Pros: The colors are nice, if you're into that. It looks kind of like a harmonica. I bought this particular stick because it was the exact same price but with a heatsink. It seems to fit very nicely into the designated slots, and the stick doesn't seem flimsy in the least.
Cons: I haven't tested this particular stick for errors, but I've read the reviews of other people's and suspect that mine has the exact same issue. POST failure. Tried every slot on my motherboard. I triple and double verified that this stick is supposed to fit well within the specifications of the motherboard.
I think if proper testing for errors was done on all the sticks Patriot would have a very sweet deal.
All in all, I would probably still buy a Patriot product, but I'd do a little more research before hand to make sure the price isn't a sacrifice of quality and care.
Other Thoughts: I will update this review if the problem is with my motherboard and not this stick of RAM. I find that "every slot on my motherboard is malfunctioning" is too hard to believe with no other motherboard malfunctions..
Heatsinks on RAM are apparently not all that useful. The entire purpose seems to be for pretty builds!
I didn't call customer service either, so I can't comment on Patriot's customer service.
