Pros: Installed easily, looks good too.

Cons: BIOS only recognized 1600mhz. But I think that's either a factor of the Motherboard or CPU.

Overall Review: I changed the DRAM Frequency to 1866Mhz, BIOS accepted the change but Windows 8 wouldn't boot. I was finally able to get Windows to accept the 1866Mhz by manually entering the DRAM timing and voltage into BIOS. The 4 timing numbers (10-11-10-30) went into the BIOS values for tCL, tRCD, tRP, and tRAS, everything else left at auto. Then I set the DRAM voltage to 1.515v (There was no option for 1.5v in my BIOS) Windows booted right up after that.
