5 out of 5 eggs This is a great memory kit that runs at stock voltage and excellent timings (CAS 15) 09/04/2016

This review is from: HyperX Savage 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2666 (PC4 21300) Desktop Memory Model HX426C15SBK2/32

Pros: I really like this memory kit, as it runs at 1.2 volts with CAS 15 and DDR4-2666 speed. If you want to go faster, you have to up the voltage! I just purchased the second kit for the same PC.

Cons: Not really a con, but I was not able to run this above DDR4-2133 on an H170 motherboard. No surprise :)

Other Thoughts: The heat sinks are just for show, as this memory does not use much power and runs at the stock DDR4 voltage. An IR monitor never showed them as more than 12 degrees F above ambient in my case (about 7 C).

4 out of 5 eggs Good cooler, bad clip design 10/18/2012

This review is from: ARCTIC Alpine 64 Plus CPU Cooler - AMD, Supports Multiple Sockets, 92mm PWM Fan at 23dBA

Pros: Cools much better than the stock AMD heatsink/fan for my A6 CPU.

Cons: The clip that attaches the heatsink to the CPU bracket is attached to the single piece fan molding, so that fan cannot be replaced unless you fabricate your own replacement bracket (most people can't).

Other Thoughts: The fan is very quiet and does push a lot of air, but it looks like you'll have to throw away the entire heatsink when the fan goes bad.

Hitachi GST Deskstar 0S03230 3TB 5400 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Excellent read speed, good write speed for a 5400 rpm drive. All four drives that I purchased are running fine with no problems.

Cons: Formatting the drives (use GPT to get more than 2TB).

Other Thoughts: I'm running my four 0S03230 drives in a NORCO 4 bay hot swap module through an LSI controller as a RAID 5 data array for my WHS 2011 and all is well. Remember to format GPT :)
