G.SKILL TridentX Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2666 (PC3 21300) Desktop Memory Model F3-2666C11Q-16GTXD

Pros: Fast! My setup is an ASUS P8Z77-V-Deuxe MB, i7-3770K @ 4.6GHz(P95 stable), Corsair H100 cooler, a CoolerMaster 1200W PS and two GTX 680's in SLI. Except for one experience(see below), G.Skill memory has always worked per spec the first time!

Cons: Cost, No stable OC @ 2800 and above yet

Other Thoughts: I had originally bought the 2600 version of this memory and could not get a stable XMP OC above 1921 MHz. I talked to Tim(very helpful) at G.SKill and tried everything he suggested(i.e. Vccsa should be @ 1.25v), but still no luck. RMA'd the part back to NewEgg for a refund and decided to buy the 2666MHz set. 2nd time was a charm, and NewEgg really treated me very well during the whole process!!


Pros: None

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This build was my first build in almost four years when I built two machines with QX9650 Extreme CPU's. This build was much easier and faster. I spent a lot of time four years ago getting 2 GB Corsair DDR3 1800MHz (XMP) memory to work (stable). The G.SKILL 1866MHz (XMP) worked right out of the box with zero problems!!

Corsair P256 2.5

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: I own three of these P256's. I have two in a RAID 0 cofiguration in my ASUS P5E3 Desktop(Win7 64 bit WEI score=7.9). I have another one in my new ASUS G73JH-A1 Laptop(Win7 64 bit WEI score=7.4).

Cons: Price and Babysitting -- you have to ocasionally do a secure erase with G-Parted to get them back to top notch performance. Trim commands work with single drives and Win7, but don't work yet in RAID(multiple drives) cofigurations. I will be very happy when the RAID controllers allow the Trim command to be passed through to the SSD Drives.

Other Thoughts: They really shine in my ASUS G73JH Laptop!!!
