AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8350FRHKBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This chip is fast, and for the speed, very cheap.

Cons: Runs hot.

Other Thoughts: Just wanted to know what other people are getting for a temp on this thing with normal heatsink??? I am looking at around 44C (on idle). Please respond with running temps.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL10S-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: This was part of a package deal, and would be great if it worked properly.

Cons: The only reason I knew the RAM was bad is because my video playback would freeze up about every 15-20 seconds. Windows memory test passed. When I went into the motherboard I turned the frequency of the RAM to the lowest setting and it worked quite a bit better (it would freeze up for a half a second every minute.... regardless I hope the next module is better, and if so I will re-rate

Other Thoughts: Just wanted to pass on the information if anyone else is having similar problems. Newegg has always been good to me, although I have received 2 defective parts in the last 2 months. :(

Seagate ST360005SHA10G-RK 6TB BlackArmor NAS 440 Network Storage Server
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: You can get it to work? If that is a pro.

Cons: Where to begin. I guess I will start by saying that new egg seems to have pulled all these from the store. Smart move. They would not work with basic western digital hard drives and I suspect any other drives (except designated seagate drives). When I did spend the big $$$ on the best drives that seagate could offer (one drive came to me defective) I did get it to function after using diskpart and cleaning the previous drive setup. The processor is very slow however and be prepared to wait.

Other Thoughts: Considering the speed of this setup, and the cost of the new drives (they cost a ton compared to other drives of the same size) cost wise you would be miles ahead if you built a media storage computer. I would say in the end I have sunk 900$ into drives and this device. You could get a really nice media computer for that, (with a much faster processor and better compatibility. STAY AWAY
