5 out of 5 eggsFast Ram

Pros: This RAM is very fast. Probably some of the best you can buy for 1600 MHz

totally happy with it in my i5 computer with genuine intel MB and velociraptor raid setup

Cons: Not really a con if you're careful but ***WATCH OUT***
I built a computer a year ago with this and decided to add two more sticks to get 16GB total, at some point in time they changed from double sided to single sided organization and they won't work together in most (if not all) boards. Make sure you have the same type if you are combining kits!

Other Thoughts: I bought a 3rd set so I had two matching to use in my computer, thankfully I had a friend that needed some ram so I sold him the two pieces that were different from the other 4 so I wasn't at a complete loss. again, not really a con because you should buy a 4 piece kit

4 out of 5 eggs1600, but no need to push.

Pros: case lat is 7-8-9-24. works fantastic. no problems. fast, but have to edit stock settings on mob, as it sets it auto to 1333. im sure i could get more than 1600 but i dont need the extra speed. add another 8 gigs and there isnt much i could ask for. durability is supposed to be the highest of any ram. mushkin wins.

Cons: none with a good clearance with your cpu cooler assuming you buy aftermarket. noctua has no problem.

5 out of 5 eggsA year in review.

Pros: I bought this pair for a HTPC, that was a year ago. Now I do not punish my memory (no overclocking, or insane speed testing), I used this set for a computer that in my home, is on seven days a week. That being said, it did what it was supposed to do. So I bought another pair for my new build, because the last time I bought 16Gb, and I don't use even half of it.

Cons: Well I cant overclock it to 956 Gigahertz. If you need memory and you do not need to overclock, then this memory is at a good price point.

Other Thoughts: If you need memory and your PC handles 8Gb @ 2x4Gb. Then that's all you need to know.

5 out of 5 eggsPower Boost!

Pros: This ram Maxed out the board for the price.
I was running 4GB 2X2 type and this ram shoves that rams face into the dirt and rubs its nose in it. Its blazingly fast timed right even with older bios, The heat sinks are like other ME products i have and work well.
This product is made for gamers that much is very clear.

Cons: The onlt con is the heatsink are large so much so they touch each other , thou this has never caused a problem.

Other Thoughts: if you are considering similar timed/speed/size ram I would go with ME every time in the last 5 years i have built about 15 gaming rigs and the Mushkin always in reality wins out in quality and preformance.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Great Speed, and reliability.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I bought 8 Gigs 6 months ago, and it runs like a dream. I wanted a little more power because I am running a VM so I gave it another 8. Runs like a champ.

5 out of 5 eggsGood RAM

Pros: 8GB at 1600 with tight timings
Easy to install and set up on my Motherboard (Gigabyte 990FXA-UD3)

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This pair of RAM was on sale when I got them, $59 I believe. If you see them on sale again grab them!

5 out of 5 eggsIts good

Pros: It had good speed for the price. Its quick enough and plentiful enough for a HTPC.

Cons: I was using this in a Silverstone MILO case with a Zalmann 110mm fan. I had to do some mods to the heat sinks on the memory. This is not a problem for me, but if you do not like doing this, look for something with a little less heat sink.

Other Thoughts: Its good just make sure its for you.

5 out of 5 eggsGo USA

Pros: I manage to get this to a cas 6 (cas 8 or 9 boxed) stable for days with alot of good timing; however, deemed unnecessary for lack of noticeable speed unless running bench marking programs. regular and gaming use was still fast. This is very stable Ram. They make this in the Colorado, GO USA. Support will be a breeze whenever this break... if ever. Most other company are made where english is a second language and support hard to understand with their rich accents. BTW i am Asian/American

Cons: The Price is high but if it break and least you have good customer service to relay to and very fast shipping. RMA is usual fast and decent from what i hear from Newegg. It is twice the price of Gskill with the same bench mark when it was compared on tomhardware.com
