G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: This will have been the second set of this kit making it 32gb all together in my system. All four (4x8gb) modules run perfectly at the set point of 2400mhz with a simple selection of its profiles from the UEFI/Bios.

Cons: No real cons, the price is justified since I believe you get the most bang for your buck with these models. tighter timings and high clocks than many of the competition as I got both sets at 'sale price' saving me a substantial amount.

Other Thoughts: My rig is a AMD build; as follows.
FX-8350 CPU
Crosshair V Formula-Z Mobo with 2002 version UEFI
G. Skill Trident X: 4 x 8gb (32gb) @ 2400mhz
Sapphire 7970 Vapor-X Ghz Edition GPU
Windows 7 64bit Professional (Win Pro or better is needed to utilize any amount of ram above 16gb as home edition is restricted to 16gb).

I hope this helps people on both sides of the fence whether you be Intel or AMD this RAM works great for both platforms.

Cooler Master HAF XM - High Air Flow Mid Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and Two External Drive Docks
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great case. Went from a HAF 932 to the HAF XM. Great buy and nothing to be hyper critical about. Construction is more stable than its predecessor but resembles it almost entirely with fame dimensions minus the top fan/radiator housing on the XM. Space is more maximized with a new hard drive cage and smaller 3.5 inch bay shelves. Air flow is and I kid you not tenfold the 932 so everything has moving air across it from top to bottom. Everything works and works well as it was money well spent for more room and far superior internal management of cables and devices across the board, very satisfied.

Cons: Like I said, nothing to be critical about in my opinion. Great case.

Other Thoughts: My rig is a custom build.

Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner

5 out of 5 eggs Samsung 840 EVO (1TB) 10/04/2013

This review is from: Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5" MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

Pros: The drive is by far the bang for your buck as the 1$ per GB ratio ceiling for ssd's on the market today has been shattered by this series of drive. It works at advertised specs as all settings has been activated. AHCI, SATA3 ext. went from a corsair 240GT to this because of space issues, boy am I glad I did.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: System specs:
AMD FX-8350
ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z
16 GB of G.skill trident 2400mhz RAM

Used Apricorn data transfer kit to migrate my data in a about an hour and a half.
