Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TLD38G1600HC9DC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Good RAM good price.

Cons: Out of the box it runs at 1333Mhz, it is able to run at 1600Mhz without a problem. Just go into your BIOS and overclock it to 1600Mhz.

Other Thoughts: I thought the coolers were going to look pretty dumb, but when it's in your case you only can see the top and it doesn't look too bad.

4 out of 5 eggs Great board for the price. 08/30/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Has everything you'll need for a good price. 990FX is AMDs best chipset at the moment. It also looks great, it's a good pick for people who want a case with a window.

Cons: Only 2 16x PCIe ports and no PCIe 3.0 (this is a problem with the chiset and not just this board). This isn't a problem for most people because a graphics card in 4x PCIe 2.0 will only have a performance drop of less than 5%, but people who want to do 3 way crossfire with AMDs new bridge-less cards might not get as much performance as they could.

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

Pros: 8 cores allows for many programs to run at once with minimal performance hit. This CPU is great for video rendering and live streaming as well as gaming.

Cons: Single threaded performance is somewhat low (much lower than any of the Intel CPUs)

There is only 4 floating point units. This isn't much of a problem in most applications, but might cause lower performance in some programs.

Other Thoughts: I have this CPU paired with an R9 290 graphics card and there is zero bottlenecking while gaming. You can have many programs running in the background and see almost zero change in gaming performance.
