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

Pros: Low cost, Good performance for pice, runs pretty cool

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: The only gripe I have is the heatsink. I understand the processor is lower in cost but I bought an FX-4100(same price as this 6300) last year February and it came with a copper core heatsink... this heatsink with the processor is just a block and thats it. Fan didn't even have an AMD sticker on it :(. I understand cutting costs to keep the prices a little lower but really... I think this heatsink could have performed better had it had a copper core like the FX-4100 had come with. I dropped the copper core one in (before installing my water block) and saw a 6c degree drop over the solid block one that came with it :-/

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-530SS 530W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Stable, cool, on/of switch for LED fan a plus as I don't like blue LED's, cable length is sufficient

Cons: Would have liked to see 2 - PCI Express dongles as opposed to one coming from the PSU. SLI with 2 cards that use 2 - 6 pin connectors would be impossible unless you have an adapter

Other Thoughts: I bought this one to replace the Raidmax 650W PSU I bought a little over a year ago that shorted out and fried my computer. Had to buy new motherboard, processor and one set of RAM that was crippled from the surge it created. :( I decided to give Raidmax one more chance, mainly because of the price and reviews compared to other PSU's in its price range and class.

RAIDMAX HYBRID 2 RX-630SS 630W ATX12V V2.2/ EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready Modular Power Supply, New Version with Build-in LED Fan On/Off Switch
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: enough power connectors for all my components. Cable length was sufficient though I'd have like to see the main cluster to be a couple inches longer (only using a mid tower and I had to get creative with routing to make it work). Power was stable.

Cons: Fan died in 5 months. Replaced it with a Sythe 130mm fan and it did a good job. A week ago, the PSU fried and shorted out my rig thats only a year old so now I have to buy an entire new rig with money I don't have.

Other Thoughts: Not buying Raidmax again. Going back to Rosewill or Corsair. never had problems with them until several years of use had passed. I was only utilizing about 60% of the PSU's capacity on the rails with my equipment so I can't understand why this failed so fast.
