Mushkin Enhanced Radioactive 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 997006

Pros: Fast RAM with super low timings. 7-9-8-24? I mean, it doesnt get much tighter than that. Worked right out of the packaging, either by manually setting timings and speed, or loading the handy dandy XMP profile. Just picked up a 2nd set of this stuff, having purchased my last set a year ago.

Cons: None. Well, price I suppose. Was about $30 cheaper a year ago. Plus as I write this review I see that the price has dropped $5 since I ordered it (about a week ago..). Not the first time this has happened. Ugh.

Other Thoughts: Buy this stuff. Especially if you think the Radioactive heatsink is cool. Plus its Mushkin, so it's top quality to begin with.

5 out of 5 eggs Amazing, once installed.. 01/25/2012

This review is from: EVGA M020-00-000234 Superclock CPU Cooler

Pros: Large heatsink, but not too large. It's wider than it is tall, which is great for people with cases are narrow. 8 super-fat heatpipes, with HDT base design. Included red LED fan is very quiet, 4 pin connector. Very well packaged with instructions in basically every language imaginable. Heatsink is a sick black finish, with the EVGA logo on the top.

In terms of cooling performance, I am running an AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE at 4.0GHz with 1.4v core. My old heatsink was an Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 Pro; temps with that were about 38-42c idle, with 54-56c max load. With the Superclock installed, I am idling at 30c right now, but I have not tested the load temps. According to CPUID Hardware Monitor, the fan is spinning at a mere 1100 RPM, and I cant hear it over the other fans in my case.

Cons: Installation. It's complicated. Thank EVGA for decent instructions. Lot of tiny screws, washers, thumbscrews, etc. To be honest, installation is the worst part of this product. Takes forever. I figured I would be able to install it without removing the motherboard, but I was wrong. I had to remove my board to be able to tighten the screws on the heatsink to attach it to the backplate posts. Pain in the rear end, added an extra 20-30 minutes to the installation time.

Other Thoughts: For $50, this thing is an absolute steal. If you can put up with the obnoxious and somewhat tedious installation, it's def. worth the purchase.

Pros: Works perfectly fine out of the box. No issues with Windows 7 64-bit as the previous owner noted. Windows automatically detected the device and installed a default driver. I went ahead and installed the TP driver as well. No glitches or any problems have arisen from doing so. Great card. Have not dropped a single connection yet.

Cons: Absolutely none.
