ASUS Desktop PC K30AD-US003O Pentium G3240 (3.1 GHz) 4 GB DDR3 1 TB HDD Intel HD Graphics Shared memory Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: ASUS quality! Good price ($319) for a basic computer, adequate for running most applications. Also, Windows 7 (64-bit) OS is a plus.

Cons: WARNING LABEL on rear case states that opening the case voids the warranty! Limited expansion options. Two available mobo slots: one PCIe-x16 and one PCIe-x4. One available slot for an extra HD or SSD. Two RAM slots (one available). No on board wireless.

Other Thoughts: To add wireless you either have to use an external USB wireless adapter, or, open the case (see warning) to add a wireless card. If you want to upgrade RAM, space if a bit cramped.

ARCTIC Freezer A11 CPU Cooler for AMD, 150W Cooling Capacity, 3 Direct Touch Heatpipes, <23dBA Fan Noise
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: See earlier review posted on 3/17/14.

Cons: As advertised, the Arctic Freezer A11 cooler is rated at "150W cooling capacity. I initially installed it for cooling an AMD A10-5800K CPU which is rated by the mfr at "100W." My CPU temps had begun to exceed 60 C with subsequent shutdowns. I have recently replaced the A11 cooler with another brand. Since replacement, my CPU temp has not exceeded 50 C, nor have I had any shutdowns.

Other Thoughts: The Arctic Freezer A11 cooler manufacturer does not specify the criteria used to establish the "150W Cooling Capacity." I can only say that, in my case, this cooler did not maintain my CPU temp in a range allowing for effective operation.

LEPA N Series N500-SA 500W ATX12V Power Supply

5 out of 5 eggs 03/29/2014

This review is from: LEPA N Series N500-SA 500W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: New Build: AMD A10 5800K 100watt CPU; ASUS F2 A85-V PRO Mobo; 8 GB Kingston HyperX 1600 DIMM. Crucial 240 GB SSD. Although mostly used for gaming, I haven't seen the need for a dedicated graphics card yet, but this PSU has ample reserve power if I decide to add one later. I've overclocked the system 24% and all the critical voltages are steady. The PSU fan is very quiet. Amply supplied with connectors. Construction just looks high quality, overall. For this price, I think it would be hard to beat.

Cons: None, so far, but I've only used it for a short time.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a PS to replace one in my gaming computer that blew (literally) during a power surge due to a faulty surge-supressing power strip. After installing the new PS, I found the Mobo was gone also, and possible other components as well. So, I decided to rebuild from scratch with all new components. I figured 500 watts was sufficient for the system I wanted but I didn't want to go "high end." I came across this PSU and it seemed to fill the bill.
