AMD FX-6300 Vishera 6-Core 3.5 GHz (4.1 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 95W FD6300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 6 cores.

Lower Power consumption compared to 8350 and other FX CPUs.

Overclocked to 4ghz stable without adding voltage.

Runs cool under full load and overclock.

Cons: Unremarkable performance in games/tasks not optimized for multi-core CPUs.

Higher power consumption than Intel.

Other Thoughts: I have been running this processor for 6 months and am very pleased. I was able to achieve an overclock of 4ghz just by adjusting the multiplier (no power or mobo tweaks required). I originally wanted to get the 8 core FX-8350, but decided the power requirement may exceed the capabilities of my budget motherboard, especially during extended gaming sessions. At 4ghz the FX-6300 has similar clock performance as 8350 and LESS power consumption. Besides most of the games I play do not fully utilize all 6 of my cores. 8 cores might just be overkill.

Asus GTX670-DC2OG-2GD5 GeForce GTX 670 Graphic Card - 980 MHz Core - 2 GB GDDR5 SDRAM - PCI Express 3.0
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This is my second GTX x70 series card (upgraded from GTX 470). I personally think the x70 cards are the best value. You get most of the power of a x80, at a much more reasonable price.

The cooler design work much better than the reference design.

Cons: Though the cooler design works better than a reference design blower, it does vent the hot air back into the case. You must have good air ventilation in your case to remove this extra heat.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works as advertised

Heat spreader!

No Problems so far!

Cons: The heat spreader makes the RAM stand a bit taller, but any normal case should still have lots of room.
