Pros: AMD chips are reasonably priced compared to Intel. This APU with the built in Radon graphics is an outstanding runner. I have built several systems using this chip with a cheap MSI motherboard. Coupled with a SSD and Windows 7 you got a winning combination
Cons: Like any AMD chip, they run hotter than Intel. Good cooling is a must.
Other Thoughts: Buy these when on sale and you got yourself a reasonably priced, fast running systemREAD FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BIOSTAR H61MGV3 LGA 1155 Intel H61 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Low cost. Poor lay out of power connector in relation with the DDR memory slots. Missing the back panel bracket to mount a standard Intel heat sink and fan. I don't understand why all these ppls have DOA MBs. I have been building multiple computer using all the vendors and never had a bad one from the box.
Cons: Lacking bracket as noted above. No mounting hardware: screws, etc.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Rexus PST-3 Digital Power Supply Tester with LCD
Pros: A quick test of a power supply. I use it on all computers I work on to quickly eliminate the PS as a source of a problem.
Cons: Tests voltage only....no load. I have run into a couple of power supplies that tested OK but failed under load. Had to buy another tester that put the PS under a simulated load.
Other Thoughts: Works 98% of the timeREAD FULL REVIEW
