only lasted 2 years3/22/2018 7:51:01 PM

Pros: sexy board with lots of IO and great UEFI options

Cons: only lasted 2 years before system hang started. Geek squad verified my findings this week. tested all parts of the PC and all past tests. still receiving hang and memory error. 1 egg only because a board of this cost and being for HEDT it should last 5-8 years at least. ASRock also seems to have a lackluster support team for responding. for a decade I used only ASus and Gigabyte boards now I will be going back to Asus as it never failed me. in 15 years of PC gaming this is only my second hardware failure which may be good luck for me or a bad choice of OEM this time.

Overall Review: being a x99 board I hope this repair is a fast turnaround!!

Gskill wins again2/10/2015 12:46:36 PM

Pros: Gskill quality, looks, Price of 129 when i purchased

Cons: Timings. I really wish i could get better timing on this. I seems to be slower that Gskill 1866. CAS latency could improve, i fell into the MHZ trap as RAM was one of the weaker parts of my PC knowledge

Overall Review: If anyone finds information about improving the CAS timings please share your information. Again Gskill maks quality coolers and this is Hynix RAM.

Manufacturer Response:
. Dear Customer Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear you like the appearance of the RAM and got it for a great price. For the latest processors, the MHz frequency of the RAM is more important than timings. This RAM will surely out perform DDR3-1866; in fact, you can set your BIOS to run at DDR3-1866 and see if it performs better. If you would like to improve CAS timing, raise DRAM Voltage and you may be able to lower it. For any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us directly, or visit us on the Official G.Skill technical forum. Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT Quality and customer service are our top priorities. Tech Support Email: RMA Dept Email: G.Skill Forum:
Well built cooler12/8/2014 10:00:39 AM

Pros: AMD R9 290 for $200!! Mantle is amazing and this card performs much better than i expected. This replaced 2x HD 6970s Xfire. Furmark 1080p no AA score is 4400. Best cooler out there with a metal shroud

Cons: TDP, Size,

Overall Review: No games came with the card like they were supposed to. Emailed newegg but there is a 6 day wait. I was really looking forward to testing this out on newer games. i want my GOld reward and Civ beyond earth!!!

18 months later6/23/2014 5:45:24 AM

Pros: GsKill makes great products, no issues in 18 months. faster than my Seagate HDD i had.

Cons: Krystaldisk test show that this disk never readis half the rated speed. i get about 208mbs max in sata6.0 AHCI. Wish i had done more homewok and went Crucial or Samsung Evo and got more space and speed for the same price i paid.

Overall Review: Make sure you do your homework. 120gb at this price is not good. Look at Crucial samsung or Corsair.

. Dear Customer Thank you for your G.Skill purchase and review. Glad to hear the SSD is working well in your system. The G.Skill Phoenix III series SSD should perform much faster than 208MB/s, so please clone/back up the files, make sure you have the latest firmware and drivers for the SSD, wipe the drive with a secure erase program, then re-install the operating system and files to see if it performs better. The general range is 500MB/s, so if you do not experience this, feel free to send it in for RMA exchange to see if a replacement works better. You are backed by a 3 year manufacturer warranty, so you are protected from any defects such the SSD not performing as rated. G.Skill fully stands behind it's products and will make sure they run at full speed. Thank you GSKILL SUPPORT Quality and customer service are our top priorities.
