This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW) Water Cooler
Pros: Came in great, brand new condition, with original packaging, looks great. For a thin 120mm rad, it cools really well in pull on my FX 6100 (12-17c on idle with light overclock of 400 mhz, never saw it reach 30c during about an hour of skyrim gameplay on max settings, in an Arc Midi above an R9 270x Toxic). Amazing price for what it is (and period)!! Super easy to mount on AMD platform because of magnets (and no backplate to install like Intel :P), also one year warranty.
Cons: No Corsair link obviously, but that's not a problem because I knew that when purchasing, honestly I'm having a hard time trying to think of any.
Other Thoughts: If you're scared of buying this because it's not an H100i and because it's refurbished, and you don't have enough money for a more expensive cooler, just get it. It's only 50 bucks right now, it looks great in your system (it's the new model, not the crummy old one with tiny tubes), and it performs really well, much better than your stock cooler and probably some aftermarket heat sinks. I've only had it for a day, but so far this thing is amazing considering I paid 40 bucks for it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: PNY VCGGTX650XPB GeForce GTX 650 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 Video Card
Pros: I haven't had this card for very long, but I'll write based on what I've seen so far. To start off, this card is quite small, and will fit in almost any case. It is also fairly powerful. I can run Planetside 2 almost maxed out (shadows and light turned to medium, render distance set down) at about 30-40 fps steady. It also does GTA 4 completely maxed out except for shadows at about 35-45 fps steady. War Thunder on Movie, completely maxed out everything, never gets below 40 fps and stays around 50-60. Runs Minecraft with Sonic's Unbelievable shaders at about 15-25 fps, upwards of 100 without.
Cons: Doesn't look amazing, and the cooling isn't amazing. Also, it's not a 680.
Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend this card, but get it from someone else, like EVGA, the fan on this is tiny.
~AMD FX-6100 Black Edition
~Corsair Vengeance 2x2GB 1600MHz
~Western Digital Blue 500GB 7200RPM
~Windows 8 64 bit (it's really not half bad)
Pros: This processor is great! For the price you get a nice 3.5 GHz , 6-core CPU, and Intel offers only dual cores at this price range. I've had no problems with it so far, it's really strong and paired with a good GPU, it can run almost anything with no probs. Having six cores also means this processor is great for multi-tasking.
Cons: The heatsink isn't really amazing, and idles at about 35-40 C. But it works decently for gaming if you're not going to be overclocking. Also the fan they gave me is red, and my system is blue and black lol. Another thing, CPU-Z and any other program used to identify the CPU will tell you it's a 6100, because it basically is. Nothing serious, though.
Other Thoughts: Haven't tried overclocking yet, will wait until I have a better cooler.
