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

Pros: -great voltage (stock on 1.29v stable)(pushed 140-160w on 1.35v @ 4.69Ghz stable)-Prime tested
-Very nice response times and handles any thing you can throw at it multitask wise and runs games amazingly if tweaked right(of course with a mid-level to high end GPU setup)

Cons: -Reached DCHP thermal barrier at rated speed above
-It can crank out some wattage
-it capped at 61C CPU an 71C MB Socket (Sabertooth 990FX R 2
-Heatsink Spire thermax Eclipse V3(There is a bad spot on the lower left corner where it is slightly grooved and think the core that does fail on Prime is under that spot, had a slightly grittier and deeper surface for a 1/4in)(Cant wait to close loop system and could def get 5.0Ghz+ on right setups)

Other Thoughts: Am very pleased with this chip and the performance I received with it
No real complaints heat is always the limit of any performance PC part

LG Black 14X BD-R 2X BD-RE 16X DVD+R 5X DVD-RAM 12X BD-ROM 4MB Cache SATA BDXL Blu-ray Burner, Bare Drive, 3D Play Back (WH14NS40) - OEM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Great burner for price (especially on sale for $40-50)
-stable burning quality at high write speed
-sleek looking with raised LG emblem for and curve over button for a one piece no button look

Cons: I don't really have any complaints about the drive itself and use it sparingly, so can't say about constant burning reliablity
I will say it OEM only comes with a bare bone drive which knew when buying but heads up if needing sata cable(s)

Other Thoughts: I have burned a few blu rays and dvds to see if it would do complete burn of media with no "hiccup" or skips and so far has done amazing an is the first burner ive ever owned that hasn't had any issues burning at max speed

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

4 out of 5 eggs Finally a review on the board after dealing with Asus 02/03/2014

This review is from: ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: -DirectBIOS button with software (send straight to BIOS from boot or OS)
-MemOK Button great tool for OC'ing RAM and verifying if RAM is the issue or not
-High RAM support along with Intel XMP support
-POST cylce LEDs on CPU/RAM/PCIE and PSU LED indicator(Helps tremendously on verifying which part of POST is failing if OC fails
-The product itself lives up to the TUFF component(check other thoughts)
-Only military color theme motherboard available to date
-The BIOS is amazing as far as being able to fine tune and has average voltage increments as small as 0.00625 for major overclocking components
-Quad SLI/Crossfire support and true 16x PCI-E two-way SLI/Crossfire
-DIGI-Power is a very nice add-on an not seen on other board yet and is very convenient on fine tuning CPU and RAM and making a very fluid system
-good high-quality components

Cons: the board itself was impressive and I do love it and has done everything I've wanted thus far but had to deal with Asus RMA on first faulty board and it was a nightmare with their techs and customer service.

Other Thoughts: Ok I left 2 reviews warning of Asus' business practice and the poor quality I recieved from their customer service and poor refurbished quality and after multiple calls and even a fail by a manager, I fixed the board myself. I was sent a damaged refurbished board and sent back for repair and got same board back with same problem and that was after dealing with a manager and escalation. Well the damage was water based and could smell the lysol from the wipe used to clean the board and board would not recognize multi-cores so after 3 rubbing alcohol baths and a fine tooth comb over I finally got the board to recognize multi-core and run correct. Won't ever buy Asus again do to this experience but the board itself went through 2 shipping process' and alcohol bath with 3 or aftermarket heatsink installations and still runs like a champ so it is definitely TUFF
