G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 (PC3 14900) Desktop Memory Model F3-1866C9D-16GXM

Pros: Works as advertised, quick support from GSkill in response to my question(s).

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: I used two pair of these in my new media center build. Consisting of an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and a Vishera FX-8350. By default it comes up at 1366mhz. But after bumping up the NB voltage just a tad (from 1.10 v to 1.156 v) they come up and "sing pretty at 1866. I choose to run them at 1728 MHz, cuz the associated multipliers bring my Vishera up to 4379 mhz. with stock voltages.

Everything appears to be stable and solid, and it all runs so nice and cool. ;-)

The "latest" home media center build:

5 out of 5 eggs Nice product 10/24/2011

This review is from: APEVIA eSATA15DP 15" 2 x SATA to eSATA x 2 Ports w/ Bracket

Pros: This has a true eSATA connector on the bracket side which is exactly what I neded.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Lets me use my BlacX eSATA doc by "converting" an unused internal SATA port into an external eSATA port.

Sans Digital 8-Bay eSATA RAID 0/1/10/5/JBOD Tower Storage Enclosure w/ 6G PCIe Card TR8M+B (Black)

Pros: Excellent/AMAZING shipping protection! This thing was packed to withstand anything!

Very attractive, nice mechanical design. Slide out trays work well. I put 8 Seagate 2TB Green drives in it and they all came up and worked as advertised. I am running each drive as a seperate JBOD unit.

Cute little Controller card.

Cosmic bi-color LED lightshow on the front panel! ;-)

Cons: I purchased this SAME unit, but was listed under a different heading on NewEgg. Other than that it is identical, right down to thee HiPoint RocketRaid 622 card.

BTW the HiPoint website lists the RR622 as a SATA III solution so it should be capable of up to 6Gb/Sec xfer rates. But good luck finding SATA drives that can go this fast. I am running a STATE-OF-THE-ART ASUS MoBo with on board internal SATA III ports connected to three, 3 TB SATA III internal drives and the best they do is 104-110 Mb/Sec.

I plan to buy another one and populate it with 3TB drives.

Other Thoughts: This was just the ticket for my new Media Center PC. It allows LOTS of storage while still giving me SATA II transfer speeds. Copyinng 1+ TeraByte chunks in JBOD mode gives speeds in excess of 110MB/Sec.

VERY nice. :-)
