G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C7D-16GTX

Pros: Running stable at stock settings of 7-8-8-24-30-2T which is perfectly fine for what I'm doing.

Cons: Not really a con but worth mentioning. There is an earlier review that states these can run at 1T and that may be true but I was not personally able to achieve this. 2T offers much better stability on the board I'm using - Asus M4N98TD EVO.

Other Thoughts: I'm quite impressed with this memory and it certainly gave me a speed boost over the 4 GB of memory I was using prior. If you're looking for some good memory with tighter timings for an AMD machine this is definitely worth the money.

G.SKILL PIS 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2000 (PC3 16000) Desktop Memory Model F3-16000CL7D-4GBPIS

Pros: Great memory! Fast and no problems yet! Running at 1600 mhz with an amd phenom II x6 core.

Cons: Newegg discontinued it! Not worth docking an egg cause it has nothing to do with the product but I'm saddened by this move by newegg because I don't want to go with a different kind of memory...

OH well...

Other Thoughts: Was able to mess with the timings on my mb and managed to get the timings of this ram to the advertised specs at 2000mhz although I'm not sure it's worth it. Probably better with quicker timings although I haven't tested yet...

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition Thuban 6-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 125W HDT90ZFBGRBOX Desktop Processor

Pros: Great CPU with awesome computing power! 6 Cores which will serve you well from gaming to multi-tasking applications in windows or whatever else it may be!

Cons: None!

Other Thoughts: Awesome price for the best AMD processor available! I was originally going for a Phenom II x4 965 but after some deep thought I decided to just shell out the extra money and go with this! I haven't been dissapointed in the slightest and I know that I'll have a competative processor for several years to come.

The one thing I wanted the higher end processor for was games, even though most games only use one or two cores, I felt that just going ahead and getting a 6 core would be beneficial later on, plus it's great for multi-tasking and clearly there will be no room for slowdown with a x6 core processor running in conjunction with dual SLI'ed Geforce GTX 470's, and 8 gigs of ram.... woooohooo!!
