G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Upgraded from 8GB to 16GB on my AMD system. Easy to install and dissipates the heat well enough. Never had any issues with overheating or failure.

Cons: That it didn't turn into DDR4 version when I upgraded my system via some firmware update and increase the clock speed to the newest rate?

I've had no complaints about these memory sticks since I've owned them.

Other Thoughts: I've had these two of these RAM sticks in my system for over a year and the previous 8GB set for almost three with no problems. G.SKILL has held up well with everything I've thrown at them over the last three years.

I have not tried to overclock this particular style of memory chip, so I cannot offer any opinion on this.

WD Black 2TB Performance Desktop Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6Gb/s 64MB Cache 3.5 Inch - WD2003FZEX
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Holds my data, works with my system and doesn't require any special unlocking.

Good performance for a platter drive. My programs and games load fine and transferring data between other sources to and from it have decent speeds. Fairly quiet, even when under a load or defragging. - This is only for a single drive, nothing configured in a RAID array. I do not know how this drive functions as a RAID.

Simple to install and comes with a little packet of mounting screws, just in case you need some.

Cons: Doesn't spontaneously expand its size into a larger drive at night.

Other Thoughts: Drives are a gamble. You can get ones that are DOA, have bad sectors or fail within a few months. Drives get tossed around during transit. Things can happen. I've only had this one for a short time so it is too soon to judge. I've had various HDs from various companies over the years and I've always had good luck with the WD Black series drives. If anything happens to it, I'll update the review.

Ballistix Sport LT 16GB (4 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200) Desktop Memory Model BLS4K4G4D240FSC
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Decent performance without needing to overclock the memory.

White snow pattern matched my new motherboard's pattern.

Locks into the memory slots smoothly and rests neatly in place.

With all four memory chips in place, the heat build up isn't bad, even under a benchmark test. It got warm, but nothing that set off any alarms or warnings. So if the memory stress test didn't set them on fire, normal gaming and PC use sure won't.

Cons: None so far that I have found.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I did it wrong, but it seemed like when I tried testing the system with overclocked memory, it just seemed like I got a performance drop. Nothing to dock an egg about, since it was mere experimentation on my part.
