Good CPU

AMD FX-8150 - FX-Series Zambezi 8-Core 3.6 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD8150FRGUBOX
AMD FX-8150 - FX-Series Zambezi 8-Core 3.6 GHz Socket AM3+ 125W Desktop Processor - FD8150FRGUBOX

Pros: Great CPU for the price

Cons: The only thing I run into was the same thing some other people who wrote reviews had...The AMD Anti-Tamper seal was broken and the tin the CPU comes in was dented plus there was 3 bent pins that I had to straighten.I don't know if this was a return or it had been dropped but Newegg took care of it for me. The other con I see is some of the bad reviews so please read my other thoughts as it may save you a lot of heartache AND Headaches!!

Overall Review: This CPU had some bad reviews because of Motherboard Bios problems NOT the CPU itself...so #1 make sure your motherboard has the latest Bios upgrade for the FX CPU's!!! Number 2 and VERY important!!!! If you are installing this CPU in a motherboard that has already had another CPU in it...you MUST enter your bios and reset it to "Optimized Defaults"!!!! After you do that then you can go back into the bios and set things the way you want.. so many of the low ratings are USER error not the CPU. Just another thought..Sometimes I read these reviews and it looks more like a "Show and Tell" from when we were kids in grade school.."See what I have"..lol..Read one review where the person complained that the Intel was faster...well why didn't you buy the Intel?? Both Intel and AMD are good CPU's.Yes Intel has some very fast chips but the price reflects it..If you want a good preforming CPU at a affordable price the AMD FX CPU's are a good choice.

Most Critical Review

Not for AMD and cretian M/B

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro - Compact Multi-Compatible Tower CPU Cooler | 92 mm PWM Fan | for AMD AM4 and Intel 115x CPU | Recommended up to 115 W TDP
ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro - Compact Multi-Compatible Tower CPU Cooler | 92 mm PWM Fan | for AMD AM4 and Intel 115x CPU | Recommended up to 115 W TDP

Pros: I can't rate any Pro's only for the reason I can't use the cooler iThe cooler itself may be a good cooler for Intel because it mounts in a different way.

Cons: This fan may be OK with Intel but not with AMD..Like others on here the fan is very close to the Ram and on my Gigabyte 990FXA motherboard with AMD CPU the fan mounts so it blows air toward the top of the case and would NOT clear my ram..It may work well with Intel because the fan would be rotated 90% to blow air to the back of the case.

Overall Review: So if buying this cooler be careful and do some research to make sure it will work with your app.

Not Bad

Samsung Electronics 24X SATA Half Height DVD-Writer Internal Optical Drive Model SH-224FB/BSBE

Pros: For the price you can't go wrong

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: May not be the fastest or the best but buying on sale hard to beat the price.Bought a few of these on sale and so far no problems so far..

Works better then Antec620

ZALMAN LQ-315 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM
ZALMAN LQ-315 Water/Liquid CPU Cooler 120MM

Pros: Works better then Antec 620 and not as loud.I'm not a overclocker and the only test I ran was using AMD's Overdrive..The Anrec 620 would hit almost 70 degrees C but the Zalman never went above 58 Degrees C. I also liked the fact that the Zalman came with a Retention ring to hold the water block where Antec did not come with one.Makes the install much easier.

Cons: None so far..

Overall Review: I really think the same company makes most of these coolers..Found that all the part numbers for the mounting hardware were the same as what came with the Antec cooler

Pros: Worked for 1 day..

Cons: It worked for 1 day..

Overall Review: If I have to RMA the card and pay shipping it will be the last time I buy from Newegg.

JUNK

Eagle ET-AR504LR-BK 35 Watts RMS 2.1 Black Soundstage Speakers
Eagle ET-AR504LR-BK 35 Watts RMS 2.1 Black Soundstage Speakers

Pros: Look Nice

Cons: Total Disappointment...My 12 year old Altec Lansing ATP3 sound twice as good as these Eagle speakers and the Altec speakers are only half the watt output!!! I picked up these Eagle speakers new in the box at a good price but did not buy them on Newegg.Now I do buy most of my stuff from Newegg:) I just want people to know NOT to waste their money buying these speakers.. The Sat.speakers will pass at best but the Sub-Woffer's sound like Cra*(can't use the word on here) but I think you know what I mean:)

Overall Review: I thought I was going to get better sound and higher output with these Eagle speakers but was I ever wrong..If I found another set of these speaker for $20 I would not buy them!!!
