Pros:

They WORK but they are not as advertised as my title elucidates.

Cons:

These were labeled 1333MHz and 1.6V. It cannot run stable with those settings. It is listed as 1.5V and you have to set it to 1066MHz in your BIOS to get it to run stable. I initially bought 4 sticks which was fine had I knew how to install these dual channels properly as the mobo only listed how to insert 1 set of 2 but not 2 sets of 4. Over a year later I had to find that out by perusing the Corsair RAM forums. I have an ASUS X58 Sabertooth bloomfield motherboard that has 6 RAM slots. This type of memory can only be placed in the first 4 slots, NOT the last 2. Had I known this when I first built my PC, I would have order 2 sets of triple channel XMS3's.

Other Thoughts:

Read up on RAM for dual and triple channel configuration. If you order modules, don't mix them as they are in numerical order and that's the way you should install them.
