CORSAIR Vengeance LPX 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model CMK32GX4M4A2400C12

Pros: +Cheap(ish)
+low profile

Cons: As with all the machines I build, I do a thorough memtest86 run against them before even adding HDD/SSD and installing anything. Right off the bat I knew something was wrong when I started getting freezing, errors, etc. from these sticks. I think this is the first time I've ever had RAM fail memtest (first for anything, I guess)... I've RMA'd them back and will see if the replacement kit is usable...

Other Thoughts: Update (7/1/16): Replacement kit arrived and has passed Memtest86 v7 with flying colors (even the 'hammer test'!)... looks like I just got a bad kit (which happens, admittedly). I'll up the rating to 4 eggs, but I'll dock one for getting the first bad stick of ram I've ever gotten :)

Pros: +Quiet

Other Thoughts: I've had 5 of these running problem-free in a Synology 5-bay NAS since 2014! Zero errors, zero problems.

5 out of 5 eggs Get it. 06/30/2016

This review is from: Noctua NH-L12 120mm & 92mm SSO Bearing PWM Fans CPU Cooler

Pros: +Dead-silent
+Keeps my 65W TDP core i5 extremely cool (30C max)
+Easy to install

Cons: -Not a thing

Other Thoughts: I was shocked by how good this air cooler was... I have a closed-loop cooler in my gaming rig and this thing blows that away... I may have to switch that rig over as well... The only question you should have about this cooler is if it will fit in your case or not ( which it almost certainly should). Pay attention to RAM slot blockage when installing (just be sure to orient it in a way that works).
