5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Used 12GB (6 sticks). Install was easiest ever (out of 5). BIOS and Windows recognized all 12GB of RAM no problem. Auto select speed in BIOS defaulted to 1066. Had to manually set it to 1600. Don't know if that's a short coming of the RAM or the board.

Stress tested with prime95 with no problems.

Cons: Heat spreader are tall and might cause problems with certain builds. Wasn't a issue with mine though they only cleared the CPU heat-sink by about 1/8th inch.

Other Thoughts: ASUS P6X58D-E
Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition
Windows 7 Pro
Thermalright U120eXtrem1366RT R-C

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory!

Pros: Using the XMP Profile these modules work wonderfully on my P6X58D-Premium. I am very particular about my systems and stress test new builds at stock settings before I proceed further. These took everything in stride. The tall heatspreaders might interfere with some CPU coolers but most should do just fine. They do work though as they run much cooler than my XMS3 with standard heatspreaders

Cons: Honestly can't think of any at this time.

Other Thoughts: Looks like there was a problem with Gigabyte boards which affect this kit's ratings a bit but I assure you they're fine on the Asus P6X58D-Premium and I would imagine they would be the same on Asus' other X58 boards.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent ram

Pros: Fast ram, easy to set up at 1600 with XMP, color matches my Gigabyte motherboard

Cons: Nothing yet.

Other Thoughts: The heatsinks are kind of tall, but this did not negatively effect my build.

5 out of 5 eggsXMP

Pros: XMP makes getting 1600MHz as simple as one bios setting.
Blue heat sink sort of matches the blue motif in my case.

Cons: Not really a con, but from the images I thought the heat sinks were a metallic blue instead of the flat blue they are.
Price - not the cheapest 1600MHz DDR3, but still less than the Dominators (at least when I bought these).

Other Thoughts: Antec 900
Core i7 920
OCZ Vertex SSD (60GB)
Patriot Viper 1600MHz (6GB)
XFX 5770
Zalman CNPS 9700 NT (replaced fan with blue LED fan)
Corsair 650HX
NZXT Sentry-2 (molex fan speed controller)

5 out of 5 eggsWorks just fine on the Gigabyte EX58-UD4P

Pros: Ram is solid, heat sink is build very nicely unlike other chips where the heat sinks are just barely holding on. These seem like they are solidly built. Ive managed to run the ram at 1560mhz (FSB at 195x21multi=4.1ghz). For some reason at 1600mhz (200x21=4.2ghz) Im getting alot of failures on OCCT and Prime. And Ive nailed it down to the Ram since I can continue to shoot the vcore higher and same rounding errors come up. QPI/VTT is fairly high as well with no change. So not sure if this RAM can truly hold 1600mhz

Cons: Be nice if I could run these at 1600mhz or even 1700mhz. I bought this ram after looking at tests where they showed these could easily run 1800mhz. I cant even get the rated 1600mhz to run. And for those of you who believe Memtest is the answer, no, memtest doesnt hit the RAM hard enough. Prime95 or OCCT with large RAM option really slams the RAM more than memtest ever will or can do.

Other Thoughts: Im not knocking any eggs off as its performing dammmn fast as it is. Yes I would like to get to 1600 or 1700, but im at 1560, Im going to knock an egg off for 40mhz? Come on now. No way....

I am however going to try a few more things before I call it quits on pushing this OC higher on my i7 920 setup. Im going to try to bump the DRAM voltage up higher, thats really the only thing left besides everything else that I kept clicking up a few notches each time I ran into a rounding error. So now time to get to upping the DRAM voltage. I have it set to 1.66v on the BIOS (cant select 1.65, only 1.64 or 1.66 on Gigabyte boards), but looking at Everest readings the RAM is only seeing 1.63v. So maybe I need to bump it to 1.68 in the bios. Shouldnt be any issue.
