Pros: Nice pair. Run Nice
Cons: Obviously, from what most of you guys have read, the sticks ship stock as 1333. The issue I am having is whenever I try to OC the RAM up to the 1866, my computer crashs before hitting bios. I've tried using the XMP profiles, I tried manually entering all of the timings, I tried changing the voltage up to 1.65, I tried everything. So for right now it is stuck at 1333 even though I paid for the 1866 speed.
Other Thoughts: Build:
Motherboard: BioStar Z87x 3D
CPU: Intel i5 4670k 3.4ghz quad-core
Hard Drive: Samsung 840 Pro Series 256GB SSD
Video Card: Gigabyte GeForce GTX770 WindForce
PSU: ThermalTake TR2 500w
This review is from: BitFenix Spectre Pro BFF-LPRO-23030B-RP 230mm Blue LED Case Fan
Pros: Looks cool.
Cons: I have no idea how they planned on mounting this fan. It's supposed to be a 230mm, but wasn't even close to fitting in the 230mm fan area of my NZXT Phantom. No instructions, no online guides, nothing. No way of hooking this in and if there is, there is something they are not telling me.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 Pro - 64-bit
Pros: The switch between the regular desktop and metro is a lot more seamless than i thought. This was a major concern for me because I saw them as separate entities. They are not; they are one thing: Windows 8.1. Although it does take some getting used to, the new UI is much simpler to move from place to place and close things and go here and there. Just little motions and clicks and nothing seems to get in the way of another (except maybe the bottom left start button corner if you have to click something down there). Also the windows 8 apps available through metro create an even more seamless experience moving between some of your favourite programs.
Cons: Although I love the side screen menus, there are sometimes that clicking things in corners is kind of difficult, but not entirely.
Other Thoughts: A lot of people are complaining about the windows account. I understand they were kind of forcing it, but when I realized i could just sync my current gmail account that i use with my windows account, it wasn't so much as a bother.READ FULL REVIEW
