mid-high level memory

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Intel XMP 2.0 Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBXL

Pros: working really well with my A85 chipsets. Accouding to the memory benchmarks, this is a mid-high level memory which means can perform better than most of the DDR3 memories.

Cons: not found

Overall Review: You might want to look at the testing when you hesitate to select 1600/1866/2133 MHz. Like for my A10-5800K, the testing score increases very little from 1866 to 2133.

only a basic case w/ power. front panel sucks

Rosewill R519-BK - Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 500W Power Supply
Rosewill R519-BK - Black ATX Mid Tower Computer Case with 500W Power Supply

Pros: This is a basic case w/ power. 1. The 500w power works well with my Biostar A85w motherboard. 2. Fan is good. all the mechanial parts are attached.

Cons: 1. the front panel sucks. (1)Static noises comes out of front audio jack all the time; (2)front USB panel dislike my Logitech M310 mouse. Connection stops every minute. 2. The case does not leave enough space for the DVI socket on A85w. I have to cut a part of the case to plug-in the DVI-D cable

Overall Review: If you want to use the front USB and audio jacks, than choose another case

Really fast disk, still working

Seagate Desktop HDD ST1000DM003 1TB 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive

Pros: 1. This ST1000DM003 is 1TB-per-disk (single platter drive) that has really high storage density, which may provide a fantastic reading/writing speed (Mine is over 160MB/s on average tested by the HD.Tunes). 2. Besides, it is really quiet while running at high load. 3. The firmware version of this HDD I bought is CC46, and the model number is 1CH162, you don't have to worry about the firmware problem.

Cons: This HDD shakes more than the one I had before, but the shaking is not terrible.

Overall Review: The price is still higher than the average of 1TB disks, but it worth the price.
