Foxconn H97M Plus LGA 1150 Intel H97 HDMI 4 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Cheap, nice features like RAID, SATA Express.

Cons: XMP does not work, even with updated firmware. 1600MHz memory runs at "1400", if that's even possible.

Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for. With all of them peeps jumping off buildings overthere, no wonder the qualify is sub-par. The MB works and has nice features, but not as advertised. (2 eggs instead of 1).

Team Vulcan 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model TXD316G1600HC9DC-V
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Cheap when on sale; XMP sets modules to 1600 automatically; Memtest 86 successfully passed eight modules (four, 2x8 packs; 64 GBs total)

Cons: Took a long time in testing all eight modules for days, overnight.

Other Thoughts: Black Friday / Cyber Monday deals are the best time to buy.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3L 1600 (PC3L 12800) Laptop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GRSL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: 1600 @ CAS 9

Cons: 25% failure rate based on four modules
not cheap
they're 9-9-9-28 instead of 9-9-9-24

Subjective: although they're 'low voltage', they run real hot to the touch. This will cause problems as there are no fans for the memory modules. I hope you live in an air conditioned environment when using this laptop: hello Antarctica!!

Other Thoughts: For whatever reason, RAM pricing has increased from the past few years. These modules should have been half the current price by now. I'm sure there's another price-fix going on... JK ;-)

My laptop started locking up and overheating in the memory module area (Lenovo W540). Lenovo built-in memory checker (short and long) did not find problem, but Memtest86 did.

Module died two months after purchase so no help from NewEgg. Had no choice, but to engage G.SKILL for RMA.
