Patriot Viper 3 32GB (4 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model PV332G213C1QK
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Works absolutely great in my OC'd 4770K rig with an Asus Pro Z87 motherboard. The XMP profile in the UEFI finds the memory just fine and it runs at a full DDR3-2133 while only needing a 1.5V drive voltage. Many other kits in this range require 1.65V to hit these speeds.

Even though having 32GB of RAM and running the RAM at high-speeds is generally bad for overclocking, I have my 4770K running fine at 4.7GHz with this RAM, so I've got nothing to complain about!

Cons: Due to inflation in DDR3 prices, this memory is now more expensive than when I bought it, which is rare in the world of computing. I got it for $250 at the beginning of March and waited to use it in my new build that I put together at the beginning of the month.

This isn't a knock on this particular RAM, just an observation about DDR3 price trends lately.

HP JE009A#ABA Ethernet Switch V1910-48G Ethernet Switch

5 out of 5 eggs 2 Years Of Great Service & Still Working 01/24/2013

This review is from: HP JE009A#ABA Ethernet Switch V1910-48G Ethernet Switch

Pros: This switch replaced a completely disfunctional Linksys switch that decided to spontaneously self-destruct after 2 weeks of use. The management features are good, the switch actually works at gigabit speeds, and it has been rock-solid reliable for 2 years of use (and is still going strong).

Cons: Some would say price, but I strongly disagree: You get what you pay for and the actual reliability more than makes up for the price difference vs. cheap switches. If your network reliability has any importance to you whatsoever, those cheap switches are actually more expensive because they fail at the drop of a hat.

Other Thoughts: This is actually a 3Com part that is relabeled as HP since HP bought out 3Com.

APEX MJ-16 Black Steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case ATX12V SFX 250W Power Supply

4 out of 5 eggs Bare bones but works fine 08/29/2012

This review is from: APEX MJ-16 Black Steel MicroATX Mini Tower Computer Case ATX12V SFX 250W Power Supply

Pros: I've had an Atom server in this box using the built-in power supply running for 2.5 years now and it has done the job well and quitely. This is a no-frills box, but I've been able to get 3 full-size HDDs + an SSD with the OS disk in without any issues and it works reliably.

Cons: You get what you get: The build quality is not insanely great (not insanely bad either though). One of the front plastic covers on the 5.25" drive bays was flimsy and popped out. Nothing fatal and if you were putting an optical drive in you'd want it out anyway.

Other Thoughts: Can't complain about the price. It's no overclocking monster window case, but it does what it says it will do.
