ARCTIC Alpine 64 Pro Rev. 2 CPU Cooler - AMD, Supports Multiple Sockets 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: +Cheap.
+Better than stock.
+Looks nice.
+MX-2 paste pre-applied. (Good stuff)

Cons: -Only a bit better than stock.
-Heatsink hovers about 1mm above my ram. (Kind of expected this... small Mobo.)
-Was a PITA to install, but also expected this.

Other Thoughts: I really don't suggest OCing FX CPUs with this. Handles OC'd Athlons just fine though.

MSI A88X-G43 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A88X (Bolton D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This thing is absolutely gorgeous compared to every other mobo I've ever owned. Also, it powered on! More than I can say about TWO Biostar mobos that I've purchased. Has every modern convenience you could possibly need...

Cons: It didn't cuddle me afterwards.

Other Thoughts: All shenanigans aside, if you need a mobo for an Athlon X4 750K/760K or Kaveri, I recommend this one at full force. If you're going straight Trinity/Richland APU... you may as well just buy this anyway.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5450 DirectX 11 100292DDR3L 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: She loves it. It does exactly what she needed it for. Indie gaming, emulation, and spreadsheets. Handles basic tasks and streaming like a champ.

Cons: Nobody makes me breakfast. :(

Other Thoughts: I told her not to... I WARNED her, but she installed Skyrim. It actually doesn't do horribly at the widescreen 480 resolution that I never knew about... She doesn't care if the game looks like a youtube video from 2004.

I'm gonna get her an HD87XX whenever they decide to come about.
