Pros: ...do I buy G.SKILL. I play Left 4 Dead 2 and either Steam has pushed out a great update or this ram has made a noticeable improvement in how well my system runs it. Ran nicely with Kingston Hyper X but not near as well as with this ram. One thing I would suggest is to buy 2 sticks of 8GB if you plan on running it at 1866Mhz (AMD FX CPU). Found out the hard way that FX processors will only support 2 sticks of ram at 1866Mhz. I bought 2 4GB sticks, loved them so much I ordered 2 more and then, boot failure. Not the rams fault, but after research I came to find out about the limitation. Sent an email to GSKILL and within HOURS they replied confirming the limitation and answering my questions concerning using it on a motherboard with a Phenom II. I stuck the other 2 sticks in it the Phenom II rig and it set up to 1333Mhz (fastest stock speed for that processer) and it kills.
Cons: Stay up too late helping zombies reach a better tomorrow.
Other Thoughts: If you plan on installing it with a FX CPU and running it at 1866, remember the 2 slot limitation.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Silverstone FP35B USB 2.0 Card Reader with extra silver front panel
Pros: Nice Idea. I bought this because I wanted a unit with HD audio jack, card reader and Esata.
Cons: First unit had a short in audio jack due to poor soldering. I removed a glob that was touching its case but it still had a lot of background noise in the headphone jack. I returned it to Silverstone ($11 more invested) the noise in the replacement was worse and the Esata port is non functional.
Other Thoughts: I had a Silverstone SST-FP32-B and it has very clear sound and worked great (No card reader or Esata.) I went with a Rosewill card reader and am using the AC97 jack in the AeroCool fan controller. This thing is a waste of time and money.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Scythe KM02-BK 5.25" Bay Fan Controller
Pros: The pictures don't do it justice. Nice chrome trim around unit, display and knobs. Works well and seems well made. You can turn the fans off if you want to. Wires were plenty long enough in my rig. You can easily disable the buzzer( Yeh !) Newegg got it here fast, you just can't beat these guys.
Cons: A little more expensive than some units. Not as graphical as some other units.
Other Thoughts: I just wanted something simple that would hold up for a while (doesn't seem like there is much to go wrong with it.) Looks great in my NZXT M59 case mounted just above the power button and usb ports. The readout colors match up nice with the power and HD lights. Display has kind of a "retro" look to it. The numbers fluctuate and might bother some people but I think it gives it more style.READ FULL REVIEW
