G.SKILL PI 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL6T-6GBPI
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Amazing RAM for the price, replaced my old Ocz blade series memory which began causing random BSODs and failed memtest86+ (no surprise there) and this g.skill is running fully stable at advertised timings of 6-8-6-20 1T @ 1603mhz with 1.62 dram bus voltage and 1.40 QPI/DRAM (IMC) voltage on my Asus P6T w/ an i7 920 @ 4.0ghz

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: System performs much faster now with this memory while using lower voltages and faster timings than previously with OCZs poor quality memory which they discontinued altogether ironically.

Overall very pleased with this memory as I've been in the past with G.Skill's products and superb customer service. Highly recommended for those wanting the fastest and most stable cas 6 DDR3 1600 out there for their high end PC's.

Pros: Looks nice...?

Cons: The board arrived in what looked like a previously opened box even though I bought it new. Proceeded to install the board into my system and after double checking everything and hitting the power button, nothing happened.

Checked the Corsair power supply by itself and with hardware attached (fans, drives, etc) and it worked just fine.

Tested the board by itself with the power supply and just RAM and CPU. Nothing happened upon hitting power again, not even an attempt of anything turning on.

Board arrived DOA.. knew I shouldn't have gone with this board let alone Gigabyte.

The LAST board I purchase from gigabyte, and possibly newegg depending on how the return/refund process goes as I don't want another one of these, period.

Other Thoughts: I'll stick with ASUS as they've always worked right from the start without problems. Tech support might not be as good with ASUS, but at least they HAVE a quality control team unlike gigabyte apparently. Last two gigabyte boards I've bought have both been DOA. Last two ASUS? Running in both machines next to me perfectly fine for over 12 month's in one and 36 month's in the other.

Newegg, how are we supposed to know if the product we receive is actually NEW when the box isn't sealed whatsoever, the "new" RAM slot sticker you usually peal off a brand new board is missing, as well as the "new" CPU sticker that covers the socket?

I remember when the motherboard box would actually arrive with a plastic seal tightly secured vertical and horizontal around the motherboard box which was a nice sense of security.

Now an open box and retail box seem to arrive in the same condition and packaging aside from the fact an open box motherboard I assume doesn't include the cables and extras.

ASUS GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) DirectX 11 ENGTX570 DCII/2DIS/1280MD5 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Upgraded from a single Sapphire ATI 4870 1GB card to this and the difference is astounding. I was a bit worried about the cooling issue I heard early on with some of the 570's and then saw ASUS release this card and heard good things about it with the VRM upgrade being 6+2 and of course huge mounted stock cooler which keeps my idle temps in the low 30's with the fan at 18% and no higher than 45C under game load with the fan at 35%.

Cons: EVGA's tech support/lifetime warranty is better than ASUS's still I imagine.

Other Thoughts: So went with it over EVGA and am very satisfied with my purchase overall in terms of the cooling and performance. Haven't got a chance to overclock it yet, but I did find that ASUS Smart Doctor has more options and ability to OC than EVGA Precision which comparatively did not allow voltage changes whatsoever.
