Crucial Ballistix Sport 4GB 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model BLS4G3D1609DS1S00
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Bought 2 sticks, both are WOA (Working on Arrival)!!! That's a good sign!

Computer is fast, but unsure if that is due to the 8GB of Ballistix DDR3 1600, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it has a LOT to do with it!

Hey, the wife thinks it's pretty too...

Cons: No strobe lights included! lol...

Other Thoughts: Great product from my experience, Crucial has been around a long time, hope to see them around that much longer!

3 out of 5 eggs Low Priced! 03/08/2014

This review is from: LOGISYS Computer PS550E12 550W ATX12V Power Supply

Pros: So upon building this rig I like the size of the fan, connections LOOK like there is enough. 550Watts seems more than sufficient for this build.

Someone included in their review: "The lack of the 6-pin Graphics connector". This probably due to the lack of multiple rails to fuel such a connector (this power supply clearly states in specs that it has a single rail, also notes that the 12v supplies 25A which is typically needed for the graphics alone!!!). In higher priced model Power Supplies they do have such a connector! I have or have owned a dual rail Logisys power supply years ago for this reason alone, to power a power hungry Nvidia video card!

It works AS described, long as people read the Specs they will see what is lacking, this is a base line power supply pretty strong really other than maybe the fan issue, fans never seem to last however!

Cons: After looking closer, my SATA DVD Burner, and SATA HDD are seperated a fair distance apart. I found the small 3.5" floppy drive power connector, and the good ol' 4pin molex that is a thing of the past now in new builds (only need 1, maybe 2, 1 from each rail if the power supply has more than 1 rail). I found after installing everything running the wire. I went to plug in the power to my HDD, and the power cable I mistook as SATA power cord was a 2x 4pin molex...

Other Thoughts: To Newegg:

Luckily I had an old-school 4pin to SATA power. Otherwise I would have had to move my HDD from it's installed state to under the Burner less air flow, pain to install conveniently in the case included in Newegg's bundle. I would suggest reading more into the included power supplies that Newegg may put with their bundles. Initially there are enough connecters for the bundle to work correctly, however convenience is taken away due to the lack of SATA power plugs (the only 2 plugs are off the same rail (wireset) and about 4-6 inches distance once installed. So if Newegg offered a 4pin to SATA power adapter for $5 (wow it's $3 to ship such a little item?) to allow the Bundle to be even better!

AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7560D AD560KWOHJBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Even better than my main PC... I'm impressed with the Advances AMD has made in their strides to be the #1 contender to Intel, if not leading the pack! I'm just glad AMD is still around!

Cons: This isn't to do with AMD, as I could see the marking for Pin#1 clearly. But the MB Newegg included in my bundle wasn't very clear where Pin#1 should have gone... Seems I need to buy a 6,000,000 candlelight flashlight, and 100X magnification set of glasses! :P

Oh, and the fan wasn't all pretty and fancy on the Heatsink!

Someone else mentioned it isn't free, geez, it was pretty cheap!!!

Other Thoughts: A++ I'm a happy camper, and feel this CPU/ and maybe the PC will last my friend a long time!
