Pros: Best bang for the buck APU in the Trinity line. Runs cool, has 256 video cores, low watt usage, total power consumption of my rig is 55 watts.
This CPU matches the Phenom 965 in Ghz, has built in video, and runs cooler by 30 watts, for only $10.00 more. I can play all my DX 9.0 games just fine. For heavier gaming buy a card and Crossfire system.
Cons: No, you can't play heavy games on it, but it handles the five common tasks of the internet-Facebook, Youtube, Netflix, Skype, and email-just fine. Office work would probably put half the cores to sleep. Save your money and get a dual core APU for that.
Other Thoughts: My rig:
Asus A55FM2 board
Antec 835 series 2 Workstation case.
OCZGameExtreme 600 watt PSU
Thermaltake K8 Silent Boost CPU cooler
Seagate 160 gig HDD
Generic DVD Burner.
2 80 mm Enermax cooling fans
Power draw via UPS monitoring software- 55 watts. Running 24/7.
Pros: Solid, stable board for someone building a general purpose computer. Running 24/7 without hiccup since purchase.
This board has all video connections in their own housing, many boards in this price range do not.
Cons: I/O backplate gave me grief, ended up bending the tangs between the VGA and DVI ports straight out in order to get the board mounted in the backplate.
VGA connector flexes more than I would like.
Other Thoughts: Would not recommend this board for A!0 cpus even though Asus website states it will run them. It only has a 4 pin CPU power connector. You should buy a board with an 8 pin connector, if running a K series Trinity or the 65 watt A 10, to ensure enough power to the cores.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Team F108 32GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive (Golden) Model TG032GF108N3
Pros: Metal Casing, LED's show activity, Way cheaper than an SSD or hard drive for an emergency hard drive, and file storage purposes.
Cons: None yet.
Other Thoughts: Currently using this as a hard drive running Ubuntu 12.10, on a back up computer. Speedy enough for internet, file transfers, the usual stuff. Can you run games on it?. No, but it can keep you up and running in an emergency, when your new rig has bad ram, and you have to wait three weeks for a replacement from Newegg. Buy it!. Need more room?. Buy the 64 gig.READ FULL REVIEW
