AMD FX-9370 Vishera 8-Core 4.4 GHz Socket AM3+ 220W FD9370FHHKBOF Desktop Processor - Black Edition
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 4.4Ghz, 4.7Ghz turbo;
Easily overclockable;
Extremely fast;

Cons: 220W;
Price (I wish I could've bought it at the sale price it is as I write this review);

Other Thoughts: I have had this cpu for over 9 months running at 5Ghz OC'd on turbo, and it has yet to fail me. While I am by no means a tech expert and that I am not really comfortable tweaking around with the cpu settings, I was able to overclock to a stable 5Ghz turbo.

Also due to its 220W output, the cpu really needs a decent liquid cooler otherwise it will basically just fry out your motherboard. People usually recommend using atleast a Corsair H100i or anything higher to keep it at normal temps, and I suggest doing that if you're going for the 9370. I am actually sitting with a Corsair H80i which uses a smaller radiator with two 120mm fans in push pull configuration, for over 9 months now. While it does its job to keep the cpu cool, I am basically hanging on a fine string of nothing as the cpu might start to fry out anytime soon.

Crucial 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Unbuffered Memory for Mac Model CT2K8G3S160BM
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 16GB 1600;
Got it on sale;
Easy installation.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Huge upgrade over a stock 4GB memory on my 2011 Macbook Pro 15''. While I thought 4GB was plenty enough since I've replaced the original hard drive with a Samsung SSD, applications had to fight each other for the RAM. Can definitely say that the extra RAM helped a lot with the overall speed of the mac.

CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Plug and play friendly. Got mine to run right out of the box no issues. I like the black heat spreader too.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: By default the RAM was set to 1333 Mhz (even though advertised as 1666) so I had to change it in the BIOS.
Other than that, very pleased with my purchase. Great for my first time build.
