Antec Basiq BP500U 500W Continuous Power ATX12V Version 2.01 Active PFC Power Supply - Intel Haswell Fully Compatible
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: My power supply finally died last night. But for close to 6 years, it has been running 24/7 on my main gaming rig. It has seen 3 motherboards, 5 video cards, and 4 processors.

I keep my machine at near 100% processing power trying to find cures for diseases through World Community Grid. The GPUs were all power hungry upper mid range cards. About the only time it wasn't on was durring power failures or bad storms.

Cons: Had to get a SATA cheater. I knew that when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: What I am saying is this power supply has been an absolute work horse. Very reliable, and you can't go wrong getting it.

AMD Athlon II X3 440 Rana Triple-Core 3.0 GHz Socket AM3 95W ADX440WFGIBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very powerful chip.
3 GHZ Tripple core is a Bargain in price only mid $80s

Cons: 4th wouldnt unlock

Other Thoughts: Did not buy the chip just to see if 4th core would open. But hey, had fun trying ;<)

Seriously though, this chip will run anything you throw at it

BIOSTAR A770E AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

4 out of 5 eggs Nice little budget board 04/24/2010

This review is from: BIOSTAR A770E AM3/AM2+/AM2 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Installed Easily

AOC unlocking 4th core is very easily done

Board is very colorful and looks good in the case

The Athlon II X3 435 was found right off the bat without any BIOS updates needed.

Cons: HD audio front panel connection only. AC’97 connector
will not work. (of course my case does not have HD audio)

I am using a stock X2 64 6000 fan. Even with that I can not use the first RAM slot because heat sink is right up against the ram.

Does have a 95watt limit on processors.

Other Thoughts: Great little motherboard for the money. I tried to unlock two different processors the 435 and a 440. 435 went through without any problems. The 440 failed.

Thought it was kinda cute the way it recognized the chip afterwards " Athlon II X3 B35"
