XFX Core Edition FX-785A-ZNFC Radeon HD 7850 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Performs as it should low power consumption

Cons: No Sound over DVI. I have been using my Asus TOP 4850 for awhile and it passed sound like it should. I have a 15' DVI to DMI cable that passes sound to my TV w/o adapter.

I just upgraded to z77 Asroxk Extreme 4 MOBO and swapped the TV to the onboard video and bam sound works.

From looking around it seems only some cards pass sound, but on this one you would think having 2 DVI and only 1 HDMI it would pass sound through DVI but does not

Good luck finding reviews of which cards actually do pass sound through DVI, I found 1 mention of an Asus 7850 that was supposed to pass sound

Other Thoughts: Overall works great taking 1 star away due to not passing sound over DVI. Actually if I did not upgrade and have onboard video I would be more upset and remove 2 stars since I would have to buy a 15' HDMI cable to get sound to my TV

SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3D/US

5 out of 5 eggs Look no further best bang for buck period!! 11/01/2012

This review is from: SAMSUNG 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MV-3V4G3D/US

Pros: Got 16GB when it was onsale for a sick deal, this stuff is tiny. Can swap sticks into diff slots easy without cursing and banging against my HSF

Found the sweet spot 1866Mhz @9-9-9-24 1T@1.335v, yes undervolted from the measly 1.35v. Again running 16GB

This is my daily settings havent messed with much higher other than I tried 10-10-10-28 @ 1.5v and only worked at 2000Mhz not 2133Mhz, may be able to tweak some sub timings to get that to work

Very happy with my purchase as the 1866 ram is more expensive and is all 1.5 v which cannot touch 1.335v or 1.35v

Cons: Doesnt make me dinner

and

No HDMI

No but seriously only thig would be no xmp in my bios for this ram,

Other Thoughts: best ram I have ever owned and I plan on keeping it 4yrs with my new 3570K, 7850 and a pair of Samsung 830 128GB SSD's in raid 0.. Just dumped my Q9650, 4850 and Gigabyte UD3P. The new rig is faster and more powerful but drains less power from the wall.

Duh Winning!!

CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-16GB
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

3 out of 5 eggs The old ones are good, the new batch is not 03/01/2011

This review is from: CORSAIR Flash Voyager 16GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive Model CMFUSB2.0-16GB

Pros: I have 2 of these, the 1st was purchased ~2yrs ago and is fantastic. Its fast and has even been through the washing machine w/o issues.

The newest one i got around Christmas. It is waaay slower than the 1st one.

Pros:
The rubber case is nice

Cons: The new ones I dont care for they are slow and I'm worried about reliability

Although I listed the rubber case as a pro its also a con in that its big so you cannot plug 2 things in next to each other

Other Thoughts: I paid pretty much the same price for these 2yrs ago as now (both after rebate).

I would stay away from these newer ones.

I bought a Patriot 16gb the same time as this new one and its waaay faster and I like it better.
