Pros: Works and formats properly. Holds data and this technology is getting more affordable. Boot times are noticeably faster.

Cons: Not the speed upgrade you would expect. Coupled with the chance of losing data over time, this might be a good drive for someone that wants a fast boot, but doesn't need the storage space.

Overall Review: I have waited to get into the SDD market for awhile to see if the deterioration issues would get dealt with and let the bugs work themselves out of this technology.I think we still have a ways to go.

Sound pretty good in a small venue10/12/2014 8:30:02 AM

Pros: This fills the space in my home theater area 20'x45; pretty well and even the bass pretty good when it is up against something. I use the side of the couch. This would work very well in an apartment setting. Sound is good, and relatively clean.

Cons: This is not an audiophile unit. I use this with an AppleTV and use the optical connector. It cleans up the signal pretty well, but it is not as tight as I would have hoped.

Overall Review: Not disappointed at all for what I bought it for. The surround speakers are good enough and clear enough to add to a small area nicely. It is a bit better than HDMI sound using the optical.

Works fine10/12/2014 8:19:29 AM

Pros: Works as intended. I use this as a drive recovery tool for older IDE drives before they get recycled.

Cons: It could be a little longer cable to facilitate usefulness.

Big MOJO on ya MOBO5/2/2012 3:45:14 PM

Pros: Perfect for the discriminating, over compensating geek in all of us. Extremely quiet. RPM maxes out at about 1700 and it idles at 780 on my board with cool and quiet turned off. Heat sink is huge. I actually installed my mobo on the cooler instead of the other way around. Did drop the temps from 58C to 35 C idle from the stock cooler. Stock = teh LULz anywayz. so /shrug. Red LED is not too bright and has a cool glow to it really. Very simple install method, and the instructions are clear as to how to do it. PWM! Baby.. Comes with nut wrench to install and a hex wrench you don't need to install it, but you might need to uninstall your stock retension mechanism on your mobo. (very thoughtful). Comes with a descent amount of coolermaster Thermal compound in case you screw up. Like me. ;)

Cons: No flames or exhaust stacks on this baby, Maybe that's a good thing... Has a goofy little fan controller that includes a PCI bracket so you can hide it in the back so your friends don't laugh at it. A small rheostat really, but the connections are slip on and off and not soldered so they slip off more than on. You have to turn the controller all the way up if you are using PWM in the BIOS, or it will set the alarms off. Not a Con, just a warning.

Overall Review: I am quite pleased so far with my unit. Looks cool, but really stands off the mobo. Like 7" off of the CPU! Not for the feint of heart nor shallow of case. I am using an Antec skeleton case, (Basically a test board with a 250mm fan on top.) and my system board sits horizontal so no big deal for me, but if you are going vertical, I suggest that you make sure all the mobo screws are in and tight so as to not overstress it and possibly crack it. Check your clearances before you install this bad boy.

Descently quiet5/2/2012 3:05:26 PM

Pros: Relatively quiet. Easy to install. Took longer to plug it into the mobo then it did to install. Dropped mem temps by 7C in idle. 6C full load. (not bad). Worth the money it costs.

Cons: Will not fit next to large CPU heatsink fan. I had to install this at an angle to get it next to my V8, and zip tied to the heat pipes. It looks sort cool really, but I imagine the cooling would be better if it was shorter and directed straight down. No LED fans. Doesn't glow in the dark or eat the liver off my plate. :/

Overall Review: This ain't no rocket engine cooler. It does what it is supposed to do. My system: Asus Sabertooth 990FX AMD 6100 Cooler Master V8 CPU cooler 16 GBs Patriot Viper Extreme 4x4 2 PNY 460ti dual SLI + 1 9800GTX Physics card

Not just for X79 chipsets ver2.05/2/2012 2:50:58 PM

Pros: Like the other 2 peeps, I did not read the whole detail page for this mem. I also popped it into a ASUS Sabertooth 990FX mobo. Bios ver. 1102 recognized it correctly but, as 1333 mem (not 1866) and booted just fine. Have to use DOCP and choose the timimg profile to set it up, or go manual. Either way it was fine. AMD overdrive still shows it as 1333 as well even though AiSuite II shows it running at 1866.

Cons: none so far. Burning system in ATM.

Overall Review: Added a V8 Coolermaster to this at the same time. No clearance issues with this mem. My system: Asus Sabertooth 990FX AMD 6100 16 GBs Patriot Viper Extreme 4x4 PNY 460ti dual SLI + 9800GTX Physics card
