Solid Memroy

HyperX 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX

Pros: Stable Worked out of the box JEDEC Compliant Lifetime warranty.

Cons: None so far

Overall Review: I bought this memory for my i7 system w/ a P6TD Deluxe motherboard. The memory installed and worked out of the box with no problems - which is more than I can say about alot of the so-call high-end memory that you read about 1001 problems with. This memory may not have the lowest latency timings but it runs @ 1600 with JEDEC compliant voltages as recommended by Intel for processor longevity. It has worked great for me so far and the memory benchmarks are higher than 98% of comparable systems. If your looking for solid performance and stability I would recommend this without a doubt.

All Good...

Pros: Quick Setup Stable Great integrated chipset cooling Lots of overclocking options Great board layout, even with the notcua cooler I can still access all of the RAM slots and board connectors.

Cons: -No floppy connector. (I knew this going into it) -Two of the SATA ports may be hard to access if you have a very thick GPU cooler. I have a 4870X2 w/ Arctic cooling cooler and I can barely get the card in with a SATA device attached to those ports. Might be better with a right-angle SATA cable, but I'm waiting for one to come in and find out.

Overall Review: I bought this board to build an i7 system: i7-930, 6gb of Kingston HyperX DDR3-1600, ATI 4870x2 GPU, Noctua NH-U12P SE2 cooler, 2 x Seagate 7200.12 750GB drives. So far the board has been great, the board looks and feels well built. Assembled with no issues and booted up on the first shot with problems. Even under extreme load the board/chipset run very cool with the integrated solution. I have only done a little overclocking so far but it was easy as could be. I would definitely recommend this board over the P6T Deluxe V2 if you can do without the floppy connector.
