CORSAIR Vengeance LP 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Profile Desktop Memory Model CML8GX3M2A1600C9
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Using XMP Profile I should be able to run this memory at 1600MHz the most I'm getting stable on my ASUS H97i-Plus is 1400, the memory throughput is also less then my GSkill modules I had, previous clocked 13Gbps and now I'm getting 11. Both the 1333 DDR3 GSkill Chips and the Vengeance LP chips are rated with the same timings. My bandwidth should be greater but its not. They do work and the system does not have 8GB available so the boost in capacity is good but I expected a slight bump in performance. I have opened a ticket with Corsair to investigate the performance.

Cons: Nor running at 1600, my mainboard lists this as a tested and preferred chip that supports XMP. Using XMP actually ran slower then not using it. Bummer.

ASUS H97I-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: After working with ASUS I found that this board will over clock with the G3258 however the unlocked multiplier only affects the processors turbo frequency. Using the Intel Stress test I verified the times to complete the test was less with the increased multiplier even though CPU-Z reported stock speeds. The ASUS utility shows the correct speed and temperature. I have the G3258 running at 4.3GHz turbo with an R7 260 and the system boots in under 5 seconds. Crysis 3 runs at 60 fps with Vsych engaged at 720P. All in All the system does everything I want at a great price point so I am very pleased. Board is loaded with features so I will not write about all of those since you can look at the specs. Bottom line is its solid and great for ITX builds for HTPC's or gaming. This is an update to my original review submission.

Cons: None

ASUS H97I-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Mini ITX Intel Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent ITX board. Quality components and features in a small form factor. My only gripe is that the board with latest firmware is not allowing me to overclock a new Intel G3258. I would have gone with a less expensive mainboard had I been aware of all the issues with overclocking on this unit. BIOS has a lot of features and so far the board has been solid for me with the exception of the OC issues which many others are reporting online with this same model. I have notified ASUS as well and if they come up with a solution I will update my review and rating.

Cons: Unlocked current model G3258 CPU will not overclock with this board.
