Most Favorable Review

Great RAM, Great for overclocking

OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK
OCZ Gold 6GB (3 x 2GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Low Voltage Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G1600LV6GK

Pros: I used this for an i7 build overclocked to 3.6 ghz and the ram running extremely stable at 1700 mhz. I have the timings at 7-7-7-22 CR1. Its fast

Cons: price?

Overall Review: Looks great in my case. Intel Core i7 920 OC'd to 3.6ghz OCZ Gold PC3-12800 OC'd to 1700 mhz 2 WD Caviar Black in raid 0 Sapphire Radeon 4870 1 gb Kingwin Mach 1 1000 watt PSU Enermax Uber Chakra case

Transfers Heat Great

Pros: Used on my i7 with a Zalman CNPS9900LED Cooler. Transfers the heat to the cpu cooler. I have my i7 920 OC to 3.4 ghz w/1.3v and runs much cooler than the 920 with the stock heatsink and stock speed and vcore.

Cons: none

Look really cool, Keeps my Overclocked i7 cold

ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler
ZALMAN CNPS9900ALED 120mm 2 Ball Low-noise Blue LED CPU Cooler

Pros: Keeps everything cool with my i7 920. Idle is around 35 deg C and 60 deg C under load with Prime 95 and Folding at home all running at the same time. I have my i7 920 overclocked to 3.6ghz with stock voltage and I used artic silver 5 thermal compound. The cooler is really cool looking too.

Cons: The fan gets noisy after it passes 75% (1800 rpms) but I dont need it over 1200 rpms to keep my i7 as cool as it would get. Its quiet under 1800 rpms. My sapphire radeon 4870 is noisier than this at idle.

Overall Review: I rather have some noise than sacrifice cooling. Its a great cooler for the i7 and you can go wrong with it and it will make your case look good.

Pros: They work perfect for what there made for. They arent loud like some people say. they make noise but i have never heard a perfectly silent cd/dvd burner in my whole life.

Cons: none

Pros: I have 2 of these running in raid 0 on my i7 build and they are very fast. They are just as fast if not faster than a $300 Velociraptor or SSD drive and you get 5 times the storage space. Vista Ultimate loads in about 3-4 sec.

Overclocks Easy, Cant slow it down

Intel Core i7-920 - Core i7 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1366 130W Processor - BX80601920
Intel Core i7-920 - Core i7 Bloomfield Quad-Core 2.66 GHz LGA 1366 130W Processor - BX80601920

Pros: Overclocks very easy I have it running stable a 3.6 ghz at stock voltage. I can't seem to slow it down. I can run Prime 95, Folding @ Home, and watch a blu-ray movie and it still wont even push it. It's crazy.

Cons: Stock cooler sucks so I got a Zalman CNPS9900 Led to keep it cool. It idles at 34 deg C and 60 deg C under load and used artic silver 5 thermal compound.

Overall Review: Buy it, you can't go wrong. Theres nothing that can get in its way. I overclocks very well. Intel Core i7 920 OC'd to 3.6ghz OCZ Gold PC3-12800 OC'd to 1700 mhz 2 WD Caviar Black in raid 0 Sapphire Radeon 4870 1 gb Kingwin Mach 1 1000 watt PSU Enermax Uber Chakra case
