Pros: Super fast Looks neat well built

Cons: My Maximus VIII Extreme absolutely hates this kit and will not run nearly the speeds advertised Only a single xmp profile - no options between ddr4-2133 and ddr4-4000

Overall Review: My fault for not verifying with the QVL before purchasing.

Manufacturer Response:
. Hi Daniel Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you like the unique appearance and ultra high frequency capability of this memory kit. With the latest BIOS/EFI, this memory kit is surely compatible with your motherboard. Though keep in mind not any CPU can achieve this frequency. An Intel K series is required and even then not all are guaranteed capable of DDR4-4000. To determine what it is capable of, enabled XMP, then lower DRAM Frequency until the system can boot and work properly. In any case, we are certain that hardware combination can produce the best results as it is commonly used for breaking world records. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly. We will see through your computer is operating at maximum performance. Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT Quality and customer service are our top priorities. Tech Support Email: RMA Dept Email: G.Skill Forum:

Great Card2/7/2010 9:30:10 PM

Pros: Fantastically built card perfect for those using headphone or analog multichannel audio.

Cons: Uses the Creative CA0110 audio chip and not the more powerful EMU20K2. As such this card does software emulation of many abilities and only supports EAX4.0 specs. Docking a start because of this, the card would be a monster with the proper audio chip driving it.

Overall Review: I bought this by mistake instead of the Auzen Forte which is geared more towards gaming. If you use quality headphones for audio or movie playback its hard to beat the bravura. Just be careful to get the right card for your needs.

Pros: These drives are great, and work wonders in a raid after some tweaking.

Cons: Noisy, not exactly a quiet drive.

Overall Review: Be sure to use wdtler program to set the tler time to 3 or 5 so they don't randomly drop out of the raid. After that is done they work just like an RE drive

Very Durable12/6/2006 5:15:26 AM

Pros: Recently ran this thing over with a vehicle on accident. And it sat out in the cold for 24 hours before being found. Straightened out the USB connecter and plugged it in, still works perfectly. As durable as they come.

Cons: Cap is easily misplaced.

Overall Review: Corsair makes a great product, and Newegg got it here super fast.
