Pros: Heat Spreader

Cons: 8-8-8-24.

Other Thoughts: I would of preferred faster RAM but at the time when I purchased this, it was less than $50 for the pair... so it was a cost limitation as I could not afford the higher faster RAM I wanted. I have oc'd the ram to boost the speed but luckily if it wasn't for the heat spreader the dang thing easily hits high 90's celcius. I run a Corsair H60 system with 4 case fans (2x140mm & 2x120mm), in a gaming case with mesh on all sides. Plus a GTX610 2Gb video card (oc'd from stock 810 to 1024mHz). The overall internal heat from all sources including the RAM is average 32 celcius when the air conditioning is turned on and set for 24C.

5 out of 5 eggs Onboard Anti-surge protection ROCKS!!! 08/11/2014

This review is from: Asus M5A78L-M LX3 Desktop Motherboard - AMD 760G Chipset - Socket AM3+

Pros: Anti-surge protection,

Cons: As an Asus mini board I would hope it had more fan headers and better spacing between the onboard components to take a wider variety of after market heat sinks and fan/pump combo.

Other Thoughts: My older style condominium often has power spikes and interruptions which are often not enough to trip my surge protected power bar, but enough to interrupt the computer so it reboots. The on-board anti-surge protection is quick and fail safe.

AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5GHz (4.1GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W Desktop Processor FD6300WMHKBOX

Pros: Default speed is 3.5 with 4.1 in turbo mode, Black Edition rocks. I currently have it clocked in at 4.8 stable and using an older liquid cooler (H50) my max temp is only 43C while gaming (max resolution and FPS in Skyrim) and 28C in idle mode - results are not typical overclock results as PSU, Mobo, and after market coolers may vary.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: No stock cooler was EVER meant to handle any sort of overclocking and reading other people's complaints about how the stock cooler sucks is quite amusing. This hex-core when paired up with the right mobo gives lightning speed and low power consumption for the price of low end quad-cores. I tried 4.81 and it became unstable in my rig, but am quite happy getting 4.8 on a 3.5 chip.
