Pros: I've had this memory since mid 2011, and this memory is still going strong. At the time, I'd never heard of G.SKILL and thought I was taking a risk, because everyone else always recommended 3 other well known brands. I have never had any memory errors, and never had a DIMM go out on me. The low CAS latency is a big plus as well. Love em!
Other Thoughts: I do a lot of gaming and multitasking with no hiccups using this memory. I was so impressed with G.SKILL that on my next build I will be using their DDR3-1600 Ripjaws. Can't wait!
For this memory I have it in this system...
Windows 7 64-bit
Intel LGA 775 DG45ID Mobo
Intel e7600 Core 2 Duo (Wolfdale)
ZOTAC 1GB 128-bit GT 440 (Fermi) Video Card
This review is from: Intel BOXDG45ID LGA 775 Intel G45 HDMI Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Is an easy setup, audio sounds amazing (although I'm only using 2.1 stereo, and plan to get at least 5.1 surround), easy to use BIOS screen, and has upgrade potential for the average, budgeted computer builder. Has a 32-bit 5V PCI slot! Also good for DIY HTPC. 8GB capacity of RAM. Cool board.
Cons: Be careful of the I/O panel, especially the HDMI port, it snuck up on me!! There is a tab that you should remove, otherwise it sticks into the HDMI port upon install. Saw an earlier review with the same trouble, so i used wire cutters and the port works fine. Always double check the I/O panel before the install. Video is okay for DVD playback, but it's on-board graphics... I've had this for 3 months, and for online streaming, it's a little choppy, so I plan on upgrading to a 1GB 128-bit graphics card.... still don't know which one... Very few legacy options, no PS2 ports. Oh well.
Other Thoughts: Setup--
Rosewill case combo w/ 450w PSU
Intel Core 2 Duo e7600
4GB G.SKILL 800 MHz DDR2 RAM (2x2GB)
250GB Seagate HDD
--also the "annoying" beep when you first turn it on isn't that bad, i think people are looking for an absolutely silent
machine, but for the price it's not bad, and it can do a lot for a mATX!!
This review is from: Intel Core 2 Duo E7600 Wolfdale 3.06GHz LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor BX80571E7600
Pros: i love this processor. i'm definitely behind on getting the latest and greatest, but this is one fast processor! Being on a budget, and to see a nearly 200 dollar difference for just 1 MB cache more and a lower internal frequency, i came back to the e7600.
Other Thoughts: just keep in mind the upgrade potential if buying this in conjunction with a new motherboard. there are bunches of boards that can upgrade from this processor and go get the quad core!!READ FULL REVIEW
