Pros: 3TB, reasonable price decent performance
Cons: does not ship pre-formatted as GTP (Would be nice, and well... rational)
Other Thoughts: no problems so farREAD FULL REVIEW
Reaches Advertised Speeds
Has a shiny sticker
Cons: Advertised speed not default (see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: Due to budget constraints I went with this over the other RAM I was planning to get, and after reading the other reviews was prepared for a lot of hassle and possibly having to RMA.
Initially the AsRock FM2A78M-ITX+ board I put this in read it as DDR3 1600, but a quick trip to the bios and setting it on an XMP profile with the proper timing and voltage had the RAM running stable at the advertised 2133 speeds.
After about a week I have yet to run into any issues.
No problems at all so far. I can only assume other posters got a bad batch, had comparability issues, or otherwise didn't set it up right.
Giving this RAM 4 stars only because it wasn't detected as 2133 immediately, and I had to make a quick painless trip into the BIOS.
Pros: ITX board
works as advertised
Cons: only includes 2 SATA cables, 1 of which has a right angle end and the other is a straight end, for my use- the right angle ended cable is pretty much worthless
Other Thoughts: Installed and setup without issue, works as intended- just wish they wouldn't be so skimpy on the SATA cables. I'd buy it again.
The rear IO shield is a little on the cheap side, and i needed to take a pair of tin-snips to it to get the HDMI output lined up right so as not to block the plug.
Everything else was flawless. The combination of skimping on the SATA cables and a cheap rear IO shield lost it an egg, but don't let that dissuade you- it's a good board at a good price.
