This review is from: AMD FX-8300 Vishera 8-Core Socket AM3+ 95W FD8300WMHKBOX Desktop Processor
Pros: 8 cores, unlocked multiplier, decent speed with overclocking capabilities. Haven't had much time for gaming yet, but it seems to be quite a bit faster than my previous X3 720 BE.
Cons: None.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Upgraded from an order Gigabyte Motherboard supporting an X3 720 BE processor. In this upgrade, I changed out the motherboard, processor, and added an M.2 SSD.
Paired this up with the FX8300 and it's working flawlessly. The motherboard also took the Crucial MX200 M.2 2280SS drive without any issues. It'really nice having the boot hard drive tucked away behind the graphics card.
The entire system boots up in less than 10 seconds, so it's a huge improvement over the system I had before.
The red LEDs are a nice touch, and are brighter than expected (not a bad thing). The board is well laid out and everything was recognized without issue on Windows 10.
Cons: None that I can find.
Other Thoughts: I've had only Gigabyte boards since I've been building computers, and I only hope this lasts as long as the previous board (6+ years).READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Working as expected. Bought two and the both arrived in working condition.
Cons: None. Didn't arrive DOA so I'm happy about that.READ FULL REVIEW
