Pros: - High wattage
- Consistent voltage
- Powers +125 CPU, 4 sticks of DDR RAM, 3 HDDs, 1 SSD, DVD drive, Water pump, and 2 AMD 6970s in Crossfire without a hiccup
- FULL modular
- Durable braided cables
Cons: - Very sensitive to surges and sags
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty good PSU it will supply almost any demand you have. My only annoyance with it is that it cannot take a blip. If I lose power for just a fraction of a second the computer shuts down. I don't know if this is a security measure or just the large ammount of power it consumes, but I have had other older PSUs that you could unplug and plug back in quickly at the computer would stay online. I would deffinately reccomend an un-interuptable power supply in conjunction with this.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD8150FRGUBOX Desktop Processor
Pros: - Easy to set clocks rates
- supports memory speeds high than 1333MHz
- 8 core w/ 8 threads = lot of processing power.
Cons: - Heat, 8 cores will generate a lot of heat make sure you have a good cooler.
- Not a huge jump in real performance over my Phenom II x6 1100T
Other Thoughts: Overall I am kinda disappointed, and I know understand why this CPU has been nicknamed the Faildozer. It's not that it is a bad CPU, do not misunderstand me this is a great CPU, but coming from an 1100T there is not a huge gain in performance. If you are building a new system this is a fantastic processor and will meet any need you have, but if you are looking for an upgrade from the Phenom it isn't worth $200.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Good Heatsinks
- Stable even when overclocked
- I have not benchmarked them yet but they seem to be preforming very well while gaming.
Cons: - None thus far
Other Thoughts: I had previously bought a of Corsair memory which performed well at times, but just wasn't stable. Although this set may not be as fast (at stock clocks) their performance is solid.READ FULL REVIEW
