5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: This memory is still kicking. I have been running a pair of these at 2000mhz 1T for a while now on and ASUS M5A88-M motherboard.

Cons: I only bought 2, had to do some research and buy 2 more from another vendor instead of through Newegg because they didn't have these.

Other Thoughts: Mushkin has been good to me.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's ram and it works.

Pros: It works, it looks cool.

Cons: My motherboard was finicky with the ram- had to re-install solidly a few times to get it to boot. But not sure if motherboard or ram is issue.

Other Thoughts: Had the same issue when I added 8 more GB of this exact ram for a total of 16. Still- could be motherboard... or maybe I am just afraid to push that hard when installing.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing on XFX 790i Ultra

Pros: One of the few kits that runs at reasonable speeds on a 790i. Unlike other 8GB kits I've tried, this one was able to POST on the first attempt. Currently running at 1.65V, 1700MHz linked and synced, 8-9-9-24 1T, subtimings on auto.

Cons: None, it works far better than the other brands of memory I've tried on my 790i.

2 out of 5 eggsOk when it works

Pros: Good when it works.

Cons: After 3 months, massive BSOD, ram failures, etc.

Other Thoughts: Switched back to a 2x2 GB Mushkin that worked, will have to rethink purchasing from Mushkin again...

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING STICKS!

Pros: I bought those sticks as an upgrade for 790 Ultra board and even though they are not officially supported they work like a charm. Now upgrading to Z68 platform and keeping those sticks, still compatible at awesome timings and speeds! GREAT WORK MUSHKIN!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: 790 Ultra 1800MHz config which worked for me:
8-10-9-27 2T 6-45-12-27-32-7.8-120 @ 1.675V
