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

Pros: Second set of these. I had the older revision and they would not work with these. They need to update the picture to show that these are for the Z97 platform. The older Z77 were 1 rank and 4 banks. These are 2 ranks and 8 banks. I had to sell the other set so I could fill 4 slots with matching sticks. EGGCELLENT! G Skill has earned my business. This doesn't reflect on anybody else. They've just put themselves on top of the list whenever I need to build another system.

Cons: It's winter and It's cold outside? It gets dark too early.

Other Thoughts: Once you learn how to set up your bios (system agent, remove the bottleneck, so on) and tweak some power settings, you can get a bit more out of them. I'm not going to show you how I did it. You may harm your system if you do it wrong. Different things can occur on a different board.

CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW)  High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs Almost believed it wasn't working, until... 01/23/2015

This review is from: CORSAIR Hydro Series H60 (CW-9060007-WW) High Performance Water / Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm

Pros: When I first turned on the system, after a very easy 5min installation, the fan wasn't spinning. I had my monitoring program up and running and saw that the temps were fine. The pump had a faint gargle sound that soon went away. Must be from a small amount of air that is trapped. The fan began to spin slowly. Almost like a drunk walking. I got into the bios and adjusted the PMW to make the fan spin faster. Now, I still can't hear a thing and the fan rotates at around 6oo rpm. Heat must build before the fan really gets moving. I can hear a roach fart next to this pump. This seems to be a winner.
I never was going to get one until I started reading about manufacturers using better hoses. The old-style cheap hoses were cracking and ruining systems.

Corsair has made me a believing customer.

Cons: If I only had use for 5 more.

Other Thoughts: If you hear some air in the pump you may try to turn your system sideways (briefly & carefully) so the air can escape the pump. Make sure to mount the radiator with the inlet and outlet hoses on the bottom. This way any air that is in the system will migrate to the top of the rad and never circulate again. It's near impossible to remove all air from any system. This includes autos.

Try your pump on CPU_OPT and use the fan on any other header you want. I'm using SYS_1 which is right next to where I mounted the pump. Try using the PMW setting above the stock .75, and use one around 1.25 to 1.5

ASUS VS229H-P Black 21.5
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Overall quality is superb. When you first turn it on you may get worried and see some bleeding. Do not worry. Once it's up and running you will see quality that is only available at a much higher price tag. Sharpness is top notch. One trick is to use the menu and set it on game mode. The contrast is much better, but the saturation is too heavy for everyday use. It will look much better if you set saturation at a range of 30 to 40 for a more accurate color level.

Cons: None to speak of. I got the first one and it had an issue with a couple of pixels. Talked to Newegg and they quickly RMA'd it and the replacement is flawless. Anyone who has a problem with the best retailer around just doesn't know that respect is a 2 way street.

Other Thoughts: Thanks to Newegg and to Asus for this fabulous monitor.
