Pros: Very attractive tho they are rather small compared to my other hardware in my case so they don't really stand out. They deffinately get the job done and were recognized on my first boot up in my AMD build. Didn't bother to check what it was running at under the auto settings of my Asus mobo went right on ahead and changed to 1600mhz ect. one I had my OS win7 installed and made sure everything was working properly. FAST! This ram is also a lot cheaper then other modules I was looking at that had the same specs. I will be sticking with Gskill from now on as I was very pleased with this order they are my new #1 pick for ram.
Cons: Idk if its the new mobo or the ram but it was a little bit harder to push these into the slots then I felt it should have been. I dont like it when I feel as if something is going to snap.
Other Thoughts: Never got an item that was DOA or late from newegg. Always get the item earlier then expected except now I do expect to see them the next day ha ha. In fact that has happened twice now this was ordered with about 5 other items a rather large order in my book anyways and came two days after purchase which I did at night. Love the ram and am going to order another 2x2gigs of this when I get the chance. Got the money now but kinda sitting on it since i Just got a blue ray drive and some case accessories ect. and those should be here monday. I only use 25% of the ram on idol "win7" and max of 35-45% running several applications including wow at full resolution and all graphics set to High. Love this ram so much I will deff be sticking with Gskill for my ram needs!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Amazing graphics, easy to install, worked with the drivers off the disk just fine. Works great with windows 7. Came with a converter for d-sub to dvi which was great cus my monitor came with a dsub cord instead of a dvi which i thought it was suppose to so that gave me a chance to use it while waiting for the dvi cable i just ordered.. wont be waiting long i got it off newegg. This card is just amazing!
Cons: Did not have a crossfire bridge T_T Want to order another one in the near future not that I will ever need that much power or Vram but I simply want it just in case they sell out or stop producing this model. Rather large... also takes up two slots, it covers one of my PCIE slots.
Other Thoughts: Does everything you could imagine! You can even run three monitors as one display meaning that you can stretch the screen across all three monitors! How kewl is that? Lots and lots of features but it also worked right out of the box. The installation of the drivers took seconds in my beastly build... I imagine they would in any ha ha. Works with win7.

Pros: Easy install! The heatsink/fan that it came with was rather heavily pre lubed up with thermal grease which made me uneasy.. It currently runs at about 40-41c degrees idle and 46c is the most I have seen it go up to. This was while running WoW, HoN, several firefox tabs, music, aim, and windows 7. Keeps things running cool in a cool case so I am not so sure that its whats doing it. I have fans fans fans! Ha ha most of them blue led and the mobo temp sits at about 24c at all times... Not sure whats good or not I don't care to much about how well my setup scales to other ones so long as mine does what I need it to do. It does and I expect that this cpu will last me a good 5-10 years! I am truly immpressed.
Cons: I have no idea what I am going to do with all this power T_T Have temporarily O/C to 3.6ghz but I have yet to use more then like 15-20% of the cpu Usually sits around like 4-8% if i am just running 2-3 programs. I would have liked to have installed an aftermarket fan/heatsink that was a little more stylish then this one but decided I could use the experience of the install anyways.
Other Thoughts: This was my first build really. I can not say that everything I said here was entirely accurate. Just that one thing I would mention is that this heatsink had thermal grease on it in advanced so you don't need to buy any. Also don't waste ur time looking for it ready to have a heart attack because u have all your parts you need except this lolREAD FULL REVIEW
