5 out of 5 eggs Thermaltake V3 Black Edition 02/15/2014

This review is from: Thermaltake V3 Black Edition VL80001W2Z Black SECC / Plastic ATX Mid Tower Computer Case

Pros: Good construction, easy to install everything. This is my second Thermaltake case and so far very happy with it.

Cons: MB sits way crammed up at the top with makes it hard to find fans to fit in the top. Looking to use water cooling next but not sure how to get it to fit.

Cons: Kinda noisy and don't care for the fan control that has to be but in an expansion slot.

AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1 GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Video Card built in, 4.4Ghz is blazing fast when paired up with an SSD. Windows 7 Ult. load time is less then 8 seconds. Plays and does anything I can throw at it. And kinda laughs at it cause it runs so well. Nice not to have to bother with buying a video card.

Cons: Stock fan is blow standard DO NOT USE. I used it with the first one and temp got well over 95c and burnt up the first chip. I used Artic Silver 5 and still burnt it up. Got a bigger fan and RMA'd the chip and all is well now. Going to get a water cooler and a bigger case next and see about getting 5 Ghz or so out of it.

Other Thoughts: Stock fan is usless, Totally usless I don't care if AMD says it's ok to use and ship it with the chip but it just don't cool it for anything. If you've been reading on here no one uses the stock fan and it's the biggest complaint. But the APU is flawless once ya get a good fan on it. Highly recommend.
