AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner

ASUS M5A97 R2.0 AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Finally I bought an asus motherboard. I don't know why it took me so long. For anyone who is looking at getting a AM3+ CPU. I urge you to do some research on the 970 chipset vs the 990fx. They are exactly the same expect the 990fx is really mean for someone who is doing a SLI GPU configuration. Other than that I didn't find it necessary to spend the extra money on something I never plan to use. If you only have 1 GPU and are not planing to SLI you dont need the 990fx board. This board is perfect. 5 eggs.

Cons: nope.

Other Thoughts: The start up is quick. I get only 1 start up asus screen and then it boots directly to the windows screen.
the bios is fun (not dos).
didn't have to flash the bios.
Great brown pcb with nice glossy coating.
slightly smaller form factor than full ATX board.
Easy board layout-only wish they had more fan connections.

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

Pros: I'm a pro.

Cons: I received a processor in the mail that was packaged in a BOX packaging. I didn't receive the cool tin everyone is talking about. But this reviewer is not upset with the missing tin packing. I am more concerned with the following conundrum.

My processor came in a package marked as boxed, however the processor itself is marked as a tray processor. So the outside label of the packing is FD8350FRHKBOX but the inside processor is marked as FD8350FRW8KHK. (The serial number on the box does match the processor.)

I did some research and found that there are two types of processors that are sold OEM/TRAY microprocessors and BOXED processors.

FD8350FRW8KHK is an OEM/tray microprocessor

FD8350FRHKBOX is a boxed microprocessor

now according to the internet, tray processors are sold to companies like Dell, HP, etc. Boxed processors are sold to retail stores like new egg.

How could a tray processor end up in a box processor package?

Would anyone care to respond.
