AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor FD8320FRHKBOX
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Great overclocker. Got it to 4.4GHz easy.
-Is capable. For $150 you get solid gaming performance and fantastic rendering/video editing/multitasking performance. Great for streamers or content creators.
-Stock heatsink is beefy, if the fan wasnt so useless, it would be a good cooler.

Cons: -Is hot. Get a nice air cooler or an AIO. Running it with an H100i and I see temps that reach 55-58C (under a heavy overclock). The max for this CPU is around 60C. Stock speeds will obviously yield cooler temps but I would definitely not skimp on a cooler for this one.
-Based on what we've been hearing, this AM3 and AM3+ socket is dying out in favor of FM2 and FM2+. If you want to upgrade to whatever AMD has in store you'll probably need a new motherboard too. Futureproofing shouldnt be your object when buying this anyways, it is not exactly brand new.
-Single core performance is pretty laughable. Compared to the athlon 750k, it is not much better in that aspect. If you're looking for single core performance go intel.

Other Thoughts: Good processor for a budget-minded build. Also a good overclocker, and decent gamer. Wouldn't recommend anything else for a $150 budget.

CM Storm QuickFire TK - Compact Mechanical Gaming Keyboard with CHERRY MX Brown Switches and Fully Backlit
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Great clicky feel without too heavy of an actuation point, perfect for both gaming and typing.
-Has a tenkeyless design that still includes a numberpad. I use a numpad frequently and I still get the functionality I need at the size i want. Fantastic.
-Keyboard is solid and well built, especially for this price point. From the rubber feet being absolutely rock solid, to the entire thing having pretty much 0 flex, this keyboard gives you more than what you pay for in terms of build quality.
-Spacebar feels very solid and balanced.
-4 Lighting modes. Off, WASD, all on, and pulsating.
-Lights are bright and look good. Even in a fully lit room the white lights look fantastic. The glow effect is very cool.
-Braided cable, with cable management that goes left, straight or right. Beautiful feature. You can unplug the USB cable for easy transport.
-Comes with a keycap remover.

Cons: -The double 0 key (00) on the numpad threw me off but its pretty easy to get over it.
-It doesnt do my laundry. Or pay my bills.

Other Thoughts: Fantastic keyboard. CM delivers fantastic quality for a fantastic price.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW)  High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -It looks good.
-It cools a processor reasonably well in push/pull.

Cons: -Performs about the same as an air cooler that is half the price.

Other Thoughts: Its not a BAD cooler at all. But unless you dont mind paying an extra 40 bucks for aesthetics, go buy an air cooler.
