PNY Optima 4GB (2x2 GB) DDR2 800 MHz PC2-6400 Desktop DIMM Memory Module Dual Channel Kit - MD4096KD2-800 Memory Speed-Advisory

Memory Speed-Advisory, (What's this?) Rated this low to get your attention, but memory type is just fine. Even though PC2-6400 is compatible to lower memory speeds aka 667 and I had this same memory package installed in my computer, be advised that you must HAVE a memory type for your memory data speed installed to limit the memory bus to the proper speed. My system is a 667 memory speed, consequently the pc2-6400 with the existing memory type was NOT compatible and did not limit the memory speed as needed, let the bus run at 800 not 667. Solution ordered a pc2-5300 package and with my existing pc2-6400 packet it worked just fine. The memory is acceptable memory and I have had NO problems with it.
DDR2 800MHz PC2-6400 DIMM Memory Module, (What's this?) The PNY OPTIMA DDR2 800MHz PC2-6400 DIMM Memory Module MD1024SD2-800 works as advertised with no problems.The modules fit perfectly in my desktops memory slots.
gave me BSOD after 3 weeks of usage, (What's this?) my computer worked fine for a couple of weeks. then i noticed some slowing down issues. and then started getting BSOD after 20-30 minutes. I swapped in my old memory and the BSOD went away. unfortunately i threw away the packaging so I couldn't return it.
Great price, works perfect!, (What's this?) Great price on memory plus super saver free shipping makes this so worth it. PNY is a trusted brand that I have had good luck with in that I haven't had one go bad on me yet.
Simple & it works., (What's this?) This is perfect for updating my old PC. I had a top-of-the-line PC for a seven years ago but it lacked in the RAM department. This product is easy to install and is compatible with much older chipsets. This is perfect for the person who doesn't want to (again) fully replace their tower; instead, upgrade your RAM.
It's memory, (What's this?)
Half way works, (What's this?) I purchased the 4GB of ram and one of the sticks was bad. My computer kept freezing until I figured out which one was bad.
Recent purchases, (What's this?) received in a few days, installed easily, and works just fine. I hve no problems with this purchase or amazon at this point, and would reccomend it to others.
Just as ordered..., (What's this?) I received this product this afternoon after ordering it last night with next day shipping. The product came brand new, as pictured on the listing, and there were no issues with the packaging, or install. Took a whole 3 minutes to put this in my computer. Saying that, if you don't know your way around the inside of a computer, do NOT try to put this in yourself. Snapping pieces off, and forcing pieces into places they shouldn't go can kill your computer before you even have the chance to upgrade it. This was a major upgrade for my home desktop, and it came through great. I'm running a Dell Dimension 5100 that my wife bought almost 6 years ago. I've made upgrades over time to keep this thing running in the modern day, and this is another upgrade that will add years to the life of this PC. I added this RAM to the existing 2gb, and now the PC recognizes 6gb of RAM, and it jumped my Windows Experience Rating almost 3 points. I've only been using the PC with the addition RAM for about 10 minutes, and I can already see a HUGE difference in performance all around. Everything loads faster, and the PC seems to be running alot more smoothly. Glad I made this upgrade, and I would definately recommend this product to anyone looking for a decent budget upgrade for their aging PC.
MEMTEST86+ errors galore., (What's this?) Installed and windows started flipping out. Restarted and ran memtest and saw why, to be fair I tried it in another computer and had the same results. I'm giving an extra star because 2 day shipping isn't long to wait for a replacement, which was clean in memtest after 2 passes.

    Turtle Beach Audio Advantage Amigo II USB Sound Card & Headset Adapter It works for my MacBookPro but

