AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Ultra Powerful CPU ... So fast at crunching data such as video data that needs to be converted etc. This CPU can complete a video conversion task in 3:30 minutes that my prior CPU would take 14:00 minutes to complete. I enabled Cool'n Quiet and the CPU idles all 8 cores at 1400Mhz until CPU processing power is needed. I'm Very Very Happy with this CPU in what it can do so quickly. I am just going to avoid prolonged use on the current system until my better motherboard arrives to avoid damaging my CPU.

Cons: No Cons with this CPU, although I found myself having to buy a new motherboard because I found out that although my motherboard Biostar A960D+ states that it supports the FX-8350 125Watt CPU, the VRM's are only rated for 95Watts Max, so I ended up buying a Gigabyte GA-78LMT-USB3 to replace this motherboard as for if the VRM's burn up on the Biostar, unsafe higher voltage source DC can bridge-over through a failed VRM and kill the CPU by over voltage to it. So I am spending an additional $65 to play it safe and not have to worry about the potential of killing my new CPU.

Other Thoughts: Be sure your motherboards VRMs have a heatsink and are rated for 125 Watts or greater, otherwise I'd advise not to install this CPU into that board unless your willing to risk cooking the CPU if you have a VRM failure.

CORSAIR CX series CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE Certified Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Got this on a promo with a rebate to buy this at the price comparable of lower quality power supplies, but at the high end quality of Corsair.

Cons: None at all

Other Thoughts: I should have bought 2 of these at the deal they had with rebate, but rebate was only 1 per household ='(
