Pros: Plays BF3 with a mix of High and Ultra at 1920x1200 with 50 to 60 fps constant on Caspian 64 player. I'm using my old 285 for physx. I'm very pleased with the results.
Intel i7 920 @ 3.7GHz
Corsair Dominator 12GB ram (6 x 2GB)
PC Power and Cooling 750W PSU
Cons: Didn't come with the coupon for Batman unless I'm not understanding something correctly.
Pros: -Lots of space inside
-Nice tool-less features
-Very nice cable routing features
-Very light weight
-Nice hot-swap hard drive connections make it very easy to install the hard drives
-Comes with a case to put all of the case hardware in
-Great quality feel to it and just all of the nice touches you expect from a Lian Li case
Cons: -No fan controller to adjust the speed
-In order to accommodate large motherboards that support 3-way SLI for example (which I do not have), the mother board is placed fairly high above the power supply. As a result I couldn't route the 8-pin cable for the motherboard behind the motherboard tray because the cable was too short. So hope you have very long cables on your power supply in order to fully utilize the cable routing in the case.
Overall Review: This is my first Lian Li case and I love it so far. It's just really classy looking and has a very high quality feel to it as it should. It was everything I was hoping for and more.
Pros: Bought 6GB kit in April 2009 for my (then) new build. Set the ram up in the BIOS for proper settings, never had a problem on Asus P6T Deluxe V2 running my Core i7 920 (C0) at 3.9GHz. The ram is actually a little underclocked (around 1500 Mhz at 8-8-8-24) in order to get the overall CPU overclock. Very stable.
Then in November 2010 I bought a second 6GB kit of the same ram for a total of 12GB. I was very pleased that once installed I had no problems running the entire setup using similar settings. I actually did back down the CPU overclock to 3.78GHz just ease up on the 1.5 year old computer now. All 12GB are running just fine though, no problems with the overclock at all.
Cons: Not really a con at all, but the ram is rather tall. If you have a large heatsink it might run into the ram, but not likely still though. I use a Prolimatech Megahalems and with the Asus P6T Deluxe V2, the push fan actually is touching the first stick of ram which hinders the ability to lock in the fan on the heatsink. The fan fits in so precisely between the heatsink and the ram though that it actually works just fine this way. Just something to keep in mind though.
Overall Review: I'm now a solid believer in Corsair ram. This stuff just works, no problems. Like I said, I bought 2 sets of this ram a year and a half apart from each other and they work together flawlessly. That's solid manufacturing or maybe I just got lucky. Either way I couldn't be happier.
