AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: 4.0GHZ out of the box
Unlocked
8 cores

Once more games start supporting more cores, this baby will really shine.

Cons: Rumor has it that it runs hot on the stock heatsink.

Other Thoughts: My rig have 4 120MM fans running on it, that's not counting the CPU heatsink.

People are saying this is supposed to run hot, but it idles at 8C. After spending a hour playing Batman Arkham Origins on high settings, it peaked out around 33C. That's pretty acceptable in my book.

I am using the stock heatsink.

XFX P1-850B-BEFX 850W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Lots of Power
Modular

Cons: The modular aspect can be a little frustrating. Instead of having short cables all clearly labeled that you plug extensions into, you plug all the cables directly into the PSU.

While there is some labeling on the PSU, it's not really direct and it took me a little bit to figure out what goes where.

Another issue is the SATA power connectors. They are pretty much a mess. I have some bottom case mounted SATA drives and due to how the cables are set up, it was impossible to plug them in. I had to move them somewhere else so there was room for the cables to be plugged in.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad PSU, modular and the fan is pretty quite. Would have been a bonus if there was lights on it.

COUGAR Spike Black Steel / Plastic MicroATX Mini Tower Gaming Case with USB 3.0 and 12CM Cougar Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap.
Works.
Fits somewhat longer cards.

Cons: The hard drive cage is a joke. It's partially my fault for installing the CPU first, but the way the case is laid out, it's impossible to get a standard sized HDD into the cage after you've installed the CPU. What happens if you want to install a new HDD? You remove the CPU? Give me a break.

Top mounted PSU.

Tool-less mounting system is really cheap.

The single case fan it came with was DOA. Good thing I had 4 120MM spares laying around.

Entire case feels like it's about to fall apart.

Complete lack of wire management system.

Other Thoughts: It's a cheap case, like, really really cheap, if you need something NOW but don't want to spend much. Not much thought went into the design at all.
