G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's RAM, it's 1600, it worked out of the box? It's a pretty cool looking RAM stick.

Cons: None, it worked and runs as fast as it should.

Other Thoughts: Not much to say about it, got what I expected, and it looks good.

Intel Core i5-3570 Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3.4GHz (3.8GHz Turbo Boost) LGA 1155 77W Desktop Processor Intel HD Graphics 2500 BX80637i53570
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's an Intel, ou are getting what you expect, great performance and reliability. The stock cooler was easy to install, comes with thermal paste applied and keeps this baby cool enough. The cooler is also quiet, and does have a slight buzz as some others have said, but it is so much quieter than my last one it is a huge improvement.

Cons: None as of yet.

Other Thoughts: I do not usually play around with over clocking, so I can not comment on that, but I'm sure it would handle a little boost with the stock cooler.

4 out of 5 eggs Not as bad as i thought it would be 07/20/2014

This review is from: Microsoft Windows 8.1 - Full Version (32 & 64-bit)

Pros: I was very skeptical of Windows 8 after hearing so much negativity towards it, but so far I have had no real issue with it. It runs fast and smooth, is easy enough to figure out and set up easy. Installed on an SSD in less than 20 minutes, and had a nice little tutorial to show you some of the key new features.

Cons: Seems as though the Control Panel has been cut by 75%. I can not say whether they have hid some of the control that Windows 7 had, or if it has been removed completely. Switching from the start menu at times can be a little annoying, but it only takes a few minutes to get used to it.

Other Thoughts: Overall I am very happy I decided to switch to Window 8, and have not regretted it yet. I just wish the control and setting from Windows 7 were here.
