Pros: Blazing fast in all the areas it needs to be.
Cons: BSOD after 5200 hours powered on. A Know issue.
Overall Review: The new firmware to fix the BSOD poster below commented on is out and it is a 2 minite fix. http://www.crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx?AID=10273954&PID=4003003&SID=11h8yj9kv3mo7
Pros: FAST. Overclocks like a beast(if cooled). Looks nice when powered on.
Cons: Runs hot and I mean HOT. Stock cooler is about 1inch thick and about 80mm fan size dont let the shroud fool you.
Overall Review: Idled at around 60c and load around 90-100c in a Antec 1200 with 7x 120mm fans for airflow. Reapplyed thermal paste and it did nothing to help.
Pros: Runs very cool. Overclocks like a champ. 79.6% ASIC score on mine. 1500+ @ 1.187v...amazing. Much quieter under load that the Gigabyte G1.
Cons: The Backplate (see other).
Overall Review: The "backplate" does nothing but add support. It makes no contact with memory or vrm/core backside. Luckily 1.5mm heatsinks fit underneath it. Knocked an egg off for that as it clearly states its also for added cooling.
Pros: Works great with XMP profile right out of the box. Runs very cool. Pretty low profile Heatspreaders.
Overall Review: I've had this ram since 11/11/13 and just used the XMP and called it a day. On a whim decided to overclock it. Running at. 10-11-11-26-1T DDR-2175(1088.6mhz) @1.65v rock stable 2500K Asus P8Z68-V PRO
Pros: The tracking on this pad is amazing. It feels very durable. The Green glows slighty with my Death Adder :).
Cons: None so far.
Overall Review: I noticed my accuracy increase immediately. I used 3 OCZ Behemoth Regulators in rotation before this as one got dirty I would swap out and wash. This IS LIGHTYEARS better on tracking and overall quality. After 17 years of PC gaming I have found my soulmate of a mousepad.
Pros: Amazing build quality. Amazing cable management options. Huge...which make any upgrades/mods easier. Looks pretty epic.
Overall Review: 15 years building PC's and this case has changed my life. Went from a Gen1 Antec 1200(which I thought was pretty nice) to this and WOOOOW. The quality is amazing and i used the top micro-ATX case to mount my new Corsair H-100i so it is completely separate from my build and went with every 120/140mm slot filled with Scythe Gentle Typhoon AP-15. The airflow is amazing and given the amount of fans it is a dull hum with no headphones on and with headphones I can't even tell its on. Single Best upgrade I have ever done to make my life easier and improve my airflow ever.
