Pros: Burns and reads B-Ray and anything else I need. Doesn't emit strange blue smoke when I try to use it.
Cons: As said it can get a bit loud when it spins up, but if that's really an issue then make an iso and mount it to a virtual drive so you don't have to listen to it.
Other Thoughts: It's a bare drive, you're getting what you paid for (and at a great price I might add). Honestly optical drives are falling further and further behind the times it's really a wonder they haven't disappeared already. But for those of us who still need them this makes a great solution.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Fast, rock solid, plenty of overhead for OC
Cons: Runs too cold to heat my coffee
Other Thoughts: Can't say too much on it since I haven't played with it too much yet. Running with a CM Hyper 212 aftermarket cooler and even under full load it doesn't spike over 42C. Idles around 30-33C
- Sabertooth z77
- G.Skill TridentX DDR3 1866 32g
- EVGA GTX 580 Classified
- NZXT Phantom 820 full-size chassis
Pros: Ridiculously high performance for the class it's in, no other memory come close. Running beautifully on my Sabertooth z77 for over a year now and still no issues.
Wife is so impressed she's making me build her new tower with these. Too bad the price went up on them
Cons: Fins are pretty tall, make sure you watch for that when you choose your CPU cooling. Running a CM Hyper 212 and had to move the fan into the pull position to get it in place. Not enough to lose an egg over, but be aware.
Other Thoughts: Like many other performance sticks these did not run at stock right out of the box (they were at 15-15-15-24 at 1333mhz). Gave my fsb voltage a slight tweak and a quick reboot, then they ran perfectly at advertised spec without even having to touch them manually. If you're having issues getting these to the proper timings make sure you check the G.Skill forums before throwing in the RMA towel, there's a lot of useful information available if you take the time to look.
