Pros: The Original kit I bought has been wonderful so when when I wanted to double I saw it was available here. I had issues with it reaching 3000 with the listed timings.
Cons: The original kit used Samsung the one purchased in 2020 used Hynix and was not compatible with the old kit.
Pros: * Beautiful screen: Although not specified mine came with a 120Hz screen with Gsync enabled.
* Excellent gaming performance: BF4 ultra settings pegged at 120fps: TW3 ultra settings 70 fps. It's a pleasure to game on.
* Great cooling: With a custom fan profile temps for GPU and CPU hover around 70 Deg. C without too much fan noise.
Not really a con but if you are looking for a small laptop with good battery life then this isn't it. With the embedded GPUI was able to watch about 2 hours of movies before I had tom shut down, the battery was at 34%.
Overall Review: I did a complete install of windows to get rid of the bloatware but ended up installing much of the software. If I were to start over I would just remove Norton and the True color app.
Overall Review: I put this in and older rig with an I7 920, I'm able to run the Witcher 3 @ at 2048 x 1152 with most setting on Ultra at 60 FPS. I also like how the temps are managed so that when the card isn't being used the fans are off which makes for a quiet PC.
Pros: This was my first build. This case is machined perfectly everything fits just right. The tool less design and removable MB tray made assembling my first rig an easy task.
Cons: Minor con. I had to reverse both the 80 mm fans to get effective cooling. The top blows in the rear blows out.
Overall Review: My Zalman 9500 fit perfectly in this case. This case rocks. Newegg also rocks.
