G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C9D-16GTX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Very fast ram, especially running at 1.6V. Great value for such performance.
Red is the color du jour, and the red heatsink tops on this one makes a presence in my case.
Heatsink top is removable if you need clearance, Clarence.
For my latest board (ASRock 990FX Exteme 9), XMP 1.2 and 1.3 work and test stable using OCCT & Prime95.
You can use the heatsink as weapon if everyone loses power and we go back to the dark ages.

Cons: It didn't work at anywhere near advertised speeds in my previous board: Gigabyte 990FXA-UD5 rev 3.0. Not only would XMP not work, but I couldn't manually get it close either. Best I could get was somewhere around an 8-9-9 at 1600 (not horrible, but...)

Other Thoughts: Though it certainly should have worked on the Gigabyte board, I'm not holding the performance on the Gigabyte board against this ram. I couldn't get another set of Ram to work on it at advertised speeds either. Didn't really like going above 1600 MHz.

SAMSUNG 850 EVO MZ-75E500B/AM 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast Fast Fast. Multi-tasks well. Long-ish warranty. Put it in and go.
Just about spot on speeds. Top 10 performance on nearly every benchmark, at less than $0.38/GB

Cons: Not an 850 Pro. Doesn't tuck me in at night.

Other Thoughts: When these drives go on sale, they cost nearly the same as the mainstream drives, for top-end performance. I spent too much time looking at benchmarks and watching for deals, only to come back to the Samsungs. There were other drives that would pop up here and there, but you can save yourself a lot of research if you just get this drive.
