Cons: nothing............if u mess with timings,or voltage in bios not set to 1.65 volts then the mod bios tool wont work right(open up,temp sensors-not indicated etc)

5 out of 5 eggsCoolest looking Memory around

Pros: Memory works great. But I love the LEDs. If you are going to build a PC with a clear side panel, these are a must! They really top off a case build out. The flashing LEDs just look cool.

Cons: Expensive

5 out of 5 eggsBlinky Lights!

Pros: This RAM is great. End of story. First off, it's a great overclocker. 1820MHz @ 8-8-8-24-2T. The lights on it really complement the looks of my Antec 1200 as well. You can't really see them in the picture, but there are also blue lights on the bottom of the module for ambiance. The modules also smell good.

Cons: They don't do the dishes. :(

Other Thoughts: These modules are great. They have a ridiculously high OC'ing headroom (I can probably push ~1950MHz @ 9-9-9-24-2T). The lights are also a big plus to aesthetics. The price is also right. Crucial is also part of Micron, so they make their own chips. They have great service too. If you're unsure about what (compatible) RAM to buy, get these. You won't be disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy to set up

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Stuff! You Will Like It!

Pros: High Bandwidth, red green and blue LEDs, DDR3 1600 MHz.

I've been using Ballistix DDR 2 800 MHz memory for some three years now. After the first year, I changed to DDR 2 800 MHz. Ballistix Tracer. Another swap from the "804" chips to "80A" was needed before I had more reliability.

The newer DDR 2 800 Mhz 2.0 volt memory still runs decidedly warmer than the new DDR 3 1600 MHz 1.65 volt memory. I attribute this to not only the lower voltage requirement, but also the longer length of the DDR 3 - which uses the same style heatspreaders (but longer) as the DDR 2 memory.

Now, I installed this 6 GB kit in a new ASUS M4A79XTD EVO AM3 motherboard with a new AMD AM3 Phenom II 955 X4 processor. The motherboard's current factory BIOS must love this stuff as the memory looks like it's trying to communicate. I mean, it appears to be lighting up with happy faces and all kinds of patterns. Okay, that's kind of cute - but the motherboard also supports 1600 MHz to match up well with this.

Cons: You can't replace DDR2 using DDR3 without a replacement DDR3 motherboard, it just won't fit.

The previously falling price of Ballistix DDR 2 has gone up since last spring. This too makes DDR 3 more attractive - so long as it doesn't start taking radical price hikes.

My provided picture doesn't allow you to see the lights as they truly appear with their patterns, and it doesn't show how great this system ran during my tests using some very meager and older hardware. (133 DMA IDE hard drive, ASUS EN7600 Silent nVidia video card. The system litterally flew and ran exceptionally cool - even with the case closed and only three 80mm fans running at the motherboard's "silent" speeds.) My SATA drives are still in shipment, so I haven't been able to see exactly how cool everything will run as yet. But, I know speeds and temperatures will only improve even further.

I guess I could have shown you running test results of the memory. Nope! You can find out how good that is for yourself.

Other Thoughts: I'm sure I could expound on the benefits of going all DDR3 as I did, but what you will visibly see is improved performance of this DDR 3 1600 MHz memory over using a DDR 2 Motherboard (such as the ASUS M4A78-E DDR 2) with DDR 2 Ballistix Tracer 800 MHz memory at 4 4 4 12 timings.

My M4A79XTD EVO "auto" set this DDR 3 memory at 9 9 9 24. Mathematically, that's about the same speed as DDR 2 800 MHz at 4 4 4 12 - but the cooler temperatures I'm seeing at the memory are a big plus. Several other improvments are also apparent, but I'll leave those for you to see for yourself. If you've been using DDR 2 800 Ballistics, you'll enjoy the improvement of using a fully matched AM3 system that can auto set and run this memory at its advertised settings without overclocking. This memory is also QVC listed for the ASUS M4A79XTD EVO motherboard, and I'll just bet it out-performs more expensive ones. Another plus is per GB it is about the same price as DDR2 running at similar factory rated speeds.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Just popped the ram in and everything just worked at the 1066 setting. No problem just went into the bios and set the ram to the xmp profile 1.

Cons: The only con I can think of is some people where reporting that it had a second xmp profile on the ram but mine did not come with it. So take that for what it is worth.

Other Thoughts: EVGA X58 SLI motherboard (vanilla)
