G.SKILL Ares Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C10D-16GAO

  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Worked right out of the box, no needed drivers.
Pretty cheap for 16gigs.
Small form factor, fits underneath a Hyper 212 EVO heatsink.
No RAM caused crashes yet.
Amazing shiny orange color.

Cons: I didn't get a sticker with it D: The machine must have missed the package. :(. But that's OK I can find one online probably.

Other Thoughts: PC build:
AMD-8320 CPU
Asus M9-A99fx pro 2.0 motherboard.
1 Tb HDD
2 TB Seagate HDD
256gb Samsung 240 evo SSD
Hyper 212 EVO Heatsink
Phantom 620 Case
750w Corsair RM750 PSU.
Standard disk drive.

AMD A10-5800K Trinity Quad-Core 3.8 GHz Socket FM2 100W AD580KWOHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D

Pros: This APU can run Thief on low setting with nearly smooth framerates, and that is pretty darn good.
It can run Titanfall on medium with ease.
Only 100W.
3.8 GHz is AMAZING for this cheap of a CPU.
The standard heatsink/fan that comes with it runs pretty well, have not had any overheating even with pretty intense gaming.

Cons: The box is kinda flimsy, don't expect a nice metal box like the 8350, only reason for this con is that there might be damage during shipping, but barely any if there is.

G.SKILL Ares Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-1600C9D-8GAO
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Fast.
Low heatsink.
Easy to install.
RAM is RAM is RAM, I mean it does what RAM does. Not much to say about it.

Cons: Not sure whether it was the motherboard I put it in, or the RAM, but they were both new. But the RAM was kinda tight the first time I put it in, but that's pretty normal with new ram/mobos.

Other Thoughts: I definitely recommend getting this if it drops below $70.
