5 out of 5 eggsLiked it so much, I bought it twice.

Pros: Snappy, hassle-free, durable RAM.
Very low profile. (The DIMM slot dust covers from my mobo are almost twice as tall.)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Had to change it to run at 1600 in the BIOS on my Asus Sabertooth z77. Otherwise defaults to 1333.
Originally built my system with 8gb (2x4gb) two years ago. Originally picked these because I feared a clearance issue with my Cooler Master V8. Turned out to be a non-issue, but discovering these quality sticks was a happy mistake. Barring some sort of fiasco in the future, Crucial has a customer for life. Never had a problem with them in a rig primarily used for heavy gaming.
Just bought another 8gb because i wanted to have the DIMM slots populated with matching RAM before DDR4 makes it hard to get these. Definately more of a want than need purchase. 8gb is fine for current games. Someday I may get around to some light video editing... lol

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate to 'Great performance at 1333'

Pros: Previously, I indicated that this memory would run at 1333 in my Socket 775 GA-P45T-ES3G motherboard, but not at 1600. I have since installed a XEON E5450 (Socket 771 Mod) and upgraded the BIOS microcode for the 'new' processor. Now, this memory runs great at 1600 (CPU @ 3.6 GHz). Memory timings are auto-detected at 8-8-8-24 as spec'd.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Work great even after 2 years of heavy use.
Low profile design good for aftermarket CPU cooler clearance

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought these a couple years ago because I feared a clearance issue with the Cooler Master V8 that I couldn't live without at the time. Turns out, a had a country mile of ram clearance space, so I could have gone with a different style, but the fact that these have been sturdy performers for as long as I have been abusing them gives me no reason to wake up in a cold sweat sobbing with regret.

5 out of 5 eggsYes

Pros: Get a good mobo and you will be able to overclock the hell out of these. Low cost, Low volt, highly tweakable.
easiest build I have ever done.

Cons: No so far after burn-in.

Other Thoughts: GigaByte Z97-D3H v1.1 F8 Bios
G3258 @4.3 1.2v
Corsair HX520
Antec300
Was waiting to pull trigger on a new machine and noticed that most people having trouble with OCing RAM have an inexpensive mobo in general. I spent a little extra money and this has allowed me to get great results with the RAM and CPU. Here is what I have done with this RAM:
8-8-8-24 2T 1600 1.35v
9-9-9-27 2T 2133 1.5v
7-7-7-21 2T 1600 1.5v
All stable using multiple bench and burn-in suites.
I liked the 7-7-7-21 with the processor @4.3 with 1.2v

4 out of 5 eggsGreat performance at 1333

Pros: Gigabyte GA-P45T-ES3G P45 Socket 775 motherboard works great when BIOS Set to XMP Profile 2 (1.5V) and FSB 333 (DDR3-1333). Memory timings are automatically set at 7-8-8-24 @666 (verified by CPUID, Prime stable).

Cons: Have not been able to get this RAM to work at FSB 400 (DDR3-1600). No matter what I try (all combinations of manual and automatic BIOS memory settings), system will not boot with FSB 400 (memory @800).

Other Thoughts: For now, I'm content to run my system at FSB 333 (memory at 666, 7-8-8-24) but would like to run at FSB 400 (memory at 800, 8-8-8-24). Any suggestions?

5 out of 5 eggsUndervolted and speedy

Pros: I bought these for a possible mini-ITX mobile computing solution. The low voltage and high speed gave me the possible head room needed to under volt...see below.

Also much smaller than they look. Definitely a plus if you have a monster heat sink.

They don't get hot at all. I am not sure if the heat spreader was added for looks and resale purposes. Even at 1.35v they were only warm to the touch. Passes memtest at 1.30v.

Cons: Heat spreader may be just for looks. Mine do not get hot at all, with no case fans...

Other Thoughts: In the Antec ISK100 case there is only 1 fan, the CPU fan. These heat spreaders are probably just to add bulk and dimension. They really are the smallest I have seen.

I have not tried to overclock these. I am sure 90% of buyers are going that route, with which I am no help this time. I was able to drop down to 1.30v. at 1.29v memtest would throw errors. Even when I widened the gap massively to 11-11-11, 2T and dropped it down to 1033, I could only get down to 1.27v. I suspect the IC needs a preset voltage to keep the memory charged.

it may have been possible to under volt significantly with just 1 DIMM, but there is memory out there already rated for 1.25V.

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied

Pros: My ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 motherboard immediately recognized the XMP profile at 1.35v / 1600. I removed my old AData XPG CAS9 ram before getting started. Windows 7 x64 rating for memory jumped from 5.9 to 7.1 No difficulties snapping RAM into their slots.

Cons: None
