G.SKILL Sniper Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-14900CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: In some cases ram requires a little tweaking. A bit of voltage, latency adjustments, clock adjustments in order to be perfectly stable. In both my 990 and 890 board it worked perfectly.

I'm not pushing it too hard, 1666 currently with 9.9.9.22 timings. I'm using a PhenomII B.E. overclocked to 4.4 ghtz so pushing high clock on the memory tends to generate more heat in the die than it does performance. It runs perfectly at the advertised clock rate and latencies, this is just a sweet spot for my setup. No voltage tweaks were required at all to make it stable at any clock I've tried.

Cons: It's better than the 1600 sniper I bought a few months back. Wish I could trade that set in for another set of this. My 1600 would flake once a month or so, I ordered this as a replacement knowing headroom would help timings and stability.

Other Thoughts: I"m quite happy with it. It clears under my giant cinder-block sized tower cooler without issue. It works as advertised, possibly a bit better than advertised. Simply good ram.

GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 6 x SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: AMD processors (phenomII's and below) are only certified to DDR3 at 1333 by TWO sticks. There are TWO controllers in the processor (not on the motherboard) that allow full bandwidth to two only.

This does not mean You cannot make 4 work, it does not mean they will not run at 1600, it means the PROCESSOR not the motherboard is typically Your limit. Motherboards do not contain the memory controller. They're certified to higher speeds to tell You the boards circuitry will be stable if a future chip supports it. PLEASE educate Yourself before slamming a board for Your lack of knowledge.

Cons: People do not research architecture of the parts they buy before trying to make improper setups work.

Other Thoughts: Going past 1333 with any phenom II chip is an overclock of the design of the memory controller in the processor. IT will be more dependent upon the individual chip, and the timings used than board. FM1-series is higher (1600 is already supported) and bulldozer promises even higher in the near future with 4 sticks possible at high speed. If You want fast ram with an AMD stick with 2 sticks of ram NOT four. If You want to be cheap and get just more ram, then do so by dropping speed to 1333 or 1000 in order to be stable.

Syma S009 AH-64 Apache 3ch RC Remote Control Helicopter

2 out of 5 eggs not worth it IMO 07/14/2011

This review is from: Syma S009 AH-64 Apache 3ch RC Remote Control Helicopter

Pros: Pretty lights, looks very good considering low weight.

VERY durable and sustainable in crashes.

Cons: All You should plan on doing, is crashing it.

Hopefully it is just the one I got, but it was impossible to fly. I'm not new to R/C stuff. I know heli's are not "easy" but I have friends with little ones that are not that difficult to do basic things like take off, and land without changing time zones.

This little unit is impossible. It would not trim to even close to a zero. It would intermittantly start spinning no amount of correction would fix it. Trim until it would not spin, go up a little, down a little, and spins start again. Would randomly pick a direction, start spinning and fly that way. It's first outdoor flight on a really calm day, it started off well, hit about 10 feet up then decided to go full throttle, full spin and climb at least 40 feet in the air ignoring all input. Hit the end of radio range then fell like a very light rock. It flies very well, if You call throwing a spinning brick from an airplane and watching it hit the ground flight.

Other Thoughts: I was disappointed. It looked nice, sounded nice, appeared to be a good deal for 30$ It turned out to be junk and not worth the time spent waiting on it to charge. I don't know if new egg will take it back since it is lightly damaged now. I don't think it's a "fair" product as it seems to "run away" and completely ignore controller input at any random point in time it wishes.

Save Your money, buy one a little nicer. Some of the 70-100$ units on here are very well made and considerably more reliable
