AMD FX-8320 Vishera 8-Core 3.5 GHz (4.0 GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8320FRHKBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: FAST! Stable, and so powerful I actually have to go out of my way to multitask it to death! The stock heatsink is not great but even after 10 hours of full load the temp topped out at 57 C, which is not great but on average it doesn't get above 42 C

Cons: heatsink could be better but it definitely doesn't need the sort that come with the new chips
oh and it's not free!!!

Other Thoughts: heatsink can be a bit hard to click down depending on the board, luckily the biostar 970 isn't one of the bad ones

Coboc U2-A2MICROB-3-BK 3 ft. Black Black High speed USB2.0 A Male to Micro B Male (5-Pin ) Cable

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: it works and stays together

Cons: an end or two was bent of 10 but it was fixable

Other Thoughts: I have a buddy who's sweet new phone always seems to be dead. He says his issue is that he forgets to charge it, or when he thinks about it he realizes he doesn't know where his charger is.... I said you're a moron! Your "charger" is an inexpensive USB cord, it's easy to get more than one! He then said he tried but there are too many choices I don't know which one works.... So with that I rage purchased 10 of this size and 10 of another and had them all shipped to him. Now if he has a dead phone I figure I'm within my rights to use one of these cords to beat him senseless, you know just to make sure it actually gets used!

Seagate Momentus 5400.6 ST9320325AS 320GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: quiet

Cons: a little slow even for SATA II

Other Thoughts: this actually runs a bit slower than my SATA I drive (which is 7200), I was hoping the higher transfer speed would be noticeable but no..... It is also not really that big, when all is said and done. I say this bc when i bought it I some crazy how thought I was buying a 500 Gb for $30. Ooops! I also had problems with the screws. All the hdd screws I had seemed too long. These screws work in all of my 3.5" drives as well as my 840 Pro (2.5 ssd) I used rubber washers on the outside of the drive cage to fix it but just a heads up. Maybe I need to buy newer screws...
