Pros: it worked for a week and "supports" the FX-8350.
Cons: it doesnt fully support the FX-8350. the first one i bought ran good for a week. then i started doing some work loads and appartently if you run a 125W CPU on this board at full load for more than a minute, the VRMs overheat and fail. burned out my processor. now i have to RMA that to AMD to get a replacement.
Other Thoughts: i was dumb enough, after the first one died, to buy another hoping it was just the board only to find out that it fried my processor as well. AVOID THIS BOARD WITH THE FX-8350!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
Pros: even with how i have it mounted(only half of it is actually exposed, long story) it still keeps my cpu under 100 at full load.
Other Thoughts: its a good cooler. just make sure your case can allow it to fully mount and do its job properlyREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: easy install, took the fx-8350 no problems,
Cons: only one full speed slot, limits me on my overclocking
Other Thoughts: overall good board. but the OC Genie II has a cpu protection that is on by default. i havent turned it off yet but with it on it still overclocked to 4.3Ghz on an 8350. not a huge overclock but i dont need much anyway.READ FULL REVIEW
