Pros: Great processor, runs a little on hot side.

Cons: During installation, the 4 prong of the heat sink bent backwards, and I failed to notice, during testing operations, the processor would jump in 20 degree increments up to 88 degrees C. Pretty large issue. I stopped on the way home the next day and picked up the Corsair H100 self contained water cooler. Upon removal of the stock heat sink, I noticed the bent prong, as well as the fact that only about 60-65% of the processor had thermal grease on it. I cleaned it off, applied some AS-5, and installed the H100. Have not broken the 31 C threshold under heavy load yet.

Other Thoughts: Great CPU, not so great heat sink. Plastic connectors, that can break or bend easy. When buying, think about a better more robust air or water cooler for it.

Pros: It's memory, so it was easy to install, I checked the compatibility of this with the Sabertooth Z77 ASUS board prior to purchasing, and found that it was compatible. 32GB of memory, maxed out the board, and so far, nothing I have thrown at has maxed out the memory. SWTOR, STO, WoT, everything set to high or ultra graphics, BD ripping, 70GB network transfers, havent broken the 8GB threshold yet.

Cons: None that I have come across yet.

Other Thoughts: Good product, great look to it, serial numbers on each stick would make it easy to RMA if needed. However, happy to have this in my new system.
