SAMSUNG 64GB microSDXC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model MB-MGCGBA/AM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

5 out of 5 eggs Great for phones 10/12/2013

This review is from: SAMSUNG 64GB microSDXC Flash Card w/ Adapter Model MB-MGCGBA/AM

Pros: Works well, fast, respectable name

Cons: Did not come with USB adaptor - not really a problem, as I expected this.

Other Thoughts: Installed on Samsung Ativ-S Neo Smartphone.
May buy another for car stereo file storage.

AMD Radeon Gamer Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model AG316G2130U2K
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Amazing speed, great capacity, easy to configure.
Combined with RAMDisk software, makes everything a breeze.

Cons: Not ever listed on QVL lists - not a problem, though

Other Thoughts: Make sure that your CPU is new enough to handle this RAM. My new CPU didn't arrive until several days later and in the time between I had to use my older RAM, as this RAM did not properly work, despite all attempts and even contact with several tech supports (they were of no help, as I had to end up teaching them about the problem)

Installed 32GB (2 orders)

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

3 out of 5 eggs Not very impressed 10/12/2013

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: Complete package, works well with software, simple design, works with stock backplate - less tooling required.
Pretty lights on the block, able to be configured through software.
Fit well in my case, and allowed for various configurations.

Cons: LOUD! I received complaints about it sounding like an airplane taking off, could be heard across the house.

While the instructions were complete, they were very vague about any issues. They do not instruct that there is a hidden cap on the 4-pin connectors that lead to the block.

Instructions advise to set up fans as intake, a poor choice for thermal design inside the case. This forces the GPU to use the recycled hot air. I went with this configuration to keep my case at a positive pressure, despite the lack of fan filters on the installation spot.

Many wires coming off of this unit, adding to cable-clutter inside the case. Not very simple to organize for air-flow.

Other Thoughts: I ended up installing separate brand fans that use hydro-dynamic bearings to reduce the noise. The noise level dramatically dropped when I installed them.
I also installed the block with Artic Silver Ceramique thermal compound instead.
So far it works about as well as my Cooler Master 212+ Tower Cooler that it replaced.

Installation, while easy, felt awkward in attempting to ensure that thermal compound spread appropriately.

Purchased this cooler in a combo with CPU&Mobo

Installed on AMD FX-9370
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z
32GB AMD Radeon Gamer Series RAM 2133MHz
AMD Radeon 5870 (to be upgraded to R9 290X when available)
