Seagate Desktop HDD ST3000DM001 3TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: No problems. Works fast enough to have multiple media centers playing videos from it.

Cons: Nothing.

Other Thoughts: Got it and immediately filled half of it with media center stuff. All's good.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Keeps my A8-3780k at 25 degrees generally. A bit overkill but feels nice to have a cool parts.

Cons: The tips of the copper tubes collapsed somehow like they were crushed. The case has plenty of clearance so I'm not sure what happened. Doesn't seem to affect performance. Just be careful, I suppose.

AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano Quad-Core 3.0 GHz Socket FM1 100W AD3870WNGXBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6550D
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Great APU. Plays all my games just fine.

Cons: Be careful overclocking.

Other Thoughts: For my first time overclocking, system became unstable. So if you're a novice, be careful and don't panic. But it's been fine since then. I can play my Humble Bundle games perfectly.
