No problems yet! 4/22/2014 11:25:08 AM

Pros: I'm not too much of an expert on the intricacies of RAM, however I've had no problems with this purchase or this group. The only "issue" I had was between the desk and chair (User issues) because it's only 3 sticks which doesn't work with the machine I bought (1, 2, or 4 only). I only mention this so that other people who might not know as much about RAM realize this before purchasing. I have purchased a 4th stick of the same type and have never been happier.

Cons: Absolutely none so far!

Nice 12G pool of RAM for my system to work with.

Works Great! 4/25/2013 12:08:48 PM

Pros: Good speed, free shipping, I bought 2 sets of this RAM to max out my Asus Sabertooth X58 system and couldn't be happier. Worked right out of the box and BIOS detected correct speed once booted up. Been running 24/7 for the past 5 days without issues. Windows 7 Ultimate x64 SP1 Windows Experience Index rates it at 7.5, but I rarely go by that rating to know if the RAM is performing well, but thought I might mention it.

Cons: none, so far

Overall Review: RAM has short heat spreaders compared to some other Kingston modules so if you're hurting for space in and around your RAM slots this would work great.

Lots of RAM, not impressed 4/11/2013 11:36:00 AM

Pros: Good amount of RAM

Cons: Doesn't OC to 1600. I can only get it to run stably at 1400 MHZ despite the fact it should have been supported by my Motherboard.

Overall Review: I got this because I thought I'd be able to get it running at 1600 MHZ. But I won't bother with it from Kingston next time. I Think 2 sticks would have gone better, as I can get 2 sticks / 8 GB to run fine at 1600 MHZ

NOTE: I realize this could be the MOBO's fault, but I'm setting both to a 3 since they should work together

Manufacturer Response:
Hi Robert,
I'm Jewel with Kingston Technical Support. We're sorry for the issue you've experienced with the RAM. We are here to help and can advise you on the proper timing settings or configuration needed to achieve 1600Mhz speed. Please be aware that this speed would need to be supported by both your motherboard AND processor in order to work correctly. Processors contain the memory controller and if it does not support 1600Mhz speed it would cause system instability even when using the proper timing settings. If you would like additional assistance, please call us at 1-800-435-0640 (USA and Canada only) M - F 6am - 6pm PT and I or another available Technician will assist you. Please be sure to have the part in question on hand when you call.

Thank you for selecting Kingston as your upgrade partner.

a not needed but still nice improvement 3/19/2013 6:19:26 AM

Pros: I was having issues with a server ad one of the things that it could have been was the memory, while I thought it unlikely I played it safe and replaced the 24GB with this. One advantage this memory had over the older is it was a higher speed which lead to better overall performance. Turns out the memory was not the problem, and since I could use the 24GB in another system it was not a waste, For you who want to know it turned out to be a Microcode (some call this Firmware) bug in a Corsair SSD that caused the system to crash at the 60 minute mark since re-boot. Updating the drive solved the problem, but the problem gave me a reason to upgrade some of the components.

Cons: none at this time

Awesome 3/13/2013 10:22:06 PM

Pros: Really makes sense to read the manual on the mother board to know exactly what sdram the manufacture recommends! Especially if you have someone put the pc together. Always read the owners manual prior to getting the ram from the store. Odds are you will get the wrong one. Many things matter (eg: Voltage)This ram is just what I needed and it works beautifully. I had 12 gigs for the first year and now have 24 over 6 sticks. You say hauling, I say *ss.

Cons: None
