Pros: I bought these for a possible mini-ITX mobile computing solution. The low voltage and high speed gave me the possible head room needed to under volt...see below.
Also much smaller than they look. Definitely a plus if you have a monster heat sink.
They don't get hot at all. I am not sure if the heat spreader was added for looks and resale purposes. Even at 1.35v they were only warm to the touch. Passes memtest at 1.30v.
Cons: Heat spreader may be just for looks. Mine do not get hot at all, with no case fans...
Overall Review: In the Antec ISK100 case there is only 1 fan, the CPU fan. These heat spreaders are probably just to add bulk and dimension. They really are the smallest I have seen.
I have not tried to overclock these. I am sure 90% of buyers are going that route, with which I am no help this time. I was able to drop down to 1.30v. at 1.29v memtest would throw errors. Even when I widened the gap massively to 11-11-11, 2T and dropped it down to 1033, I could only get down to 1.27v. I suspect the IC needs a preset voltage to keep the memory charged.
it may have been possible to under volt significantly with just 1 DIMM, but there is memory out there already rated for 1.25V.
Pros: Stable. Low Voltage. Low profile. Looks good. Decent price (as ShellShocker). Superfast free shipping. Nice packaging. Warranty.
Cons: None so far
Overall Review: Needed low profile RAM. This works perfectly. Happy.
Pros: I have to update my earlier review of this RAM. Newegg should feel free to remove my earlier review. I earlier stated that only 3 out of 4 sticks worked. Upon further testing, I determined the problem to be my motherboard and was deceived because one particular stick seemed to not work whenever I inserted it.
However, based on what I learned, I replaced the mobo and now all 4 sticks work fine. The memory runs cool and overclocks without difficulty at stock timings. I'm still tweaking the systems but so far no difficulty at all. Current configuration includes this RAM, an ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 and a Phenom-II 955 moderately overclocked to 3.45 GHz. Low profile RAM fits very easily under my huge heatsink - much easier than the memory it replaces (4x2 GB Kingston HyperX). Now I can run all the virtual machines I need.
Pros: Get a good mobo and you will be able to overclock the hell out of these. Low cost, Low volt, highly tweakable.
easiest build I have ever done.
Cons: No so far after burn-in.
Overall Review: GigaByte Z97-D3H v1.1 F8 Bios
G3258 @4.3 1.2v
Was waiting to pull trigger on a new machine and noticed that most people having trouble with OCing RAM have an inexpensive mobo in general. I spent a little extra money and this has allowed me to get great results with the RAM and CPU. Here is what I have done with this RAM:
8-8-8-24 2T 1600 1.35v
9-9-9-27 2T 2133 1.5v
7-7-7-21 2T 1600 1.5v
All stable using multiple bench and burn-in suites.
I liked the 7-7-7-21 with the processor @4.3 with 1.2v
Pros: very low profile, means this will work with any big high end air cooler. noctua d14, d15, Megahalem, you name it, it will work with it.
Ram timing is very flexible, i can get it down to 7-7-7-18 at 1600mhz 1.35v no problem on my x58 ud7 board. the max i got my pair up to was 2100mhz, i hit my mobo's limit before the ram, perhaps it will go higher, i'll find out when i upgrade later down the road.
Cons: price, only 2 years ago you can get 16gb for the price they charge for 8gb now. the industry say some sort of "fire" at a "factory" made the price went up, but we all know its price fixing :rolleyes:
Overall Review: don't buy into marketing gimmick of tall fancy rams, this outperforms my 2 other pair of corsair dominator in timing and voltage it's not even funny.
at first i try so hard to get a pair of used samsung wonder ram. but this can pretty much match the very sought after samsung green sticks.
Pros: 32GB of low-latency RAM at 1.35v - the best of all worlds!
Cons: Like most really good things, cost.
Overall Review: Make sure to use the XMP setting if your motherboard can recognize it. The standard JDEC settings won't give you the right timings and/or voltage and doing it all manually isn't very fun. You can verify the timings and voltage with a tool like CPUz.
Pros: I think these may be Samsung "wonder ram" ic chips. These guys have been nothing but superb so far! Have them running at 2040mhz @ timings of 9-9-9-24 1t with 1.455 volts in windows (1.442) in bios. That is with 4 DIMMS for 32gigs! All other timings are in auto mode. low profile, high performance, high bandwidth game crushers. Picked them at at MC though not here. Bought them about a month apart, two 16 gig kits. I think they can go further with the full 1.5 volts in them and lax the timings some more, but that puts even more strain on them. Before going to ddr 4, I might push them a little more.

Cons: not really a con but they run warm at these speeds. Not the rams fault though, when ran at stock speeds the stay at ambient case temp. I have a temp sensor in between the two inner sticks, when gaming they will go from case temp (about 32c) to 46c or so. Nothing dangerous but warm. My gpu and cpu are in a water loop, on two 360 mm rads. I guess the two D.O.H.C.P settings in the bios are for motherboards that will not do 1.35 volts to the DIMMS. really if you know what you are doing, there is nothing wrong with this ram.
Overall Review: MB: Asus crosshair V formula Z @ 219 bus speed
CPU: AMD FX 8350 @ 4.82 ghz, cpu/nb @ 2660 and ht speed
Power supply: Corsair AX 1200
SSD: Samsung 850 EVO 500gb
- all in a Xigmatech Elysium
Pros: speed, size, latency, voltage, and low profile these sticks are unbeatable in my opinion.
Cons: heat-sinks are a thin aluminum and glued on.
Overall Review: I normally use another brand but bought these for the low voltage, and I have only been impressed with these.
