OCZ RevoDrive X2 PCI-E 160GB PCI-Express x4 MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) OCZSSDPX-1RVDX0160

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Very fast (7.9 on WEI). Easy to install given drivers and Win7 SP1 slipstream. Each ASUS provided P8P67 Deluxe (running 2600k) piece of software installed perfectly/easily and works properly.

Cons: Very minor. I am dual booting with a second RAID 0 setup that uses 1 TB Caviar drives (also Win7 SP1). When booted into the OCZ setup, I can access the Caviar setup, but not vice versa. Not yet sure what I need to do to go both ways.

Other Thoughts: After initial setup my boot into Win7 was very fast--about 15 seconds. After I installed everything, my boot time more than doubled. Despite all the exceptionally fast boot times reported here, I think it might be a good idea to expect 30 to 40 seconds after one's machine is "fully loaded" and given the allowed startup items.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL11D-8GBXL

Pros: The memory works exactly as advertised with no fuss. 2133 with 11-11-11-30 out of the box. I get 7.9 for memory on the WEI from 102.2 X 1866 and up. Should get same with lower settings but haven't tried. Passmark performance test gives a memory mark of 3376 when running at 2133 and 5 GHz processor speed. Given a processor mark of 13154, etc., I end up with an overall Passmark score of 4651.

Cons: None AFAIK

Other Thoughts: I am using ASUS P8P67 Deluxe mobo. I have reasonable stability at 4.8 GHz with the memory at 2133. I haven't pushed the stability tests because running all out is not in my plan.

Cooler Master Silent Pro Gold - 1000W Power Supply with 80 PLUS Gold Certification and Semi-Modular Cables

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: My test meter says the Pro Gold Series 1000 does its job admirably. Its looks good and installs easily in my ASUS P8P67 Deluxe. The kit has mega amounts of cables. So, there are no worries about not having a needed cable.

Cons: Can't think of a single one.
