Pros: Be sure to look at Neweggs Pics to comfirm correct angle as there seems to be no standard on right or left angle configuration... I can Pull 550+mbps through these, so they really are sataIII @ 6g speed capable:)
Cons: See above..
Other Thoughts: see above..READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Made 2000mhz on all 4 sticks @ 9,11,10,28 timmings @ 250ht 16X 1.9V, cpu @ 3.75ghz, a few degrees warmer but no-biggie, seems stable and did I say FAAAAASSSST!!! I could go further, but I think this is about the limit for my equiptment and its longivity & stability..
Cons: Can't install itself on MB and set itself in bios on an AMD platform?
Other Thoughts: This took all of 4 times to get this to fly from my last review and last OC tries yesterday:) So in all 7x i had to configure bios... Think'n a bright 10yr old could figure it out:) I build these for myself and for entertainment/self education, not a geek by no means but i have educated myself... A little persistance and about anything can be acheived if you know/learn the basics, some by trial and error and some by just playing around a little bit gradually adusting with a little patience...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: These will run WAY higher than the default 1333mhz at stock voltage & firstname.lastname@example.orgV on AMD AM3 platform.. Now that i have had a couple minutes to play with these in my bios, I have seen 2000mhz register in bios with cpu oc'd up to 3.7ghz at 250ht and 16X but would not boot windows just yet:) Am currently writing this review just after getting the to her to boot the first sucessful time OC'd@ 1800 (auto timmings still) and cpu up from 3.3stk to 3.6ghz @ 14x 225ht i think now, and will work my way up to that 2000 oc my MB and 6 core Thuban chip should be able to handle.. WEI went up .1 over stock settings on cpu and this ram when configured this way.. Absolutely happy with my decision to buy these even though Mushkin Sean(i tk) told me to buy 1600(pc3 12800) stuff instead of these for my MB and CPU!!?? :) After reading all the reviews for all Mushkin 2000 & 2133, I took a gamble and it payed off:) Bet the timming will tighten up a bunch too:)
Cons: Heat-sinks seem loose and are barely pushed-on in factory packaging and need to be pushed down onto pcb and chips a little further to work properly and efficently as only 1/2 the chips were making contact with thermal tape on heat-sinks on both sides of all four DIMM's from factory... Newegg barely packages these in a padded mailing envolope and they end up at your door nearly maingled & crushed, so order with additional parts so they are sent boxed hopefully:) Newegg is Outta stock on these for weeks at a time and only a couple in-stock when they do get them:( Buy them quick if you do see them, saves you $20 over 2 pair....
Other Thoughts: WEI can be misleading when 1 sataIII ssd is 7.8 and two in RAID 0 is only rated a 7.2-7.4 @ 800+ Mbs read speeds according to ATTO Bench32??? and 4 DIMM's of these OC'd to 1800 mhz is only 7.6??
