Rear wiper arm & blade set Vauxhall Vectra C Hatch&hellip by Wipex
5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 28 April 2014
Whilst the arm is not quite identical to an original (at least, not on my Vectra) it is a perfect fit. I did need to use a puller to remove the old arm though as it was very tight and I certainly didn't want to break the rear window!

I'm not going to concern myself with reviewing the actual hardware. Suffice it to say that is a very high-end board with more features than you can shake a stick at.

I bought this primarily because of the low profile heat spreaders. I have a Cooler Master Hyper 212 evo Cpu cooler on an Asus Z87 Plus motherboard, and with the fan installed it overshadows the first ram slot. Although I am not using that first slot, having only 8Gb installed, It's clear that it would (just) fit, whereas ram fitted with the more usual large heat spreaders would not. It is XMP enabled ram having one profile: 9-9-9-24. If you are new to (or just inexperienced in) fitting your own ram or ram-upgrades you should note that XMP profiles (enabled from BIOS) are only applicable to complete kits. That is to say, if I wanted to install a further 8Gb of ram AND still be able to… Read more
