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 :-/READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
