Pros: They were on sale for Black Friday. This is my second pair of Ripjaws, the first are 3 years old and like new. The fins are low enough that there aren't issues with my Hyper 212+.
Cons: I saw a 16GB version for not much more but they sold out before I bought them :(
Other Thoughts: They work. Really well. What more is there to say? G.SKILL deserves every bit of their reputation.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's chewed up everything I've thrown at it. Black Flag, Arkham Origins, and I plan to try Tomb Raider soon. It stays super cool too (I don't think I've gone past 45C while gaming, idles around 20C). I haven't heard the fans crank up at all, so can't comment on that.
Cons: I didn't buy 2?
Other Thoughts: I'm running this inside a full tower (THOR V2), so no issues with size. The temperatures are also due in part to the case air flow, so YMMV if using a smaller case.
I got it during Thanksgiving weekend, when it came with Black Flag, Arkham Origins, and Splinter Cell. The 3 games (~$50 in resale value)+$15 MIR (and you can get a check instead of a prepaid card!) made it a GREAT deal.
Pros: Got it on sale and 750W, semi-modular, and a single 12V rail for that price was great. All cables except the 24-pin and 8/4+4pin are modular. The cables themselves are okay, they're flat and not round like in the pictures, nor are they mesh-covered.
I guess it's quiet? It's 1 of 7 fans inside my case, 2 being relatively small GPU fans, and I don't think I can hear it.
It comes with a little case for extra cables. The money would be better spent on the cables themselves but it's nice for keeping things together.
Cons: The 8-pin and 4+4-pin cables are both permanently attached to the PSU. Who would need both? They're also only JUST long enough to reach the socket in my full tower. I had to buy an extension so I could run it behind the motherboard. The 24-pin connector wasn't perfectly straight either and I had to wrestle it into the socket on my board.
I'd rather the cables be round but it's not a dealbreaker. The 24-pin cable is a bit difficult to route simply because it's so wide.
Other Thoughts: 3 eggs for the PSU itself, +1 egg because I got it so cheap.READ FULL REVIEW
