  • $309.99

Pros:

16GB in just two DIMM slots. Leaves room for future expansion

Cons:

Phenom II struggles when 4 DIMMs are installed. Had to downclock to 1066 from 1333.

Other Thoughts:

The 4 DIMM issue is apparently a limitation/characteristic of the Phenom II memory controller. I was able to run 4x 2GB DIMMs at their rated speed just fine but these 8GB DIMMs appear to load the bus a bit more than the Phenom II cares for.

I am running this set in two machines. One is running 2x at 1333 and the other is running 2x plus 2x 2GB DIMMs (for 20GB total) at 1066.
