AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5GHz (4.0GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Initially impressive cost/performance ratio

Cons: Wouldn't POST with two separate motherboards after two months of light use and about 10 minutes of stress using Prime95 (this was with the first mobo, where it just shut itself off and wouldn't POST again); no visible damage to the CPU, although I'd be surprised if there was since 50c is not that hot (highest temps it reached w/ stock clock and stock cooler under 100% Prime95 load) and wouldn't/shouldn't fry a CPU by any means.

Other Thoughts: Don't throw out the packaging like I did, thinking this thing would last forever like Intel has for me. I'm now out $130, however I doubt I'd want a replacement anyway as it would probably just fail again.

ECS A960M-M4 (1.0) AM3+ AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Cheap, but as always, you get what you pay for 01/09/2015

This review is from: ECS A960M-M4 (1.0) AM3+ AMD 760G HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Paid $23.74 for it, worked without issues after tweaking a bit

Cons: Lasted roughly two months
Don't bother trying to overclock (probably why it failed)

Other Thoughts: Board worked for a couple months before failing, but didn't expect much more out of something on sale for $23. What most likely killed it was when I started running Prime95 to see if I could overclock the CPU at all, although the motherboard shouldn't have fried simply because of that (CPU only reached 50c; system shutdown itself and wouldn't come back on, even after using the clear CMOS jumper and re-seating both the RAM and CPU).

AZiO AWU212N Wireless Adapter 1T2R IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs exceptional, but you need a usb extender 12/15/2010

This review is from: AZiO AWU212N Wireless Adapter 1T2R IEEE 802.11b/g/n USB 2.0 Up to 300Mbps Wireless Data Rates

Pros: Gets 300 mbps with a USB extender and taped to the wall facing the router

Cons: Need a USB extender, or this gets around 108 mbps max by being plugged into the back of my server

Other Thoughts: This is probably the best wireless adapter you can get, considering I recently tried a Rosewill PCI-E adapter that said it would get 300 mbps and barely got 81 mbps with two external antennaes (would also not utilize dual bands, so it was at 150 mbps max).
