Pros: I upgraded to this ram from another set of 2x1GB Patriot Memory. It was as simple as taking out the old and plugging in the new. Manually set timings to 4-4-4-12 and running stable at 2.1V. It is currently running at 850mhz on these timings 100% stable in games and other programs. Not much of an OC, but it works for what I do.
Cons: The picture shows a black ram chip with black heat spreader. The ram chip it self is actually green with the same heat spreader. No big deal though!
Overall Review: After seeing the ram I was fearful when pressing on the heat spreader to push the ram into each slot. The heat spreader held firm though and the ram installed without any problems. Kudos to patriot as I have not had one problem with their ram.
Currently running Asus P5N32-E SLI Plus, 8800GTS EVGA 640, E6420 2.13 Processor, running without any problems using this ram.
Pros: I recently finished a build with this ram for my girlfriend. Not sure what the ram detected at in bios as it was on auto, But when I changed the timings to 4-4-3-5 and voltage to 2.1V the ram has run from Xp installation to gaming with absolutely no problems what so ever. This ram is 100% stable with any any program I run, be it anti-virus, or first person shooters.
Cons: 5 Dollars cheaper now :-)
Overall Review: The ram in the picture is white I think... Mine came blue, But hey.. I think it looks better blue.
Asus P5N32-E Sli Plus. Intel E6420 2.13GHZ. <2Gigs Gskill 4-4-3-5> EVGA 7600GT WD320Gig HD.
Pros: This memory came couple days ago. And I have nothing but praises. Put this in my old Axux A8N-E motherboard for a memory upgrade from 1 gig of Coxsaix xms to this after reading the reviews. This memory auto detected with a cas of 2.5, But once I set the timings manually to 2-3-2-5 and voltage to 2.8 it has run every game and program I run 100% stable.
Cons: Not really a con.
The memory only ran stable at 2.8V
The memory says 2.6-2.8. Just had to find the sweet spot.
Overall Review: This ram is fast. Also the ram itself is very heavy and built tough; Combine that with the fact that it looks beautiful and you have a good product.
Pros: I don't know it hasn't worked yet.
Cons: I bought 2 of these for a couple systems I was building. This motherboard + E6600, 2Gigs Ram, Geforce 8800gts, Duel raptors... both of them, BOTH of them have bad bios chips, Skips Bios and loads Biosblocker as a tool to help fix this problem... Didn't work... All my previous mobo's were Asus, but i'm seriously considering a different brand now.
Overall Review: What kind of luck does it take to get 2 bad motherboards at the same time.