    Mac User, Just what I needed., (What's this?) I order a analog headset not paying attention to my iMac not having a mic port. I ordered this hoping that it would solve my problem. So far so good. It works just like advertised. I dont see a drop in audio quality. And I can know use my headset.
    Turtle USB, (What's this?) Item arrived quickly and unharmed. Had it set up in a few minutes and started playing sound almost right away. Sometimes a little static comes through but it goes away with even the lowest volume. Great quality for a decent price.
    Nice, (What's this?) Works fine on xp 64 !!! My sound card does not work but this thing does. I would recommend for sure.
    USB Sound, (What's this?) I have run into several older programs not wanting to run their sound files when I upgraded to windows 7. With this device all sound is ported through the USB and I can again enjoy the sound of older games. The only drwaback I have with this device is that I can not take advantage of multi speaker surround sound. For the price and ease of use it is hard to beat.
    Noisy, (What's this?) I needed one of these because the headphone jack on my Vaio VPCSB11FX broke. I thought this would have better sound quality than my laptop's sound card but it has a lot of background noise especially when the CPU or hard drive is working, it makes a low grinding noise that sounds awful, sounds that the built in one didn't make through the headphone jack. Also it does not support 96khz ASIO like the built-in does. So I am disappointed.

    Don't buy this if you do music work, it is low quality and has an annoying blinking blue light.
    Glitch, (What's this?) There's a glitch in the USB Sound card that makes it skip every few seconds.
    I'd recommend another USB Audio Card if you want something that works well.
    The quality is good and the durability is good, just the glitch takes away most of.
    Simple, but short-lived..., (What's this?) After only 6 or so months, the Turtle crept around the bend and gave up the ghost. I'm on the site now looking for another type (brand) that works the same way - only for a lot longer.
    Got a deffective product and did not get another one, (What's this?) As I said in the title, the product I recieved was defective. It worked wonderfully for the first 10 minutes, gave great output and so on. But after said timespan, it started rapidly clicking and the power eventually cut off.
    Works for a DJ headphone jack, (What's this?)
    It works for my MacBookPro but, (What's this?) Well after 5 yeas of using my MacBookPro( yes my Mac is old )) the line out for sound is dead since I have been using it alot connecting to headphone and to powered speakers lately.

    AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor, Black Edition (HDT90ZFBGRBOX) Very nice upgrade

    Solid, I love this chip since it works well and is pretty fast. But the main reason why I got this chip is for value and simplicity. I switched to AMD after being left behind in the wake of Intel's numerous platform changes. AMD offerd a predicable upgrade path meaning that I would not have to buy a whole new computer if i want to upgrade. And they did this for lower coast than Intel. However I cannot recomend this chip for new system builds as AMD's new platform is out. Get the new chip. But dont worry any AMD chip will give you the same simplicity and value as I enjoy with this proc.
    Very nice upgrade, (What's this?) I upgraded my X2 250 to this X6 1090T and added a new video card, and a system that used to do nothing but surf the web is now playing the latest games. I don't think you can do much better than this for your dollar.
    A powerful 6 core CPU that runs cool, AMD 1090T

    This CPU is a workhorse. I have owned it for about 16 months and it runs flawlessly. I overclocked it to 4.2 GHz and it runs very cool. At idle it is 26 to 28 degrees C and at full load on all 6 cores it is 50 degrees C after 2 hours of stress testing. It actually runs as fast as an 1100T I own and runs several degrees cooler under the same loads.

    I did not use the stock fan and I used a Corsair H50 water cooler. The CPU is a great buy for the price versus performance and is rated in the top 15 price performers for CPUs. In normal working conditions the CPU hardly gets stressed and under heavy loads of video conversion it runs at 45% to 65 % of load.

    I installed it into a Gigabyte 890FXA-UD5 AMD 890FX Socket AM3 mother board and use Windows 7 OEM installed software in a custom build. I am very happy with the performance of this CPU and AMD did a good job on this one.

    For the money you cannot beat it!

    My Build:
    Cooler Master HAF 932 Full Tower Black Case
    Corsair 8GB DDR3 PC12800 1600MHz (4x2GB)

    Primary hard drive 7.
    Outstanding Processor, (What's this?) I use this on a home brew computer running virtual machines and a 64bit OS with 16GB Ram. The processor is fast and stable.
    While it is OC friendly, I do not OC it.

    Installation was a snap and my motherboard recognized it immediatly.
    I have used AMD Processors for years as they can not be beaten in a cost per performance analysis.

