Corsair P128 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Large capacity for an SSD
Super Fast

** Now supports TRIM **

I ordered mine before they supported it but I can still get it with a firmware update utility provided by corsair on thier site. They said all units being sent out now will come with Trim pre-enabled.

Cons: Still a bit expensive but average price for an SSD of the same capacity

Other Thoughts: Go to corsair forums and get the Trim firmware update if yours didn't come with it, also there is a thread on SSD tweaks to do in windows to increase performance.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 5870 DirectX 11 100281VXSR 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1. Runs extremely cool. 30-34C on idle and 44-50C max while gaming for hours on stock fan speeds - I'm talking 30% fan speeds.
2. Very quiet ... not silent but not as loud as my GTX 260 which I had to bump to 80% fan speeds while gaming.
3. Graphics are smooth, significant FPS increase

Cons: 1. blows hot air from gpu into case and does not exhaust out the back of the case (non-issue if you have good case cooling)
2. Flicker on my 2nd monitor in dual monitor setup. I tried raising the idle and 2d clocks and memory as suggested but I still have this issue (this is where I have to give -1) It could be a driver issue, but more than likely it's a gpu bios issue which would require a flash, we'll see.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm very satisfied with purchase. Still looking for a fix on the dual monitor flicker problem otherwise it would have been 5+ stars

Mushkin Enhanced Redline 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model 996746
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: I've used Redline DDR3 triple channel for x58 systems in two different client builds and it's some of the best RAM I've ever used. I've been waiting for this RAM to come out for a while and yesterday I called Mushkin to ask them about it.

They said that the chips that perform in this very low latency range are hard to aquire and they can only produce a small amount at any time. In fact, they said that Newegg was only getting TEN units that day.

I put myself on auto-notify and continuously refreshed the browser, keeping it up while doing other things. Around 11:30pm EST they finally came up and I grabed my two units (8Gb). I checked this morning when I got to work and as I expected they are sold out again.

I'll respond back after my system is complete to give a run down on these DDR3 dual channel modules.

Cons: None. I can't think of one thing. Units come in two flavors of heatsinks. Frostbite is the regular heatsink and then Accent is the thick heavy heatsink. If you get Accent keep in mind that it's really thick and you can't put modules next to each other which means only one set of RAM.

Other Thoughts: I'm a hobbist computer builder with a site at youtube/tjharlow. I've done lots of system builds. I'll have a video review later on in the month because I'm still waiting on Silverstone Fortress 02 and looking to see how GT300 series performs before I grab a 5870.
