G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM

Pros: -8 Gigs
-1600 MHz
-Nice blue heat spreaders.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Perfect ram for anyone looking for 8 or 16gig build, I went with 8 gigs to save money for now. DDR3 1600 which is pretty standard right now, the most common ram on the market currently. Worked perfectly with my GIGABYTE GA-78LMT even though the box said 1600 was overclock it picked it up in the bios at 1600 on auto settings anyway.

Can't say anything bad about it, great ram, great brand which I've trusted for over 10 years, never had a single problem with any G.Skill products in the past, I highly recommend this if your looking for cheaper ram and don't care about getting the fastest speeds, should be fine with dedicated video card's for gaming, wouldn't recommend for apu's though as you need much faster ram to make those work. (2133+)

Only other thing I could say is the heat spreaders might get in the way of some aftermarket cpu coolers such as the cooler master hyper 212, luckily my motherboard uses the 2 odd slots to the right for 2 sticks in dual channel mode so it wasn't a problem. It might get in the way on some motherboards though if you are using all 4 slots or any of the left 2 slots.

Rosewill ROCF-13002 - 120mm Computer Case Cooling Fan with LP4 Adapter - Transparent Frame & 4 Blue LED Lights, Sleeve Bearing, Silent (Pack of 2)

Pros: -Great Price
-2 Pack!
-Blue LED

Cons: -Not That Fast

Other Thoughts: These are really great fans for the price, you get 2 of them for the price of 1! They are also really quiet, I can't hear them at all and they light up with blue led's which are ok in brightness but not the brightest I've ever seen, they still light up the inside of my case pretty good though.

They don't move a lot of air, they seem to spin pretty slow even on molex connectors which is what I recommend you use them for, no need to use these with fan controllers or on your motherboard with the 3 pin adapter since there already really quiet at full speed.

There great fans to fill up all the optional fan slots on a case with for the price and 2 pack, you really save a lot of money ordering these in bulk, but I wouldn't recommend it for anything else besides case fans, don't try to use these for 120mm compatible heat sinks such as the cooler master hyper 212. I only recommend these as case fans if your using 2 or 4 of them.

AMD FX-8350 Black Edition Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.2 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8350FRHKBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: -Best Price Per Performance
-8 Cores

Cons: -Loud Stock Heatsink

Other Thoughts: This is a really great processor for its price, currently the best price per performance on the market right now. I upgraded to this from my old 3Ghz Dual Core build and the difference is night and day.

For the games that take full advantage of all 8 cores such as Guild Wars 2 and PlanetSide 2 I received a massive performance boost going from 20fps to over 60 even while reusing the same video card (HD 6770). However in some other games that probably only use 2 or 4 cores I haven't noticed much of a change, namely World of Warcraft which still sits at 30-40fps in the expansion areas (Dalaran, Pandaria, ect...).

The only negative I have to say about it is the stock heatsink, it is extremely loud, I would highly recommend everyone buying this processor to get an aftermarket one. I didn't do it because I wasn't planning to overclock so I thought I would be fine with the stock heatsink but even with Turbo Core off (4.0Ghz) the stock cpu fan is irritatingly loud, I am definitely planning to get another cooler from newegg real soon.

Its nothing I would take an egg off for though this is still an amazing processor for ~$200, 8 cores and 4Ghz per core, you can't go wrong. I would highly recommend it for any budget build and for anyone upgrading their AM3+ motherboards..