    Not current bleading edge technology, however it serves my needs at a price I can afford.
    great buy! i got lucky, (What's this?) I bought one of these from amazon about a year ago.. the frist processor i recived was doa within 3 days amazon sent me a new one within 2 days .. i was highly relieved.. i got very lucky with my buy i got a 1090t that is capable of doing 4.2ghz all day long ..
    Great Chip!, (
    Great for multi-tasking during software development, (What's this?) For my use - this is a great fit. A decent price on a great processor. I'm not a gamer or an someone that is likely to overclock, but multi-tasking in my profession is critical. I've got this CPU paired with 8 gigs of RAM, an SSD drive as my system drive and a western digital caviar black for the data drive. With the hardware set up listed above, I have been running two virtual machines, compiling large projects in visual studio and with that going on no other tasks even started to slow down.
    FAST, FAST , FAST - Worth every penny., (What's this?) Bought this to upgrade my old AMD x2 6000+ dual core chip. This x6 1090t has exceeded my expectations. Installation was simple. Included fan is actually quite. Running this chip with 8 GB ram & Ubuntu 11.10 64 bit as operating system. Have virtualbox installed also running WIN7 x64 pro. Everything is just FAST. Couldn't ask for a better processor. This will meed my needs for a long time.
    Good performance,
    Phenom II x6, This CPU was well priced and arrived on time in fine shape. I installed it in a new home build and I have it overclocked to 3.6 GHz with air cooling. No problems. This hexacore CPU will do just about anything you want and very quickly.

    Corsair Hydro Series H100 Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler (CWCH100) Fantastic

    My Corsair H-70 leaked and destroyed my high end motherboard., At first appearance, I was extremely excited about purchasing a Corsair H-70 Liquid CPU cooler. I totally liked the idea of how a massive CPU air cooler would no longer restrict the overall air flow in my new CM HAF 932. Also, just the thought of much less weight on my motherboard was very attractive to me. Finally, when I read the benchmarks on the Corsair H-70, and how it did a fairly good job of cooling, I was sold on it.

    After reading many, many glowing reviews and absolutely stellar reports about Corsair's Liquid cooled H-70, I eagerly purchased one and installed it in my computer.

    It worked well for about 30 days. Suddenly, one day when I can home I smelled the very strong odor of something similar to anti-freeze. My computer would not boot, and at first, I could not figure out what was wrong. Then I opened my computer case...

    What I discovered was shocking.
    More for tidiness than performance., (What's this?) I think there is a misconception for a lot of the general public when they hear about water cooling they begin to think it's the ultimate cooling solution. Sure water cooling can produce better results than air cooling, but that requires a much bigger system than this little thing. Heck this unit doesn't even cool as well as some cheaper air coolers. So this is why I say it isn't made for performance, though it will do alright if you do none to light over clocking. I have my i5 2500K to a fairly light OC of 4ghz and this is keeping my idle temps down to 36C and load is around 55C. So it definitely gets the job done, but I think it would fail before my processor hits the wall. The performance can be made slightly better by using two matching 120mm fans to push/pull the air through the radiator. This will help increase the amount of air going through the radiator which in turn increases it's ability to disipate heat though there is only so much you can do with that small of a radiator.

    The installation of the unit is very easy though the instructions have absolutely no text and only pictures. I was so annoyed trying to get the bottom bracket to line up with the holes on the mobo then I realized the screw holes could be slid up and down to custom fit it. That was probably the hardest part since the instructions didn't give any implication that those parts moved, though I did eventually figure that out. The tubing also feels pretty stiff, I was expecting something more like silicone that would be more flexible.
    Cools Like It Say It Cools......., (What's this?) I like it. It's quiet, looks great, and it cools like it says. I'm running an intel i5 2500k OC at 4.5GHZ and this baby idles at 23c and 61c full load. I have this baby on the first fan speed setting not even the 2nd or third, and it still runs cool and quiet. I think my new DF-85 case has a lot to do with this also. My DF-85 gas 8 cooling fans, so that helps a great deal. I'll post some photos Later to show how it fits and looks.
    Fantastic, I got one of these for the cooling on my new system build (i7-3960x in a Corsair 650D case). It is far quieter than my previous air-cooled system, and the pump is completely silent. My idle temp is around 33 degrees C, spiking to 51 if I run a huge 3d Max render.
    And the whole system runs cooler, (What's this?) I mounted mine in a Thermaltake Level 10 caseThermaltake Level 10 GT Super Gaming Modular Tower Computer Case VN10001W2N (Black). The case is designed to take liquid cooling systems so no holes or Mods to the case needed. I did have to get longer screws for the way I mounted the radiator. The case design would have you pull out the exhaust fan on the top of the case to mount the radiator, but I mounted this over the case fan and used the coolers fans to mounted under everything. I have a cooler sandwiched between two sets of fans, and my system runs GREAT. Case temperature is only a little above room temp. Fans don't have to spin as hard and noise is reduced also. This is the way to cool your CPU.
    Very nice, significant drop in tempurature, I ordered this from New Egg last week, but it's $12 cheaper here.

