AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

4 out of 5 eggs Great processor for a great price. 12/02/2011

This review is from: AMD FX-6100 Zambezi 3.3GHz Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6100WMGUSBX

Pros: Price, SUPER easy to OC. Pushed to over 4GHz on air at 45c under load.

New technology is refreshing, even if it's not the best available.

Cons: Combined with 990FXA MoBo and Radeon 6970, but no achievement... I feel deceived.

Other Thoughts: BUY A DECENT FRIGGIN COOLER! Using the stock cooler would be like installing a turbocharger and turning down the boost. IE: a total waste. If OCing seems too complicated, do your research or quit and buy a mac.

AMD for the win! Not the best, but buying the best nowadays means bending over and taking it from a certain company. Have fun with that when you can't comfortably sit down in a few years.

MSI 990FXA-GD80 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Easily the best MoBo out there for an AMD machine. 12/02/2011

This review is from: MSI 990FXA-GD80 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Gorgeous, functional, onboard CPU temp monitor, USB 2.0/3.0 everywhere, 4x PCI-E x16!!!!

It's blue, it's really really blue.

Cons: Bios likes to set everything to "Auto" without any indication of what anything is actually set to. Auto works well enough but it made setting my memory timings a pain.

Also, combined with FX-6100 and Radeon 6970, but still haven't unlocked the Scorpius achievement. :(

Other Thoughts: This board was super easy to work with. Booted right up with my AM3+ CPU with zero issue. Will likely buy from MSI in the future.

My rig:
This board, duh.

HIS IceQ H697QM2G2M Radeon HD 6970 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Blue, different looking, easily the strongest part of my system, runs SC II and Skyrim with ease on Ultra.

Cons: None, maybe the size? Meh, I like huge cards.

Other Thoughts: Extremely pleased with purchase, will probably crossfire when price drops.

Averages 60+ fps in SC II and 30+ in Skyrim, but lets be real here, that's my CPU's fault.
