Pros: Works. I am able to run my system reliably on 1600MHz.
Cons: Not the reliability I would have expected at a 2133MHz clock. I have an AMD a10-7870K which I have tried to clock the iGPU a little bit more, but am held back by this RAM. I would have to do some more testing to see if it is the RAM or if it is my APU. I have adequate cooling in my system and nothing is blocking airflow.
Other Thoughts: I might recommend this RAM to a person looking for reliability as Mushkin is a reliable company. I do not recommend it to those looking to increase the clock on their CPU to match the timings on the RAM.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Works well. The a large capacity at an affordable price, This makes storing large files easy.
Cons: Audible spin-up. I have a SSD as my main drive and when I go to access my storage drive, I get to listen to it spin-up to full speed. Sounds like the old IDE drives I used to own.
Other Thoughts: This drive is made for home use storage. I would not use this drive as my main one, nor would I put it in a NAS. Those who bought these drives for anything other than home use are idiots for not knowing the difference between an enterprise grade drive and a home storage drive.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The intelligent overclocking feature is great and made overclocking very simple for a moderate overclock. Fan Tweaker works wonders so I don't have to wonder if my CPU is overheating. Lots of connectivity for drives, USB, COM, 6x SATA with RAID 5 options.
Cons: No on-board START button like many of their similarly priced Intel boards.
Other Thoughts: Love the apps that ASUS has incorporated into their boards. Remote connection, media server, AI Tweaker are all very useful when starting to learn about overclocking and multi-use computers.READ FULL REVIEW
