5 out of 5 eggs To the "one bad reviewer" 04/13/2012

This review is from: HyperX 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1866 Desktop Memory Model KHX1866C9D3K2/8G

Pros:

First.. most motherboard by default will "NOT" set the memory speed to 1866 speeds, even if it is the default speed of the motherboard, very few do that. The majority of AMD AM2/AM3 (and some AM3+) motherboards set the speeds by default to "DDR3 1333" speeds. My "Asus Sabertooth 990FX" did the samething, you have to go any "manually change it" in the BIOS, and the "memory standards" for my mobo are 1866/1600/1333/1066, yet it still defaulted my ddr3 1600 to 1333, I had to manually select ddr3 1600. I believe alot of Intel mobo's do the samething, depending on the memory speed.

Cons:

Dunno, do not own it, just commenting on the bad reviewer.

Other Thoughts:

Think before you POST people! I see alot of people giving bad reviews on hardware, and it is not the hardware that is the problem, it's the reviewer not knowing what to do or how to properly configure stuff. I am not saying that this guy did for sure, but that is what it sounds like to me!
