XFX Double D FX797GTDFC Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: See previous review.

Cons: This is my second time having to RMA my purchase. The first time was for the entire model series specific to XFX having to be replaced, this time it's for a dead fan...Oddly, I received this message from XFX Customer Support:

You've noticed that the front fan (the fan farthest from the bracket) is spinning very slowly and emitting a buzzing noise, based on that the fan is faulty. try to use other DVI and HDMI cables.

Uh yea...Right now I'm just hoping XFX doesn't deny my RMA because this card is an RMA replacement from the previous RMA...

Other Thoughts: With this RMA I'll be out a total of about $30 in shipping costs...Do yourself a favor, don't buy XFX...

CyberPower CP350SLG 350 VA 255 w 6 Outlets UPS

4 out of 5 eggs Perfect for small applications 06/30/2014

This review is from: CyberPower CP350SLG 350 VA 255 w 6 Outlets UPS

Pros: I recently bought a Brother MFC here at Newegg, and needed a power protection for it. After debating between brands and capacities, as well as looking over some regular surge protectors, I decided on this unit. It's TINY. Literally it's not much larger than a house brick. It is also very light.

Cons: Not Line Interactive, no digital readout, high cost per watt rating, not sine wave.

Other Thoughts: For lower power applications, such as an inkjet printer, network switch, even a router this is a good product. But remember it is very basic, and is not sine wave, so it should never be used with computers and other very expensive electronics.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-17000CL9D-8GBXM
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I'm not a huge fan of G.SKILL, but when I needed to upgrade my system last year these were the best modules on the market in terms of price and speed. I've been using them in my ASUS Sabertooth 990FX Gen3/R2 at the rated speed and timings without issues. Remember that home applications are not RAM bound, and that you will not notice much, if any, real world difference between DDR2 1600 and DDR3 2400, especially if you have an Intel processor with a triple channel controller.

Cons: I have noticed that, at least in the case of my modules, that they don't take kindly to having their timings fiddled with. Trying to tighten any value and it will result in either instability or a non booting situation.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad RAM choice. Not the best, but far from the worst.
