Most Critical Review

Painfully bad ram.

OCZ Gold Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G10664GK
OCZ Gold Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR3 1066 (PC3 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ3G10664GK

Pros: It showed up.

Cons: It showed up. Bsod's at every turn. When I finally found a setting that would actually allow me to load the OS the ram was too unstable to even run a memtest. Adjusted every possible timing and volt settting as per the manufacturers webstie and got nowhere fast. Tried the ram in three different working setups and still nothing.

Overall Review: If you're a glutton for punishment by all means pull the trigger and buy this ram. Will not even consider ever buy from this company again. Went through the companies database and forums for more hours than i'd like to admit trying to find a timing/volt setting or bios setting and came up emty. It appears very few have had any sucess with this particular ram. I'd stay far away. Btw it forces you to give it 1 egg, and thats two too many.

Solid Ram

Pros: Very stable with a decent cas. Been using for a year with zero errors, at 59.99 it can't be beat.

Cons: none

Amazing cooler.

Pros: Took temps on my 965 BE from 42/64 idle and load. To 32/46 idle and load. And thats after overclocking to 3.8. Outperforms any air cooler i've ever owned and is virtually silent.

Cons: None

Best bang for your buck and then some.

Pros: Extremely inexpensive for a gaming headset. The sound is above average for the price. I couldn't believe how sturdy and heavy these things were when I opened the box. I was expecting some really light weight plastic and these things were very well put together. The mic is amazing for using vent or skype, only ques up when I talk not from my keyboard or when I move something on my desk. I've been testing it for hours now and I can't get it to vent to que up unless I talk which is nice.

Cons: There is a slight hiss when I'm on vent but only I can hear it. Might be something I'm doing wrong or a setting I can change.

Overall Review: I've bought around 5 or so gaming headsets throughout the years and most were 20 or 30 dollars more than these. Yet these seem to outperform them 10 fold. Buy and me shocked at the quality you get from a 23 dollar headset. I'm actually considering buying another incase they get discontinued or something. Oh yeah the ear pieces are large and soft. They seem to fit my head as though they were made for them.
