G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: These work perfectly for my needs. I use very demanding applications like Adobe After Effects, Sony Vegas, and frequently have a combination of editing programs open at once. I also occasionally play RAM hungry games (on ultra settings with over 1k mods for some of them).

These beauties handle all of the above without a hitch.

Cons: This has nothing to do with the RAM, really, but it would be nice if the screws for the fins weren't so tiny. I have a beast of a HSF and there was no way I could use them, which is a real shame because they are aesthetically pleasing.

It was fairly easy to remove them, but I do have small hands.

Other Thoughts: I have an Asus Sabertooth 990FX motherboard, so I had to clock these at 18 instead of 24 in the UEFI.

Here's some extra info in case anyone was curious.

Here are my idle timings using CPU-Z:
NB Frequency 1806.2 MHz
668.9 MHz
FSB:DRAM: 3:10

With only some minor applications running (like a messenger or music program) and 6-7 browser tabs up, only 20-30% of the RAM is being used for me.

Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

5 out of 5 eggs Great Budget Headset 11/24/2014

This review is from: Creative Fatal1ty Gaming Headset

Pros: This is a great headset for gaming. The sound is very clear and you can hear the little things developers add in games and it creates a pretty immersive environment. The actual hardware was surprisingly sturdy and handled pretty bad abuse along with moving across several states.

Cons: This bad boy finally died on me recently after owning it for over a year and I'm not very nice to headsets, so this isn't really a con. If you take care of your stuff, these will last you a good 2-3 years I would think.

The mic is pretty awful because you have to practically make out with it for people to hear you, but on the upside - they can't really hear what's going on in the background, which is a HUGE plus. Regardless, I shouldn't have to lick the piece for people to hear me. This isn't a gigantic problem for me, so no egg off.

Other Thoughts: Don't bother trying to listen to music on these if you're an audiophile. It took massive tweaking to get the sound just right, but this isn't really a con because, well, these aren't meant for music.

Swing-Arm Lamp - Black

This review is from: Swing-Arm Lamp - Black

Pros: It is a great lamp and sits on my desk perfectly. I've had to quickly move it before and in my haste - it didn't scratch my desk's finish. That's always a huge plus. I use it for lighting to repair watches, handvacs, and various small electronics. It illuminates everything I need to see and it is very easy to move around.

Cons: None that I can think of, really. The instructions are pretty awful, but it doesn't require a genius to assemble; it's pretty straight forward.

Other Thoughts: Be careful when mounting it, you can accidentally pinch yourself!
