5 out of 5 eggsInteresting

Pros: *Great specs for the money.
*Heat Spreaders.
*The Crucial Ballistix MOD utility works!
*Light show in every box.
*LED brightness is adjustable, Big Plus!
Got mine with 10% off Promo Code from Newegg eBlast, so it was a very nice deal.

Cons: Not a true con but needs to be noted.
The heat spreaders on the solder side of each stick (flipside of the ICs) are attached with a dense double-sided foam tape. The issue is if you grab a stick by its top edge, there is a chance this heat spreader will pull away from the PCB!

To be fair to Crucial, the Postal Carrier did not ring our door bell. So the package sat at the side door w/outside temp of 31F for about 5 hours before tracking showed package delivered. This could have easily affected the adhesive, although the RAM kit was at room temp for almost 24 hours before installed.

Still with the potential of the piece falling off and shorting out my GPU, I made darn sure I firmly pressed the spreaders onto each stick and tested. I'll post update if this proves a poor solution.

Other Thoughts: Crucial should take note and revise material specs.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Awesome

Pros: Performance:
Timing 8-8-8-24
Cas Latency 8
Voltage 1.5V
Price: well ddr3 is cheap now everywhere, 2 years ago they would have been over $250
Lifetime Warranty

Cons: None yet - Maybe I should wait awhile before writing reviews (owned 1 month)

Other Thoughts: These sticks really create quite the disco in a box. Never been one to waste bucks on bling, but they are cool, especially thru the fans, like strobe lights. I thought I had pretty decent mem with triple channel Kingston's Hyper-X's (which also look great), but they only ever showed 5.5 on windows 7 performance (only thing that wasn't 7.9) These brought mem score up to 7.9 straight away. 7.9 across the board FINALLY. I just looked at newegg's 1600 triple channel kits again, and it seems to have changed substantially since just a month ago. The cheapest set is $45, whereas a month ago they had quite a few 8-8-8-24, cas 8's that were $27-$40? Glad I didn't order anything else, especially the OCZ 8-8-8-24, cas 8's that were only $27? Really was a coin toss TILL I read all the neg feedbacks, and what has happened to OCZ thru the years (at least their memory division/support). These are now the cheapest 1600, 8-8-8-24, cas 8's that newegg has, and pretty good on the reviewer's meter. Buy these

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Ram

Pros: its fast at 1600=800MHz, got mine OC to 1640=840Mhz, by using FSB, got mine at 240MHz, looks great in my case with black heat shields, got an awesome LED display going on in my case with built in LEDs, The MOD utility can be DL from Crusial website free, LEDs can be changed from Red and Green only, change the moving pattern, and keep an eye on the temp with built in temp sensors, the utility even gives you the choice of putting a widget on the desktop so you an always keep your eye on it with out opening up the app, going to buy one more stick to completly fill all my RAM slots.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: See pros
