Cooler Master Elite 120 Advanced - Mini-ITX Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Long Graphics Card Support - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I bought this case because the previous case (Antec ISK 300-150) was too small; cable management was impossible, as was effective airflow. In addition, because of the numerous reviews of the AMD A10-5800K which stated that the supplied heatsink was less than satisfactory, I thought it prudent to purchase an aftermarket heatsink (Zalman), which would not fit into the old case. This case has much better airflow, it allows for a standard PSU, and my aftermarket heatsink fits like a glove.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Recommended for its small size, accomodations for a standard PSU, and increased airflow capability for a mITX case.

SeaSonic M12II 620 Bronze 620W ATX12V V2.3 / EPS 12V V2.91 SLI Ready 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I bought this PSU because it was fully modular, and this would be going in a mITX case; I needed to keep necessary cabling to a minimum so management would be at least possible. SeaSonic is highly regarded, although this is my first encounter with them and with a modular PSU. Things are working out fine thus far, and I have no complaints!

Cons: There are none which I can identify. This unit is doing what it is supposed to, provide clean,stable power with a minimum of cables.

Other Thoughts: My compliments to SeaSonic for their quality PSUs, and Newegg for their excellent selection and service.

AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D AD580KWOHJBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Still operating like a champ. I compiled a kernel, and the sucker was *fast*. Compiling the modules part of the kernel (for those not in the know, that includes all of the drivers one might need for one's hardware) usually takes over an hour on my HP Pavilion dv7-7227cl laptop, with its 2.3 GHz quad core processors (A10-4500). I put the 'time' command in front of the 'make modules' and after compiling had finished, it was a mere 20 minutes, a third of what it took previously, if not less. Amazing! I am very pleased with this purchase, and look forward to what else I can do with this extremely capable processor!

Cons: Of course, the price would drop $20 *after* I bought it. Thanks, Newegg. I could have used that $20 elsewhere. No dings here, though. That's the nature of technology; price drops are frequent. It doesn't help that it occurred when it did. That's Murphy's Law for you. :(

Other Thoughts: None other than what I stated above. I will state for the record, however, that you will read many reviews stating that the stock heatsink is junk. These people would have you believe that AMD is cheating you on the heatsink part; they should have gotten you a better part!

The truth is that the heatsink does what is advertised; it keeps the processor cool. I can state this with perfect honesty, because I run this processor in an Antec ISK 300-150. I added a case fan (It has room for two, and only one came with it), Without the second fan, I felt a lot of heat coming off the case; now, it's barely above room temperature. IMO, that's the ideal of a properly-cooled processor and case. All I'm saying is that you should read the reviews with a grain of salt. Don't believe everything you read.
