Works great for me

CORSAIR XMS2 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Desktop Memory Model TWIN2X4096-8500C5C G

Pros: Motherboard: GA-UD3P-EP45. CPU: E8400 OC'd to 4.05 GHz. I'm not sure why there are people having problems with these modules when overclocking. As you can see above, I have my CPU OC'd fairly well and these modules run at 1080 (OC'd a tiny bit) with voltage set manually to the listed spec of 2.1. Everything is completely stable. Prime95 for 24 hours and Memtest for 24 hours. No errors of any kind.

Cons: None - Work as advertised.

Works great, but might need to modify some settings

Pros: The card can run everything I've thrown at it with the settings maxed out.

Cons: I kept getting the dreaded "Display driver has crashed, but has recovered" error on Win. 7 64 bit a few seconds after loading a game. I found that under-clocking the video card's core clock from 850 MHz (stock) to about 780 MHz eliminated these errors completely. There are a ton of workarounds out there for this issue, but this was the one that fixed it for me.

Overall Review: I was using CCC 10.2 when I got these errors. Who knows if a future update will allow me to set the core clock speed back to stock. This was not an overheating problem and my psu has plenty of juice.
