Rosewill RCW-608 - USB 2.0 Adapter for IDE / SATA Device, Protective Case Included
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I waited years before finally buying one of these and I wish I did it sooner. This is fast (for USB 2.0), feels sturdy, and everything is laid out well.

The rubber "bumpers" are a nice bonus for the HDDs too. One for a 3.5", another for a 2.5" drive.

Cons: It isn't 3.0, but I knew that going in.

Other Thoughts: Would recommend for those who work on a lot of HDDs out of the case, file recovery, etc.

MSI MSI Gaming 970 Gaming AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 and SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: - Looks. The board has a well thought out design. It feels study in the hand, not like it will snap or bend. The gold capacitors near the audio area look great on the black motherboard. Heatsinks are giant and look cool.
- UEFI is standard now, and MSI has done a great job implementing it. Features are easy to access, and the BIOS flash screen just looks cool.
- Connectivity is certainly not limited on this board, and the red ports look really nice on this system.

Cons: I wish this board had a button on the back, so I could push it and on the next reboot it would go to the BIOS. My intel Z series board from MSI has this.
MSI has a lot of drivers on their website that do not work with Windows 10, or are older than Windows 10. A lot of them aren't necessary.

Other Thoughts: I'm yet to overclock it, but I will update this review when I do.

MSI is yet to fail me, and I put one of their boards in every build I make.

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

Pros: I have this in a new PC. and it certainly isn't the bottleneck. Seems fast, and if games can take advantage of all 8 cores, they run fast.

Cons: The CPU fan is noisy, and if MSI Control Center isn't launched the fan defaults to 100%. AMD systems make for great space heaters in the wintertime.

Other Thoughts: Haven't been able to push it all the way yet, as the GPU and HDD are still bottlenecking the system. I will update this review with how far I could overclock it once the build is finished.
