HyperX Black 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX16C9B1BK2/8X
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 8GB of dual-channel DDR3 1600 memory with heat spreaders from a reliable brand. What's not to like?

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: My build:

Intel i5-3350P Ivy Bridge
ASRock Z77M mATX Motherboard
Kingston HyperX Black 8GB DDR3 1600
MSI Twin Frozr Radeon R9 270X 2GB
Samsung 840 EVO 120GB SSD
CM Silent Pro M2 620W
CM N200 mATX Mini Tower

Running Tomb Raider 2013 at 1360x766 (HDMI -> older Samsung 32" 720p/1080i HDTV) with everything completely maxed, full anti-aliasing, tesselation, etc... No noticeable slowdown at any point thus far - this machine is a beast.

Cooler Master N200 - Mini Tower Computer Case with Front 240mm Radiator Support and Ventilated Front Panel
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Small size, excellent airflow, understated. White power LED is elegant. Easily fit a large GPU, with room to upgrade to a large CPU HSF in the future. Removable drive cages and decent cable management options.

Cons: The rolled bezel of the top PCI slot interferes with the HDMI port of my MSI 270X GPU. The cable baaarrrrely makes a connection - I'll probably have to take a dremel to it at some point. I eventually found a sweet spot between wiggling the card in its slot and angling the cable - not an ideal solution, but it works.

Not worth knocking off an egg, as I'm pretty sure that this is a somewhat unique problem with this specific case/GPU combo, but it's worth mentioning.

Other Thoughts: My build:
