
Poor WEI memory score.

Other Thoughts: To be fair, there just may be a compatibility issue with this motherboard. Replaced with Kingston Hyper X Blue 1600 and problems went away.
I spent quite a bit of time and effort (plus money for good RAM) to find that this cheap RAM was killing my new gamer.
If you want stability and speed, look elsewhere.

RAIDMAX RX-450K Continuous 450 watts ATX 12V v2.3/EPS 12V Raidmax RX-450K Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: You get what you pay for sometimes.
In this instance - junk.

Other Thoughts: Ordered 3/10/2013. Died 4/11/2013. Used in a low power system with AMD 65 watt CPU and 50 watt GPU. Just one day past Newegg's 30 day refund/replacement window. Not worth the effort and expense to RMA with RAIDMAX so lesson learned: read the reviews and trust the experience of others. Note to self: Never purchase a RAIDMAX product again.
