Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Stands the test of time... as long as they haven't changed it 12/23/2013

This review is from: Antec Sonata III 500 Black 0.8mm cold rolled steel ATX Mid Tower Computer Case 500W Power Supply

Pros: * Very Sturdy
* Somewhat Quiet
* Looks great
* No drawbacks whatsoever

Cons: * NONE

Other Thoughts: I've owned this case for about 5 years now and it has remained my absolute favorite. Mine is definitely top quality, but I am sad to hear from recent reviews that they are apparently now taking some shortcuts in manufacturing that affect its quality. The case is now much more expensive than before, but I would still pay that much for it.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma Dual-Core 2.7GHz Socket AM2+ 95W black edition Processor AD775ZWCGHBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: ...it's fast for the price.

Cons: Runs hotter than my Athlon 64 X2 6000+ 125W at stock settings. I've tested it on various systems using different cases, heatsinks, fans, thermal solution, etc. I know all this because I went through the process of determining that my CPU was bad. It was -at 64 degrees Celcius it would shut off. I got it RMA'd and the new one runs just as hot, but hasn't shut off on me yet. I don't dare overclock it, which I think defeats one of it's main purposes.

Other Thoughts: AMD's website is a complete joke. Their warranty instructions tell you to go to their site to file a warranty claim. However, this model of CPU isn't even listed as an option to file a warranty. In fact, their whole online account system is bogus. I finally got in contact with a good rep who pushed everything through for me and was able to get my new CPU shipped. I didn't even have to pay for shipping the old one back :)

AMD Athlon 64 X2 7750 Kuma Dual-Core 2.7GHz Socket AM2+ 95W black edition Processor AD775ZWCGHBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: -Overclock Potential
-Cheap

Cons: -Junky heatsink and fan

Other Thoughts: Let me make this clear: I'm almost 100% positive that this is the exact same heatsink and fan that my old X2 3800+ came with 2 years ago. No copper heat pipes or anything like the one that comes with the 6000+. So, the whole "Black Edition" thing kinda loses its value unless you grab an aftermarket cooler.
