5 out of 5 eggs  Highly recommended

Pros: Very low profile, which helps when using a bulky heat sink. Although even if you aren't using a large air cooler (like myself) I still think it is nice having low profile memory.

Cons: They may be a little difficult to install, but that may have just been my motherboard. But it wasn't too hard.

Other Thoughts: Very good memory

5 out of 5 eggsSexy

Pros: These modules perform well and look good doing it (and not in a flashy, obnoxious way).
You'll never have to worry about CPU cooler clearance with these.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Been working 1 month straight as a Teamspeak 3 and Minecraft Bukkit Server. 24/7 up time with a 90% Idle usage.

Cons: Non So Far.

Other Thoughts: Low Profile are nice with my Hyper 212 Evo.

5 out of 5 eggsTiny but Agile

Pros: I was shocked at how small these sticks were when they arrived. They are almost LEVEL with the top of the slot on my motherboard. Perfect for an ITX build, as they'll allow me to use a larger heatsink that can stick overtop of them.

Not only are they small, but they're fast, and out-perform a lot of larger 1866 models.

Cons: None really. With Crucial you know what you're getting, and it's always great.

Intel of memory, in my experience.

Other Thoughts: Get them?

These sticks are awesome and shockingly small. They aren't kidding when they say Very Low Profile...

5 out of 5 eggsBest choice for just about any build

Pros: Lower voltage.
Lower profile.
Lower latency.
Crucial is Micron's own consumer brand, so you know exactly what kind of quality memory components are on every DIMM PCB.

Cons: None.

Except the collaborative greed of the memory manufacturers capitalizing on an intangible "incident" in the packaging department at one factory and using it as an excuse to raise prices on every brand and model memory, then claiming that it's because they are busy making DDR4 RAM (yeah, right :rolleyes) - Still kicking myself for not getting another set or two last year when they were on sale for $80 each.

Other Thoughts: Purchased about a year ago when I transitioned to a microATX form factor for my LGA1155 Ivy Bridge system.

Worried about your large heat sink and fan blocking some memory slots? No problem! These modules are so low profile that they are barely taller than the very DIMM sockets they are being installed in.

5 out of 5 eggsTHE BEST RAM TO BUY!

Pros: I usually take ram for granted, but this I have wild enthusiasm for this particular ram.

* 1.35v, runs cooler than most ram
* VLP: very low profile is perfect for tiniest cases like SG05. I would have had great difficulty fitting my low profile CPU cooler without this low profile feature.

* overclock This ram overclocks surprisingly well.

I was lucky to find a review of this ram complete with a chart showing exactly what timings and speeds this ram could overclock to. It worked perfectly!
Running: 1.5 volt, 9/10/10/27 @ 1866.
Got me about a 4% gain in games, which is the same benefit I got from overclocking my video card. It doesn't sound like much but it was enough to get me into the top 1% of 3dmark firestorm scores posted with my GPU/CPU combination.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: A best buy

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Little Guys!

Pros: Low Profile
Low Voltage (1.3V)
FAST!!!
They look great, too!
Also, I bought mine for $119.99 on November 29, 2013. Glad I did!

Cons: I have nothing bad to say about the RAM. High prices are always a con, but as of this posting, RAM prices are up everywhere. I blame these current high prices on pigeons! That's right! Pigeons! Gotta blame it on something. Might as well be pigeons. :P

Other Thoughts: I am using this RAM with the following components;

CPU - i7-4771
Motherboard - ASUS Z87-Pro (V Edition)
Hard Drive - Samsung 840 128GB SSD
PSU - Seasonic 660W Platinum Series

I am currently using an older GPU and case. I will soon purchase a new GPU and case.

Just get this RAM! You'll be happy. Promise!

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: * Low Profile fits under cooler master for cpu humongous cooler which regular sticks I could not remove the first stick! BIG BIG PLUS HERE

*Lower Voltage (Usually means higher speced ram that is branded with the premium sellers.

*No Crashes what so ever. Running it in a mining rig 24/7 100% balls to the walls usage and it is not erroring out.

* 8 Gig per Stick sets me up for the future for upgrades as 2 slots are empty.

I remember when 16 gigs of ram was 300-400 dollars. I am getting old.

Cons: Did not come with a rebate! Thats all I can think of.
