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

Pros: -- Unlocked!
-- Only 125W usage
-- 8-cores really cuts loading and waiting times down by a lot, more than likely your computer will be waiting on you!

Cons: -- It runs hot, but not hot to the point where you will wreck anything, just hot enough to where you should consider upgrading to a aftermarket cooler (fan cooled works great for this)

Other Thoughts: Windows calculated this (without altering it) in the Index as a 7.7 out of 7.9, really not too shabby seeing as how other higher-end processors wont be going much higher for now. You will have zero regrets getting this, it will turn your rig into a powerhouse.

Rosewill R5 Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Case, comes with 2 x front fans, Fan Controller, USB2.0 & USB3.0 front ports, Removable top and lower front filter panels
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: -- HUGE amount of space
-- the 3 fans it comes with turns this case into a pretty quiet wind tunnel
-- Nice cable management
-- Convenient filters on the bottom and foam filters on the front and top, makes this into a pretty clean case when in use
-- Really useful fan control knob for the 3 fans it comes with. Move your fans around to make the most out of this feature!
-- Liquid Cooling Ready

Cons: -- I literally scoured this entire case before AND after I built my rig. The only thing I could possibly mark as a Con, would be that its size might be impressive, but also could mean problems for the space concerned buyer, as it sticks out farther and taller than your average Mid-ATX

Other Thoughts: This case is a lifesaver for me as I like to tinker and add-on to my build. The added space helps for sight and really saves a bunch of time concerning yourself over size specifications for your internal parts. You might not have as much room overall for cable management, but at least you will find comfort in knowing that a vast majority of any part with wiring, will certainly reach its destination.

My first build case and I couldn't be happier!

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

5 out of 5 eggs Heavy-duty pickup truck, in the shape of a Motherboard 03/03/2014

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: -- Works really cool
-- Looks neat
-- Lots of fancy features!
-- Really easy UEFI Bios to work with
-- SLI compatible

Cons: -- Memory slots are a bit wonky to work with (try putting memory in first, just is easier that way)
-- CPU and RAM slots just might be a bit too close (check other thoughts)

Other Thoughts: This board was built for the TUF gamers in mind. Not only is it pretty hardcore looking, it is really durable and heavy, so you know you are getting a well-built board. Sheds heat really well so you can concentrate your cooling equipment on more delicate and heat bearing components.

My only MAJOR concern (and might not even be that big of a deal to you), would be how close the CPU and RAM slots are. If you use stock heatsinks for your CPU, then you wont have much of a problem. Although if you go for Aftermarket fan coolers, then depending on which way you position it, you might cover up your closest RAM slot. Then again, if you make do with your normal 2 stick RAM configuration, you will have zero problems whatsoever with this setup

My very first build and I could not have chosen a better board! Price is a bit steep, but you are paying for quality parts.