    Out of the box I was very impressed. The quality is very good. No bent fins or any other problems.

    The setup wasn't too bad.
    H100 - No Exception to Corsair Quality, PSUs, speakers, keyboards, etc. - Corsair is solid.

    I bought the H100 as a bit of a splurge. Didn't need it but do run my 2600k overclocked currently at 4.5ghz, stable on stock air. I'm going to see what this bad boy can do. I hear you can get up to 5.0ghz with the 2600k stable. Currently running at 4.5ghz between 11c (51f) idle and 43c (109f) under load.

    The H100 is nice quality from Corsair, which has been my general experience with all Corsair products so far (PSU, Speakers, Keyboards).

    The install manual was completely graphical. Make sure you check it out thoroughly before installation. Look over the parts closely so that you understand each step involved in the installation process. I didn't quite do this and was scratching my head a couple times for a few minutes.

    Installation of the H100 was fairly easy. I installed in a Corsair Carbide Series 400R chassis. I had concerns for the fit due to proximity of the motherboard. The 400R chassis has the dual fan vents on the top of the chassis so securing the radiator was a snap. I installed the fans on the radiator first before screwing the radiator/fan unit to the chassis. Plan where you want the fan power leads to be located before randomly attaching the fans to the radiator. I had concern regarding the length of the screws for the fans. They're supposed to screw into the radiator fins and do not come into contact with the circulation tubes. Be gentle when tightening and don't over torque.

    The top power lead on my Asus P8Z68 Deluxe mobo was compressed against one of the fans. It was an extremely tight fit only due to this positioning of the plug. I could have modded the fan by dremeling out perhaps a quarter inch. I could have also mounted the radiator/fan unit over a quarter inch to give room, by drilling holes or mounting in the 140mm mount holes instead of the 120mm on the top of the 400R. It worked out alright just by being careful not to bend but be firm/gentle enough to position the board to secure to the chassis without bending the power lead/mount.

    Yes, you will need to remove your motherboard to mount the CPU bracket. Mounting the CPU bracket to the mobo was straight forward. I mounted on an Intel i7 2600K Socket 1155. It mounts to many different socket types that I'll include in some quick specs at the end. Be careful to firmly finger tighten and not over torque. It comes with an AMD bracket that you can swap for the stock installed Intel bracket.

    The two 120mm fans, that you mount to the radiator, plug into the CPU cooler itself, right beside the power lead that comes out of the H100. There are four plugs to accomodate four fans if you want to plug more than the stock two into the H100.
    Best Way to cool PC, (What's this?) installing was bit of a hassle.. my first one actually had smoke comming out of it... the replacement worked well.. my pc never went over 40C overclocking.. i would reccomend using this with artic silver and the two step cleaner for MAX results.. always keep it on setting 3...
    ABSOLUTELY THE BEST!, (What's this?)
    working, (What's this?)

  • FEP tubing provides extraordinarily low coolant evaporation levels.
  • Push-button fan control so you can select the fan speed and cooling performance that best suits your needs.
  • Dual length 240mm radiator for increased surface area and cooling potential.
  • Two all-new 120mm fans optimize static pressure and airflow for amazing performance.
  • A new improved micro-channel cold-plate design more efficiently transfers heat.

    Brought a old PC to life, (What's this?) This stick installed with ease in my eMachines W3653. Just popped it in slot 0, and it was off to the races. It's true, Kingston RAM is cheap and reliable. Big thumbs ups.
    It works perfectly, (What's this?) I installed this memory and the pc recognize this imnmediatly.
    Great Speed!, (What's this?) Just what I needed to greatly improve my speed. What a difference! Quality product, great price. Don't know why I waited so long. Can't go wrong with Amazon.
    Bought this for new pc build, (What's this?) I will be using this for a normal computer setup, nothing fancy. I am creating a computer for my dad and decided to buy this ram because of the quality from the brand. Kingston in my opinion is one of the top 5 producers of ram. The price was very cheap for 1gb ram, I know its not the best for a poweful pc but I am building a decent computer for browsing the internet for my dad.

    Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB SATA III 7200 RPM 64 MB Cache Internal Desktop Hard Drive Bulk/OEM - WD1002FAEX Great Drive for a Great Price!

    WD Caviar Black, (What's this?) Have had the HDD in service for around a month now with no apparent problems. The 64 MB buffer seems to have sped up the seek time somewhat. Had previouly bought one of the same model 6 months earlier and liked it. My one complaint would be the way it was packaged for shipping. I have seen this same complaint from others. I felt it was poorly packaged but luckily it arrived undamaged.
    good item, (What's this?) This hard drive writes data twice as quickly as my last one and it seems to be reliable so far. It also came quickly and the seller was good.
    Great Drive for a Great Price!, (What's this?) Works perfectly. I wouldn't say it's the fastest drive on the market but for what it is it gets the job done.
    Very Impressed So Far, (What's this?) I purchased this drive a month ago and installed it in a SANS metal drive enclosure with an eSata connection to my laptop. When transferring large files, I see a consistent 100MBs which is quite fast for a non SDD. The drive is extremely quiet. I also highy recommend the follow enclosure for it: SANS DIGITAL MS1UTP 3.5" USB 3.0 & eSATA Drive Enclosure.
    Great but New Price is Shocking, (What's this?) This Hard Drive worked just as advertised. I've had the drive for a year almost. It was surprisingly quiet, comparing it to the defacto Seagate 320GB Hard Drive I had inside my HP Elitebook before I swapped it eventually with the Vertex 3 Max IOPs Edition SSD. The Drive can get louder over time as more space is occupied; I noticed a sound hike when the drive was beyond 80% of its capacity. Overall, I would recommend it.

    However, the new price for it is kind of shocking; I bought it at Amazon for $149.99. Now I see it over $219, almost close to the price of the 3TB Hard Drive.. Because of that, I would wait till that inflation goes down; otherwise at its original price of $150 dollars, I see it as a solid buy....
    Great Drive, (What's this?) Purchased this drive because my old Raptor drives are almost full. I do a lot of audio recording for music and play a lot of games (SWTOR HOW I LOVE THEE!) and the drive works great. Access is fast and moving large files is a breeze. Packaging came as expected in an OEM drive. Came in a anti-static bag and cardboard edges to keep the drive from bouncing around.

    The noise level of the drive is probably louder than some of the "greener" drives but really, my rig has a huge graphics card and fans to keep everything cool so I can't say the drive is loud as my rig is pretty noisy anyway. For those with water cooled systems, this may be an issue.

    Definately would buy from Amazon again, this drive was far less than other sites, Brick & mortar included.
    I have 6 of them, I keep buying these drives because they are so good. I am an advanced user and I go through a lot of drives. A year or so ago I decided to spend more $$$/GB to get better drives even though they may not be as large. These drives are noticeably faster than typical consumer drives and seem to last a lot longer. Since I use my drives a lot, thrashing them sometimes, the consumer ones just fail within a year. These dont. I have 6 in my case now, looking for 2 more and switching to a 6-drive RAID setup.
    The new benchmark for me, (What's this?) I'm very happy and confident using the WD drives. I've noticed a decreased boot time since upgrading to this drive as well. My previous HD was the 1TB WD Caviar Green drive.
    Awesome, (What's this?)
    So far so good..., (What's this?) I bought got this HD a week ago. I bought it for my first custom computer build. I have had no problems with it yet. It goes nicely with my Intel I7 2600k and Asus P8P67 Pro MOBO. I might try an SSD next, but this was the best bang for the buck for me.

