Pros: Have had this fine cpu running 4.6 ghz for over three years now with an H80 water cooler. Originally paired with a 7950 gpu, then with a 290 reference. For 1080p gaming the 8350 can't be beat, especially with the shift in DX12 to multithreaded optimization - it will be a few years before the potential of this cpu is taken advantage of. The 8350 is the definition of future proof.
Cons: It might outlive me.
Other Thoughts: Buy it now. Best cpu ever, even greater than the Q6600 was in its own time.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I purchased this model at Fries (newegg doesn't allow the real name) based in the price and reputation of the brand. Mine was built in 2014 and is 80+ Bronze certified, and has been updated for Haswell compatibility. I don't know if Newegg is selling old inventory but the current version of this is much improved.
Cons: Newegg might be selling the older version of this pus.
Other Thoughts: Using this with a power hungry setup - 8350 overclocked, r9 290 gpu, 4 hard drives, water cooler and half a dozen fans. If this supply can handle my setup, it can handle any Intel single gpu system guaranteed, multi card systems who knows but 700w is usually plenty on a single 12v rail psu.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Full featured, looks nice, on board numerical LED display that shows mobo codes and temperature. BIOS is well laid out, simple to overclock. Plenty of I/O, and generally very stable.
Cons: None, it's a simple board plenty good enough for a gaming or multimedia build. If you spend more money you can get more BIOS features, a bit better voltage regulation for extreme overclocking, not much else.
Other Thoughts: Very highly recommend Biostar, I have done AMD builds with their boards as well and they are very stable and well designed.READ FULL REVIEW
