Review Update

AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1 GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D
AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1 GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D

Pros: If you use Win 7 64 bit with the built in GPU. You must Install The latest bios for your board & the Latest Beta AMD Graphics drivers. I think dated June 6th 2013. Then This Chip Runs Great. The Support For Richland Isn't Included In Any Other Drivers! Before this. Check The AMD Forums! It will run but, Not Good.

Cons: Runs A Bit Hot. I Modded A Backplate (Cut some spots out for the chips On The Asrock $99.00 Board) used some rubber washers & It works OK Running @ 38C in a 80 degree room. Im not sure about the temps being wrong? It does run @ 4100 Mhz @ full Load....

Overall Review: I built a HTPC That i also use to rip blurays. I Love it for that. I don't game much. A little steam Dirt3 & it works great. If you get THE BETA DRIVERS!

Pros: At least the web page is working now. Will report on the board when I get it!

Cons: The new web site is not intuitive. It's like a lot of things these days BETA

All Good But The Cord!

Pros: Great sound from my DAC. Comfortable. All good

Cons: The cord is to short for my purposes. I sit on my bed 10 feet away from my DAC. The cord is long enough but' it pulls my DAC of my PC in the process. I have a ext. cable but can't use it because the cord has a proprietary end on both ends. I was unaware of this. So a heads up to anyone else.

Overall Review: I can use it for other purposes. I just wish I would of known this.

Excellent

From a R5 1600 to this

AMD Ryzen 5 3rd Gen - RYZEN 5 3600 Matisse (Zen 2) 6-Core 3.6 GHz (4.2 GHz Max Boost) Socket AM4 65W 100-100000031BOX Desktop Processor

Pros: I see a big increase.Partially from the X570 chipset and some from this. It turbos to the top just fine on my boards latest bios and it's working great. This runs a bit warmer I put a Noctua tower on top of it problem solved.

Cons: They degraded the cooler on the 3rd gen Ryzens. Too bad!

Overall Review: I bought it for a new gaming box and love it. Paired with my MSI gaming performance and my MSI 2060 it handles all I need. AMD is back!

Big and Great!

Phanteks Enthoo Pro Series PH-ES614P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Phanteks Enthoo Pro Series PH-ES614P_BK Black Steel / Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: The trend lately is smaller cases. ( i have bought them). But there is something to be said for the full tower. I used this for a gaming box and I love it. It has decent airflow which can be easily upgraded. It has all the room you need. I love the option to use or not the PSU cover ( I didn't). And I wanted room for drives, It has that Plus no RGB which can be added also. It's a dream to build in.

Cons: It has none IMHO

Overall Review: I would recommend the case to anyone.
