Big Blue! 11/9/2012 2:06:32 PM

Pros: Stays very cool. Installed without any issues in my wife's ECS A960M-M2 AM3+ AMD 760G MicroATX motherboard. Actually running it at 1680MHz at 1.6 volts (9-11-9-24-1T) with an AthlonIIx4 640 Propus CPU. Not on ECS approved list for the above mentioned motherboard, but still not a problem.

Cons: Not actually a con, but has very large heatsinks. Not sure if I'll ever need that much heatsink as I don't plan on pushing it that hard. This is in my wife's computer, so stability, not high clock speed is all that matters. The heatsinks stick up in front of the intake fan (just a tiny bit) on the Xigmatek Loki 92mm heatsink. Doesn't affect the airflow or temps of the CPU as they are about 1/2 an inch in front of the fan. The intake air rushing past actually helps to keep the already cool RAM even cooler. Pretty much no chance of ever overheating.

Overall Review: Haven't tried it yet, but with the huge heatsinks on this RAM, I think you could push this memory to beyond 1866MHz (will do 1866MHz as shown by a previous reviewer), but at 1680MHz it's just plain solid and fast enough for my wife. Running 210 FSB, so that's why it's at 1680 (must overclock something :) ). Gives a 7.3 WEI score in Windows 7 with the above mentioned processor. Great RAM, especially considering I paid less than twenty dollars for 8 gigs.

Great RAM 9/19/2012 12:58:35 AM

Pros: Powerful heatsinks, very fast ram, might be even faster if overclocked.

Cons: Unnecessarily powerful heatsinks, does not even get warm to the touch. But I am not overclocking the ram. Brushes against the fan on the CM Hyper 2121+ heatsink in bay 1, but still fits.

Overall Review: Case: Rosewill Blackhawk
Mobo: ASRock z77 Extreme4
CPU: i5-3570k
CPU-C: CM Hyper 212+
RAM: Kingston HyperX T1 2x4gb
PSU: SeaSonic M12II 520w
SDD: Samsung 830 128gb

Nice fast ram 7/29/2012 6:51:42 PM

Pros: Very fast and the heatsinks on these things are massive!

Cons: Not so much a con as just a new build quirk, it wasn't seen as 1600 by my new Gigabyte MB right away. Simple solution, just go in and select Profile1 and all your troubles will be magically whisked away!

Overall Review: Not all boards recognize ram at their rated speed til you do a tweek...even brand new boards that SHOULD be seeing it correctly don't always see it as such. Not the ram maker's fault, it's the MB maker's fault.

Good Ram 7/27/2012 12:25:12 PM

Pros: Worked like a charm!! Fast!!

Cons: None.

Overall Review: I am looking into upgrading my CPU cooler and this ram is tall! I hear of issues with the heat spreaders not allowing after market CPU coolers to be installed..
Does anyone know of a compatible high performance CPU cooler for my rig??

Kingston lives up to its name, again 3/26/2012 10:32:01 AM

Pros: -Awesome heatsink (thick aluminum)
-Bios read spd so i didnt have to adjust anything
-Decent OC (running 1866mhz 9-10-9-24-1t)
-Cheaper than ripjaws x 8gb 1600mhz, but with better heatsink and oc capability

Cons: -OC not as high as I expected

Overall Review: Bought this ram on sale for $44.99. Today when it arrived and I removed it from its packaging I was amazed with the quality of the aluminum heatsink. did not feel the slightest bit of heat on the fins after running prime95 blend OC'd. I really recommend this ram esp if you are debating between these and gskill's ripjaws x
