1 out of 5 eggsdied after 60 days

Pros: Worked great for 2 months

Cons: Started getting I/O errors that would cause my whole computer to freeze, finally traced it back to the RAM after running a RAM check, removed the bad sticks and computer now working on 3 year old ram at half the capacity until I can replace these two bad sticks. Died after RMA, now I have to try and go through patriot to replace them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat memory

Pros: This memory is great! Looks good, built sturdy, and performs very well. XMP and AMD profiles recognized in UEFI bios and was automatically configured to spec.

Cons: The edges of the memory are not quite razor sharp, but it is where you need to apply pressure to insert into ram slot. you definitely don't want to insert putting pressure on the heatsinks themselves.. that is a disaster at the ready!

Other Thoughts: What I said is accurate. But check it out yourself. I am not afraid of fact checking, I'm not todays' news or media ;)

3 out of 5 eggsGood but overpriced

Pros: No problems with this ram it's running in a friend's machine.

Cons: The cost is outrageous and unjustified now, I gave nearly a third of the price not two years ago. Media hype has said that desktops will be used less so they jack the price on Ram, but real reports indicate no drop in desktop use, check CPU mag for details. People still use computers, yeah they all use their iToys but still use desktops, and the pricing is stupidly insane on desktop ram.

Pros: None.

Cons: It simply failed.

4 out of 5 eggsGood RAM, Different from picture

Pros: -Works as RAM should, have not encountered any problems.

Cons: -I bought this particular RAM for an all black/gold build. In the picture, you see a black RAM module with black metal enclosing it. I was surprised to find out that the actual RAM module was green. Most of this green part is hidden by the RAM socket, nonetheless there are some green parts visible. I am deducting an egg because I chose this module over a 1866mhz one at the same price (on sale) just because of it's advertised look.

5 out of 5 eggsReally good deal

Pros: Fast and sufficient for gaming.

$35 at the time, what a steal!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Slight issue with timing but it was probably my motherboard's fault/my fault for not picking carefully.
Easily bypassed, though, so no worries.

4 out of 5 eggsRock solid Memory

Pros: Memory has been highly compatible and stable at rated speeds.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I am not an avid over clocker so I will not have data on compatibility in that area.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Ram

Pros: Got it free with my motherboard and it is actually quality ram! Runs really cool and I have had no ram related issues

Cons: Not an issue yet!

Other Thoughts: Got it Free. Good ram. Not worth $80 IMO because honestly I wouldn't buy any 8gb ram kits for that.
