G.SKILL Sniper 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBSR
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Looks nice. DDR3-1333 gives updated performance for old motherboards.

Cons: None yet after 4 years.

Other Thoughts: When I bought my first 8GB kit 4 years ago I was hoping they would pass the test of time on my ASRock 890fx deluxe 3. They have - and I actually recently just bought another 8GB kit of this to complete the full 16. I'm hoping to get another 4 years from all 4 sticks!

CORSAIR Hydro Series H80i High Performance Water/Liquid CPU Cooler. 120mm
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Easy setup, drivers allow you to switch fan speeds at any time, drivers also allow you to change the color of the "Corsair" logo, closed-loop requires very little maintenance compared to other water-cooling options, nice way to have water cooling with very little space.

Cons: The cooling really isn't that impressive for the price.

Other Thoughts: Air cooling can get you better performance than this, especially for the price. I was running a nice Zalman aircooler before this that achieved much better results for a price tag of only 50$ 3 years ago. Still 4/5 eggs because the rest of the product was executed nicely.

Creative Sound Blaster Zx 116dB PCIe Gaming Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp and Desktop Audio Control Module
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great sound quality, nice looking card, can handle my high 200 OHM beyerdynamic dt880's, in my opinion the included program is very functional and handy. You are able to switch from speakers to headphones with ease.

Cons: The ACM reduces sound quality. The difference is slight but if you enjoy getting the most out of your hardware (which I do) it leaves you wanting more. I also think the ACM causes some 'crackling' at high volumes, but I can't confirm this. I eventually switched to plugging my speakers/mic directly into the back of the card because I knew my sound quality had more potential. I took out 2 eggs for this because the price gain of the zx from the z is the ACM.

Other Thoughts: It's a shame the ACM ruins the relevance of buying a zX. Just buy the Z, you'll save some money and your sound quality will be better without using the ACM.

I use Beyerdynamic DT880's with this card and at about 50% volume level in my mixer I am able to hear the 'edge' of all footsteps in CSGO (no need for scout mode). No one has a competitive advantage over me while playing this game as I can hear footsteps from the farthest programmed point.

Sound quality for music is great especially if you are upgrading from motherboard sound. The DT880's are known for accuracy and the Sound Blaster Z will give you a nice accurate and clean sound while supporting a high ohm frequency. Their really is no need for using equalizers when pairing a clean and accurate headphone/soundcard combination. You will hear things the way they were meant to be heard.
