5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No annoyingly oversized heat-spreader, work as advertised.

Cons: Had them for the better part of a year without issue.

Other Thoughts: Not much special to say about RAM. These have good specs at a good price and a reliable brand. Hard to go wrong here.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid RAM

Pros: Works great. XMP detected the profile correctly. I got it when the price was $118.99, and at the time was one of the cheapest 16GB memory sets out there. Great tight timings. Black PCB. Very happy with the purchase.

Cons: Mustard yellow? That doesn't match with anything... good thing it's mostly covered by the tubes of my H100i mounted in the front of my case. Minor details though.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried OC'ing it, so no comments there.

5 out of 5 eggsgood.

Pros: bought 32 gigs of this for a server build about 8 months ago. it's on 24-7 and been pretty good. I did have a stick go bad a month ago, but crucial was great about replacing it. customer service was nice, and once I explained my testing methods, they had no problem doing an rma. it was no problem for me cause I still had 16 gigs in the server while I waited for this.

Cons: a stick went bad.....BUT this is modern times where a company makes a few million sticks of ram. there will be a couple here and there that go bad and I understand that.
that's why I now buy at least 4 sticks, so if one or two go bad, my computers are still working.

Other Thoughts: don't blow a gasket cause something goes bad- especially if the company is very nice and cool bout replacing it.

4 out of 5 eggs1600 **OR** 8 CAS

Pros: Price, fast, maxes out Windows Home Premium (16 GB), heat spreaders

Cons: The ad said 1600 with a CAS latency of 8. Out of the box it looks like it does one or the other. Other RAM in the same price range says 1600 with 10 or sometimes 9 latency. I don't really care; it's fast enough and was a better price at the time.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Specs, Bad Memory

Pros: Specs are CL8.

Cons: Fails in system. Ran memtest 86 even at CL11 it is failing computer keeps failing. This ram was expensive and doesn't work.

Other Thoughts: I am sure if you get modules that work it is fine ram. I have owned this ram for over 30 days and just put it in a system, and the system was not stable.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Thanks you for your feedback. Your system configuration would be helpful so we can determine if it's an incompatibility, need for an update mother BIOS or other setting. Please contact our support at 1-800-336-8896 or online at www.crucial.com/help with your system configuration details and we will assist you any way we can to get the memory working at their rated speed and timings. There will be some BIOS settings that need to be changed, either enabling XMP or manually in order to reach the rated speed and timings.

Regards,
Crucial

2 out of 5 eggsGood... when works

Pros: *Fast
*Good-looking

Cons: *High failure rate

Other Thoughts: From 4 modules that I bought one failed in Memtest x86 in less than a month (originally passed, but later on computer started bluescreening with various memory-related messages and the test allowed to find a culprit). Now the second one failing even more spectacularly. The system with the faulty module in any slot won't even get to the POST messages, it would just keep on rebooting.

No overclocking, manufacturer-specified parameters.

I've never ever had a 50% failure rate for memory and I've assembled a lot of systems both for personal use and at work.

Seriously, Crucial?

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

5 out of 5 eggsVery Fast and Reliable!!!

Pros: First off, even with the heat spreaders on the modules look very sleek, not too big or obtrusive like other heat spreaders and most of all it runs very cool. Installation like always is relatively simple, just pop them and your ready to go. Running @ 1600 Mhz 1.5 volts the modules are pretty fast. Used SiSoftware Sandra Lite to measure available bandwidth with these modules installed. Compared to other RAM with the same speed, the lower CAS timings makes this a better buy. Definitely a very good set for all those that are looking for quality RAM.

Cons: None really. Make sure you fix your timings upon first installation.

Other Thoughts: When installing this for the first time, the UEFI picked this up running @ 1333 Mhz with 9-9-9-27. This is set to the automatic JEDEC specs. Go to the UEFI and change it from JEDEC to XMP and it should change it to 1600 Mhz 8-8-8-24 with the same voltage. XMP ftw!
