Pros:

Works great
All memory recognized immediately
Everything as advertised

Cons:

Completely stupid heat sinks, look rediculous and often get in the way of many (see: most) aftermarket high end heatsinks.

The Vengeance line RAM heatsinks (as opposed to the dominator line) are made out of cheap stamped aluminum sheet metal.

Functions identical to the lower profile version without the ridiculous heatsinks.

Other Thoughts:

Taking the cons into consideration, not only does the RAM look cheap and gaudy, the manufacturing of the heatsinks is undeniably cheap. Add to that the fact that these things often impede the function of high efficiency aftermarket cooling, and you have a recipe for disaster. They chose form over function, and sadly the form is undesirable as well.

For such good quality RAM its a shame it got paired with these fins.

With these in several machines, one of the machines was running warm and seemed odd. When opened, the machine's CPU heatsink was touching the closest memory heatsink. Swapped out the RAM for low profile, saw and 8-12 degree temp reduction. I would have never guessed the temp difference would be so severe.
