MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great durable and long lasting board 12/04/2015

This review is from: MSI 790FX-GD70 AM3 AMD 790FX ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: I've had this motherboard as my main PC for about 5 years now, running a Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition. Only problem I had was when first setting it up and found out it needs a good 500+ Watt power supply and ever since then, it's been solid as a rock. Currently dual booting Windows 10 and Slackware 14.1 and have two AMD 6950's in CrossfireX and still handles all I throw at it.

Cons: You can't get by with using a wimpy power supply with this motherboard.

Other Thoughts: I just need to get a Phenom II X6 1090T or greater now.

Cooler Master Vortex Plus - CPU Cooler with Aluminum Fins and 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Tower cooler features in a horizontal design. Less stress on the motherboard. Great cooler.

Cons: A bit difficult to get on, with the hang over. But with perseverance, you can do it and it will be WORTH IT!

Other Thoughts: All those broken pin comments, blame Intel for that design, notoriously ridiculous design, to make the cooler virtually snap on as a permanent fixture to your motherboard. It's a mess. Don't blame Cooler Master, place the blame where it belongs, on INTEL. You bought it, now live with the consequences of your purchase choice.

SeaSonic SS-350TGM Bulk 350W TFX12V (v2.31) 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - OEM

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs Completely unnecessary and uncomplimentary modular design 03/15/2015

This review is from: SeaSonic SS-350TGM Bulk 350W TFX12V (v2.31) 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply - OEM

Pros: Great efficiency and wattage for a TFX power supply.

Cons: I agree with Larry. and those who say it isn't helpful are not objective about this power supply. There is NO way to tell this will work without buying it and trying it and hoping this unconventional and proprietary and non-beneficial design will work for you. Buy at your own risk.

The modular design serves absolutely no purpose. Modular design is supposed to give different connection options. This modular design not does not provide any connection options from if it was hard wired, none whatsoever. There is either use the power supply with the modular connection or not at all. Those are the only two options: All the modular connection does is cause an unconventional design that can only restrict it's use. I agree with Larry, the power supply is noisy, has a constant buzzing sound and a modular connection that serves no purpose, provides no connection options any different than if it was hard wired.
