5 out of 5 eggsGood Memory

Pros: Got these sticks several months ago, and they haven't failed me since.

Easy enough to install, good looking, fast.

Cons: Didn't get 4- or 8GB sticks instead.

Pretty sure I have to actually overclock my CPU for the memory to be clocked at 1600, but that's my fault.

Other Thoughts: My computer:

$35 NZXT Gamma (1 included 120mm fan) (Newegg)
$15 2 Rosewill 120mm fans top mounted. (LEDs) (Newegg)
$41 Biostar A870U3 AM3/DDR3/USB3/SATA 6Gbps/2xPCIe16x (1@4x) (Newegg; open box)
$35 AMD Athlon II 4X 620 2.6Ghz (unlockable L3 cache; don't usually keep it on 'cause it disables temp readings.) (cragslist)
$15 Rosewill RCX-Z1 CPU fan/heatsink (Newegg)
$28 PNY XLR8 2x2 GBs DDR3 1600Mhz (Newegg; rebate)
$41 Samsung Spinpoint F3 1TB HDD (Newegg; open box)
$25 Powercolor Radeon HD5770 1GB GDDR5 850/1200 (craigslist)
$15 550W PSU (might be High Power) (craigslist)

1 out of 5 eggsPNY Support

Pros: None

Cons: PNY tech support is very rude, had a package with 2 2 gig sticks, one was bad. PNY stated I had to return both sticks in original package. Sent them back a few days later both sticks were returned stating that I needed to send them back with original receipt. By this time shipping was exceeding cost, so I sent PNY an email stating they clarify requirements and focus on customer support. Will never buy PNY again.

Other Thoughts: Do not buy PNY

2 out of 5 eggsWorked at 1333 Only

Pros: Price. Color. Works at 1333 MHz.

Cons: Wouldn't work at 1600 MHz and a Kingston Hyper-X set worked well in that Biostar motherboard. Very stable with the Kingston set and no bootup with the PNY set.

2 out of 5 eggsdoes not run at correct timing

Pros: NO PROS !!! not great ram i kept on have my computer crash during games i kept on thinking my graphics card was broken i was so frustrated till I read about ram doing that to games and sure enough when i set them to 9-9-9-24 my computer ran great 8-8-8-24 they dont work. and there's no reason not to. I have a phenom 965 with a pro motherboard and i have had other ram running in this computer before with only 7-7-7-20 at 1600 mhz so its not my computer..

Cons: will not run at 8-8-8-24 at 1600 runs at 9-9-9-24

5 out of 5 eggsWorks With AMD Phenom II x4

Pros: The speed is awesome! It does not give any errors with Memtest86+.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I just upgraded from my older motherboard with DDR2 memory to a newer motherboard which supports DDR3 memory. I'm using the same AMD Phenom II x4 945, and it still supports DDR3-1600.

4 out of 5 eggsProbably good ram

Pros: I have always had good luck with PNY products. Will always buy PNY for ram and graphics cards if they have a compatible model I am looking for. I am sending this particular part number back for the cons listed below.

Cons: This is single sided ram. This prevented me from using it on my particular motherboard. The venders and manufacturer does not tell you this. I assumed it would double sided like their DDR2 ram. They used the same heat sink as their DDR2 but they had to sandwich some sort of filler material between the blank side and over the top of the extemely thin chips so the heat sink would fit and look good. I wonder how well that filler material really transfers the heat out away from the stick.

Other Thoughts: I don't know why retailers and manufacturers don't think it is important enough to specify whether their ram is single or double sided or the density of their chips. Kingston and sometimes crucial do if you dig deeper on their websites but the rest seem to leave you in the dark on that spec. This still makes a big difference on some machines and it stinks that you have to buy it to find out. So many of the ram makers are changing over to the thin high density chips even in the lower sizes just to save money and it causes more compatibilty issues especially when working on older machines.

5 out of 5 eggsGood purchase

Pros: Stable, price, delivers as advertised.
Nice looking modules with the heatshields.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This RAM has been in my Asus M4A78T-E mobo for 9 months now.
All advertised numbers are dead on.
I don't extream game but messing with some video and music, this memory has been great running at stock values.

Would buy from PNY again based on this purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Deal

Pros: Cheap, fast, easy to set to 1600 and cas at 8-8-8-24. Posted right away after bios tweaks.

Cons: not spec. for 2000mhz (but who really cares...)

Other Thoughts: For the price this is a great deal! I have 2 2x2gb kits running 8bg in dual channel mode. Has increased performance in every aspect of my computer. Can run 4 VMware computers with tasks smoothly.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent RAM at an excellent price!

Pros: This RAM is great! I installed this in a Phenom II 955 BE / ASUS M5A97 rig and it is very stable. It handles a hefty CPU OC without having to bump up the DRAM voltage. Just be sure to take note of the 1.65v stock voltage the RAM requires.

Cons: It didn't auto-populate this 'Cons' field.
