Arctic Silver 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound AS5-3.5G
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Best stuff out there.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I will only ever use this. Under no circumstances should you ever use the stuff comes with any of your stuff. Not exactly my words, my tech head brother told me. Hasnt pointed me wrong yet.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Handles pretty much everything I throw at it. As a pretty avid gamer, I use one monitor for games, and the other for movies / music etc. Zero lag ever.

That said, I know next to nothing about CPU's.

Get a good chip, keep it cool, keep it powered = winning.

Cons: Nothing yet. Still runs. I expect I wont need to upgrade for awhile.

Other Thoughts: What I did notice is that this chip runs slightly warmer than my previous one. Using an after market heat sync. Suggest anyone who builds their own rig to splurge on a decent heat sync, as the one it came with was joke. I wouldnt even let my wife use it.

ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Well put together. Love the bios of this. Simple ,and easy to use. The book that came with it was helpful as well.

Cons: No cons yet. Works as advertised.

Other Thoughts: Please notice the tech level!

Encountered the always lovely BSOD. It was due to memory timers being off. Not a big, as the fix was quite simple, something to look out for though.

Since this is only 1 of 2 higher end AMD boards on Newegg, I wish there was more of a selection to look through, as I would of paid a bit more if needed.

Bottom line: Board is great. Does what I need it to do, and is dumb easy for someone to work with. Highly recommend this for a first timers build.
