G.SKILL Trident X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-8GTX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Must echo comments of Brian H. below; easily ran these up to the max on my board: DDR-2133@9-11-11 in 1T at 1.6v and could tweak it a little more. Oversize sink fins interfere with large cpu coolers but are easily removed with no danger of overheat, esp if placed alongside a fan.

Cons: Absolutely none at this time, they are stable and that is what matters to me. Be sure to give them enough juice and you'll avoid the glitches.

Other Thoughts: Take advantage of the discounts, they make this RAM one of the best bargains around.

Enermax ETS-T40-TB CPU Cooler With T.B.SILENCE PWM Twister Bearing Fan Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1150 and AMD FM2/FM1/AM3+

Pros: Running an FX-6300 / GA-970A inside a Corsair 550D, all settings at stock. Cool n' Quiet running with no OC, freq ranges from 1400 to 4100 Mhz. Under load I have not seen temps above 39C and got as low as 6C on idle in Core Temp (typically ranging from 10 to 28C). The sink fan spins at 1000 rpm and is whisper quiet too. FYI: I have six other 120mm case fans spinning from 500 to 1000 rpm (nothing like airflow afterall).

Cons: The thing is so BIG it defeats the purpose of a roomy case, so you can mover your hands around the board and case easily. You'll have to remove things to get to others, like your battery or any card or connection near them, including your RAM. Stay away from over-sized heat spreaders or just run two sticks, not four (so keep your needle-nose and flashlight handy). The heatsink fins are aluminum and very light. it always feels like I'll nick or bend them if I'm not careful.

Other Thoughts: Well worth it, especially on sale . . . $15 with five bucks off and a $15 AMEX rebate card. I never realized air cooling could be like this, chilly AND quiet. Job well done.

APEVIA CF312S-BK 120mm Case Fan (3-pk)

5 out of 5 eggs Revising: Fan okay, connector failed 07/02/2014

This review is from: APEVIA CF312S-BK 120mm Case Fan (3-pk)

Pros: Jumped the gun a bit. Going back to "5". Half-a-ding for faulty connector works out to a "4.5" between two reviews, but I won't RMA the fan for it! Good thing I keep old parts around, hooked up an old 3-pin connector and fan started spinning away. P&O

Cons: They should just send me a new one for my trouble!

Other Thoughts: Sure hope Vishera drops to under $100 soon. I don't wanna pay $100-$200 more for a decent processor!
