It does what it should

Pros: The heat spreaders add a high end feel to the modules without and obnoxious extras. I plugged them into my Asus p6t se and every thing went perfect.

Cons: I got what I paid for instead of recieving dual 6990 AMD video cards!

Other Thoughts: I first purchased Geil RAM in 2003, I have not been this pleased with a manufaturer ever. All sticks I have ever bought are still in service or just taken out due to complete system redisigns to technology that no longer supports the memmory controller they were designed for, DDR>ddr2>ddr3.

Runs hot in an HTPC

Pros: Cheap, comes with heatsink

Cons: Runs hot. Be careful when not using a well ventilated case. My first order overheated quickly causing memory errors and I had to submit an RMA. The replacement has been working fine now for about a week.

Other Thoughts: I'm using an GIGABYTE GZ-SPIM51-P0B as an HTPC case, so there's less ventilation than a standard case. Still, the first 2 sticks of RAM should have worked perfectly. I tried out some Patriot Sector 5 RAM I had in another computer and it worked great and wasn't nearly as hot.

I like it. You will too.

Pros: Inexpensive. Works. Looks nice. Good voltage. Good timings. Stable. Heat spreaders just in case.

Cons: Didn't give birth to another litter so I'll have to buy two more sets for my next build.

Other Thoughts: From my recent studies and 30 years of computer hobby experience more than 95% of us don't need a higher clock speed. The less than 5% who do need it because they actually work with their computers and get paid for their time, not because they play with them. If you firmly believe that's not true, make sure you lower your tech knowledge back down to 2 or 3 before you click submit.

Was able to set timings to 6-6-6, boot up and load OS, but didn't leave them there or run a stress test. I want these to last a long time. I believe they are actually better than the price or the ratings.

Paired with an AMD Athlon II 260, for Windows XP (and Ubuntu), Email, Internet, YouTube, Hulu, Zynga games, spreadsheets, word processing, and organizing 100,000+ snapshots with Picasa, this is more than enough memory...as long as you don't try to do all that at once.

If you're one of those people who want to be able to do all of that at once, you need more than this. Buy two sets like I plan to.

Inconsistent

Pros: Inexpensive

Cons: Inconsistent

Other Thoughts: This is my 3rd set of Geil RAM. My first pair was bad. Seeing all errors when running a memtest. Exchanged for a new set... works great. Purchased another set to get 8Gb on my Win7 Home Premium 64-bit. This worked fine for a few months. Then my Dell started to reboot randomly and freeze on any application the CAPS lock wouldn't even work on the keyboard. Thinking it was my Win7, I started from scratch and built a Win7 Professional 64 bit. Still rebooting randomly and freezing almost once a day, if not every other day. I decided to pull out Geil 2Gb stick and still same problems. The next day, put back the Geil 2Gb and removed the other one. No reboots and no freezing on apps. I did run a memtest and nothing shows... weird. So now I'm running on 6Gb. Tried to go to Geil's website and get an "The server returned a "500 Internal Server Error". Too bad I passed my 30 day return. I hope Geil can do something about my bad 2Gb stick.

Does what it needs to!

Pros: No problems after 4 months in a system that isn't turned off. Ever. Doesn't get got, doesn't cause any lock ups.

Cons: Price is higher than 1333 but that seems to be typical.
