Patriot Viper 3 Low Profile Red 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model PVL316G213C1KR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Low profile and a good deal for the speed and price paid. XMP compatibility

Cons: I had to adjust the voltage northward of default to obtain stability. This is also noted by other professional reviewers. Newegg did not allow my first attempt at reviewing as I posted the link, I suggest searching the web. The good news was that it was a slight adjustment (1.51V) in my case and I am perfectly happy with the results. Others had to bring these to 1.55V to achieve stability.

Other Thoughts: I would purchase again on greenfield system. All in all Patriot put out a product that was not satisfactory from a plug and play perspective, hence the two egg decrement. As I had read about the issue during the shipping time I knew what was happening when the system would crash and was easily able to remedy.

ASUS Z97M-PLUS LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent build quality. Worked out of the box and I really enjoyed the bios upgrade process compared to years past. Used with I7-4970.

Cons: Not a knock against the board in general, but the Hackintosh community lists support for this one. It's a half truth. The problem is that without a discrete graphics card the HD 4600 does not work alone without the 'IGPEnable=No' statement added. Performance with the statement is P### poor. Apparently other motherboards do not have this issue. Beware that the #1&2 SATA port headers are easily bent and could be useless without care.

Other Thoughts: Overall pleased with build. Backed off to a Windows install which works well. Will wait for native v9 support and try again.

Rosewill SP-5330 - 2.1-Channel Subwoofer Speaker System for PCs - 25W RMS
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: The title says it all. I replaced an old Logitech system that failed with this on the family computer. This low price option is performing well in this capacity.

Cons: The previous system which cost 3X the price definitely provided a richer sound stage, but don't let that deter you. This is a cost effective 2 speaker with Sub woofer system. I would buy again based on the requirement.
