G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM

Pros: Nice looking, matches the blue scheme of my mobo. works as advertised. No problems so far. Provides a noticeable boost in response. Overall, great RAM,but then GSkill usually is. Had excellent luck with the 8 gig rip jaws kit it replaced. Popped in, set speed and timings in bios, booted and works great.

Cons: My only complaint isn't with the product itself, It's with GSkill's tech support. Tried several times to contact them with a couple of basic questions with no response. None at all. I have never been so completely ignored by a manufacturer of any component in my pc before. Don't get me wrong, their products are great but their tech support seems to leave a lot to be desired.

Other Thoughts: Running at 1600, 9,9,9,24 on my 890FXA-GD70 board with an FX8350 at 4.2ghz. So far, so good.

MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ AMD 890FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Solid build, something I have come to expect from MSI. I have had several of their boards with no failures ever. Crossfire-x board with lots of slots. very versatile bios for OC'ing. Up and running now for 5 months with no probs. Installed win7 64 with 4gb ram, AND XFX5870. no issues. Upgraded to 8gb and HD6970 2gb card and still no probs. Truly a great looking board also.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: This board offers all the features i was looking for, easy oc, room for lots of peripherals, able to run high wattage cpu's. It runs amazingly cool under full load, 28 deg. in aida64. Looks sweet in my dragonrider full tower too..As always, Newegg, and MSI rock.
