G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR

Pros: Runs at 1866 (only when) using XMP Profile(s) in Bios...
but just marginally at 1.5v. Not bad performance for the voltage.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If just plugged into my mobo modules run at 1600Mhz with stock Bios settengs. When I changed Bios to XMP (Profile 1), timings changed to 1866 at 9-10-9-27 with Cmd Clk =2 at 1.5v, and my sticks are just barely stable. I am considering tweaking voltage up to ~1.52. XMP Profile 2 lowers Cmd Clk =1 and they will not post. Still happy

5 out of 5 eggs Absolutley Silent 12/13/2014

This review is from: EVGA 430 W1 100-W1-0430-KR 80+ WHITE 430W Power Supply

Pros: Silent. Way quiter than a 500W Corsair I bought last month for another build. Value priced. Black Shielded cables. Has all the connections I need. Would Highly Recommend.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Oversized for my non-gaming needs, but the only decent 250-300W PSUs (like SeaSonic) cost double this one.

HEC Vigilance Black 0.5 mm Thickness SGCC MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case with Dual 8cm Fan, 2x USB2.0 and HD Audio
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Small, Sexy mini-Atx, value priced. Cool DVD door, oversized On button, great Glossy black front bezed, great ventalation. If you like the way the pictures look, you won't be disapointed.

Cons: USB 2.0 on front bezel, also 80mm fans not the quietest, but they are not too bad when the case is buttoned up. Not bad for free/included, but I might replace them with slower 120's in a year or so.

Other Thoughts: Despite USB2, I bought it on looks alone and am very happy. Get the case WithOut the included PSU, as it is also a little noisy. Remove the front bezel to install DVD drive, and screw in DVD drive (removing tool-less clips on that bay). I also removed the steel drive bay tab just under the DVD bay to re-route some case wires, it gave me some extra length to my mobo.
