AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Super fast and a fraction of the price of Intel. I tried to upgrade from the 8350 to an i7-5960X thinking it would be SO much better. It's NOT!! Save your money and buy this instead. Yes it's several years old technology, but it out performs in real world uses. Try real things like running antivirus on an external HD, or playing games!

Cons: The 8350 doesn't match up to many newer Intel CPUs on benchmark tests??? I guess that's a con if you only run benchmark tests.

Other Thoughts: Just one Real world test... Ran Avast on the same 3TB external HD.., FX8350 -- 10 minutes, i7-5960X -- 32 minutes. Shouldn't it be the other way around, especially since I have 32GB of 2400Mhz ram now instead of the 16GB 1600Mhz yesterday?

SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 270X DirectX 11.2 100364-4GL 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card (Dual-X Edition)

Pros: A good video card that doesn't break the bank. Plenty of memory for any of my games. Plays everything at max settings with no problems. I'm very happy with my purchase.

Cons: Not a 512 bit card? Not the best on the market?

BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 200mm Case Fan

5 out of 5 eggs BitFenix fan 06/11/2015

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 200mm Case Fan

Pros: This fan is very quiet and puts out Lots of air. I bought it to fit into a NZXT Phantom 630. I also bought an NZXT fan in case this didn't fit. The BitFenix is much quieter and puts out twice as much air. I'm extremely happy so far.

Cons: Cost??? Price could be a little better, but also not the most expensive. Definitely worth the money.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you do your homework before buying fans. I've had several "generic/common size" fans that didn't fit into the case I was buying for. Having a fan like this one with multiple mounting holes is certainly favorable, but might be too deep for your case.
