5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade

Pros: I purchades this set as an upgrade from my 6 gig Dominator set. It works perfect. Got it running at my 6 Gig settings with no problems. 9-10-9-27-110 1T, @2080 mhz. Needed to lower my Uncore, and give them 1.67 dimm voltage, and all is good.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsDurable

Pros: + Included cooler and headspreaders
+ Great value
+ Holds up at high OC and maintains decent latency.

Cons: - If attaching aftermarket coolers (ie liquid cooling), removing the heatspreaders would be an arduous task.
- Sharp. Careful when pushing them into place, you can cut yourself if you are not careful.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this kit to add to my existing system to replace an DDR3-1600 XMS kit that I had that just wouldn't hold up in some tough OCs. This kit is a great value, passed memtest right out of the box at stock and several different OCs.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet

Pros: Absolutely rock solid. No issues since buying 12/2010. Asus Rampage III Extreme. Been 2 years, and I play a little with ROG. Not much of an O. Extra cooling come in handy. Need to learn more to get into XMP mode.

Cons: Only problem except price in 2010 is XMP mode. Crashes every time. I have researched but couldn't find compatible settings.

Other Thoughts: Actually I want to buy 12 more gig but already have far to much in this box. 2 XFX 6870 black edition video cards.

5 out of 5 eggsRampage III Extreme Compatible!

Pros: Compatible with my Asus Rampage III motherboard. The Rampage III Extreme is pretty picky about memory (in fact, I think that's an issue with x58 chipsets in general). This wasn't on any HCL for my mobo, and I couldn't find anything conclusive about whether or not this memory would work on google so I just decided to take a chance. The memory works and works quite well.

Cons: Unfortunately this memory is quite affordable for the quality and performance it gives. So for those looking to show off by buying overpriced parts, this probably isn't for you.

Other Thoughts: At first my system wouldn't post... I replaced 12 gigs of memory (but with 6 dimms) with just this memory so I could upgrade to 24GB in the future. At first it seemed this memory wasn't compatible, but what I found is that all 3 red dimm slots need to be populated before the black slots work. I put this new memory into the red slots, and everything worked. Currently, I have this new memory populating the 3 black slots (12GB) and the old memory populating the 3 red slots (6GB) for a total of 18GB.

This quirk with the slots seemed too be consistent to be an actual bug so I checked in the manual and confirmed this is the expected/intended behavior of the board.

I'm not doing anything crazy with this memory, I'm just running it at 1333 mhz with an i7 980x. With that in mind, the memory seems to be perfectly stable with the Rampage III Extreme.

5 out of 5 eggsEwwwwwwwwwwww

Pros: Fast. Really Fast. Really Really Fast. Super Reliable

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: There may be other sticks that are faster now, but they aren't as reliable. I've had zero issues with these babies.

5 out of 5 eggsNothing short of Awesome

Pros: -Great responsive Ram - @ 2000 MHz-
-Decently priced.
- Good extra fans to go on top
- Ram isn't flimsy - has protection

Cons: None so far - maybe the price for some- but like the old saying goes - you want nice things you pay for it -

Other Thoughts: I will be looking into the future- for 2x 16g - too bad i haven't seen it yet made by Corsair - maybe soon.

5 out of 5 eggsvery nice ram

Pros: Runs very nice, have 12Gb now and just ordered the other 12GB which is cheaper now than when i bought it in oct2011. XMP profile works for me, runs with listed specs 9-11-9-27 xmp-2000....i use the asus rampage black ed. mb w/I7 980 at 3.4Ghz. The fan cooler works good to no problems with that, now what to do with the other fan coming with the 2nd set i ordered. wondering if i can get two fan modules above the ram lol

Cons: none really

Other Thoughts: glad its cheaper now, was really expensive when i bought the first set....
