ASRock ASRock Fatal1ty Gaming Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+/AM3 AMD 990FX + AMD SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 990FX Chipset - Easy setup.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I upgraded to this from an ASRock 970 Extreme3. Best part was the base drivers are the same, except for the NIC. Since I use straight up AMD Drivers I easily swapped my boards around, and started up with no issue.

My FX 6300 still tops out at 3.8GHz in Turbo, but I have found this to be the norm with the 6300 revision I am using.

I got this somewhere else as part of a deal when I build a friend a new computer.

Thermaltake Overseer RX-I VN700M1W2N Black SECC ATX Full Tower Computer Case Standard PS2 PSU Power Supply
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Lots of room, with 120 rad compatibility. It comes with 1x 200mm intake, 1x 200mm exhaust, 1x 120mm can add 1x 200mm intake side fan and 1x 200mm exhaust top fan.

Cons: Cable management is a little rough, but with some work you can make everything fit nicely. I will point out the windowed panel is a pain to put on without laying the case down.

Other Thoughts: Got this from a different supplier locally on sale. I have all 4 200mm fans going with a push / pull on my Antec Khuler.

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I got 2 of these from a different supplier that had them on sale to replace my old SATA I 250 and 400 WD 7200 RPM drives in my desktop. So first of I will say this, they fit perfectly in my Antec DF 85 while attached to the hot swap bays. Sure they are smaller but the bays are designed so they plug in and rest nicely on the ledges.

Now for the good stuff. Took 15 minutes, beginning to end, to install a fresh load of Windows 7 Professional 64bit, and load time is at most 5 seconds. Games load much faster than before and run much smoother.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Antec DF 85
FX 6300
8 GB DDR3 AMD Radeon 1600
ASRock 970 Extreme 3
Antec Khuler 620
Sapphire HD 6800
2x Samsung 840 Evo 250
