5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Boots and runs 1066 with no without tweaks as it should on my GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L. Gotta love it.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I checked my mobo spec sheet for ram before I bought my ram.

Do yourself a favor and check before you order and save yourself some headaches.

3 out of 5 eggsSlightly Disappointed

Pros: Affordable ram, manufactured by Corsair... an industry leader in quality and performance.

Cons: For the first time ever, I was disappointed with Corsair memory. On 3 different motherboards, this set of ram was recognized as 800mhz instead of the 1066mhz it's advertised to be. I could overclock it to 1066mhz without problems, but I didn't feel I should have to do this just to get it to run at the advertised speed.

Other Thoughts: I have built and/or rebuilt hundreds of computers over the last 14 years, and for the last few years, I have almost exclusively used Corsair ram in my projects. While I still have the utmost faith in Corsair, this particular set of ram left me somewhat disappointed.

2 out of 5 eggsReview Update

Pros: It was detected at 1066 and worked perfectly...

Cons: ...for about 3 months.

Other Thoughts: In the 3rd month I started getting game crashes. I ran stress tests, trying to find the problem. It seemed all was cool and stable. But, something odd I noticed in CPUz was the RAM's SPD reporting a max of PC2-6400 (800), even though the timing table did show the 1066 option. So, I threw memtest86 at it. Virtually non-stop errors. I put the RAM down to PC2-6400 settings, and most the errors when away (I still got about 10 errors per pass). I can no longer recommend this RAM.

5 out of 5 eggsBest Out There

Pros: This is the best memory you can buy for the price! No questions asked. It works in every motherboard I have ever put it in. I bought this same set of memory 2 years ago (paid a lot more as well) and I had to buy another set to make 4 gigs for my new rig.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Corsair is the best memory company IMO.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in a GA-P35-DS3L

Pros: Works great on my Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L as expected - this memory is on the memory compatibility list for this mobo. No bios tweaking needed for the system to see them as DDR2/1066. Painless.

Cons: I'm not overclocking at all and they seem to get much warmer than I'd like. I upped the size of my cooling fans and installed a side fan blowing directly on them to cool them off.

Other Thoughts: I'll probably buy another set to put me up to 4GB.

5 out of 5 eggsTHE BEST OF IT"S SPEC CLASS!

Pros: This is the best Ram of it's spec class DDR2 1066
2gb dual channel.
Nothing in these spec class Ram can beat these Ram cards.

Cons: Shouldn't be unless you do something dumb or bad luck.

Other Thoughts: SO FAST it makes the inferiorities of the CPU and Motherboard stand out.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Memory

Pros: Great memory. Plenty of speed for OC'ing and the Latency is great even at stock. I was able to get mine to run at 4-4-4-12 instead of the 5-5-5-18 and at 1333FSB.

Cons: Its Corsair. They have none.

Other Thoughts: Great memory. Its basically the PC26400 modules that were ale to OC higher and have a hgiher voltage set. But they OC nice and run great in an Asus P35 mobo with a Q6600.
