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

Pros: -CHEAP
-Despite technically having only 3 physical cores (3 modules, 2 cores per module), acts like a hexa-core CPU. Very nice for multi threaded applications. Sometimes can compete with Intel Core i5 CPUs that cost more than 2X itself.
-8MB of L3 cache help gaming performance
-Overclockable, some of gone higher than 5GHz.
-Less than 100W TDP despite old manufacturing process
-When paired with a nice GPU, graphical performance will be so amazing it will burn your eyes out

Cons: -Runs hot with stock heatsink when gaming. Great for frying eggs. Otherwise, it just gets a little warm.
-Despite being overclockable, some chips require a lot of voltage tweaks and beefy coolers to do the job. Usually a Hyper 212 Evo is enough to surpass 4.0GHz without adjusting voltage but your milage may vary.

Other Thoughts: Oh my glob. I paid $100 USD for this part when it was on a special sale way back months ago. I could have payed $20 more of a 4th gen Core i3 from Intel, and I'm glad I didn't. While rendering content using Sony Vegas or even Movie Maker (Ew) it works like a charm. It's a very fast little chip. Gaming is great. CPU bound titles such as Minecraft will run amazingly well, Minecraft hitting upwards of 400 FPS with normal Render distance and everything maxed out. When playing online, the chip can handle a large amount of work at once and barely ever lags or can't take the heat. With my Hyper 212 Evo, Temps top out at 41 Degrees Celsius even when Turbo Boosting to 3.8GHz. Overall, for $100, I'm getting blazing fast speeds in everything I do. 10 Outta 10, would recommend

SteelSeries Siberia v2 3.5mm Connector Circumaural Full-size Headset - White
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Lightweight
-Comes in a lot of color options
-Decent microphone
-Unlike the KrakenPro from Razer, does not need extension cable to use mic

Cons: -Cheap plastic construction
-Mic is quiet until you adjust settings in Windows
-Headband cannot be manually adjusted, SteelSeries gets to decide how the headset fits, not the consumer.
-Very little clamping force, sound leaks and bass is really week.
-Circular ear cups, might bother some people
-Pretty weird looking, not the best for public use unless you don't care about aesthetic

Other Thoughts: These headphones were a gift and I only use them to be nice, but also because I'm broke and can't afford to buy a standalone mic and the Kraken Forged that I want. Anyway, if I could, I'd use something else. The build of these headphones is cheap and pretty bad. The plastic creaks when worn and it gets old very quickly. The headband will fit however it wants to, so if you don't have the perfect head, good luck. Due to the loose headband, a lot of sound is lost and bass is very week. Mids are nice but highs are pretty muffled and bad. The headset is decently comfy, but the earcups get very very hot after a few hours. I find myself removing one cup at a time to cool an ear off. The microphone is clear and crisp, but out of the box is inaudible and picks up breathing as if it is magnetically attracted to the mic. It's alright for a headset but not a headset that usually costs about $100. I was pretty disappointed with these cans. I don't understand the popularity since they're really not all that good.
