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: Just got this earlier today. Ran memtest. Came back no errors.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Upgrade from 4 2gb sticks at 8 total.

Had to set the speed and timings manually. This is with all memory on AMD systems. Know my bios well. No problems.

Of course as with all memory, it could fail in the future. Hope not though.

MSI Radeon R9 290X GAMING 4GB 512-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Runs the games I am currently playing on max settings smoothly(no stutter) at 1080p with decent framerates. FarCry 4, BF 4, and Crysis 3, which I had but never played before. I am using the fairly new Omega drivers. from AMD.

Cons: The gaming app does not work correctly for me. It would not go from 1030mhz to 1040 mhz. I checked the config file and 1040mhz was not even in the profile. I could not add it to the profile. This was the gaming app on the disk . The latest from MSI would not even load. Kept getting does not support this application error.

Other Thoughts: I don't think 10mhz would make much of a difference anyways. This card runs fine at 1030mhz which is the default setting at load. Temps are reasonable 74c was the max I recorded, in a warm room. That was while playing Crysis 3. Max was 65c playing BF 4

MSI afterburner works fine. I am using the newest version. Just using it for framerate and temp monitoring, though I'm sure at some point I will record some gameplay.

I have no intention on overclocking this card. I may however buy a second one for crossfire at a later date. At this point I still give it 5 eggs as I really don't care that the gaming app did not work for me correctly.
