G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2133 (PC3 17000) Desktop Memory Model F3-2133C10D-8GAB
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: None. Substandard Ram even @ 1600 speed.

Cons: This set of memory is advertised as 2133 at 10 cl. It is right now running at 1600 with 11 cl in my GA 970A-D3 ver 1.3 Bios F12. I tried all possible manual settings to make it run at 2133 but my mobo will automatically reset is at 1600. Once I was able to run it 1833 @1.67v but it soon became unstable. I hate RMA's.....

XFX Radeon HD 4850 DirectX 10.1 HD-485X-ZNFC 1GB 256-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None so far.... : (

Cons: Running a bit old Abit KN8 mobo but I have had no issues with HD 5xxx series video cards on this mobo. I tried swapping out the PS on this just in case the XFX card is not getting enough power. I installed a Antec 500W with 22a on each rail but still no dice. Sent an email to XFX but no reply yet. I am out of ideas.... Maybe it's time to RMA this.

Other Thoughts: Any ideas on how to fix this?
