Most Favorable Review

Pretty good for smaller case and lower demand

Rosewill ROCC-16002 High Performance Long Life Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler with Silent 92mm PWM Fan and 2 Direct Contact Heatpipes, Supports Intel & AMD CPU

Pros: Price Performance Noise level Smaller size

Cons: mildly difficult bracket

Overall Review: The stock fan for the AMD FX6300 was showing its age and sometimes ramping up speed and humming loudly. I was very tempted by the 212 EVO, but my case would not allow it. At full power the Rosewill kept the CPU around 60C just idling; now at Power Mode = better performance (middle of the road) it seems to be keeping it at 36C. I have yet to see if I will notice a big performance hit when I'm really doing something taxing like processing video. I do like how much cooler and quieter the PC is now. The bracket was mildly difficult to install. I have a couple of knuckle scars to show for it.

2nd one for 2021 Moto 3 Power, not so hot

Pros: it works

Cons: It does not work as smoothly as the one in my Samsung J3 Achieve worked. Slow transfers and wifi connections dropped; I realize this may be the fault of the phone itself and not the card, so I still gave it five stars.

we shall see, a little slow right now

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C9D-16GXH
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C9D-16GXH

Pros: It's GSkill. Quite honestly I am hoping for the best. I have had nothing but good luck with them in the past.

Cons: Revised: Best speed attained 1866 Original: Slower than expected in a Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P (rev. 1.0) running an AMD FX6300: 1066MHz (!) 66ns latency (!)

Overall Review: Revised: With a bit more time, I can say I'm pretty happy. I confess to cluelessness at first. Bios vs. memtest86 vs. CPUZ gave seemingly various results. I have gotten the RAM up to 1877 on my mobo, though 2000 should be possible. Tech support at GSkill have been reponsive and helpful. Original: I just bought a pair of F3-2133C9D-16GXH through Newegg/Disram. I installed them in my Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3P (rev. 1.0) running an AMD FX6300. I tried setting the speeds to profiles 1 and 2. I tried manually setting the timings to 9 11 11 31 1.6V. No luck; BIOS error. The memory defaults to settings of 1066MHz(!) I know the motherboard limits to 2000, but that is quite a difference. For what it's worth, I'm coming directly from running 2 2GB sticks of GSkill Ripjaws running at 1866. The memory passed memtest86 at the slower speed. I have emailed GSkill at their U.S. support; hopefully they may have some suggestions.
