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

Pros: 8 Cores - Plenty of space to crunch several applications at a time

$169.99 Low price tag in relation to performance

4.2Ghz - Nice way to break into the new spectrum

Very compatible socket AM3+, so a variety of mobos can be used for this technology.

Cons: Limitations are comparable to a Core i5

Other Thoughts: Sisandra Test:
AMD 8350
105 Drystone GIPS
73.60 Whetstone GFLOPS

Core i5 3570k
92.84 Drystone GIPS
54.84 Whetstone GFLOPS

Although I'd hope that the world's first consumer 8 core processor would've been competing with the likes of the Core i7, it's limitations only make it a contender for a Core i5 at best.

My conclusion, for the price and scalability of the AM3+ socket, I rate this a solid 5 egg product, but don't go trading your Core i7 for this, you may be disappointed.

Athena Power Cable-M84M84F 8
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Far better construction than the competition 08/13/2013

This review is from: Athena Power Cable-M84M84F 8" Extension & Conversion Four-In-One

Pros: It's a simple straight forward cable

The mesh sheathing does not simply come undone when you touch it, like other mfg.

Cons: It cost more than I'd like to spend for this type of cable, but the construction is worth it.

Other Thoughts: I like these better than the (censored) because their mesh sheathing does not slide off and it's a lot higher quality construction.

Cooler Master TPC 812 - High Performance CPU Cooler with 2 Vapor Chambers and 6 Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Holds my 4.4Ghz Processor at a steady 87F on max load.

Cons: Awkward installation for AM3+

Other Thoughts: I did another review and I wrote it while installing this item, this is the follow up to that review.

I'm super impressed with the cooling aspect, it mitigates high temps without breaking a sweat.

The only downfall is the AM3+ installation bracket, it forces you to install this item facing top/down instead of front/back, so it disrupts the air stream in the case which is usually front to back.
