ADATA XPG V2 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model AX3U2400W8G11-DGV

Pros: Worked great on my rig and never used overclocking with my 5th gen I7.

Cons: One of the sticks went out after 6 months and now the second one died. Need to see about warranty replacement. I liked these because they matched the color of my rig and other components just wish they lasted longer than 6 months.

Other Thoughts: Spent $160 on these and would expect them to last longer. Need help on this one.

Pros: *****UPDATE***** I got my third board in and took about 30 minutes to setup my build and it posted BIOS no issue at all. Had one Boots very fast!. The Killer LAN is great tool and has greatly sped up network performance with ease. Bios settings quick and easy to OC your system and even can default back to the UEFI if you over clock the performance to high or if there is an issue. I placed a nice 4770k i7 in this and it hums. Comes with some great SATA adapters that are bent to a 90 degree angle on one side and slid into my drives perfect. (this helped with cable management, I MUST BUY MORE). 5-6 fan headers on board so If you dont have a fan controller built into your case you have plenty of options.

Cons: I had to take a star off because it did not read my ram correctly and severely under clocked my Adata 2400 8x2 down to 1333. Easy fix but also had issues with it booting with single mode instead of duel channel. (yes I checked that they were in the correct DIMM SLOTS) Also a lot of bloatware in the bios. SERIOUSLY GOOGLE TOOLBAR LAWLERSKATES!!!!!!. Man keep the BIOS clean my friends. Other than that great board

Pros: Again, great looking board with a lot of features. Helped configure my friends who bought the same board and left a review on this product. Name is David V. Board does not detect Ram and under clocks it. Bios was clean and easy to adjust settings

Cons: Second board that was shipped to me DOA. Ran all tests again, Checking dimms, PCU, GPU, taking it out of case......etc. I just got my third one in Friday and will build it today. We will see how it goes. Not super happy since one corner of the box was smashed in and once again. The motherboard was packaged on the top of the box with no bubble wrap. My CPU was packaged with the chip facing and touching the outside of the box. Very displeased with how the packaging on my products were on this considering I just had to RMA a second board. I took plenty of pictures of the box and will take a video of the new install and CPU slot. Newegg told me that last board could not be determined what was wrong with the board. No bent pins and everything looked great. Is is bad luck or am I getting bad product? Considering my friend bought the same exact parts as me and we work in the IT business and have ample parts to test its a shame to say the product I am getting is not working. Maybe its because the boards brand new but I liked the ideal of not having to update the bios and play with CMOS and flash drives. Thought new would mean working (better) out of the box. Wish me luck and I will update everyone later.

Other Thoughts: This is my first time complaining about how my product was shipped. After RMA two boards man I was expecting my product to come on a golden cloud of air and awesomeness. Instead of got a pretty banged up box with stuff poorly packaged.