    Seagate Momentus 7200 750 GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 16 MB Cache 2.5 Inch Internal Notebook Hard Drive -Bare Drive ST9750420AS Grear drive at a GREAT PRICE.

    works, (What's this?) works fine. crashed early on for some reason but I reinstalled the operating system and now it seems to be running ok.
    Mine works pefect, I'm seeing a lot of mixed reviews here, so I just thought I would add my input. I got one of these about a year ago. I got the 500 GB, and came back today to look at the 750GB because I liked it so much. I've loved the drive. Fast, and easy to move my data off the other drive. No problems, no noises. Just works, and works fast!

    I've did some basic testing, but I forgot the numbers and don't have them anymore. But I had the non-XT version of the drive before and did some comparisons. Even after just the first boot or two, it was faster. Word, Picasa, profile switching, Eclipse, VMWare ... all seem to work faster. It's a pleasure to use this machine that my wife mostly uses now. (I got the company laptop myself)

    I recommend the drive highly, almost want to buy one for my work machine. It's nice to have the capacity, speed, and low price.

    Maybe I got lucky or something, but it think it's worth the chance. But as always, be sure to backup your data. I've got tonz of photos on my computer, and I make sure they are backed up to an external drive every now and then. (And I don't clear them off our camera until they are).
    Grear drive at a GREAT PRICE., (What's this?) I had been looking for a 320GB drive with 7200RPM at a good price but to no avail.
    3 months later and it's busted, (What's this?) Installed this in a friends laptop as an upgrade and now they're bringing it back to me a few months later because it's locking up and running slow. Ran some tests and the drive is riddled with bad sectors and seeks constantly. I'll have to replace it again but I won't be buying Seagate this time.
    Works great, (What's this?) I got 2 of these hard drives and have them in an external firewire 800 raid that works both with my Mac OS Lion and Windows 7 setups. I have used them in both raid 1 and raid 0. So far no clicking or other odd problems.
    Mix review, (What's this?)
    Excellent Purchase, (What's this?) Fast Delivery. Fantastic packaging. Worked perfect out of the box. This was a purchase to replace the Toshiba (160Gig 5400RPM)factory hard drive that crashed. I was quoted $320 to fix at local computer shop. Took me 3 minutes to install the HD, so I saved $240 by doing it myself. There is a big big difference in the speed also. Everything loads at least 2X as fast. Start up is less then 5 seconds. Very quite. There are no overheating problems either. I am running it on a Dual Core Processor with Vista Business. 90% of applications are High Graphics (CAD,CFD,Photoshop,Corel) and not once has it even thought about locking up. I read several bad reviews about this product but went with it anyways because of the price. There is nothing I can say negative about this HD. I was looking at the Momentus XT as a replacement, but couldn't justify the 2X price for a laptop that I use as a spare. I would purchase another one of these if I needed it.
    DOA, (What's this?) Not a robust drive.
    Bought it a couple months ago and didn't get around to installing it until now.
    (i.e. after 30 day return period)
    Once installed received nothing but annoying beeping coming from the hard drive.
    Took the drive and laptop to a local computer tech.
    He confirmed it's dead Jim.
    750GB drive failed within two weeks, (What's this?) Before I get into specifics, this caution - note the date and model on this (and other) Seagate internal hard drive reviews. Amazon lumps together drives of differing technology, size, and generation into one review pile. Look for the reviews that actually apply to the drive you're considering.

    Even though I read multiple reviews warning that this 750GB drive is prone to failure, I'm an optimist so I bought one anyway. About two weeks later, my computer crashed with a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) which turned out to be due to a bad sector that had developed in a critical system file.
    Failed after about a year of solid everyday use..., This review is for the 320GB version of the HD which I used as a replacement in my MacBook Pro 1,1 laptop because I wanted to upgrade the OS to Snow Leopard and the original HD was not big enough at 100GB. At first the drive worked great, it was a noticeably faster and much more quiet than the original HD that came with the Mac Book Pro. Similarly with the new HD I noticed that my MacBook still can get quite hot during prolonged periods of use just like with the old HD that came with the MacBook.

    After about a year of solid everyday use (several hours for school work and several more hours watching TV programming on Hulu and Amazon) my Mac Book began to have slower, and even more slower boot up times until eventually the it would no longer boot at all. I was able to temporarily fix the problem by erasing the HD and re-installing the Snow Leopard OS, however the same problem began to occur after about two months of use with the same final result of the Mac Book no longer being able to boot up on its own.
