G.SKILL Sniper Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GSR
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Meets all proclaimed capacities

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: People are complaining that this doesn't run at 1866.

``Support for Extreme Memory Profile (XMP) memory modules''

You have to enable XMP support in your UEFI/BIOS.

Enabled in the Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 version 3.0 from experience jumps the 1600Mhz to 1866Mhz.

All boards that support 1866Mhz or higher must have XMP enabled to surpass 1600Mhz.

Stop posting useless reviews when you technically don't understand what you are reviewing.

Plextor M5P Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1. Price
2. Performance
3. Reliability
4. Works seamlessly with Linux (Debian)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: SSD will just get better, over time. It'll never had the density of platters until there is a new means to building 3D density chips at a cost effective price.

SSD/HDD spoils one to never go back to straight HDD.

BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 200mm Case Fan

5 out of 5 eggs Solid Design, Balanced Rotation, zero distortion 12/15/2013

This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro All Black 200mm Case Fan

Pros: First thing I noticed on the Corsair 650D I bought was the cheap large intake fan over the drive slots.

Within 2 weeks after building the AMD FX-8350 system the wobble/distortion phase in and out sinusoidal wave form predictably surfaced

Solution: This Product. Balanced, quality construction fit into the front without having to move the lower drive slots down off the mount and adjacent to the power supply.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Between the Corsair 650D, H100i liquid cooler, Gigabyte 990FX-UD3 rev. 3.0, Corsair RM 1000 this system just chews up my needs on Linux and FreeBSD.

Blender master from git compiles < 5 minutes
LLVM/Clang [LLDB, Compiler-RT, Libc++, Libcxxabi] < 7 minutes
OpenEXR master, OpenShadingLanguage master, BulletLibrary, each < 5 minutes

That's with 16BG G.Skill 1866. Looking forward to adding the other 2 sticks.

Delivery by Newegg was prompt as has become the common result when buying from a quality reseller.
