Pros: Fast, xmp profile available, large enough that I got 2 and have 2 empty ram slots for future upgrading, heat spreaders seem to work (no issues so far).

Cons: This could be a motherboard issue (MSI Z87 G45 gaming) but when I first plugged these in only 1 stick would be recognized in ram slot 1 or 3. Both sticks in and it wouldn't see the second. I turned on XMP profile in BIOS and rebooted and they both showed up dual channel 1600 Mhz and I haven't had any problems with them since then. Hopefully this was just a one-time issue.

Other Thoughts: I've always used Corsair high end RAM and have been very happy with their speed and lifetime. These are quite a bit less expensive and the speed is great. I can only hope they last as long! *fingers crossed*

Pros: Quiet, standard design for psu, gives enough power, haswell, 80 plus..this is all in the product description.

No problems which is all I can really ask.

Cons: Not fully modular but I knew that going into it so it's not really a con just a comment. I always have a few empty drive bays or somewhere to tuck those cables and give the box a clean look while maximizing airflow. Make sure you have room for those extra cables if using a smaller case (standard atx should be no problem).

5 out of 5 eggs Solid Fun 11/13/2013

This review is from: Borderlands 2 [Online Game Code]

Pros: Fun game, lots of DLC and online playing options. Got it cheap on a deal here at NEgg.

Cons: Very rarely you can get caught in a corner or stuck in a pit but not often enough to bother me.
