G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) X299 Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR
G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (4 x 8GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 3600 (PC4 28800) Desktop Memory Model F4-3600C16Q-32GTZR

Pros: G.Skill modules are the best!

Cons: In my first review, written earlier today, I told of the very conflicting situation between Trident Z RGB Control, Trident Z Royal Lighting Control, and other RGB lighting programs i.e., ASUS's Aura, Corsair's iCue, and MSI's MysticLight3. So why am I back here re-reviewing? Because I mistakenly fed you bad information. Newegg don't let you edit reviews and I want to correct my error. I said you could run your G.Skill Trident Z RGB modules in Corsair's iCue but that is not correct. I meant you can run your G.Skill modules with ASUS Aura. NOT iCUE! If you follow my lead and use the three lighting programs that actually play well together: 1. ASUS's Aura ver. 1.05.22 (newer versions say "Aura has stopped working" when I try to open them.) Fix it ASUS 2. Corsair's iCUE ver. 3.16.56 3. If you have an MSI graphics card, Mystic Light 3 ver. 3.0.0.50 Why only 4 eggs this time? Dock one egg G.Skill for a lousy job in producing a software that knocks out the RGB lighting on our modules and conflicts with every other lighting control program out there.

Overall Review: Just came in here to edit my earlier first review

Most Critical Review

Bad for UEFI

Microsoft Wireless Media Desktop 1000
Microsoft Wireless Media Desktop 1000

Pros: Nice keyboard and mouse if your not using the new UEFI BIOS.

Cons: This Keyboard and mouse are on a program that doesn't start until your in the OS. Therefore, if you go into a mouse applicable BIOS such as UEFI, on all the better boards, the mouse doesn't work.

Overall Review: What good is a mouse that won't function in all aspects of programming?

G.Skill Equals Dependability

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 32GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model F4-3200C22S-32GRS
G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 32GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 3200 (PC4 25600) Laptop Memory Model F4-3200C22S-32GRS

Pros: 32Gb SO-Dimm Module: It just sits there. No flashing lights. No big time setup. It just sits there in its SO-DIMM slot and works its tail off, along with the 8Gb of DDR4 3200Mhz memory soldered to the ROG Zephyrus M16 board, for a total of 40Gb of RAM memory.

Cons: None here.

Overall Review: I'm a hardware tech. I've been using G.Skill RAM products in each and every build and upgrade I've completed in the last 18 years. I have never received a client complaint, nor have I ever known of G.Skill RAM products to fail. As long as G.Skill makes the quality controlled memory modules that they have seemingly perfected I will continue to utilize their products.

SanDisk 128GB High Endurance microSDXC C10, U3, V30, 4k UHD Memory Card with Adapter (SDSQQNR-128G-GN6IA)

Pros: More mobile storage space for transferring files. It's from SanDisk, an outstanding industry leader. 128Gb - 256Gb Moreover, it works!

Cons: None so far about the product. I DO HAVE A CON HOWEVER! My con is about people reviewing products that give zero indication of what they put it in! Part of reviewing, and reading reviews, is discovering if a certain part is compatible with your intended project. Let others know what you used it for, and on.

Overall Review: If your laptop has a Micro SDXC slot and you need more room than the standard USB flash drive, this Micro SDXC is available in both 128Gb and 256Gb versions.

MSI MAG Series CORELIQUID 280R, ARGB CPU Liquid Cooler (AIO): Rotatable Blockhead Design, 280mm Radiator, Dual 140mm ARGB PWM Fans LGA 1700 / AM5 Compatible

Pros: Keeps my temps at mid 30's C, Using IC Diamond 30mm patch. 280mm. Pump is inside radiator. aRGB lighting.

Cons: aRGB lighting (The Dragon) at heat spreader is washed out. Of all things! One of the visual focal points inside the case and it's washed out among the RAM, GPU, PSU, and the aRGB case fans. I will NOT be buying this again until MSI enriches the coloration at what would be, on a traditional setup, the pump head.

G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) 288-Pin PC RAM DDR4 4600 (PC4 36800) Desktop Memory Model F4-4600C20D-32GTZR

Pros: Bought 32Gb of the 64 I'll have later. Nice rich colored RGB's. Passed Memtest86 with flying colors, the second time around. (I'll explain). G.Skill memory just works! Period. Motherboard is running these @4601Mhz.

Cons: No cons. Except maybe that most of the time things don't work out, it's operator/motherboard error, NOT the modules.

Who Knows!

This seller can't get off of their duff and send the product I paid for? I ordered this on 5/28. Here we are at 6/10 and the seller STILL has NOT shipped the item yet. It's not like there's bulky package. It'll fly in just an envelope. Get off your lazy tail and send my product!
