  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Can power a lot of stuff and come's with a variety of cables. When under light load, it's dead silent since the fans if off.

Cons: Really loud when under heavy load. Don't know if its normal.

Other Thoughts: Its so loud under load that if i knew it before hand I wouldn't have bought it.

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: Great CPU for the price, if you plan to use multithreaded applications, this CPU will perform almost as well as an I7.

Cons: Use a lot of power and the CPU can get really hot. The stock cooler works well but if your computer is in a small room like me it can get hot really fast (Not the CPU, but the actual room). It lose a lot of performance when you use single threaded applications (slower than a I5).

Other Thoughts: The fact that it use a lot of power vs an I5 could mean that you won't save any money (because of the electrical bill). However, i did not make any calculations. The best tip i could give any potential buyer's is to inform themselves. This product will work wonders on multithreaded applications because of it's 8 cores, but slows down a lot in single threaded one's. So it all depend on the kind of software you will be using! If you're a gamer, keep in mind that most games, are single threaded right now but a lot of multithreaded games are coming in the near future because of the new consoles (which are all 8 cores, except the wii u). Games like BF4 for example are optimized and mutithreaded for 8 cores. The vishera will perform great on these games. Look at BF4 CPU benchmarks vs older games benchmarks and you will see what i mean.

Fractal Design Define R4 Black Pearl w/ USB 3.0 ATX Mid Tower Silent PC Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I was really impressed by the quality of the product! There's a lot of space for a medium tower (up to 8 hdd's) and it can accommodate really long GPU's. Keep in mind however that you might have to remove the upper hdd cage to fit some of the longer GPU's. The two 140mm fan's are dead silents and my case temperature never goes over 40 degrees celcius. There's also a lot of space behind the motherboard plate to put SSD's and to do cable management. Great if you like simplistic designs that doesn't glow and look like ET's space ship!

Cons: The front panel USB's are a bit scary because you have to apply a lot of pressure to insert USB devices. Also, you need to remove the motherboard if you want to instal SSD's on the backplate. That's just a minor complaint however since you can still install them on the HDD cage.
