Pros: I bought this ram for my amd apu. It works at stable speed of 1600 mhz. Good design and the heat sinks are very attractive.
Cons: It can't support 1866 or 2133 mhz. I have tried to enabled xmp with the right timing but my board beeps 3 times and it says failed to reached frequency. It automatically reverts back to 1600mhz.
Other Thoughts: Chatted the newegg representative to rma this product. Bought a ram that has been 100% hand tested and it works with their xmp timing. So I guess just to make sure when you are going to buy a ram, read on the product description on the label that it says 100% hand tested.READ FULL REVIEW

This review is from: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - CPU Cooler with 120 mm PWM Fan
Pros: Installed on my MSI A88XM-45 with amd A10-7850k processor. Nothing to complain. easy to install. The fan noise is pretty quiet. Most of the user reviews says the fan is loud but for me is cool and quiet. Better than the expensive noctua nh-u12s. This cooler cools my overclocked a10-7850k without fail.
Cons: none so far. By the way you can install 4 tall rams without touching the fan. Maybe 3mm gap between the intake fan to the first ram slot.READ FULL REVIEW
