OCZ Synapse Cache 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I did get some performance increase
but I can't tell how much
boot time is 15 seconds on a win7 64 bit pro
-it was cheap

Cons: this is not what I thought it was

-you can't use RAID
-had to reformat to get it to work
-no drives over 2.5 TB

no space left for me to use for my own caching
can't store a game image or switch my page file over
i'd like to be able to write blu-ray files to it

Other Thoughts: if I could use 32 gig for my own cache
and the other 32 for dataplex then this might be worth it

if you're storing large video or game files then a traditional SSD might not work for you
that being said i'd rather have SSD boot drive with windows 8 and use this thing for page file and cache to try and limit the number of writes to boot drive therefore extending it's life
I won't feel bad if this thing burns up because it was cheap

AMD Athlon II X3 450 Rana Triple-Core 3.2 GHz Socket AM3 95W ADX450WFGMBOX Desktop Processor
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I put this up against my
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz on a much better board and....running the windows 8 preview on a very fast Vertex Sata3 SSD I have to sayd that the triple core really holds it's own

Cons: wish I'd bought one of these for myself instead of only using them to build budget PC's for other people

Other Thoughts: spend more on your graphics and ram because this CPU is fine for gaming just need to OC a little

G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1333 (PC3 10666) Desktop Memory Model F3-10666CL9D-8GBRL
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: tested in single channed with only 1 stick, while 4 gigs is the sweet spot for most windows 7 and 8 needs
Dual channel or lack there of is very noticeable

Cons: red...ugly red heat thingys
I don't like it
everything in my case is blue
too lazy to replace them
