CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 64GB (4 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model CMK64GX4M4A2400C14

Pros: - validated with several motherboards
- drama free
- makes system/CPU overclocking easier (i.e., no CPU strap or BCLK concerns)

Cons: - nothing

Other Thoughts: Great memory that plays well with your other components and is compatible with the majority of motherboards. I don't think memory speed affects gaming performance that much, so I favored size and system stability by selecting the 2400 MHz variety.

5 out of 5 eggs Impressive Cooling for an AIO 09/05/2016

This review is from: Corsair Hydro Series H115i Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler, 280mm CW-9060027-WW

Pros: - great cooling
- easy installation

Cons: - loud fans

Other Thoughts: As an old(er) gamer, I've transitioned away from the exotic custom water cooling solutions of my youth in favor of convenient AIO options like this. I recently helped a friend build a custom loop with a 6850k, and I'm happy to report that the H115i has cooling performance that isn't too far behind much more expensive solutions. That is, after obtaining a 6850k for myself, the H115i performed nearly as well as my friend's custom loop - save for the noisy fans. My idle and load temperatures are still quite good, and certainly not limiting my OC potential.

I highly recommend this product, but it is worth using custom fans if you want a truly quiet solution.

MSI GeForce GTX 1080 DirectX 12 GTX 1080 SEA HAWK X 8GB 256-Bit GDDR5X PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - great cooling performance
- outstanding overclocking potential
- worked on the first try, even in SLI, without issues
- nice white LED lighting on the fan

Cons: - could use a higher quality fan

Other Thoughts: I highly recommend this product. Compared to the Titan X (Pascal) that I'm in the process of returning, these GPUs provide outstanding drama-free performance in SLI. Cooling is great without being excessive, as there's no point to keeping your temperatures below 40C if it doesn't translate into better OC performance. In this way, I don't think my OC GPU temperatures have ever gone above 55C under full load, which is more than sufficient.
