5 out of 5 eggsGreat! Remember to set timings.

Pros: Fast, looks great and cheap at your local themed computer store.

Cons: None really. The only issue is that AMD boards generally don't support XMP, so i had to manually set timings.

Other Thoughts: 1.65v 9-11-9-27 1866mHz It works.

5 out of 5 eggsReliable!

Pros: I installed the 8Gb of Ram into an EVGA P67 SLI 130-SB-E675-KR Motherboard without any problems.

I have been operating on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit Edition.

The RAM was overclocked to 1600 without problems and has been functioning since 08/12 without any problems.

Cons: No issues.

Other Thoughts: The rebate was processed efficiently.

3 out of 5 eggsIt's...ok

Pros: Works, never had an issue with quality

Cons: I have never been able to get it to the 1866 speed. I have seen 1600, currently sitting at 1333

Other Thoughts: this is probably my fault, as I don't know much about bios settings for RAM, but everything I have tried so far has failed. Not too much of a problem, but it does kinda suck.

5 out of 5 eggsLove Patriot

Pros: Using it in my build, AMD Phenom X4 BE 965. I have 1 kit (4X4) and just purchased another set of 4X4 of these. With DDR2 alot of my bottlenecking was thanks to ram not going all the way. I will not loosen timings and this ram handles my CPU FSB up to 4.1Ghz.

I only recommend Patriot to anyone and will be using their memory in all of my applications.

Cons: I want some Patriot swag with Ram like they have with SSD's.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: No issues. Overclocked past 1866 via my motherboard clocking software. No issues once I got the voltage set properly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Fairly tall, so make sure your non oem processor cooler clears before adding 4 sticks.

5 out of 5 eggsThe looks and the speed

Pros: - Looks...oh the looks
- Fast

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure what more needs to be said. The copper with black over the top is killer. I was being really picky and wanted to black out the inside of my case (white/black theme). The little bit of copper sets these things off inside my case though. They are fast, and reliable, and they look great!

5 out of 5 eggsSAY WHAT ?

Pros: This is great ram for an intel chip i7 generation 2 or 3. i love this stuff over clocks like crazy. 7.8 on windows 7 system rating. Great value for great ram. i bought this ram at another vendor with a outstanding rebate. i don't think its an ADM part.

Cons: Reading all these bad reviews from ADM noobs really blows. The ram is over clocked? Try bumping the clock speed on your processor to hit 1866. If that doesn't work then your mother board doesn't support the rated speed.

Other Thoughts: Patriot Memory has been around a long time. i personally use their ram on most of my new builds with out an issue.
If i ever had an issue i would go to their site and look up the mother board and clock enter the value and BAM guess what it works. i'm going to purchase another 8 gigs of this ram for my new build no matter what these knuckle heads write Don't be afraid Patriot has a great RMA department to go with a great product.

3 out of 5 eggsNot fully compatible

Pros: Works with Biostar TZ77XE4 at XMP1 setting of 1866 MHz. XMP1 only no XMP2. Very high memory benchmark scores.

Cons: Works only with one pair of RAM sticks. When I put in two pairs of this RAM at XMP1 setting, MemTest86 will immediately show errors, which means it is unusable. I had to pull the second pair out. I think the problem is a combination of RAM and motherboard incompatibilities.

Other Thoughts: If you want to buy two pairs I recommend low voltage sticks. RAM works best with one pair only no matter what the situation is.
