This review is from: Super Talent Pico-C 16GB 16 GB Gold USB 2.0 Flash Drive
Pros: Small size, solid metal, durable, great capacity.
Cons: Extremely slow. This is the slowest flash drive I own by far.
Other Thoughts: I love the size and look of this drive, but it's just too slow to be useful. It also get's quite hot!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: No failures with G.Skill. This is solid, tested, RAM.
Cons: The FX8350 processor will run 2 sticks in Dual Channel mode just fine at 2133. However, if you try to add 2 more sticks (16 Gig 4x4), you may be stuck at 1600. No matter what I tried, I cannot post above 1600. Apparently the processor's memory controller has a bandwidth limitation.
Other Thoughts: On the plus side though, you can tighten the timings to 8,8,8,24,38 at 1600.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper T4 - CPU Cooler with 4 Direct Contact Heatpipes
Pros: Keeps an overclocked FX-8350 at 61 degrees on Prime95.
Includes brackets for a second 120 mm fan. AM3+ mounting does not require a bracket or backplane support change.
This cooler does include a packet of thermal compound, but I did not use it. I have a tube of Arctic MX5.
Cons: The only con is that the AM3 mounting (at least on my Gigabyte board) points the fans toward the top and bottom. If your case to not have top mounted fans, the internal temps can get too hot for safe operation. Granted, this only occurs when testing on Prime95 maxes out all 8 cores at 100% utilization, generating massive amounts of heat.
Other Thoughts: Under normal load, this cooler keeps the CPU temps in the mid 40's. Even under full load with a modest overclock this cooler can keep the CPU at a safe temp provided your case has sufficient airflow,READ FULL REVIEW
