G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C10D-16GAO
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, good when it works, RMA process is smooth!

Cons: Both sticks failed. One within a few months and the other a little less than a year after purchase. Memtest86+ found the errors when the machine started BSODing.

Other Thoughts: The RAM works great when it works, and the replacement stick I got for the first failure is still going strong. I'm sending the second stick in for an RMA this week. Maybe I got a bad batch or something.

Seagate Barracuda ST1000DM003 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Stores 1TB.
Recognized instantly.
Good transfer speeds.

Cons: Makes weird beeping or clicking noises randomly, even when not being accessed.

Other Thoughts: Passes all SeaTools tests, but persists with the strange noises, even after updating the firmware.

ZOTAC GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) DirectX 11 ZT-50203-10M 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Hard to beat the price/performance ($199 w/MIR)

Cons: Either the fan is especially loud under load, or this suffers from severe coil whine. It's by far the loudest thing in the case. It's not enough to take away an egg, though.

Other Thoughts: Wear headphones when you're gaming with it.
