5 out of 5 eggsKiller RAM

Pros: Crucial makes amazing products, made in no small part possible by the excellent manufacturing and fabrication of their RAM chips by Micron. I've bought many different SSDs and RAM sticks over the years of many different brands and I've never had a single issue with a Crucial product.

CAS Latency: 9 <--- Fantastic. For 1866MHz chips, the only serious competitor with this set of RAM is the Corsair Dominator series.

Compatibility: I use this ram in an MSI z97 MPower AC Pro motherboard and these guys fired up no problem.

Note: Most motherboards won't recognize the 1866MHz speed for the ram out of the box, you'll need to manually set the overclock in your bios. It was very easy with my motherboard; select the speed and it just works.

These RAM sticks are sleek, low profile, and out of the way. If you use a liquid CPU cooler in a Mini-ITX or a Micro-ATX case and are worried about clearance for your radiator, you won't have to worry about this set of RAM. I think this is one of the categories that Crucial does better than the Corsair Dominator series. The heat sinks on those are much larger and although they dissipate heat better, the aren't as low profile and may obstruct the radiator in certain smaller cases with liquid cpu coolers.

Cons: Absolutely none

5 out of 5 eggsVery fast, awesome performance

Pros: Awesome performance, low latency high speed

Cons: A little miffed they dropped the price $30 a week after I bought it, but I guess that's my fault

Other Thoughts: You'll probably want to adjust the size of your Windows Paging file, 16gb paging file isnt really necessary, and it will save precious space on an SSD.

Pros: Fast
Price

Cons: None (see thoughts)

Other Thoughts: Great memory, not over priced because of the name. The hear shield is a bit lacking if you are overly worried about that sort of thing, I was not so it is fine for my uses.
