SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6450 1GB 64-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready  Video Card ( 100322L)
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: HDMI , fanless

Cons: Worked for 5 months now totally wacked out. I was running dual graphics and got a little performance bump. Now it lower fps than the IGP. Can't get it to run right on 4 motherboards. RMAing tomorrow. REALLY left a sour taste in my mouth. Back to Nvidia.....

MSI A78M-E45 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 (Bolton D3) HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Lot's of bells and whistles. Easy OC in bios bumped my 3.7 to 4.0 ghz with one touch! No hick ups on Windows 7.

Cons: I have a volume license copy of W8.0 and have installed, tried to install it in this board maybe 4 out of 12 times. I stripped all the cards and add ons out, get the initial install done then it locks up after updates or installing the AMD drivers. I tried newer, older, just vga. Last time I had it running for months perfect then an older version of Easeus disk utility totally messed it up. It runs great if you can crack the code (and I am a very good computer tech) but if your wasting a license you will NOT be happy.

Other Thoughts: I originally purchased a GB GA-F2A55M-HD2. It loaded W8 flawlessly over 6-7 times. The drivers loaded perfect from the cd. I REALLY want to like this MSI motherboard but it's like a bad girlfriend.........

Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

3 out of 5 eggs Not for AG8 06/27/2014

This review is from: Rosewill RCX-Z90-AL 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler

Pros: inexpensive

Cons: Didn't work for me as a replacement for intel stock fan on older AG8 motherboard. I tried 3 different thermal paste but it kept overheating my P4 550. Looks identical to the stock heat sink (except it's not copper core).

Other Thoughts: I never had problems before w a heatsink. I triple checked installation , push down & turn to lock ? It all felt secure. I got disgusted and thew out the older motherboard.
