G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap, usually reliable

Cons: So, ever since I purchased this RAM, one stick has been defective. I sent an RMA request in online, never heard back. Used the e-mail address that THEY provided, mail server bounced it back as invalid. Called the number listed online - no one answers, actually, the line just goes silent.

You can take a risk, but, if there's a problem, good luck getting ANY support from them. Oh, and I am sure they will respond, as usual, telling me to contact them with this review.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Good quality RAM with nice looking heat sink, at not too bad a price.

Cons: SET TIMING MANUALLY! After installing these on my Z97 chip set MB, Windows kept throwing a memory error. Eventually, I went into the BIOS and configured the timing manually to match that on the front and the problem went away. First RAM I have ever owned that was not successfully configured by a BIOS, that's why I knocked an Egg off. I know how to fix it, but some people may not

BYTECC PCIe SATAIII 6Gbps 1 INTERNAL SATA port + 1 EXTERNAL eSATA port Host Card Model BT-PES321i
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: It has an IDE port, if you still have a drive that needs it

Cons: This card caused a new build of Windows 7 to crash CONSTANTLY. After 30 - 40 minutes, the OS would freeze up and then I would get the BSOD. Furthermore, it added an additional 30+ seconds to total boot time. Once I removed this, Windows 7 booted in less than 20 seconds and has not crashed since. This card is totally WORTHLESS!

Other Thoughts: I have been building PC's for 15 years. It is a hit and miss affair sometimes. But, this card is definitely not worth the risk. The machine I was building was for my son, so no harm done professionally. But, if it were for a paying customer, they would be justifiably upset.
