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

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I've had two of these sticks since 2013, and neither have ever given me any problems. Even if you are not using them for for gaming, their sleek look and affordable price is just icing on the cake of these reliable sticks. I plan on buying two more very soon to put in my desktop!

Cons: If I had to say one thing, it's that if you are building a new comp you might as well just buy two 8 gig sticks since. I've noticed that it struggles now to keep up with the RAM requirements of today, especially if you are running multiple processes and are using Win 8.1. If that's not a big issue to you then I highly recommend these sticks.

Other Thoughts: The only reason I did not take off an egg is because I'm reviewing based on my total experience with these sticks prior to my eventual upgrade. Can't blame the sticks for tech advances.

Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes

5 out of 5 eggs Affordable and Effective Cooling Solution 03/14/2014

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper TX3 - CPU Cooler with 3 Direct Contact Heatpipes

Pros: The copper cooling pipes, fan, and heatsink are all fantastic combinations to have when cooling your CPU. I bought this model to replace the stock Intel cooler and it did wonders. I went from 60C idle, 100C under load to 20-30C idle and 40-50C under load which is a huge difference. I have a 1155 CPU socket and it definitely seats well with the socket. It runs relatively quiet for me at max fan speed so sound should not be an issue. It does not feel wobbly when it is correctly installed and you know that it's really not going anywhere once mounted. Total installation time should not take longer than 15 minutes when following the instructions for your socket type.

Cons: It's rather large and heavy so make sure your case is big enough to support it. I have it on a MSI Z77A-GD65 mobo and it supports the weight just fine, but cheaper mobos might not be able to support the weight. Instructions could have been written better, but this is a minor problem after you read over them and understand what to do.

Other Thoughts: I personally had a rough time installing it because of thinking I could do it without using the instructions when it came to screwing on the mounts. If you do not screw the mounts in exactly as the picture describes for your socket type it will not install at all. I just wanted to remind anyone reading this review to please read and look at the instructions. Once I installed the brackets on correctly it fit right in without a problem. While you should follow the instructions for installing the mounting brackets you can use your preferred method on applying the thermal paste. Overall, I'd highly recommend this product because it just does its job so well.

Acer H6 Series H226HQLbid Black 21.5

Pros: Very beautiful display and it has a relatively sleek design. Has all the ports you would need, and it's not too bulky. It has a magnetic base which is nice if you need to put office supplies or personal effects like keys in a spot you want them to stay.

Cons: Working with the buttons on the monitor to change settings can be a slightly difficult but after some practice it is not too much of a big deal. Also it has a magnetic base so keep it away from your external drives and your computer.

Other Thoughts: I'm not taking any eggs off for the cons because they are not anything too serious. I really like this monitor and it is definitely deserving of its solid 5 egg rating. The pros and cons of the magnetic base essentially balance it out so I don't think it's a big deal, but more of an interesting design characteristic.
