Pros: -Blazing Fast
-Low latency & High Speed
Cons: -Would only work in two of my four slots on my Asus ROG Maximus VIII Hero board.
Other Thoughts: The black slots closer to the CPU would not allow the computer to boot at advertised speeds if both sticks were in. The grey slots farther from the CPU worked perfect. I spent about a half hour of troubleshooting and memory testing to see if it was one stick or another to find out my board just didnt like running them at 3200 in those black slots. All my other sticks worked just fine at 2400 in those slots so who knowsREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Newer than my old processor
Cons: -Not that much faster than my 2600kREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: -Noticeable Minor noise cancelation.
-Makes interior of case look awesome
-No smell. Some people complained of the smell but I had two kits and neither of which smelled off to me.
-Easy to wrap around the case
Cons: -The amount of yellow backing you will have when you are done.
-Very time consuming if your doing it right.
Other Thoughts: Not as sticky as some people had mentioned. I bought two kits for my ATX tower and both peeled off fine when I made a mistake. I coated everything that wasnt a window or a fan vent. Some places I even doubled up the foam if it wasnt in sight. I plan on picking this up for more builds in the future. I noticed no change in CPU or GPU temperature from adding this foam to the case.
If anything I wish they had a thicker version of this for those areas that would have allowed for more.
