G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-8GAB
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: - Low profile, fits under my Corsair CAFA50
- XMP is flawless on P8Z77-V Deluxe mobo and i7-2600K
- Stable from 1.25V @1600C11 to 1.65V @2133C9
- I like blue!

Cons: - Size - 8GB is not quite enough for me. That being said, these are more than fast enough that a swap to SSD is barely noticeable and the average user likely won't ever exceed this.

Other Thoughts: i7-2600K @4.4GHz, RAID 0 - 2 x Corsair Force GT 120GB and this RAM just sung its heart out. It is now being retired to a low-power HTPC setup. Aiming for under 10W idle and this RAM can do it with ease.
Have not tried anything lower than 1.2V @1600MHz C11, timings can likely be tweaked.
* I actually own the F3-2133C9D-8GAB, a C9 not C10 as listed here. As a result my sticks run 1.65V as opposed to 1.6V.

Razer BlackWidow Mechanical PC Gaming Keyboard – Cherry MX Blue (RZ03-00391500-R3U1)
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Great feel, has lights?

Cons: Since day 1 Gaming Mode has been sporadic (turns itself on and off)
Got progressively worse with every firmware update.
Keys double tap now (the same keys, every time)
Intermittent connection issues (repeatedly reconnecting)

Other Thoughts: Tried everything under the sun to fix this, seems like a common problem with any Google searches.

Save yourself an RMA nightmare and buy something with more reliable drivers and/or software.
