Team Vulcan 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model TLYD38G2133HC10QDC01
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Well made. Cheaper than 1866 memory. Is registered in bios at 1600 (so you have to increase the speed manually).

Will boot at 2133 BUT... see cons.

Cons: Fails stress test at 2133. Bought 4 of these packs (2 comp builds) . Maybe less than 1/2 of these operated at 2133 (3 chips/8). And those 3 did not complete an exhaustive test (I kind of only let it do a couple passes). The full tests came back good at 1866 for all chips.

Other Thoughts: Well, this memory WAS cheaper than 1866 of the same type. No point in returning it. If you OC, this memory should be able to achieve speeds between 1866 and 2133.

I guess I could have done some adjustments to the xmp, but it SHOULD be able to handle stock rated speeds at whatever the default timing is.

Vulcan was a great name for this product, because I had to test one chip at a time and all I can say is "PAIN!!!!!"

AMD A8-5600K Trinity Quad-Core 3.6GHz (3.9GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7560D AD560KWOHJBOX
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: With after-market cooling. OCs easily at 3.9ghz w/ 4.2 on turbo. I hear other OC w/o stock cooler but I don't recommend it.

Jeleous cus it has a better wei score than my monster PC and it costed $300 more. I guess it is time to get a better vid card (Since that is what is holding my scaore back).

The on board video for this Proc.... surprisingly good. Got a 6.8 on WEI vid scores w/o OC'ing.

Cheap/Cost Effective.

Fits most AM3/AM3+ heat sinks. For the most part from what I read, AM2/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2 use the heat sink mounting hardware.

Cons: Makes my monster machine look like a kids toy.

OOOOKKKK ... I have none.

Other Thoughts: I hate loud fans, I always tend to upgrade heat sinks. The bonus is that I can do OC'ing.

ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Cost effective (AKA cheap).
- Cools well enough to do mild and mid level OC.
- Drops Non-OC's temps by 7-10 degrees
- Quiet
- Did I mention cheap?

Cons: - Can cover the memory slot closest to CPU. If you don't plan to use it, ok, if you do.... you need to "mod" it. See below.

Fitting it on is ok, just need 2 people.

Other Thoughts: I do minor overclocking without messing with the voltages. (although I do know how to do it) on air cooling only. I have had 3 of these so far. All 3 of my motherboards, 2 of which were MSI (ATX) and the most recent one this week - ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M FM2 - mATX - blocked the dimm slot closest to the CPU. Want it back? You can mod it with pliers, wire cutters (for the plastic fan trim), and a sander. I have done this 3 times now, so I can say I am ok at it. Use the sander to file down the lower section that blocks memory slot. Use pliers and wire cutter CAFEFULLY - take a small bit off at a time - to take out fan frame that is blocking slot. Then use the sander on the freshly cut out fan frame to smooth it down.

Take a note that doing the operation above WILL void your warranty. Yes, it is a pain, but this thing cools well and is "cost effective" so a little sweat equity is not a problem.

As for the reviews that say that this cooler base does not cover the whole AMD CPU - IT IS TRUE - BUT.... please take a look at the ORIGINAL OEM cooler. It's base covers exact the same area, but it so happens the wings go over the area to the permiter of the CPU. So yes, this will work for AMD as well. No worries man.
