Pros: Yeah, it's kinda rice like an aluminum wing on a Civic, but I like it anyways. With this ram installed, my PC reminds me of WOPR which makes me all warm and fuzzy inside because I feel like Matthew Broderick!
Working perfectly using XMP in ASUS Z97 Pro w/ a i5 4690k and 2 970s in sli, MOD software runs well, also. (Windows 8.1)
Cons: One LED on each stick was bad on first boot. $#!T!!! In the center on one and out towards the edge on the other. The defective LEDs were extremely dim on both colors and it didn't matter if the MOD software was installed or not. After running some stress tests on the CPU that involved a lot of ram testing, all lights are now working perfectly and have been for a couple weeks now.
Overall Review: If you get one with a wonky LED, try running prime95 or something to heat up and break in the ram. Worked for me!
Pros: I have been running this cooler 24/7 on a Q6600 since 2008!!!
Recently I replaced the old crusty thermal compound and it regained it's original cooling ability.
Cons: Not a thing!
I will warn people to make sure they have room for it, though.
Overall Review: I'm about to retire this old PC and thought I would leave a review since it has served me so well. I would buy a new one, but I'm moving to water cooling.
Pros: It mounts a 2.5 drive in a 3.5 bay, it came with screws, what else can one say?
Cons: It didn't come with a free SSD.
Overall Review: Never argue with an idiot. They will just bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.
Pros: Super fast, silent, small, low temps
Cons: Not a con for the card, but my mobo is severely limiting the drive's speed and has spurred me to build a new PC, $$$$$$$$$.
Even so, it's still ten times faster than the 7 year old raptors it replaced. (obviously)
Overall Review: Once I finish my Z97 build, this drive should scream!
Pros: Great ram from a great company for a great price.
Cons: Had to RMA! I always use Corsair in my builds and this is the first time I have had trouble.
I had problems with random crashing after installing this ram. After a month, one of the sticks failed all together. Corsair sent 2 new sticks and all is well.
Overall Review: Removed one star for the RMA delay. For using the words "frag" and "pwn" in the description, Newegg gets negative eleventeen stars.
Pros: not purchased yet, on sale, great reviews
Cons: not purchased yet
Overall Review: Don't blame the manufacturer if you cannot find/install drivers. The link they have provided in the reviews is right, however it is not linking correctly for some reason. Cut and paste the link instead of clicking on it and it works fine. Or you could spend a whole 10 seconds on their site and find it.
I am buying these because of the reviews posted here and the fact that the manufacturer actually took the time to come here and try to help these poor fools stabbing away at their machines with sharp sticks. Kudos to ABS for even trying to help them. I will post a real review after I try them for a couple weeks.
