This review is from: HyperX 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C10D3B1K2/16G

Pros: I only buyKkingston memory for the reliability and stability, its not worth headaches to cheap out on memory such an important part of the system

Cons: none not even price

AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Allot og GHz for the money

Cons: I purchased this CPU with an ASUS motherboard and reliable kingston ram on 2/2013 and from day one I had issues installing windows, issues formatting hard drives, and after 20+ attempts and different hard drives I got windows installed but then it was unstable and got blue screens and freezes, and mass data corruption on all hard drives in the computer. I had since then had the motherboard RMA from ASus and the Ram RMA from Kingston as they are usually the most likely causes of these issues.

After new Mobo and Ram, i still have problems instaling windows and system instability and due to the intermittent non total failure of the CPU I have been chasing this issue for two years. 5 hard drives later, new ram, new mobo, 10 sata cables later it finally seems that the issue is the memory controller within the CPU causing my instability and data corruption.

I cannot explain the massive trauma and heart ache this issue has caused me and might lead to me spending the extra 200$ it would cost to build intel systems. I asked AMD to upgrade me to an 8350 for my massive list and time of issues with this unit and they wont do that for me even though I wasted the last two years messing with this bad CPU. I am very very unhappy with this problem, CPUs should never go or be bad, poor worksmanship I guess by AMD.

Other Thoughts: I may not buy AMD again because of this. I do not like that memory controllers are in the CPUS, they are always bulletproof otherwise.
