Rosewill Stallion Series RD450-2-SB - 450-Watt ATX V2.2 Power Supply
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Got it when it was $35. Good PSU for that price. I used it in a budget build and it has been running for 4 months under pretty constant use with no issues. Cables were actually long enough.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you know what you're getting, before you buy. It is not modular, and it's not the most effecient PSU. Heat is average, maybe slightly better than other PSUs in it's price range.

AMD FX-4170 Zambezi Quad-Core 4.2GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD4170FRGUBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast and affordable. I hadn't purchased an AMD chip in a long time, but decided to give an FX a try. So glad I did. I don't overclock, and it still runs everything great. Photoshop, Painter, video editing, even MC server. Runs any game I've thrown at it. Got it during the sale, so it was well worth the price.

Cons: Runs hot, even without OC. Aftermarket fan is a must. I even installed an extra fan in my case. I'm worried about how long it will last.

Other Thoughts: Many people trying to compare AMD FX series to Intel cores. This chip is NOT an i5, but for what you get, it's way more cost-effective than a comparable Intel CPU. I've been running it for 3 months now on a budget build (ASRock 960GM/U3S3 w/ GTX550Ti and 8GB RAM). Still runs a little hot, but I haven't seen any negative effects.
