G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It meets advertised specifications. It has leading edge frequency and voltage in operation.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I installed these two 8GB sticks in my Asus M5A99FX motherboard for use with an AMD FX-8150. In the Ai Tweaker menu, I selected the Ai Overclock Tuner to be D.O.C.P. and chose Profile #1. It offers profiles 0 and 1 and both seemed to work fine. This selection chooses the DRAM frequency, the timings and the DRAM voltage. With the CPU settings default, it booted up fine at 1866 MHz with the advertised timings and voltage (1.50V). The command rate was 2T for both profiles although one of the XMP SPDs showed one with 1T. I didn't force the issue for fear of losing booting ability.

The default CPU frequency was 3.6 GHz and is fast enough, but simply increasing the CPU multiplier to 20.5 gave me a stable computer running at 4.1 GHz. An OC wizard (person) could probably adjust the CPU voltages and get higher multiples, but I'm happy. Disabling the CPU and PCIe spread spectrum maybe helped the stability. That's what I read anyway.

The Sniper memory sticks have quite low heat spreaders and didn't come close to interfering with my Zalman CPU cooler. I think they're as low profile as the ARES memory sticks. I ran the Sniper memory through Memtest86+ (4.20) and it was error free overnight. It takes about two hours per pass.

Good memory.

LENMAR BCUNI3 Universal Battery Charger with LCD display and USB Port

4 out of 5 eggs Universal charger 03/25/2013

This review is from: LENMAR BCUNI3 Universal Battery Charger with LCD display and USB Port

Pros: The unit is versatile being able to charge NiMH and Li-ion batteries regardless of their voltage. It will do NiCd also but hopefully there aren't many of those left. The LCD displays the battery type (chemistry). The charging progress is monitored with "bars" much like a cell phone field strength. It has a USB charger port also, so you can charge your iPod or iPhone too. Reasonably well made.

Cons: Adjusting the contacts for the Li-ion battery is a bit tedious, but doable. Once set it's fine. NiMH batteries get pretty warm while charging so I would be careful what materials are near it while in use.

Other Thoughts: I replaced one of those "pinch type" chargers with this and I think this is much better. The old device literally fell apart. This device seems a bit more solid.

ZALMAN CNPS5X Performa 92mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Powerful Cooling Performance CPU Cooler
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Space efficient: Will not interfere with memory heat spreaders
Good cooling capacity
Integrates well with case ventilation

Cons: I have no complaints.

Other Thoughts: This is my second CNPS5X and it works as well as the first. After a recent build with an AMD FX8150 (8 cores), I could overclock it to 4.0 GHz and then run Prime95 without thermal runaway. With that experience, I bought this second one to go with an older 6-core build. The older build could not run Prime95 without thermal runaway. With the CNPS5X installed, it stabilizes at about 50-52C with Prime95. So everything's cool here.
I can highly recommend this cooler.
