Pros: Installed In a MSI Gaming M7 motherboard with an I7 6700k. Enabled XMP profile in the bios and it runs at the rated 3200.

Cons: No noticeable performance increase in games over the 8 Gig of Ripjaws V 2400 I already had. It does benchmark a little higher.

Polk Audio RTi8 Floorstanding Loudspeaker (single)

5 out of 5 eggs These are Great 03/17/2015

This review is from: Polk Audio RTi8 Floorstanding Loudspeaker (single)

Pros: I have owned a lot of Polk speakers(M70, M50, M40, M30, RTi10, CSiA6, FXiA6, RTiA3, RTi6 and the RTi8's). These are much more detailed than the M70's and have a warmer more open sound than the RTi10's.

The RTi8 paired with the CSiA6 and FXiA6 surrounds give me a great home theater experience.

Even though my RTi10's have a lot more bass the mid's on these RTi8's sound so much better to me.

If there is any weakness in the sound of these speakers it is the bass. I run them with a sub but often listen to music without the sub and find the bass adequate for my taste.

These don't need tons of power to sound their best. I power these with a Yamaha RX-V773 receiver rated @ 95 watts per channel and am totally satisfied with the sound. I have listened to these on a Yamaha receiver rated @ 70 watts per channel and that was plenty for these.

Cons: Bass may not be enough to satisfy many.

Takes many hours of break-in before they sound their best.

Other Thoughts: Of all the Polk speakers I have owned I like these the best for home theater fronts and for listening to stereo music.

At less than $200 each these are a bargain.

5 out of 5 eggs Runs Project CARS in all it's Glory 01/29/2015

This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 970 GAMING 4G

Pros: With my I7 2600K this thing runs PCARS great. It is a huge upgrade over my previous GTX 770 4G.
Easily overclocks to exceed the performance of a base GTX 980.
My temps never exceed 70 degrees with the fan on auto even when running GPU at 110%.

Cons: Backplate model cost much more.

Other Thoughts: I read a lot of reviews before I purchased this and most thought this was the best of the GTX 970's.
