Most Favorable Review

Good memory after tweaking.

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C11D-16GXL
G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C11D-16GXL

Pros: Very good memory, with all DDR3 memory that runs at this speed you might need to tweak your settings some. With running this I had to bump the voltage up a bit to 1.55 to get it 100% stable at advertised timings and speed. Why stop their since your overclocking anyhow, bumped the voltage up to 1.6 and now have it 100% stable with the same timings at 2400MHz.

Cons: People that rate things and give their self a high tech rating and can't get this memory to work need to learn a few things then write another review. That is the major drawback of reviews on this site, I would say 90% of the bad reviews are for installation error or just not knowing how things work. For instance this memory when your motherboard says this then some tweaking may be required for anything with the * by it. DDR3 3200*(*O.C.)/ 3100*/ 3000*/ 2933*/ 2800*/ 2666*/ 2600*/ 2400*/ 2200*/ 2133*/ 2000*/ 1866*/ 1600/ 1333

Most Critical Review

First AMD card and last

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 6970 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 100311-3SR

Pros: None

Cons: The bottom DVI slot is dead will not show anything on monitor. Bios switch was already set to high, no rebate card, the box had already been opened. This is the fault of Newegg to send me a open box that they already had a RMA on this is my last purchase from them.

Seasonic.

SeaSonic G Series SSR-650RM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready
SeaSonic G Series SSR-650RM 650W ATX12V / EPS12V SLI Ready CrossFire Ready 80 PLUS GOLD Certified Modular Active PFC Power Supply New 4th Gen CPU Certified Haswell Ready

Pros: It's a Seasonic so you get the quality you would expect.

Cons: Power cables would be the largest drawback. The PCI-E cables are 2 connectors jumped off one cable (What were you thinking their Sesonic?) The connected cables are regular sleeved, the modular cables are flat, and just black, if your using a case with a side window you not really going to like the looks. ( Again what were you thinking their?)

Great Motherboard.

GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H (rev. 1.2) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard
GIGABYTE GA-Z97X-UD3H (rev. 1.2) LGA 1150 Intel Z97 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: Paired with a i7 4790K processor and 16GB of 2133 memory, everything works as intended not a single problem. I have no problems with the placement of the SATA connectors and yes you can still plug them in with the video card installed (GTX 980) For the people that complained about the M.2 SSD killing the 2 SATA ports you really need to do some research before you complain about things this is the same on all the Z97 boards.

Cons: Only one small con it puts the Vcore volts a bit higher than needed. (lower it in BIOS)

Update from my RMA

SAMSUNG 850 EVO 2.5" 500GB SATA III 32 layer 3D V-NAND Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) MZ-75E500B/AM

Pros: 100% working as intended, great RMA from Newegg only took 7 days total, I mailed it on Tuesday and recived the new one back the next Tuesday.

Cons: Had to do the first RMA.

Pros: Good looking and good quality. Works just fine but make sure it is long enough for your use, I new from other reviews how long the actual cable was.

Cons: Measuring just the cable itself 8 1/4 inches.
