Silicon Power Slim S60 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decreased boot time by approximately 30 seconds, using linux. Application load time seems faster. Can't quantify time of applications start just a perception of speed increase.

Cons: none at the moment

Other Thoughts: SSD install on any computer should improve user experience. Not a necesary component but sure is nice.

AMD Athlon 5350 Kabini Quad-Core 2.05 GHz Socket AM1 25W AD5350JAHMBOX Desktop Processor AMD Radeon R3
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low cost cpu for someone that only needs computer for light internet browsing and communications. Handles multiple browser tabs with ease. Used this Kabini to build a computer to replace aging Sempron box my sister has been using for close to 10 years. Can't upgrade that system any further so it's time for a new system.

Cons: none it's perfect for the purpose intended.

Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2 GHz LGA 1150 53W BX80646G3258 Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low cost enthusiast cpu that over clocks well. I'm an AMD fan boy but could not pass on a chip that overclocks this well and cost less that 100$. Built a super cheap gamer for under 450 around this and an MSI PC mate motherboard. So parts list:
Intel Pentium G3258
MSI PCmate Z97 MB
4 Gig Crucial 1600 ram
1Tb Western Digital hard drive
Rosewill 450W 80+ Bronze power supply
EVGA Nvidia 750Ti
Would recomend this if your on a budget or just want to have some fun OC'ing this puppy.

Cons: Does get warm on full load at 4.4GHz, but Im using stock cooler and it is still stable( 70 + top temp full load)

Other Thoughts: Bumped up the CPU multiplier and cpu voltage100 MHz to .25 volts. So Started at stock 3.2 and raised it to 4.4 with voltage ending up at 1.175. I'm sure individual results will vary greatly but 4 GHz should not be a barrier .
