Pros: These DIMMS run blisteringly fast if set up properly. See other thoughts for more details.
Cons: These DIMMS were detected as 1333mhz 9-9-9-24 1.5v
Other Thoughts: After playing with the settings, I ultimately got the sticks to run at 1333mhz 5-5-5-14 1.9v. Simply put, those are amazing latencies for 1333mhz that not even Newegg's best 1333mhz DDR3 DIMMS could compete with at stock volts. While 1333mhz 5-5-5-14 IS faster than 1800mhz 8-8-8-21, I feel let down that these DIMMS would not run as implied by their specifications and even more disappointed by G.Skill's lack of customer service.

Works with EVGA 790i Ultra
Pros: Very good price compared to competition. 1800MHz is freakin powerful and the timings aren't too shabby either. It works very well with my EVGA 790i Ultra motherboard and Intel Q9450 cpu
Other Thoughts: When you boot up for the first time, your BIOS defaults at 1333MHz and and 9-9-9-24 timings. You need to manually change this in the BIOS to get the most out of this RAM. Change the voltage to 1.9v

Pros: Fast RAM, stays cool, the heat spreaders make a difference. Decent timing for ddr3. I have never had a problem with GSkill. Use their RAM in my laptop, gaming comp, and workstation. Newegg had good fast shipping once again. I believe it uses Micron chip... which is by far the best chips for RAM... I will never buy value RAM anymore for the reason that they don't use micron chips. RAM performs very well. I have 4GB in right now.
Cons: I haven't found any yet... RAM hasn't had any problems yet
Other Thoughts: qx9650 Intel 3.0, 4GB GSkill, Nvidia 8600GT (until my GTX 280 comes), 2TB+ HD
