G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C11D-16GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Excellent memory performs at the rated speed without issue! I also tested it at a few slower speeds and it ran great without a hitch tested no errors in MemTest86 at all speeds.

Tested all these speeds and passed in Memtest86:
DDR3-2133 10-10-10-30 @ 1.65v
DDR3-1866 9-9-9-27 @ 1.55v
DDR3-1600 8-8-8-24 @ 1.55v

Also glad these memory modules didn't have tall heatspreaders... a lot of them are too tall and won't install if you have a big CPU cooler.

Cons: Nothing that I can think of!

Scythe KM02-BK 5.25
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Do not Buy 05/30/2012

This review is from: Scythe KM02-BK 5.25" Bay Fan Controller

Pros: Nice front display

Cons: I've had 3 channels on my fan controller die within a year. Plus all the temp probes stopped working within about 7 months.

Also it can't operate the Scythe Slipstream fans I bought at anything slower than about 1200-1400RPM. I was hoping for around 800-1000RPM but the fans just stop if I try slower speeds!!

Save yourself the trouble and don't buy this!! I attempted to RMA through Scythe, but never got a response. After a month of trying I gave up with them!

Scythe KM02-BK 5.25
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

1 out of 5 eggs Piece of Junk 05/19/2012

This review is from: Scythe KM02-BK 5.25" Bay Fan Controller

Pros: Controls 4 fans
Nice Display

Cons: 1 of the fan controllers died after about 6 months, the second just died after about a year of ownership.

The worst thing is when the fan controller dies there is no indication that your fan stopped!!! No alarm or anything.

Other Thoughts: I won't be buying Scythe products again!
