HIS Radeon HD 6870 DirectX 11 H687FN1GD 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Worked great while it worked. Played every game I threw at it.

Cons: It seemed to run hot, and within 2 weeks of its warranty expiring a capacitor on began to leak. After about 20 minutes of running the card shuts off at around 60 degrees Celsius (well under threshold)

Mushkin Enhanced Chronos Deluxe 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Allowed Windows 7 and Windows 8 to start from a cold boot in less than 20 seconds.

Cons: The drive now shuts down after 20 minutes of regular use.

4 out of 5 eggs Great, but a little warm 09/16/2012

This review is from: AMD FX-8150 Zambezi 8-Core 3.6 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W FD8150FRGUBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: The CPU is very powerful, and it performs well under all conditions.

Cons: I noticed it seems to run a little hot (112 F idle with stock heatsink), which is understandable with an 8 core processor. I purchased a larger two fan heat sink, which dropped the idle down to 60F.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this to users that require a larger AMD CPU. If you need more power you can choose to go to Intel, but expect to pay a lot more money.

If you purchase this I do recommend that you purchase a different, larger heatsink.
