G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The memory works, but that's about it.

Cons: Not happy with the Windows experience index I got (5.5).Everything else on the build was close to 8! BIOS even recognizes it at 1600. The weird thing is, I have same memory in a 4x2GB format in a different machine and I get a 7.5 index. Not sure how accurate these ratings are, but something to be aware of.

Rosewill Hive-550, Hive Series 550W Modular Power Supply, 80 PLUS Bronze Certified, Single +12V Rail, Intel 4th Gen CPU Ready, SLI & CrossFire Ready
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The last few builds I have done have been with the HIVE series PSUs and I really like the modular design so that I don't have wires and cables in the machine that are not needed.

Cons: No cons so far.

SilverStone Argon Series AR01 CPU Cooler with 120mm Fan for socket LGA775/1155/1156/1366/2011, AM2/AM3/FM1/FM2
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Building a new machine for my parents. Keeps the A10 APU at 31 degrees Cel.

Cons: No Cons

Other Thoughts: If you are getting this for an FM2/A-Series build, make sure you have at least a mid tower case. There is about a half inch of clearance between the sink and the side panel (for my build). I wasn't paying enough attention that it was 120mm. Also, make sure you mount the fan high enough on the sink so that it does not touch the ram dims.
