5 out of 5 eggsRan as advertized

Pros: Ran at advertised timings and clock. Benchmarked faster than most memory modules with similar ratings. Low profile heatsinks, really good for bulky CPU Coolers. Will update in the future and see how it overclocks.

Cons: Would sometimes drop 1 module and read 4GB / 6GB but I'm not sure if that is caused by my MOBO (Rampage III Gene) or the memory modules itself. But overall, it rarely happens.

Other Thoughts: Great buy! Might pick up another set in the near future for a total of 12GB.

5 out of 5 eggsReally Impressive Stuff

Pros: I actually have a slightly different kit than these, but seeing as there were no reviews I want to help out someone looking to get the best memory possible for their system. Seriously, you are looking in the right place if that is what you are after.

I ordered 2 kits for a total of 12GB, and my kit is set to run at 6-8-6-24 @ 1600mhz. Even with all 12 GB installed I still get these timings-really impressed by this. I have the memory paired with an i7 950 on a Gigabyte GA-X58-UD3R mobo.

When my setup is overclocked to 3.8 Ghz, I had to loosen the timing a bit to 8-8-8-24, so do expect to have to sacrifice some read latency if you are overclocking. This is typical and expected, but still decent timings for a stable overclock. Survived 2 simultaneous instances of Prime 95 (24hrs) and memtest86 with 0 errors at these timings while burning in the overclock settings. They are installed in my main osx86, win7, and ubuntu ultimate machine without any issues

Cons: Even though they say radioactive, my geiger counter says they are not-oh well then

Other Thoughts: Mushkin RAM is really the best, and their tech support can be helpful too if you want some OC advice. I would expect this kit to run at the specified timings based on my own very satisfying experience. I have also had very good luck overclocking mushkin RAM in general, although keep in mind that you will have to loosen up the timings a bit in order to get a post and a stable setup. I would expect to loosen up to 9-9-9-27 if you want to hit that nice 2000mhz mark.

The heatsink on these are also nice and short to fit under your massive air cooling apparatus. I have a scythe mugen revision 2 and the fit is tight but just right really.
