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 TVREAD FULL REVIEW
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
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.
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.
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.
