Works great

G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-2GBPK
G.SKILL 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model F2-8500CL5D-2GBPK

Pros: Easy to install, ran 1066 at 2.1V without a problem, passed tests.

Cons: None

Overall Review: Don't care for having to send in rebates, takes so long to get them back.

Most Critical Review

Bad support

ASRock Z77 Extreme3 LGA 1155 Intel Z77 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Don't know, didn't work.

Cons: Didn't work out of the box. Had bent pins like several other posts say here. Not a big deal normally, you can expect some percentage of parts won't work out of the box. But normally, the company will replace it when that happens. ASRock support said they don't replace boards with bent pins, but they would do it for a $50 fee. When you add shipping to that, it comes out to about the value of the board. So no, I won't be buying a new board for $50 -- if I'm going to buy another board, I'll use another company that I trust.

Pros: This is my second pair. First pair worked perfectly, no problems.

Cons: Second pair not so good. I can run either stick at 1066 alone with no problems, but put them both in and memtest fails all over the place. Tried different slots, relaxing the timings, mixing them with the good sticks I have, but these two just won't run 1066 dual channel. I can run all 4 sticks at 800 MHz dual channel, but that's not why I bought them.

Overall Review: I'm sure I could get the second pair I bought swapped out, but it isn't worth the time or shipping cost to do that.

Eh

AMD Gift - 2GB USB Memory Wristband

Pros: Decent size storage.

Cons: Somewhat slow. Wristband is a little big, and I have trouble getting it on, it also falls off occasionally which I don't usually notice right away -- I'm surprised I haven't lost it yet.
