Solid RAM

Pros: They are low profile so any larger CPU coolers should fit without much fuss. Both sticks worked well. I am running mine with a slight OC and they have been working flawlessly.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have recommended this RAM to a few friends. I know one guy bought them and they have been working fine for him as well.

Awesome

Pros: Low profile, low voltage and CAS latency 8 memory.

Fits under my Cryorig C1 air cooler which completely covers my DIMM slots.

Loaded XMP profile in UEFI and away I went.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Wanted low voltage DDR3 to pair with an Intel Xeon (Haswell) and ASUS Z97 Sabertooth motherboard.

Only had it for a day so far...

Pros: As I read on a review on the web... you can run these bad boys at 1.25v 8-8-8-24 1t

Cons: The head spreaders are literaly attached RIGHT on the ram chips that are on the pcb...
DO NOT press down on the heat spreaders...
I've made this mistake years ago and ripped off ram chips from the pcb.

These sticks make it very difficult to push down on the outside where the pcb is exposed. My guess is it's because it's L ram (low pro... very small height).

Just be careful installing.

Other Thoughts: When I put my PC together I had the following:
Asrock z97e itx/ac mb
i5 4690 (3.5 - 3.9 turbo)
2x8gb GSkill Trident 7-8-8-24 1T @ 1600mhz 1.56v
Crucial MX100 256gb sata III SSD
MSI Mini ITX GTX760 2GB
Corsair CS450M PSU

I don't know what happened to me recently, but I've been caring more about packing a punch from a PC minus all the unnecessary watt consumption....

I ended up selling my 4690 CPU to my friend and buying a 4690T (also a quad core, that only has a TDP of 45w!) 2.5ghz with turbo of 3.3ghz.

Benchmarks barely notice the difference. Maybe overall this cpu is about 18% faster. But I'm not encoding any videos (yet) so I don't really care.
I could have gotten a 35w TDP 4670T dual core with HT, but figured for another 10w why not future proof it a bit since prices were similar.

I also ridded of my Mini ITX GTX760 that pulled 200w on full load. Got a Mini ITX GTX950 that now takes a 6 pin instead of 8 and has a ~90w TDP i believe.

Even sold the GSkill TridentX 1.5v DDR3 1600mhz 7-8-8-24 1T ram for crucial 1.35 DDR3L 1600mhz 8-8-8-24 1T ram and run them at 1.25v.

PC used to pull 300w on full load of GPU and CPU... now it wont even get to 200w and it gets better FPS.

What a difference.

Now looking to eliminate my LCD screens that take up 280w while all 3 are on for some LED backlits that take up 80w total for 3.

Wish they had a 80Plus Gold Modular PSU that was 300w... my CS450m is now too much for my mini ITX.

Reasonably priced, stable, reliable RAM

Pros: Product arrived quick without any issues. Easy to install and once configured in the bios ran memtest without any issues. I had to adjust a few settings in the bios to get my mobo to accept the 1600 timing reliably. First few attempts would not boot so I had to break down and bother to review my manual. It was an older mobo and seemed to prefer to run with 1333 instead of 1600 like this memory is rated for but with a few tweaks everything worked out perfectly. With a newer mobo I'm sure this will work right out of the box without issues.

Cons: None that I found, but honestly I've never had problems with crucial products

Excellent

Pros: My mainboard was only able to get these up to 1400 .. so did not test at 1600
at 1400 was able to get CAS 7-7-7-23 at 1.35 V

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Verdict: would buy again

Lower Voltage

Pros: Shorter profile, fits better with CPU cooler and blocks less air.

Lower voltage. This really does work. I lowered the voltage in the bios after installation and never had a hiccup since.

Cons: None.

Good product after promotion

Pros: 1600MHz 8-8-8-24 latency 1.35V AFTER overclocking manually with XMP profile #1. 1600MHz 8-8-8-24 1.50V after overclocking with XMP profile #2. 1300MHz 9-9-9-24 1.50V with JEDEC profile.

Cons: Base frequency is not 1600MHz but 1300MHz with 9-9-9-24 latency with JEDEC profile. I had to change the frequency manually in BIOS to overclock them. Why should I overclock them to get advertised speed?

Other Thoughts: I purchased two 8GB modules as a promotion, which was cheaper than any other DDR3-1600 CL9 modules. So I can't complain too much but I think I got what I paid for.
