5 out of 5 eggsFast and Cool

Pros: - Fast
- Cool
- XMP Profile for 1600Mghz

Cons: - Fan is Loud

Other Thoughts: I don't use the XMP profile, I've heard some people run into issues. As with most ram, don't forget to increase the speed up to its rated 1600 in the BIOS. The fan is a bit loud when on full blast, but that is to be expected (small fans @ high RPM's will be loud.) Still, can't deduct an egg. The ram runs cool enough to run the fan's at 50% RPM and not even notice they're there. I do wish the RAM had tighter timings though.

5 out of 5 eggsFast

Pros: The ram is fast,all four sticks worked straight out of the box.They will work on an 1156 or 1155 board and this ram is already overclocked.Frequecy 8-8-8-24 not overclocked is 9-9-9-24 so essentially you could overclock further.They run extremely cool at stock speed especially with the fans hooked up.

Cons: none-not free.

Other Thoughts: This ram is actually great for gaming Crysis,Crysis Warhead,Crysis 2,Dragon age origins,Metro 2033,so basically there is not a game out yet that you could not play while using these as your ram.

4 out of 5 eggsFAST!

Pros: VERY VERY FAST! DDR3 1600 speeds, and low low CL timings of 8-8-8-24. Works great in my new system

Cons: Had a stick bite the dust on me within the first 2 weeks, so I had to RMA it. My replacement works fine, but I was avoiding gaming until I got the replacement stick seeing as I don't use a page file. Petty gripe, I know, but RMA'ing memory is becoming all too routine these days.

Other Thoughts: Comes with a nice fan, which takes a little figuring out to mount. Apparently you can swap the heatsinks along the top, but I've never seen anyplace that sells replacements.

4 out of 5 eggsgood but not worth it

Pros: This ram is very good. i mean you could probably oc it to 2000 if you wanted to; but i'm not sure how safe it'd be for i7's this would prolly make good ram for a q6600 (this set that is). any "quad" channel would do for lower end cpus

Cons: this ram WILL NOT run at a tri channel; i.e. it's only 4 sticks. 8 gigs is nice but if you try to even OC them to a higher freq. it'll be just having dead heat dissipate in your rig. DO NOT BUY if you got an i3/5/7. no such thing as a quad channel--yet.

Other Thoughts: i could buy 2 more of these sticks to make a dual tri channel, but it won't be "accurate" and timings would be a bit off.

5 out of 5 eggsCool.. be coool.

Pros: Fan+heatsink=coool memory

Personally I've never lost memory to overheating but why start now. The fans run quietly and just plain looks cool.

Cons: Maybe I just have big/clumsy hand but I found it was annoying to connect all the pieces of the fan (to itself). I kept dropping the washers while trying to get the screws in. Once I got it put together though it attached to the ram easily enough.

Other Thoughts: wish the fan mount came pre-assembled.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: This is the first time I have purchased a memory kit with an airflow fan and I am glad I did. My rig is by no means limited by this piece of hardware!

Cons: The airflow fan was a tight fit next to my cpu heatsink. I would advise looking up the physical specs of your hardware to make sure everything will fit.

Other Thoughts: I wish this memory ran at a little higher of a frequency but that is the sacrifice you have to make when you get eight Gb of ram.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Ram for the Price

Pros: Reliable ram without any problems. The fan attaches nicely.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A gamer may want DDR3 2000 instead of 1600.
