2 out of 5 eggsHope you have a better experiance

Pros: Not DOA and works when plugged in at default SPD speed of 1066.

Cons: You may not get what you pay for. Impossible to make work at specified timings and voltages on DFI LP JR 790GX M3H5.

OCZ and DFI tech support have tried a little but not succeed over the past month with obtaining advertised timings. Works stable only at DDR3 1066 at rated voltage. With latest released BIOS 1600 is unobtainable. With beta BIOS will work at 1600 a 1.85 volts but not completely stable at this speed or at my previously stable settings. Best I can achieve is with released BIOS completely stable is 1333 at 1.837 volts at rated timings. Will work at 1333 6-6-6-18 1.837 volts but has some occasional issues.

Other Thoughts: Don't know if it is the RAM or the Motherboard but they do not work well for me in combination. X4 955 BE CPU is not overclocked and would not overclock when I tried with AMD and DFI utilities.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry that you are unable to hit rated speeds. We feel that this may be a motherboard related issue. If you have not yet visited our support forums, we will be glad to work with you and advise you of your options. We are always glad to help, and want every customer to have the best possible experience.
Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsWOW....

Pros: Unvbelievabe memory for the price! Ran a few memory programs and it was rated off the charts... Why buy the expensive ones when this will do it. Ran it with the AMD Denab 955

Cons: Nothing

5 out of 5 eggsIt just works

Pros: Plug it into your AM3 MB and it just works. No messing with timmings or voltages

Cons: It wasn't free!

Other Thoughts: Be sure to research your memory before purchasing to ensure that your voltage and timings are compatable with your system.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome ram.

Pros: Runs great at factory specs. Using a GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P motherboard. Running 1600 with 7-7-7-24 timings at 1.65 volts. Awesome ram. I recommend it to anyone.

Cons: Nothing really. I cant believe how many people are having issues getting these to run at rated speeds. I run memtest for hours without issues what so ever. Awesome ram.

Other Thoughts: Buy it for your AM3 platform. Its great memory.

4 out of 5 eggsWon't Run Stable...

Pros: Runs stable at 1333mhz 6-6-6-20 timings.

Cons: No matter what I try I can NOT get these to run stable at 1600mhz with my 790FXB-M3H5. The nice folks at the ocz forum have been trying to help me but the advice is coming in slower than I would like and doesn't help...

Other Thoughts: I still like OCZ and would buy from them in the future. Corsair and some G.Skill kits are too expensive for the timings and voltages that they offer. Maybe this memory issue is a problem with the memory controller on the processor and completely unrelated to the memory.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory

Pros: Tested memtest86 with no problems (unlike some others), i have these running at 1608MHz 7-7-7-24-28 @ 1.69 volts, they say they can do that at 1.65v, but whatever. I've ran numerous prime95 blends at these settings w/o any problems. For those of you posting about memtest86 failures, you need to list a little more info about your set up, just posting that they didn't post at rated speeds and they failed is not enough. Mine posted at 1033 until I set the times and volts myself and they ran great.

Cons: none, other buyers giving these sticks a bad rating cause they don't know what they're doing

Other Thoughts: MSI 790fx-gd70 bios 1.3
AMD PII x4 955 @ 3.7Ghz
Thermalright True 120 Black (lapped)
NZXT Tempest (Koolance fans)
Zalman 850watt PSU
Sapphire Vapor-X 4870 2gb (pair x-fire)
OCZ AMD edition 2x2gb DDR3 1600
waiting on Zalman MFC3 to come out

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good, nice specs.

Cons: Memtest86 halts on 24 errors after 53% of test #1. Was getting BSODs frequently @ 1600 7-7-7-24, so I clocked them down to 1333 @ 6-6-6-24, and things seem fast and stable in XP and about 2 hours of gaming so far - no BSODs.

I still can't get through Memtest86, so I'm still suspect of future stability and will probably RMA.

Other Thoughts: MSI 790FX-GD70
Phenom II 955 under CM V8
4GB OCZ DDR3 1600 Plat. AMD Ed.
Sapphire Vapor-X 4890
WD 300GB raptor
CM ATCS 840 case
