XFX Radeon RX 480 DirectX 12 RX-480M8BBA6 8GB 256-Bit DDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Black Edition Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I purchased to OC XFX 1328 8gig version
Powerful, doubled my 3Dmark Firestrike Score, quiet and runs very cool
Furmark got it to 83 C
Shattered my R9 270X's scores and brought me up to Nvidia 970/980 specs

Cons: I had to wait so long to purchase this card

Other Thoughts: System Specs: Raidmax Vampire Case
XSPC 750 240 MM Cooling system (H20)
16 Gigs Gskill Ripjaws 2133 memory
MSI 970 Gaming Board
XFX Black Edition RX480
AMD FX8350 @ 4.51 Gz
Creative Labs SB Z
Samsung Pro850 500 Gig SSD

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

Pros: The performance of this processor is excellent, specifically from a cost standpoint. I could have spent another 300 bucks or so and gotten marginally better performance from the Company with no Corporate SOUL, but I choose NOT to do business with liars and cheats.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am just waiting for Zen to come out, at which point I will turn this system into my HTPC/Server. 8 cores, 16 threads of SMT goodness. I've been waiting for this processor for 3 years! New mainboard, new processor, new DDR4 Memory.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11Q-16GBZL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This memory has been flawless, I researched it prior to purchasing. Upgraded from 8 gigs of DDR3 1600 mz Gskill Trident Memory. The memory takes a decent overclock, currently running at 2.3 gz, on standard timings. Stability is refreshing.

Cons: No cons to date

Other Thoughts: I would highly recommend Gskill higher end series to anyone. The Gskill Trident memory is pretty much the fastest out there, and I will repurchase 32 gigs when Zen becomes available. I've never experienced any problems with Gskill.
Rig= AMD FX 8350, Samsung Pro850 500GB SSD, WD Black 2TB, 16 Gigs Gskill RipJaws, LG BluRay burner, Asus DVD burner, RADEON R9 270x VC, Windows 10 Pro Edition, 65" Sony Bravia 4K 850X monitor.
