Pros: Processor worked well
Cons: It only lasted 8 days
Other Thoughts: I swapped out 3 different motherboards, thinking that was why the computer wasn't posting during boot. I swapped power supplies, memory, videocards, and still the system wouldn't boot. By this time, my RMA 30 day return policy window was up, so now I can't even return the processor, even though it died after only 8 days.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: MSI 970A-G43 Plus AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 & SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: Small, inexpensive
Cons: Worked for 8 days, and the the JPWR2 connector failed. Newegg was awesome to RMA me a new board. This new board powers on, but now there's no display. Replaced video card, but same issue. The board won't post. Mouse is identified, but not the keyboard or monitor. going to continue debugging, but may have to RMA this one and hope the 3rd one works.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I wanted to give my new machine a couple of weeks before writing this review. So far, it's an awesome machine! iBuyPower packed it perfectly, with no loose parts. Booted great, and running Witcher 3 at the highest settings.
Cons: Had to format the second hard drive, but easy to do. Also, there was a watermark on the desktop saying "SecureBoot isn't configured correctly". After a simple registry fix, it went away. SecureBoot isn't required anyway, so no worries.
Other Thoughts: I bought from iBuyPower November of 2012, and that system held up all these years. That's why I went back to them for my new beast!READ FULL REVIEW
