Pros: High quality
Cons: Doesn't operate at the rated speed on a Asus M4A79XTD EVO. Once I set the speed to 1600 MemTest pours out thousands of errors. When I set it back to 1333 there aren't any issues.
I've trudged through multiple forum posts on the manufacturers website and enthusiast websites to no avail...no combination of timings or voltages appear to make this work realiably at 1600 with my motherboard.
Other Thoughts: I've resigned myself to just stick with these modules at 1333. In reality 1333 vs. 1600 isn't much of a noticeable difference. That said, I'm giving 3 eggs because these should run at rated speed. The description says these are compatible with AMD platforms and although these specific modules aren't listed on my motherboard's compatibiltiy list, the advertised timings and voltage match other compatible modules. That leads me to believe these modules are limited to certain platforms.READ FULL REVIEW
Other Thoughts: Upgraded my Gateway P7811FX in 2011 and haven't had any issues. My laptop automatically detected the correct timings as it should and 8 passes of MemTest came up clean. Very happy with this purchase!READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: BIOSTAR A880GZ AM3+ AMD 880G + SB850 SATA 6Gb/s HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
Pros: - Inexpensive...excellent for a budget build
- Core unlocker works and is stable
- Small footprint
- Visually appealing
Cons: - Only SATA onboard so plan accordingly
Other Thoughts: Got two of these as a budget build for my kids. The first thing I did was unlock the second core on the AMD Sempron 145 Sargas 2.8GHz CPUs I bought and it worked flawlessly. Perhaps I got lucky but we haven't had any stability issues at all.READ FULL REVIEW
