Western Digital WD VelociRaptor WD3000HLHX 300GB 10000 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Bought this as a less expensive alternative to SSD a little over a year ago as my primary boot drive. Has performed just as expected, not up to SSD speeds but much faster than 7200rpm. No regrets.

Cons: No problems. Still going strong after a year.

Other Thoughts: Handles a load well. I typically boot my OS + a single VM from this drive without perceptible lag from either system.

Pros: Fast, stable, low latency. Both sticks purchased show zero errors.
I like those flashy, red heat spreaders.

Cons: All good.

Other Thoughts: Latency is low enough that I don't see a need to overlclock.

Pros: Fast and stable on my Z77 chipset! No plans to overclock at this time. I'm plenty happy with the out-of-box performance.

Cons: All good so far.

Other Thoughts: Running the i7 with these:
Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme6
Memory: G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
