Samsung 840 EVO MZ-7TE1T0BW 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Large storage size, very fast

Cons: The physical size of this drive is not standard.

Other Thoughts: I had my OS installed on an OCZ 512Gig SSD. I upgraded to this to increase storage. I was very surprised at how fast this drive is, particularly after you run the magician software on it. Everything now seems much snappier. On the OCZ drive, if I had my documents folder open and saved a new file to it, that new file would show at the bottom of the list. Now, with this drive, it shows up right where it should be in alphabetical order instantly.

The downside of this device is the physical size of the drive. It is slightly larger then the standard SSD. So any mounting kit you buy, the mounting holes will not match up correctly. I was able to force in two screws on the bracket, but couldn't get the other 2 in. No worries though, it's still secure.

So far, I'm very happy with this upgrade. I bought it to increase my SSD storage and ended up with that an a performance boost!

Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 140mm and 120mm SSO CPU Cooler

5 out of 5 eggs Eggcellent heat sink! 01/21/2014

This review is from: Noctua NH-D14 SE2011 140mm and 120mm SSO CPU Cooler

Pros: Rocking 4.5 on my 3930K at 39C, excellent fit on the EVGA X79 Dark. Noctua actually certifies this cooler for both the Dark and G.Skill memory.

Cons: Could have used a third hand to install

Other Thoughts: I first tried a Zalman, and it did not fit on the X79 Dark. So, back to the drawing board, and did my research the next time around. This one fits like a glove. Noctua provided measurements that it would fit the board and memory. Installation was probably the easiest I have ever experienced. Even so, a third hand would come in handy when you are trying to screw in the spring loaded screws. With that said, it's hardly worth knocking an egg off for it.

G.SKILL Ripjaws Z Series 64GB (8 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-19200CL10Q2-64GBZHD
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: 64 Gig, G.Skill

Cons: Unable to use the fan kits, Price

Other Thoughts: I love this memory set. It works great on the EVGA x79 dark. With the X79 Dark, you will not be ale to use the supplied fans if you have a large heat sink installed. I'm not too worried about heat from the memory, since my Noctura heat sink has multiple fans that move air over the memory. I can't fault Newegg or G.Skill for that though, so I didn't knock an egg off. This kit is expensive. Do your research first and save yourself a few bucks by going with the fanless kit.
