5 out of 5 eggsSolid RAM

Pros: Solid RAM. It worked right out of the box: fit perfectly into the slots, and the motherboard recognized it immediately and at the proper speed with no advanced configuration or tweaking needed. I've been running this RAM for around 4 months now with no issues.

Cons: None, really. I've had no problems with it.

Other Thoughts: Before buying this RAM I used the tools at Crucial's website to make sure the RAM was fully compatible with my motherboard selection. Crucial's tool seemed more complete and useful than those I've seen on other RAM manufacturer's websites. They listed it as compatible with my motherboard and it worked correctly right out of the box.

My Setup:

AMD FX 6350 CPU
MSI 970a-G46 Motherboard
nVidia GTX 760 GPU
8 GB (4x2)Crucial Ballistix Sport XT RAM
EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750B 750 watt PSU
Lian Li PC-K7B Case

3 out of 5 eggsWorks, then Dies

Pros: Worked just fine for four months.

Cons: Now it doesn't.

Memory Management BSOD, needs to be replaced.

Other Thoughts: It was fine in the morning, played a lot of Skyrim, went out, came home to play a game of League, and I got multiple blue screens. MEMTEST reported back thousands of errors, and Windows Memory Diagnostic told me that there was a problem with it, and to contact the manufacturer. I hope I can either fix this or get an RMA soon.

1 out of 5 eggsDefective or not compatible

Pros: It's a pretty color

Cons: Either defective or not compatible with the ASRock Fatal1ty 990FX Killer AM3+ motherboard. After reading the reviews I'm pretty sure it's not compatible.

4 out of 5 eggsCatch it on sale

Pros: Big, blingy heat sinks (like most ram of this caliber, it's mostly for aesthetics.

Caught it on sale for 67.99. It is now 84.99 at the time of this review.

It's RAM. It works. Nothing to be too excited about.

Cons: When I first installed it in my MB (ASRock 890FX Deluxe4) it defaulted to DDR3 1333 speeds at 1.65 volts. I had to manually set it to DDR3 1600 at 1.5 volts. May not be the fault of the modules, but something you should be aware of.

Other Thoughts: I find this ram to only be a good value when it's on sale. At it's current price, not so much. For $5 more you can have CAS 7 modules.

1 out of 5 eggssad ram

Pros: none now

Cons: replacement set from new egg this ram simply will not post

Other Thoughts: just do not understand how a replacement is as junk as original

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Decision

Pros: It was a good price at the time.

Cons: RAM worked at advertised speed for a couple weeks then windows 8 started having trouble starting. Did several tests and then my computer refused to POST at all.

My ASUS board has the MemOK button on it so I decided to give it a try and it managed to get my POST screen back, but it would only POST at 1066MHZ and not 1600MHZ anymore. People might say that it just wasn't compatible with my board, but since it worked fine for awhile I doubt that was the case.

Other Thoughts: I RMAed the RAM and got a nice pair of G.Skill and haven't had any issues since then. I'd head the reviews here as I didn't and I ended up on the short end of the stick.

Manufacturer Response:

We're sorry to hear our memory wasn't working for you. Please be sure to contact our support at 1-800-336-8896 next time, we can look at your configuration and determine if there is any know compatibilty issues or BIOS settting that may help. The MemOK can reset the memory settings and default them back to failsafe and then you'll have to reconfigure the BIOS memory options to get full speed or to enable XMP. We fully stand behind all our products and your satisfaction is important to us.

Regards,
Crucial
