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).READ FULL REVIEW
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.READ FULL REVIEW
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 :)READ FULL REVIEW
