CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 Desktop Memory Model CMZ8GX3M2X2133C9R
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I was able go up to 2132 on a GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ mo/bo Rev 3.0 with BIOS ver FB. My timings are
for 1866 MHz,: tCL = 10 10 10 25
for 2133 MHz,: tCL = 12 12 12 27
XMS profile states 9-9-9-24,


Performance wise you might be better off with lower latency and lower clock, 1866. Reaches higher clock with DDR Voltage around 1.555v
I will be validating 1.500v at the top speed with Win 7 memtest.

Cons: I have two GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ mo/bo (Rev. 1.1 and Rev 3.0) and neither one would accept the XMS profiles on auto DRAM timings.

Timings spec given can not be achieved as stated on their box and on Newegg. Neither mo/bo's BIOS wouldn't even post at 1600 or at 1866 with auto settings. This memory defaults to 1333 which is probably the safe and stable for most systems.

Other Thoughts: Watch out on the Warranty. Warranty coverage is only supported if you ship the memory to CHINA. The cost of
shipping is going to be more than the memory. Sooo ... no effective support and no replacement. Have you tried to ship anything to China with a tracking number. Please support companies that at least has a US/CA address for replacements and support.

Regardless of the link on Newegg, there is a card in the memory box that states Warrant Claims can ONLY be processed when the memory is returned/sent to China.

NETGEAR ReadyNAS Pro 2 (RNDP2000-100NAS) Diskless System Network Storge for Business
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Very impressed with online support, documentation and general useability. I was temped to buy some really low cost NAS from a Shell Shocker but started to read reviews. Then on the same day a deal for this one was going on with two 2TB WD Red drives. It was $100 more but it w as well worth it. The construction of the enclosure is good. You can hear the fan but it is not loud at all even when I'm rebuilding the RAID.

While the RAID was rebuilding I was getting about 33%-37% network utilization on a Win 7 64-bit going through two 1Gb network switches. Actual file write is around 40.3 MByte/sec, while the RAID was rebuilding.

Cons: The clearance with the right drive bay is narrower so you'll need low profile screw heads to clear the enclosure.

Be warned that any drive you stick in it will be AUTOMATICALLY converted for RAID. That means it gets blown off. That sucks but makes it very simple for the less technically inclined (newbies).

Other Thoughts: There recommendations of changing on board fan
with a quieter one. There is automatic variable speed fan control.
