Pros: Fast and stable - once configured correctly.

Cons: This memory will not work without manually tweaking your BIOS. I spend a couple days tinkering with settings before getting to stay stable for about 5 hours at a stretch. Finally I called OCZ about the issues I was having. They gave me this advice which solved the problems and the system has been totally stable since (3 weeks of testing before writing this review) Try 6-6-6-18 with memory voltage at 1.8V. Make sure CMD is at 2T. Also increase the nForce SPP voltage to 1.4V. If you're not overclocking the CPU, run the memory linked and synched to the FSB.

Overall Review: System config: EVGA 132-CK-NF79-A1 LGA775 nForce 790i OCZ Reaper HPC 4Gb (2x2). PC3 10666 Vista Ultimate SP1 64bit
