ASUS ROG PG278Q Black 27
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: High pixel density. Small matte bezel doesn't reflect the screen edges like my old monitor. Large flat base is just the right size for my little iPod speaker dock (I don't have an iPod but the speakers in the dock surprisingly have good bass). Height adjustment is super smooth. Horizontal rotation is a little stiff...which is a good thing. Slit in the monitor arm is big enough to feed all the necessary cables makes keeping the area behind the monitor nice and clutter-free. G-Sync makes a huge difference at this resolution. The whole unit feels very sturdy. USB 3.0 ports are nice as now I can plug my 2 LED light strips in and they turn off when I turn the monitor off.

Cons: Coats more than 2 reference GTX 970s straight from NVIDIA.

Other Thoughts: Comparing this to my previous monitor (ASUS VG248QE) there is no comparison. As a friend once told me that once you go 1440p, there's no going back.

CORSAIR Vengeance Pro 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 Desktop Memory Model CMY8GX3M2A2133C11R (Red)
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It works like it should.

Cons: Doesn't overclock well at all.

Other Thoughts: This is the second set of Corsair RAM I have purchased that is absolute trash when it comes to overclocking. 2400MHz can only be achieved with timings of 13-14-14-35 @ 1.6V. I know memory isn't really meant to be overclocked, but I do it anyway to see what quality the RAM is. So far Corsair isn't doing so well. Sure they work perfectly at factory settings and look decent, but come on. I've been able to overclock a set of 4GB Kingston 1333MHz that came in a Dell PC to 2133MHz with a voltage increase of 0.1V. If you want a quality set of RAM, go for Kingston.

CORSAIR Dominator Platinum 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model CMD8GX3M2A2400C11
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Works at advertised specs and remains stable throughout all tests. Solidly built and stylish heat-spreaders. LED's aren't very bright.

Cons: Hardly overclockable. Can only get to 2666MHz with timings like 14-19-19-46 @ 1.713V which is outrageous (obviously I'm not running them at those settings).

Other Thoughts: My first set of Dominator Platinum was the older 1.65V set of 1866MHz RAM. I was able to reach 2800MHz with timings of 12-17-17-36-1T @ 1.67V. only 0.02V increase isn't much at all. To put this into perspective, running them at 2400MHz with the same timings as this set required only 1.585V. 0.065V less than default voltage!! I have only come across 1 set of ram that can best the 1866MHz, and it isn't Corsair. Dominator Platinum is great memory if you're more concerned about looks than performance.
