HGST Travelstar H2IK10003272SN (0S03563) 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, fast. worked at first.

Cons: 3 out of 4 dead so far. terrible reliability. should have stuck with WD blacks. 3TB raid 5 array down to a single 1tb drive.
I ordered four of these to make a raid 5 array in a spare dvd tray in my desktop. for a couple months, everything is great. then, two weeks ago, one drive refused to show up in windows. then a second drive started clicking and making scraping sounds, and read data very slowly(<1MBps). a third drive just started doing this as I was looking into RMAing the first and second drive.

Other Thoughts: I dont think I will RMA these. they are far too unreliable, and are not worth the time or shipping costs to get new ones. Ill be going with a pair of new WD black 2TB drives in a new pc case.

ASUS P8Z77-V PRO LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI 4 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very nice board, seems to be very high quality (much heavier than my other full atx boards.)
12 phase vrm, great for insane overclocking and longetivity
built in wifi-see cons
easy to use for expansion, can plug in long video cards and still get to all necessary cables.
bios is a joy to use, easy to understand, did not have to use manual.
bios recovery
6 pwm fan headers

Cons: wifi- uses proprietary antenna connection instead of normal one, and is only b/g/n. a standard msata port for full wifi cards would have been preferable

asus driver utility did not work, had to install drivers manually

Other Thoughts: a very nice board. it wont overclock any higher than the p8z77 v, unless you are going the ln2 route, but has 4 additional vrms, so power load is split between more parts, meaning less load on each part for lower temps and better longevity. this is the kind of board you buy to power a machine until the cpu is useless for modern day tasks, or about 7-10 years.
very feature rich, definetly get your money's worth.

Mushkin Enhanced STEALTH 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996988S
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very nice. 1600 MHz with cas 9 latency and low operating voltage.
standard profile, so it fit under my hyper 212
most importantly-MADE IN USA. i dont know of another brand made stateside.

Cons: price. ram like this used to be $50 for 8 GB. so prices have gone up 50%. dissapointing.

Other Thoughts: Very ice. slid into motherboard, auto-set to 1600 mhz and auto set to 1.35 volt. didnt have to adjust anything. planning on getting another set to fill my other 2 sets.
