Pros: It was a good solid price when I purchased this set on sale. Very fast, as well.

Cons: So since I've built my new PC including these memory modules, I've been getting quite a few MEMORY MANAGEMENT BSOD errors. I've removed a couple of the sticks to try and figure out which ones are causing my stability issue, because I'm going to have to RMA them I believe. :(

Pros: Affordable i5 2500k overclock supporting board.

Cons: Like a few others have mentioned in this review section, I have issues with the board shorting when to many mounting screws were used. I have to cut down the mounting screws from 6 to 3 in order to get the system to power up at all. I spent 3 hours troubleshooting other issues, trying different PSUs, ect, just to come here and read that other people had this issue.

A headache for sure, but its the actual functionality of the board in the end that matters, and right now it seems to be okay (Crossing fingers). I've only had it running for a few hours now, but I suspect no further issues.

Other Thoughts: Knocked off a couple of eggs just because of the shorting issue, and now I have to have the constant worry on my mind of the board not being "completely" secured.
