G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL8D-8GBXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Reliable RAM without any issues. I purchased one set in the summer of 2013 and recently purchased another set to upgrade to 16GB. Both the original and the new sets work flawlessly.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: RAM was recognized immediately by the system both times. Just make sure you enable XMP profiles in your BIOS for maximum performance.

Pros: Blazing fast CPU from both a gaming and photo editing perspective. Debated between this and the 3770K model, but since I will not overclock, decided to save the money and go for the 3770.

Cons: The stock heatsink and fan included are absolutely horrible. Other reviews mention this but it is worse than my worst expectations. I had to knock an egg off for that. See comments.

Other Thoughts: When running software such as photoshop and photomatix, the cpu temps were 60 C and spiked to over 80 C with stock cooler and no overclocking. The temps on all cores even spiked to 95 C while merging a 9 exp HDR image in photomatix. I know this is still below the max rating but 90+ is beyond my comfort zone. After installing CM 212 plus, temps are back down to 25 C and spike to 50-55 C.

CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced - Gaming Mid Tower Computer Case with Carrying Handle and Windowed Side Panel - Black
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: - Great case and good airflow design with multiple fan options.
- USB 3.0
- The handles are surprisingly useful
- fits virtually any graphics card with room to spare
- came with 3 pre-installed case fans (1 rear, 2 red LED front)

Cons: I hate to leave cons blank...because there are none!

Other Thoughts: For the price you cannot beat this case ($69.99 after rebate). I also considered the CM HAF 912 case but went with the Scout because of the looks. Looks matter.
