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

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I bought this for my new budget gaming PC, and it was money well spent. Newegg reduced the price by ~$20 the day that I bought it, making it the best deal hands down.

Overclocked from 4ghz to 5ghz with a ~$50 liquid cooler that has 2 fans over the radiator. Stays ~50C while playing WoW on all Ultra.

Cons: Not as good single core performance as Intel, but still works great. I play WoW and WoW tends to prefer intel CPUs, but intels are bad at overclocking due to their cooling and are a lot more expensive, I still think this is the smarter purchase.

Pros: Works well, is quiet, and I like the new purple theme of my case, it's very unique.

Cons: n/a

Rosewill CHALLENGER - Black Gaming ATX Mid Tower Computer Case - Three Included Fans - 1 x Front Blue LED 120mm Fan, 1 x Top 140mm Fan, 1 x Rear 120mm Fan - Two More Optional Side 120mm Fans Supported

Pros: Gets the job done, plenty of space. I originally was looking for something smaller, but I'm glad I got this one because I barely had room for everything in a relatively basic system.

It also comes with a 3.5" to 2.5" adapter, I don't think that's mentioned, which is great because I'm only using SSDs.

Cons: No USB 3.0 on the front :(

I bought the very popular CPU cooler the 12Evo or whatever it's called (most reviewed CPU cooler), and it didn't seem to fit. Later I read other people managed to fit it in this case, but it was my first aftermarket CPU cooler installation. I eventually opted for a lower end liquid cooler and I'm glad I did. Getting 50C overclocking an FX-8350 from 4ghz to 5ghz.

Other Thoughts: To do something different I replaced the fans with purple LED fans and it looks cool.
