5 out of 5 eggsOutstanding

Pros: Works on an older AsRock P55 USB3/PRO Board.
Cool grey color.
XMP works.
Very stable so far when under-clocked!
Nothing wrong with 'em.

Cons: This is my own issue, so no eggs deducted, but I have an i7-870, which only supports up to 1333 ram. See Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: I did try the XMP profile on my board, and it did set the ram to 1600 + correct timings, but because I added this set to another set that was different, I went and put it back to 1333 9-9-9-24.
Since I have an astounding 12GB now, I use 8 of it purely for a RAMdisk. :)
BTW, here's my system that I've spent a good 2 years on. (I don't have a job yet, I'm just a kid!)
AsRock P55 USB3/Pro
Intel Core i7-870 @ 2.93ghz
2x Kingston HyperX Blu 1333
+This ram I've reviewed! :D
(Overall, 12GB 1333 9-9-9-24)
Antec Earthwatts 500D Green
Nvidia GeForce GTX660 2GB
4 old SATA HDDs (about 500GB overall)
Apevia X-Discovery-BK

I probably have about 500 bucks thrown into this thing. It's my pride an' joy. :p

5 out of 5 eggsGo Grey, not Green!

Pros: Always reliable. Set XMP profile in Bios and forget. Have 3 custom systems with Grey in them. I have tried others, but they all always seem to fail, but I have never had a Kingston memory stick fail, ever. I have used their memory product for the past 15 years and can say while others have failed, Kingston always, always pulls through with reliability and speed. I have had power outages and brown outs that have killed other memory, but not a single Kingston has been affected by these happenings. They can run 1T all day long at listed timings, but the important part is reliability. You get what you pay for.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I now use no other.

Pros: Fast, stable, trusted, and good looking.

They have been in my system for 10 months functioning perfectly.

5 out of 5 eggsUsual Kingston reliability

Pros: Have been using this memory for 2-3 months now with zero problems. Performance has been great, with rock solid stability.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kingston memory to anyone, have been using their memory in my systems for around 14 years. I have never had a problem with it, be it DDR3, DDR2, DDR, or plain old SDRAM.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Set. Must change settings in BIOS for 1600

Pros: Really great reliable RAM. Very cool looking with fly heatspreaders. Error free operation after a year. Really fast even though I ran it at 1333 MHz for a few months until I realized how it needed to run at 1600@9-9-9-27. Read Other Thoughts.

Cons: No instructions on how to change to 1600 in documentation.

Other Thoughts: Because this RAM is Intel XMP (eXtreme Memory Profile) compatible and my motherboard (Gigabyte Z68X-UD3H-B3) is also XMP compatible, make sure your motherboard BIOS is set so that XMP is Profile1. All modern motherboard BIOS should support this feature. This is usually in the tweaker/overclock/memory section in the BIOS. Unless you don't a XMP compatible motherboard, DO NOT SET MEMORY TO 1600 MANUALLY. The XMP will take care of the proper frequency and timing for you.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat memory

Pros: The heat sinks do not interfere with my small case.
8gb is a worth while upgrade!
Kingston supports eSports

Cons: Great memory! (ie, none)

Other Thoughts: Memory is simple, just get the one that is in your price range ;)

BUT REMEMBER KINGSTON SUPPORTS eSports and Starcraft. Thats why I bought from kingston.

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: Great buy, as is most of Kingstons products. Got it with the ASRock Extreme 3 Gen 3 combo, (amazing MOBO if you're looking for a new one) and am now ordering a second set for 16GB.

Cons: As said earlier, MOBO recognized it at 1333 at first, had to change it to 1600. Not a big enough issue to drop an egg though.
