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

Pros: It has been a very solid CPU so far. With close to 4ghz and a quad core this can handle about anything.
The built on video will handle most games at medium (No AA) which is plenty for most people.
Can either pair with a 2nd medium GPU or just get a high end GPU later on.
the price of $100.00 makes it a lot easier on a budget build

Cons: The stock CPU Cooler isn't enough. Mine was running at 52 with a medium load.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend getting a liquid cooler or a better air cooler. (I used the one that came with my FX 8350 to save on cost)
This CPU is a great option for those on a budget that want to do gaming.
You can always add a high end video card to the computer for high end gaming.

MSI A78M-E45 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works well with 6000 series APU.
Worked well right out of the box, the UEFI bios works well.
Recognized my 1866 ram seeds right away.
3 year warranty is a nice touch for a sub $100.00 board
Didn't notice a difference between this or the 88 chipset version with what I use it for.
Temps stay cool.
Very stable

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: I paired this with an AMD A8-6600K and 8 gigs of Kingston HyperX Fury. It ran right off the bat with very little tweaking needed.

ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very Easy to overclock.
Has very functional UEFI BIOS which lets you go back to the standard look.
I bought this last fall and haven't had any issues.
Had no problems adjusting memory or CPU clock speeds
AI Suite II allows you to monitor and adjust you motherboard.
Very stable

Cons: Would rather have had more USBs instead of two PS/2 jacks but this is not a deal breaker.

Other Thoughts: Overall this is a very good MB, the con listed is something that was known before buying and is not an issue. This board is very stable and ASUS is very good about updating their bios.
