GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Easy hardware install. Easy load of software and OS. Video was older ASUSHD7750. RAM was 2X2GB PC31333. PSU was Rosewill 650W. SSD/HDD/DVD. Everything worked expected right out of the box. Build was on Friday. Rebooted for OS patches/AV/etc. Unit ran all weekend without any problems.

Cons: Motherboard fails to reboot. Sitting on bench, unit fails, will not reboot. Change out PSU. Reseated all the pinned connects to the motherboard. No go. This unit is a replacement which was RMA back to Newegg. This lasted three days before dying. frustrating for me.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 240mm
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I am dumping heat from my FX8350 CPU onto the water cooling of the H100i. The CPU and MB upgrades were based on the heat dissipation of the H100i. A FX6350 with a H80 went well so this was the next step. Very happy with results

Cons: Need to add power and USB connections out of sequence from install manual.

Other Thoughts: Update the install manual to show that the USB/Link and power Y have to attached after the hold down is attached and the chiller is attached to the top of the CPU. Space for adding the two connectors does not exist on either ASUS or Gigabyte MB.
I need a chiller for my video card.
