AMD FX-6100 3.3GHz Six Core (FD6100WMW6KGU) Desktop PC CPU Socket AM3+ 938-pin
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I bought the retail version of this CPU (form Newegg) back in early 2012. I have had it running at 4.5GHz on air for about 2 years now without a hiccup. It's paired with an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX Gen1 MOBO and 16GB G.Skill Ares 1600Mhz RAM. I believe with a newer MOBO and 2133MHz RAM this chip can perform even better.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Thinking about "upgrading" to a newer CPU. Unsure if I want to stick with a newer gen FX-series CPU, or go with the A10-7850K. I want to keep my clock speed around 4.5GHz or so. The FM2+ MOBOs support PCI-E 3.0 and my Sabertooth is limited to 1833MHz RAM, but I'm getting good reliable performance with my current setup......decisions decisions.

SAPPHIRE 11196-19-CPO Radeon HD 7950 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Plug-in Card Video Card Manufactured Recertified
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Fits well inside my case (identical in size to my old card).
-Noticeable improvement in games with settings maxed.
-Stays cool
-Quiet

Overall I'm very happy with Sapphire's video cards. This is my 3rd one in a row, and I've been happy with all of them.

Cons: None yet, other than the shipping issue mentioned in my previous review.

Other Thoughts: Have this set up as the primary card Crossfired with a Sapphire 7870XT, however I realized that I do not have any games that the 7950 can't handle on it's own at max settings. I do know that Crysis 3 would make the 7870XT work, but I have not tried it with the 7950, Crossfire enabled.

ASUS Sabertooth 990FX (GEN1)

Pros: See other thoughts

Cons: See other thoughts

Other Thoughts: I just received the card today. Have not installed it yet. When I opened the large shipping box, the box was full of air bags. The smaller box the card was in was beneath all the airbags in the very bottom of the larger box. Kinda defeats the shock resistance of the airbags. It should've been placed between them. When I opened the smaller box (refurb so did not come in original box), it was lying in the bottom of that box with a 1/2" piece of packing foam on top of it. So the card was in the bottom of a cardboard box that was at the bottom of another cardboard box. All the protection was above it, none below it. I am not happy about the way Newegg packaged this product. I will post a follow-up review after the card is installed.
