G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-4GBXL

Pros: Was not sure this memory was gunna work on my AMD board either. Saw a previous review saying it worked so i bought these hopeing the where gunna work for me and they have. the stay cool too. my case temp reading read of the memory and they have yet to excede 38ºc

Cons: Should have bought another set for the 8gig of memory.

Overall Review: PC specs Apevia X-Dreamer 3 case with 3 120mm fans 500gb 7200 rpm Western Digitial Corvair Black Raidmax hybrid 530w psu Gigabyte GeForce gts 450 fermi 1gb 128-bit G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 10666 AMD Athlon II X4 640 Propus 3.0GHz MSI 870-g45 am3 amd motherboard

ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS
ASUS M5A99FX PRO R2.0 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: like the board, color, features works as advertised, glad i went with this board

Cons: upon receiving package the mobo box was already open and did not come with i/o back plate or the heat sink mounting brackets. good thing i had a extra fm2 mobo laying around. also the board was bowed, didnt sit flat had to press the mobo flat to get it to fit.

Overall Review: good purchase but i was expecting a i/o plate and at least a heat sink bracket

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

Pros: cost to performance PERIOD, sure the intel i5 will do better at gaming or ANY SINGLE program use. granted if the i5 or i7 was around the same cost as this chip i would have been more inclined to go intel but amd has intel beat for cost and then some. honestly i was expecting a noticeable difference from my athlon x4 640 at 3.4 ghz but ive noticed more of a difference with my video card then processor, but when i multi task like i do, ill have a game running surfing the web and watching videos its nice to have the head room knowing i wont run into any problems

Cons: at idle paired with stock heatsink i was at 38º c when ambient was 22. changed to a old zalman 135mm heatsink dropped to 33ºc at idle. i also noticed that with the heat it dissipates thru out other parts of the m/b.

Overall Review: when i get water cooled parts in i will update and see what changes we get. paried with a asus m5a99fx gtx 970 600w psu 8g pny ram,

EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-3975-KR 4GB SSC GAMING w/ACX 2.0+, Whisper Silent Cooling Graphics Card

Pros: obviously more powerful than my old gts 450 oc size fit my case PERFECTLY looks great and i expect great reliability dont really plan to over clock but will turn on the fans at normal use, runs too warm at idle for my liking

Cons: runs warm at idle because the fans are not on. will change that to have the fans on all the time at slow speed, dont have a quite pc so its no biggy to me

Overall Review: paired with asus m5a99fx board amd fx-8350 pny 8 g ram merely 600w psu which runs well

great
