OCZ Fatal1ty Edition 4GB (2 x 2GB) DDR2 1066 (PC2 8500) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model OCZ2F10664GK

Pros: Great Ram modules. Works great in dual channel, no issues installing them, no software malfunction, no OS hick-up, Easy BIOS modifications. Amazing benchmarking results - blazing fast read/write speeds. Very impressed. Also, took 3 days to ship on regular shipping (I'm in Montreal).

Cons: Default clock was 667mhz for me - issue was easily fixed in BIOS.

Overall Review: I own an ASUS P5K-SE Motherboard. It runs DDR2 1066mhz. For those of you that are wondering about the common issue "This ram is running at 800mhz, why not 1066mhz, even if i changed this option in the BIOS?". The answer...: Asus motherboards have a "cool & quiet" function. This function serves the purpose of automatically reducing the clock speeds of the CPU and RAM (amongst others...) to keep your system running cool when it does not require all that speed. Should you disable this "cool & quiet" function, your ram will be running at 1066mhz. For those of you who own other motherboard types, I suggest you look into this either on public forums and/or your motherboard's manufacturer's website, should this be an issue for you!
