5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: This memory has been working great in my system for over two years. I run it on the stock speeds and am satisfied. The software is nice for controlling the LEDs.

Cons: Overclocking them will take some time. I have not spent enough time to find the best setting for my system.

Other Thoughts: Other system specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5-2500k @ 4.0 GHz
GPU: MSI Radeon HD 7850 tTwin Frozr III
MB: ASRock Z77 Extreme 4
Monitor: Dell U2711 at 2560x1440

5 out of 5 eggsGood Memory

Pros: Bought this memory to upgrade my system from 4gigs to 8gigs. Put the memory in and it worked without hassle with all bios memory settings set to Auto.

Cons: No cons that I can think of. The memory works.

Other Thoughts: This memory was put in an ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherboard. This memory wasnt bought for the lights. It was bought because of the number of good reviews that other Neweggers wrote about it. In case your wondering though, yes the lights work.

5 out of 5 eggsTactical Tracers

Pros: -LED's. If you have a windowed case, these make your rig look great!
-Crucial's support program allows you to change between the 2 colors, as well as brightness, and pattern. I personally enjoy stereo mode. The intensity and rapidness of the lights are dependant on how much the system is utilizing the ram.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought the 2x 4gb kit in blue/orange, 1600 @ cas 8.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Fast memory. Pretty led lights. Love the software. Easy install. received on time and undamaged. Overclocks fairly well.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I also have a red/green set also on my motherboard. I must say that it makes for an interesting light show. The software is great. It works well with my asus amd 990fx r2 gen3 mobo. No issues. Memory is currently running around 1900mhz coupled with an amd fx 9590 running @ 5.1ghz. Love the memory. Would buy again. Good job Crucial.

2 out of 5 eggs  

Pros: Looks great

Cons: Mechanical failure

Other Thoughts: Wife and brother in law built my computer as gift and it was running fine until a couple weeks ago. PC started blue screening and the error code I kept getting was a memory issue error code. Took the tower into a repair shop as my forté is not hardware and was told that one of my ram sticks was bad. I've only had the computer for about 2 months when this issue occurred. Gave 2 eggs instead of 1 because only 1 of the ram sticks seems to be bad...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Speeds, Great Looks

Pros: A pretty noticeable difference from my previous 1300 ram.
The lights are fantastic and you can change the way they blink and scroll and adjust the brightness or turn them off completely.
For someone with a side panel window, these ram sticks are ideal. I've received more than my fair share of double-takes. My buddies love them and I couldn't recommend them enough.
I've monitored the temperatures a bit and the heat spreaders do a fantastic job keeping these down.

Cons: They were a bit hard to clip into my ram slot, but they're very snug.

No issues whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: Turn off your computer and unplug it. Hit the power button to remove any reserved power. Remove old ram and install these guys. Once installed, I'd turn on the computer to make sure it boots up, then restart and open the bios to manually adjust your ram detection speed. (Mine defaulted to 1300),

so I booted up and Now I'm Ordering Another 8Gigs :)

4 out of 5 eggsgreat memory

Pros: works great, had two kits of this running battlefield 4 and it was smooth as could be. running only 8gb of it atm and still runs games very well. and of course it looks outstanding in the case, ballistix mod utility is easy to use.

Cons: one kit ended up going bad, gave a lot of blue screens and crashes till i figured it out, crucial has been great with getting an RMA for it though
