G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-16GXM

Pros: It's 16gb ram on 2 sticks
It works as advertised, what else can I say?

Cons: None yet, except for them starting out at 1333, went to the bios and reset to 1600 and voila.

Other Thoughts: Went from 4 x 4gb corsair vengeance ram, which worked fine when my 2600k & asus sabertooth p67 where not overclocked. Originally I had 2 x 4gb of the corsair vengeance ram and had my 2600k OCed to 4.5 Gb and then added 2 more 4gb sticks of the same memory and had random bsod. Without it being overclocked they worked fine. Heard 4 sticks of ram were harder on the memory controller, so went looking for 2 x 8gb ram. Saw these on newegg for $64.99 and very highly rated, so grabbed them. Will be putting my oc back when Ican in the next couple days.

Pros: Bought the GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 to replace my EVGA GTX590 Classified. Couldn't be happier. Runs cooler, faster and was cheaper. Also uses a lot less electricity.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got the gtx590 in 2011 for $750 and got the GTX 980 Superclocked ACX 2.0 for $500. Ran Heaven benchmark on both and averaged 61fps with the gtx590 and 98fps with the gtx980. The gtx980 also significantly increased increased fps in games. Puts out less heat into my corsair 600t case, which makes my i7 2600k with a H80 cooler run a couple degrees cooler.

Pros: Upgraded from a GTX590. The 590 was $750 and the 980 was only $500. Heaven benchmark @1080 went from an average of 61fps to 98fps, smoothed out the new Dawn demo and in Real Myst masterpiece the fps without vsync went from low 30fps to over 100fps. I love it.

Cons: Time to retire the GTX 590, it got me though very well on many excellent games. Like losing a good friend. Well will probably keep it for a backup.

Other Thoughts: Can't wait for Obduction to come out this fall. Got it during the kickstart funding. Loved all the Myst games except for Myst V being so-so. Obduction is the reason I upgraded. Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain was a nice bonus but don't care for fps games. Might of tried it except my gaming machine isn't conected to the internet and don't care for steam. Might of been nice to get it on DVD, but oh well, didn't buy the card for the free game anyway.
