4 out of 5 eggsWhat you'd expect

Pros: They work

Cons: Blue Heat sinks

Other Thoughts: I bought these when they were on sale. I don't fancy the heat sinks, so I took them off. They're what you want from RAM: working. Are cool, if you're doing a blue themed build.

1 out of 5 eggsDISSAPOINTED

Pros: Looks pretty cool like the color

Cons: after around 5 months the ram failed on me (which after 5 months should not be happening). Pretty annoyed so I went with g.skill ram instead

5 out of 5 eggsBest deal on memory

Pros: I got this for 127.99. Must have been a promotion or a mistake because it was cheaper per GB than the 32 GB catalog item. So I bought two of the 16GB. First only purchased 16 thinking I could upgrade later, but knowing it is good to match your memory and figuring the price wouldn't last I made a second order for 16 more. Got 32 GB total for less than $256.

Easy install, immediately recognized.

Nice solide heat spreaders

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My build:

CORSAIR RM750 Power Supply
ASUS Z87-PRO Motherboard
Intel Core i7-4771 Processor
Crucial Ballistix Sport XT 32GB (4 x 8GB) Memory
EVGA GeForce GTX 780 3GB Video Card (Superclocked, ACX Cooler, 03G-P4-2784-KR)

5 out of 5 eggsPlug and Play

Pros: Working as intended. Simply took out old ram, inserted this pair and started up my computer. Took me to BIOS screen because it detected the new ram. Set it to 1600 mhz and was good to go. Computers been flying.

Cons: The prices for memory have nearly doubled within a year so I paid $123 with this memory on sale plus a coupon. No knock on the product tho so didnt take any eggs off.

Also the memory is a bit tall for those with limited case space.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Ram

Pros: Cheap
Looks cool

Cons: Can`t think of any

Other Thoughts: I took a gamble because this RAM was not on the QVL of the MSI Z87-g45 motherboard I bought but it works just fine. It was the cheapest at the time is why I bought it. I think 16 gig of RAM might be overkill but I`m futureproofing my new rig as much as possible.
