Pros: I purchased this back in May of 2009. The power supply powers an overclock i7-930 running at 4.02 GHz with overclock G.Skill 12GB DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) ram, a video card and 6 HDs with zero issues.
Cons: None of course.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I popped these into my HP DV8T laptop and I have had zero issues. This baby screamed before, but I needed a tad bit more ram. I'd always recommend G.Skill as one of the top 3 ram providers across desktops and laptops. Combine this with my Intel X2 SSD and my system is silky smooth.
Cons: You kidding, NO!READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Absolutely zero problems getting them ram to work.
I enabled the XMP and then I changed the voltage to 1.54v. I did this because I wanted to overclock the ram. I'm currently running all 12GB at 1680 MHz at CAS 9-8-8 timing. I haven't tried to tighten them anymore, but I assume I could. My i7-930 is stable at 4.02GHz, and while I had the ram overclocked higher previously the CPU was not stable. The only thing I can currently tighten is the CAS timings, which I'll play with in the future, but for now I'm happy with the ram and G.Skill is always highly recommended when it comes to being at the top of the list for ram.
Other Thoughts: With memory it usually works or it doesn't. Before you blame a memory supplier, you should move your memory around to different slots on your motherboard, ensure voltages are correct, you power supply is sufficient etc. I know memory has problems from time to time, but it seems as of late, when I read reviews I see individuals that either don't know what they are doing, or assume something is broke before they troubleshoot correctly.
Normally when you enable XMP, you should check the voltage that is assigned. For some reason the voltage is usuallly incorrect when using XMP. Set it to what the company says, or if that option is not available just above it.
