Pros: It's two strips of DDR3 1600. Its got blue heat shields. It works.
Cons: The heat shields aren't red, which would match my mobo.
Other Thoughts: BLUE RAM!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Great board for building a gaming rig on a budget. Fired right up for me out of the box. No need to worry about popping caps with the solid ones on this board. Paired with a FX-6300, 16GB Team Vulcan 1600, xfire Radeon 7970's handles any game I throw at it.
Cons: BIOS is somewhat clunky. Overclocking is a bit of a chore. Two of the screw holes didn't line up with my case.
Other Thoughts: This is a full ATX board. If you have a micro tower it won't fit. It's cramed into my mid-tower pretty tight.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, easy to overclock (but don't go past 4.1Ghz with the stock cooler!), competes with the Intel equivalent at half the price!
Cons: Stock cooler is kind of cheap...but easy enough to replace with an aftermarket one.
Other Thoughts: I paired this with a BioStar TA970 and saved some dough. Added 16GB of Vulcan DDR3 1600 and CrossFire Radeon 7970's (2GB vRAM each). Goes into full beastmode on any game I throw at it.READ FULL REVIEW
