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

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory Stick!

Pros: I had a compatibility problem with 2 other different memory sticks, but the Crucial Ballistic Tactical Tracers work like a champ! They also have the led lights that you can turn off or on if you like. They look great if you have a see through panel on your computer.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I wanted

Pros: Fast memory
Cool LED effects
Both sticks passed Memtest 3 times
Customize-able pattern and brightness. Also, settings are persistent across reboots/power cycles
8GB is more than enough RAM for the typical user at this point. Currently 2.3GB used with Chrome(8 tabs), Steam, and a few other programs I have.

Cons: As someone else mentioned, when installing, use caution. The heat spreaders are sticking up, so it gives the impression that if you push too hard, you may pop a heat spreader off.
Other than that, nothing I can think of at this point. Sure, only had them for just over a day, but they passed Memtest without a hitch, and I don't plan on removing them any time soon, so 99% of problems at this point aren't likely.

Other Thoughts: Bios picked them up right away and all settings were correct. Inherent OC due to CPU OC, but 15% isn't much- wasn't enough to need to tweak voltage.
Blue goes well with the blue/purple case scheme. Didn't need this, but who does? Makes for excellent eye candy, however. Which is just what I wanted.
MoBo- ASRock 970 Extreme
CPU- AMD 1090T
All other components are irrelevant.
TL;DR- Great product.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing Blue and Orange lighting effects.
Very solid memory, first two sticks still running stong with no problems or errors!
Heat spreaders have a great design and work great at keeping the memory at reasonable temperatures.
Lowering brightness on activity lights doesn't lower running lights as much as it did with the original sticks.
Solid LEDs used as well, the original sticks are just as bright as the new sticks all at same brightness level.

Cons: None other than having your face melted by the brightness the first time you power up ;)

Other Thoughts: I bought two sticks when these first came out and I absolutly loved them. My other two DIMM slots were feeling lonely so when these went on sale I had to buy some more!

Lights are even more mesmorizing with 4 sticks :3

Pros: Orange / Blue Look Great with the Red / Green DDR3 1600 LED Memory. They look Cool in my Power Max side Window Tower w/ front 7 color changing bubble lights & led torch.

5 out of 5 eggsBest RAM I've ever owned

Pros: MSI 990FXA detected this pair as 1333. Set it to 1600 in bios and all is good. My LED's were by default, blue. Bright as the sun and look star treky. The led's move if there is heartbeat on the machine, it the machine freezes, so do the led's. Playing a game and the led's strobe like a rave. So bright they light up the room.

Cons: The package they came in its ultra cheap, ugly.

Other Thoughts: These blue LED, match color brightness and size wise of the LED's on my MSI 990FXA-GD65 mainboard.
