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: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Second set works at the XMP profile settings no problem. Stylish heatsinks if you can use them. First set had one bad DIMM. Computer refused to POST with it in. NewEgg was eggcellent and approved my RMA and got me the pre-paid shipping label within a few hours. Turn around was about a week and a half shipping time.

If it hadn't been for the timely processing of the RMA, I probably would have deducted two eggs, but NewEgg won one back with their prompt attention.

Cons: First kit was bad. I usually stick to Corsair or Kingston (in my opinion the cornerstones of the RAM business), but I'd read good things about G.Skill and they tend to have the faster enthusiast kits, so I thought I'd give them a try. I've had new RAM that was faulty, but never a kit that caused my system not to POST. I know it happens, it's just never happened to me.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably try G.Skill again. However it's never a good thing though when a first time customer's experience is a bad one. G.Skill should be extremely grateful that NewEgg was able to turn this into a positive experience. Thankfully the second kit worked without a hiccup, just set the memory to the XMP profile and it boot with no issues. Had this been my first experience, I would most certainly have picked 5 eggs.

BYTECC BT-3260ATSX-SL Silver 32

5 out of 5 eggs Excellent Product 01/15/2009

This review is from: BYTECC BT-3260ATSX-SL Silver 32" - 60" Double Arm Extended TV Wall Mount

Pros: Like the title says this is an excellent product. I had no problems mounting this to the wall. All the hardware is available to cover every contingency. No problems mounting my TV to it either.

Cons: None really. It's pretty heavy, but that isn't really a fault, it's got to be this heavy to do what it does.

Other Thoughts: If you need a wall mount that extends this far for a heavy TV, this is your mount.

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Light (compared to other aftermarket HSF)
Cools well for it's size.
Price.

Cons: Stupid push-pins.
Not quiet when CPU is under load.

Other Thoughts: I used this to cool my wifes E6700 which is clocked stock (2.66GHz). The stock cooler just wasn't getting it done for me as I run BOINC on her PC. Under load with the Intel HSF, I was seeing core temps up around 60-62C. With AC Freezer 7 Pro, same operating conditions I see 48-50C so I am seeing a good 10-12 degree drop under load. That and this cooler is now just above $20 before shipping, you can't ask for more value. I am not sure how much mileage you would get if you were OC'ing.

I listed the push-pins as a con, but I want to add a caveat. I am still not thrilled about them, but these seemed to lock in more positively than the ones that came on the Intel cooler. It also simplifies the installation since you don't have to remove the motherboard (if it's already installed in a working system). I had this heatsink installed in less than 5 minutes, and that includes removing the old TIM.
