Works as advertised

Pros: Fast, nice capacity, stable, and the heatspreaders are attractive and not so tall as to interfere with large CPU heatsinks.

Cons: 1.65v rather than 1.5v when running at 1600mhz. This is not much of an issue, though.

Overall Review: Be sure to check your BIOS settings and change them if need be to make your memory run at the advertised 1600mhz. Most motherboards will default the to JEDEC 1333mhz profile, in stead of the XMP 1600mhz profile. This isn't a problem with the RAM, so much as motherboards' autoselection of memory profiles.
