Pros:

Excellent performance on Socket 2011, and easy to config, just remember to use the XMP profile. A lot of people don't seem to realize that they need to just set the XMP profile to get full performance out of it. Memory isn't plug and play unless you want to deal with the "slow but easy and stable" OEM stuff, but the config isn't hard at all. It just requires staying informed.

Cons:

The heatsinks are a little tall and can interfere with certain coolers. My experiences with this memory are that it doesn't even need these cooler. They're barely warm to the touch while running full bore. Are they really needed? I prefer to just use a close loop water cooler to avoid issues like this.

Other Thoughts:

These are the same modules that are used in other DDR3-2133 modules, but are tuned for lower latency instead. They can be overclocked, but it will raise the latency. It doesn't overclock to 2133 as well as some others because of this low latency tuning. This is more geared toward being able to load up a full 64GB on a Socket 2011 board without having crippling latency, rather than flat out speed. Think light sports pickup vs sports car. A couple sets like this will give you high end gaming performance while giving you enough memory to run all those VMs or high res Photoshop or video editing while not gaming. It does the job well.
