Pros: Works great on my RIVE at 2400 MHz. Stable out of the box at this speed with minimal tweaking.
Cons: The included cooling fans (GSKILL) are impossible to mount on the RIVE. No room for the mounting clips on the sides.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Incredible, light-weight Ultrabook. Fast! SATA3, 8 GB memory, USB 3, GT650 graphics etc. Great looking screen.
Ready to go out of the box with RAID0 enabled and minimal bloatware installed.
Cons: Windows 8, bleh! Make sure you get Classic Shell and SkipMetroSuite so you can get rid of that pesky metro start screen. Otherwise Windows 8 seems faster and perkier.
Other Thoughts: This is probably the best notebook I've ever owned. Great balance of size, weight, performance etc. I love it!
The backup OS and files are on an enclosed DVD, but this unit does not have a DVD player (scratching my head). They should have put a bootable USB thumb drive in there IMHO.
Pros: Bought 8 drives and put them in a SATA III raid 6 and they are smokin! Read speed is about 4 GBPS, write about 1.5 GBPS. Stable and reliable.
Other Thoughts: I bought 8 SATA III SSD drives from another vendor (their name rhymes with OWC) and 5 of the 8 drives failed in the first 3 days. The Corsair drives are not failing.READ FULL REVIEW
