AMD FX-8300 is Already in Retail Trade

Despite the fact that AMD initially scheduled the official release of FX-8300 for 29 December, this CPU can already be found in some Japanese retail stores. Such sudden appearance in free sale allows all potential consumers to get assured in all claimed specifications. Thus, FX-8300 is an eight-core chip of the new generation that is characterized by 95W TDP level. This is a kind of a breakthrough, since its Vishera companions, FX-8350 and FX-8320, consume up to 125W power.

The reduction of power consumption is explained by the decrease of CPU clock frequencies and nominal voltage showings. Hence, the nominal clock frequency recorded with this CPU model makes up 3.3GHz, while in Turbo mode the frequency rises to 3.6GHz. Some resources state that FX-8300 is able to overclock up to 4.2GHz, however, this info is not vindicated so far. This chip is developed specifically for Socket AM3+.

PSU Seasonic X-1250 SS-1250XM Review

Power supply unit Seasonic X-1250 is a senior product of X series that includes units from 400W to 1250W power. The two junior models are absolutely passive, while all other models feature hybrid cooling schedule. This implies that on conditions of little loading, the integrated fan stops its operation; and vice versa, when the loading is increasing, the fan's operation is more intense. PSU X-1250 is quite powerful to serve the needs of high-performance systems that require stable and efficient power to all key components.

Basic Features

Power supply unit Seasonic X-1250 is delivered in a spacious cardbox which contains a set of cables for the connection of PC components. The unit is housed in a dull black casing with stamped yellowish grid. The whole construction is 190 mm in length (+20 mm for cable connectors), so it won't suit compact-sized PC chassis. All basic specifications are indicated on the casing: the availability of +12VDC line that demonstrates 1248W power at …
