Part Reviews

CPU

This CPU for the price has outperformed my expectations. It runs surprisingly cool even using the stock cooler and is well suited for a wide variety of tasks. I would buy another without a second thought as it pleases me greatly.

Motherboard

Awesome board for the price. Have had zero issues.

Memory

It's ram. it performs as advertised. Enough said. I have not attempted to clock above spec as there is very little point for my purposes.

Storage

Super responsive and just works.

Video Card

This card has shown quite a lot of promise for overclocking.[Voltage,Core Clock, Memory Clock etc all seemed to have a good deal of headroom.] Very stable under stock settings (Although I did run into an unusual issue where my wireless networking card caused instability in benchmarking etc. even when not connected to a network.) That said, this is not an ultra high end card, so you should not expect miracles. In my case it works well in my media hub connected via HDMI to a 40" Television & DVI to my 17" monitor.

Case

Works well for my purposes. No major issues. I would suggest buying the USB-3.0 Front panel variant if your motherboard has the header for it.

Power Supply

Very quiet and Is supporting my FX-6300, 16gb of 1866 Ram, R7 360 2G, and 250gb SSD, barely. For the price its pretty decent, but I would advise getting something better if you can afford it unless your build is less intensive than ours. I wouldn't advise going any cheaper than this unit as quality very quickly becomes an issue on the lower end supplies.
