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: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: This is one of the finest CPUs that I have ever owned. Don't get sidetracked by all the synthetic benchmark comparisons with Intel - they mean very little in real life use unless you are into heavy 3D modeling, prosumer video editing, or server clustering. This 8 core CPU blows anything away and in terms of per $ value it delivers in day to day computer use from multi-threaded applications to the latest 3D games.

What is especially nice about this CPU is that it turbo clocks to 4.2 GHz and has plenty of on die cache memory. Pair it with an amazing motherboard like: ASUS SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS and you will have one monster of a system.

I got 32 GB of RAM paired with it (Patriot Viper 3 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 15000) Desktop Memory Model PV332G186C0QK) using Windows 7 Professional as Windows 7 Home does not support more than 16 Gb of RAM).

Don't forget to cool this CPU properly as it does run hot. Use Arctic Silver 5 thermal paste. Also, don't waste money on liquid cooling since with the above mentioned thermal paste and COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO you will be idling at 17 degrees C and hitting barely 38 degrees C with the latest 3D games with all the settings turned up.

The overall performance is top notch. With 8 dedicated cores using ample shared cache memory this CPU will be future proof for the next 3-5 years.

Cons: None.

ASUS TUF SABERTOOTH 990FX R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Built like a tank with options to match. Fully graphical BIOS is a major plus. If you buy RAM make sure you tweak the timings as most likely the board will down clock your RAM which is not a negative thing - just a safety thing. USB 3.0, SATA 3.0, PCI Express 3.0 - what is not to like. Pair this bad boy with AMD's FX 8350 and you will have a super fast computer.

Cons: None

SAMSUNG 840 Series 2.5

Pros: Great performance at an average price. Easy to install. Comes with migration data software.

Cons: Wish they were 1 TB a piece and slightly cheaper.
