Overall Review: Very solid card.

Most Critical Review

Junk

Siyang KN95 Protective Face Mask, 25 pcs per Box
Siyang KN95 Protective Face Mask, 25 pcs per Box

Pros: It's a mask

Cons: The metal band that goes over the nose will fall off quickly. This is what sort of makes it snug to your nose so this is bad. Do not buy this product.

Overall Review: Everything is listed in the cons section of this review. DO NOT buy this product.

NICE!!!

XFX P1-850B-BEFX 850 W ATX12V 2.2 & ESP12V 2.91 SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Full Modular Active PFC Power Supply

Pros: Full modular design that has plenty of options. Easy to add and subtract cables as needed. The fan option on this unit is very nice. Any reduction is overall decibel noise is welcome.

Cons: Did not plug itself in and make me coffee.

Overall Review: Rock solid design and ease of use.

My first bad G.Skill Purchase

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM

Pros: Price otherwise none.

Cons: Would not run at rated speed no matter what I did. Customer support was quick to respond but generic in nature. I am sure for 75% of buyers their help would be good enough. I have overclocked for years so I know what I am doing. RAM tested okay but sometimes components do not like to pay together.

Overall Review: I ordered a different model so we shall see. I have used G.Skill for years and this experience will not impact that fact. Note: G.Skill you do not need to post a reply, all is good and I will not read it because I am a one and done when it comes to posting.

Not good

Pros: 3D Mark scores were high but...

Cons: 3D Mark tests were high but when playing either Crysis 2 or Eve Online I would ge BSOD. Treid everything to get it to work, and no luck.

Overall Review: Out of two dozen video cards I have ever owned this was the first to not work.
