5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory

Pros: Absolutely no issues with this product. I bought this along with a motherboard and processor to upgrade my system core and had 0 issues with any of the parts. Worked right out of the box, no tuning required.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I picked this up for $39.99 while it was on sale. Fantastic deal.

5 out of 5 eggsGood buy

Pros: I've been getting great performance out of these modules. I've had them for around 6 months now, and have no complaints. Overclocked them a few weeks ago and got a noticeable FPS increase in Battlefield 3/DayZ (around 10-15fps in DayZ).

Not to mention the heat-sink on these chips look fantastic.

Would recommend to anyone looking for a memory upgrade.

Cons: The price is slightly high, I think it would be a better value at $69.99, but that's just the haggler in me.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate

Pros: I made a review not too long ago on the 25th of the first month. I'm here to say that the RAM is still doing great after nearly a month of use. I've been playing games like Planetside 2, Minecraft(tons of mods), and Mount & Blade:Warband(up to 2,000 reckless AI fighting at the same time) and I've yet to see any hitches. I've made only minor fixes to my PC but plan on keeping this RAM for as long as I can.

Cons: The price is a bit high but it's all worth it. Look for sales or buy combos.

Other Thoughts: Just thought this product didn't have enough reviews as it deserves to be more popular. Will be buying another set to make 16GB in the next week or so. Should see how the next kit performs

5 out of 5 eggsSolid, Works

Pros: Just snagged these, had to build myself a new computer. They work great. Haven't OC'd or played any super demanding games, but I'm not too worried.

Cons: Only if you wanted different colors? I like the black though.

5 out of 5 eggsEverything good RAM needs.

Pros: First of, just look at it. The heat spreaders did influence me a little
more to buy them, but it looks just as good as it performs. I've done all that testing and thoroughly tested my set and everything is running awesomely. I've had a G.Skill 2x8GB 1600 set in my last rig and I feel like these run better; everything is nice a fast and I feel like this RAM has something to do with it. Can't go wrong.

Cons: None that I can see. I haven't tried OC'ing but all tests prove worthy.

Other Thoughts: I got it on sale for $40.00 which is an incredible steal. This RAM is worth every penny. If it drops on sale again I'll be grabbing another set to make 16GB.
My build:
i5-3570K @StockSpeeds
Kingston HyperX Beast 2x8GB 1600
EVGA GTX 660 TI FTW 2GB version
OCZ ModxStream Pro 600w PSU
WD Blue 500GB HDD 7200RPM

Overall a must buy if you want performance, quality, and sexiness.
