CORSAIR Vengeance Performance 16GB (2 x 8G) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Laptop Memory Model CMSX16GX3M2B1600C9
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Working perfectly in a Lenovo Thinkpad T440p with CAS 9-9-9-24 at 1.35V as verified by CPUID. Ran memtest86 overnight with no errors. Vengeance stickers look cool.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A bit pricey for a 16GB DDR3-1600L SODIMM kit. But in nearly two decades of buying Corsair memory, I've never had a bad stick, while I've seen a lot of memory from other brands fail. So I'll gladly pay a bit extra if it means having peace of mind.

Intel 730 Series SSDSC2BP480G4R5 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Uses an actual Intel controller (not Sandforce like other more recent Intel drives), top quality MLC NAND, 5 year warranty, extremely fast, enormous for an SSD. This is basically an enterprise grade SSD at a consumer level price. With the promo code it was a few dollars cheaper than the 500GB Samsung EVO, but this is a much higher quality drive than the EVO.

Cons: No power saving features. This drive is meant for high-end desktops, not laptops.

Other Thoughts: I've owned a variety of Intel, Samsung, and Kingston drives, and in terms of real world performance, this is by far the fastest I've used.

Specs: i7 4770K, Asus Sabertooth Z87, 16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600, EVGA GTX 780 Ti Superclocked, Seasonic 1000W Platnium, Intel 730 Series 480GB SSD

4 out of 5 eggs Nice, Compact HTPC Case 06/28/2014

This review is from: SILVERSTONE Black Aluminum / Steel ML04B Micro ATX Media Center / HTPC Case

Pros: Fits in a tiny cubby in my Ikea entertainment center. It doesn't draw attention to itself, or even look like a PC with the front cover closed. Build quality is pretty decent for the price. It's small for a MicroATX case. The super slim cases like this are often Mini-ITX only.

Cons: Having both a normal sized power supply and an optical drive in this thing at the same time is a very tight fit as the optical drive backs up onto the power supply. It also won't take full sized PCI/PCIE cards, but something had to give for the case to be as slim as it is. Onboard video is so good now, you probably don't need a discrete video card for an HTPC these days anyway. Pick your CPU cooler carefully. Many will be too tall. I'm using a Cooler Master GeminII M4, which just barely fits under the support bar that goes diagonally across the top of the case.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm pretty happy with it. It seems like a good value for the price.

HTPC Specs: AMD A6-3650 APU, 8GB Kingston HyperX DDR3-1333, ASUS F1A75-M PRO, 120GB Kingston HyperX SSD, PC Power and Cooling 400W Modular
